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)

Is this Movie worth a Watch ???
16 February 2011 | by (Copenhagen , Denmark) – See all my reviews

I haven't written movie comments for years, but I feel like this movie deserves a review.

I am one of those guys who has been cursing Akshay Kumar the last 2 years for making stupid movies, and getting a lot of popularity for cheap scale movies which has done big on the Box Office screen....I never really understood why people are so fund of watching the same comedy movies over and over Until the comedy aspect dies in the movie and it gets painful to watch the movie example: Action Replay, Tees Mar Khan etc.

BUT PATIALA HOUSE made me think different regarding Akshay Kumar and his acting....this movie Akki played very well, and showed his acting skills and he deserves to get credit for that. The show stealer in this movie is Rishi Kapoor, he was perfect as Akki's father and made a powerful impact. Rest of the cast was good and acted very matured and it was good to see Dimple Kapadia again...Anushka Sharma is a delight to watch, every entry she makes the crowd smile, and I can see her one day becoming a top actress in Bollywood.

so Is this movie worth a One time Watch: YES and Is this movie worth a Two time Watch: YES

Go for this movie, its worth every single cent.
