Review

PATIALA HOUSE is a film about attachments, affiliations and familial bonding. It's a compelling watch, more for its drama and histrionics than anything else. It's a film that explores the father-son relationship and not just those in India, but around the world should be able to relate to the predicament depicted in this film. The hallmark of the film is the merging of its engaging drama with cricket and that's what makes this product stand out from the earlier Akshay starrers. Especially its penultimate 30 minutes, which is the brightest spot of this enterprise. --platform47.com

About the Actor

Akshay Kumar was born as Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia on the 9th September 1967 in Amritsar to a middle class Punjabi household. His father was a government worker. He grew up in Delhi and later in Mumbais Koliwada area. He did his schooling at the Don Bosco School and his college years were spent in Khalsa College, where he showed an inclination for sports. He studied martial arts in Bangkok while working as a chef.

He came back to Delhi to teach martial arts when one of his students suggested he try his hand in modeling, which led to an offer to act in Deedar as the lead actor. Akshay was linked with several of his co-stars like Raveena Tandon, Shilpa Shetty, Pooja Batra and even Rekha. He is currently married to actress turned entrepreneur Twinkle Khanna and they have a son Araav.

Akshay Kumar didnt grab any headlines with his debut Saugandh in 1991. Deedar, Dancer and Khiladi were released in 1992. With Khiladi being one of the biggest hits of the year. In 1993, he came out with atleast six movies all of which fell flat. But he more than made up for it in 1994 with hits like Mohra with Raveena Tandon, Yeh Dillagi with Kajol and Saif Ali Khan and Mein Khiladi Tu Anari with Saif Ali Khan and Shilpa Shetty. He received a nomination for the Filmfare Best Actor award for his romantic role in Yeh Dillagi.

He tried his hand in the comedy stream quite successfully in 2000 with Hera Pheri, which was a laugh riot. Dhadkan with pal Suneil Shetty and Shilpa Shetty also was a good performer at the box office. In 2006 he starred in a sequel to Hera Pheri titled Phir Hera Pheri. As was the former, the sequel became a huge success at the box office. He established himself as a successful comedy actor with a series of comedy releases.

2007 proved to be Kumar's most successful year during his career in the industry, and as described by box office analysts, ""probably the best ever recorded by an actor, with four outright hits and no flops."" Singh Is Kinng was a huge success at the box office and broke the first-week worldwide record of Om Shanti Om, the previous highest figure. He also made a debut on the small screen with Fear Factor India.

This touching performance of a dream destroyed and reborn again like a phoenix is a real gem. Great acting and sound trak as well. You go from depressed to happy and elated as he find's himself again, not to mention way better looking again ....couldn't help it insert chuckle here.

NRI Sikh Indians in London in the 80's were being brutalized by skin heads and after suffering the vicious murder of a family member Gattus (Akshay) father becomes a vigilant activist. Terrified for the safety of her child, Gattus mother ( Akshay's real life mother in law Dimple Kapadia) cuts her son's hair off to make him appear more overtly British .This is something a Sikh would normally never tolerate. He is allowed to continue this way in his youth and he is raised in British schools as a British citizen .The story is told with sporadic vocal overlays by Akshay as Gattu . It is all pertinent and the tonal quality of his voice helps to keep an extended empathy in the story line. You see him become a cricket superstar at his schools . He has been raised by his parents to love the game of cricket and has the chance after school to play for his home team London southall. His dad screams and carries on and emotionally bullies and blackmails him into giving up his dream. No son of his will play for the British . Gattu points out that he can't play for India because he is a British citizen . This makes no difference to his father . His word is Law. Flash forward to the future and he's a wooden obedient convenience store owner. A dream in suspended animation trapped in an emotional wasteland. Everyone in the extended family has been bullied into doing what Gattus father, Gurtej, is comfortable with . Forget any aspirations you might have.

I notice that I tend to love movies that many Indian reviewers don't like -- maybe it is a cultural thing. First, I love Akshay Kumar and try to watch everything he is in. Second, I love Anushka Sharma and I think they work well together. It's a classic story of father/son conflict with an Indian twist. For Americans, it may not seem very realistic because of the amount of control the father has over the son, but accept the cultural differences and go with it. Attractive and funny cast and some good songs.

I really liked this story. You care about the characters and their triumphs. I really didn't understand all the dancing and what it had to do with the story, but all in all it was a good movie.

The movie was ok. I would have liked to see more musical numbers. I was really upset by the ring tone adverts that would pop on the screen during the film.
