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)

Advani lives up to expectations - Again.
20 February 2011 | by wolfhuntsvalueSee all my reviews

Saw the movie last night. Well, definitely worth and more. Like some other poster, I refrain from posting reviews, esp. when you feel that IMDb board, when it comes to Indian Cinema, seems manipulated. Movies like Guzzarrish getting high marks is a perfect example...

Patiala house worked for me at several levels. Story was smooth.. Script was tight. Dialogues were crisp. Protag dealing with the demons is well articulated. Anuska's character could have been better developed. Rishi and Dimple play their roles extremely well.

Story has momentum. Script and characters have multi-dimension. Father-Son relationship is easier to relate. Generational gaps are well explored. I am a bit surprised to see below 6 ranking bu imdbers.

Nikhil does a wonderful job on keeping story fluid and engaging. One of the very few movies that I sat through w/o second guessing. Good job!
