Can get through it once
Supposedly dedicated to all women, most of the movie features only the two characters played by Vijay. In comparison to movies like Chak De India, Saala Khadoos and Dangal, where a good portion of the movie showed the players and they were given roles of almost equal importance to the coaches, this is in no way a sports movie. Only a few matches involving the girls are shown and that too only in the second half. The "sports" scenes in the first half feature only Vijay. Even in the second half most of the importance is given only to Vijay's character. Almost all other characters, including that of the villain (played by Jackie Shroff), are only secondary. I would rate this as the worst Vijay movie to date.
Betaal Pachisi (1997)
A fantasy mishmash
Betaal Pachisi aired off and on between 1997 and 1998 on Doordarshan. It is a fantasy based very loosely on the Phantom. The titles song is by Asha Bhonsle, who also rendered the Tamil version (a very good accent though one can make out in places that it is done by a non-Tamilian).
There are several incidences narrated in this spin-off of the Phantom with several episodes being dedicated to each incidence. Another quirk of this series is that the super-villains of these incidences become harmless jokers in later episodes (mostly after being done in by the hero and having been resurrected in one way or another).
Overall a decent series for children below the age of ten.
