Brings back memories. On the Sunday it released (I think Aug 11 was the release date), Headlines Today had a piece - "Chak De Chucked", referring to the poor opening. However, as a fan, it was an extremely emotional moment for me when audience in the theatre rose to clap SRK's reaction after the final goal was scored. CDI is not amongst my favourite SRK films as a viewer, but definitely very high as a fan.
The title song went on to become some sort of an anthem in those days, being played out in the background of all TV news clips featuring Indian victory in different sports, coincidentally many taking place a few weeks after this film released. The rest, as they say, is history

I liked the song. Did not know about tits bad reception, I think I watched it first on DVD. Honestly don't understand why it was such a problem, when it clearly was for promotion. Too much importance for songs like that...
