Victory is perhaps one of the best sports movies i have ever seen. Of course its predictable but so are all sports movies. Harman's acting was the only reason why i didn't vote it 10/10. The script is taut, emotional and very racy. I loved amrita rau;s performance, she's very pretty too. Victory is beautiful because its not a typical bollywood flick, the romance is not typical bollywood, there's no dancing and prancing around the trees and there's no melodrama despite being strong on emotions. The simple story of a cricketer who rises from ashes to glory is very simply put without going overboard with fancy gimmicks or fancy camera movements. In fact i remember Richard attenborough's quote after Gandhi that "the best films are the ones which are most simply told without complicating issues and without letting technique overtake the storytelling" and i would say the director ajitpal mangit has done exactly that. He is a master storyteller, one of the best from bollywood. VICTORY TO VICTORY
