On February 11, 2011, Akshay Kumar and Anushka Sharma starrer Patiala House has released in theatres. Patiala House’s story is related to cricket. Gattu (Akshay Kumar) was a very promising cricketer but his bauji (Rishi Kapoor) would not allow him to play. Bauji is the head of the Patiala family living in Southhall and his decision is the final decision in the family. Gattu loves bauji very much and sacrifices his dream for his love. His cousins hate him for he does not stand up against bauji. The movie shows how Gattu realizes his dream and finally faces his Bauji.
The storyline is similar to that of Bend It Like Beckham. It is an inspirational movie and Akshay Kumar’s character is different. Akshay played the role of a cricketer and he worked very hard to portray the character properly. Anushka Sharma is Akshay Kumar’s love interest. She encourages him to pursue his dream. Rishi Kapoor also played his part very well.
From July 2010 till now this is the fourth movie of Akshay Kumar along with Khatta Meetha, Action Replayy, and Tees Maar Khan. For this reason, people might get tired of seeing too much Akshay Kumar. Moreover, the ICC World Cup Cricket 2011 is starting. Hence, there is not much hope for this movie. Still, Akshay Kumar did an exceptional role in the movie and if you are a diehard Akshay Kumar fan you should check it out.
