Storyline

Gurtej Singh Kahlon witnesses his family being attacked by British-born Caucasian skinheads, leading to a death in the family. While the identified attackers were never charged by racially biased police, he himself was arrested for defending his family. He swore to change the manner in which East Indians were profiled and set about to build a Mini-India in Southall. He encourages his son, Parghat, to play and excel in cricket as he himself was a fan of the Indian team, especially Lala and his son, Mohinder Ambarnath. But when the time comes for Parghat to be inducted in the English cricket team, he forbids him, gets him to manage a convenience store, and also sets about to arrange marriages and lives of his family with no daring to oppose him. Then mixed-raced Simran Chaggal enters Parghat's life, and with some help from the Kahlon family, gets him to be included in a failing English team. They conspire to keep this information from Gurtej, and even re-name Parghat as 'Kaali'. But it ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Great flick !
12 February 2011 | by nisham99See all my reviews

The movie Patiala House has been much anticipated. Akki shouldn't be disheartened about earlier movies. i still stand by the fact that Chandi chowk was a good movie that went wrong because it was badly edited. Since "waqt"it has been a long time since we saw akki in a serious role. I can't help talking about him because he is my favourite. Fresh pairing of Akshay and Anushka adds a freshness and appeal to the film. Again additions of new actors was a good idea because it encourages people to appreciate new talent. Also a treat for lovers of Rishi Kapoor- Dimple Kapadia fans. People should appreciate this film as a movie on its own and not compare it to other cricket movies. The movie is not concentrating on cricket but on a person's dreams and aspirations. If you love akshay just like me,then you should watch it!
