Product Description

At Patiala House lives the Kahlon family ruled by Bauji. They follow his diktats as he tries to hold onto his Indian values in the land of the goras .

The younger generation at the Patiala House wants to assert themselves and follow their dreams but are held back by their respect and love for Bauji and the shining example of Bauji s eldest son, Parghat Singh Kahlon aka Gattu. Gattu gave up his dream at the altar of Bauji s biases.

His reward: For the last 17 years he has been working in a corner store. Will Bauji loosen his hold and let the youngsters find their own dreams instead of following his?Will Gattu get a second chance to live his life? What s more important: family or dreams? And why must we choose one or the other?

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

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.
