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)

Should one watch this movie?
24 August 2012 | by (Washington D.C., United States) – See all my reviews

So I have been hating Hindi movies for a while now...cuz the plots are usually so stupid and have ever cheap visual effects. Especially some of the movie that have been done by Akshay Kumar recently, because i don't know are they supposed to be funny? They really are not...

Well this movie was a little different where the acting that Akshay Kumar has done was kind of good. It is a good believable plot where the old man of the house lives in an older thinking. But they songs are good, the cast of the movie is not bad and only make it better. Although the story is a little over stretched but hey which Hindi movie isn't!

But I give this movie a 5, cuz it still an OK movie. Its not the greatest level of acting but it is still a good watch. I would watch it at least once.
