A hockey enthusiast since 12 years of age, Toronto-based Rajvinder Singh, even went to the extent of trimming his hair, discarding his Pagri/turban, did not complete his education, incurred the wrath of his father, Darvesh, who wanted him to be involved in the family business as well as confirm and respect Sikh religion principles and values. Hoping to play professional hockey, Rajvinder, along with other fellow Sikh players, instead finds himself treated as the object of ridicule, referred to as a 'joker', by mainstream Caucasian players. Even his friends tease him and ask him to take up 'Guli Danda' and Kabaddi', while his father makes him work for Uncle Sammy as a truck driver. He is attracted to stunning law student Melissa Winters while her brother, Dan, offers to coach Rajvinder and his team. Unable to get themselves included in any team, they form their own, and call it 'Speedy Singhs'. They then set about to make a name for themselves with a coach who is unable to pronounce ...

There isn't really anything new here in terms of story though; take 'Bend It Like Beckham' move it to Canada and replace soccer with hockey and you have the script but it was still more enjoyable than I expected. Produced with the support of the CBC it's a bit cornball with one cliché after another but it also has a few surprises including Rob Lowe as the Zamboni driving coach and a cameo from Drake.
The story follows indo-Canadian Rajveer Singh, who has the talent to be one of the nation's top hockey players, but finds his dreams in a face-off with his family's traditional beliefs and a father who forbids him to play. With the help of a former NHL coach Rajveer assembles an all Sikh team behind his father's back; however, when his team makes an unexpected run for the Cup, and with the entire Sikh community inspired, Rajveer has to choose between playing on, or respecting his father's wishes.
I did get several laughs along the way, not so much from Russell Peters who should really just stick to his stand up because the man can't act but the dressing room jocularity from team member's was entertaining. Ultimately I liked it especially the last hour which delved into family traditions, acceptance, diversity, relationships and religion. The ending was very good as the run for the cup/Hindi wedding hockey game becomes a true Bollywood mash up 12/27/15
