Still I do not confirm, but sure Akshay Kumar this movie has Punjabi touch as like Namaste London, which is one of mine favorite movies ever. Namaste London has really good result at Bollywood Box Office and now we have to wait and watch about Patiala House.
Director Nikhil Advani Bollywood Latest Release Movie Patiala House is about one punjabi guy living in Southall, London, harbours the dream of playing cricket for England, but his autocratic father doesn't want him to play for the "Britishian"
Patiala House Casts - Akshay Kumar, Rishi Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Dimple Kapadia, Prem Chopra, Hard Kaur and Soni Razdan.
Patiala House will have Akshay Kumar playing cricket with real cricketers like Brendon McCullum, Herschelle Gibbs, Kieron Pollard and Andrews Symonds.
The movie also features the veterans like Graham Gooch, Nassir Hussain, Wasim Akram and Matthew Hayden.
Rishi Kapoor as Gurtej Singh Kahlon
1979 - Southall, London, UK. Gurtej Singh Kahlon, 34 years of age, is forever scarred by an incident that led to the murder of his mentor and guardian, the senior advocate leader Mr. Saini, Bauji began hating the British and everything that the country and its people stood for.
Akshay Kumar as Parghat Singh Kahlon
2010 - Southall, London, UK. Parghat Singh Kahlon (Gattu,) age 34 years has just woken up like he has every morning for the last 17 years. He will walk across Southall. He will open the corner store across the tube station.
Anushka is an integral part of the story. She is Akshay's shoulder, an unconditional support for him and she fits perfectly into her character. Amongst the plethora of actors, Armaan Kirmani [as Akshay's brother] is excellent, Jeneva Talwar [as Armaan's pregnant wife, Akshay's sis-in-law] is top notch and Usman Qureshi [essaying Akshay's earlier years] is natural. Tinnu Anand is competent, as always. Prem Chopra is okay. Soni Razdan does a fair job. The kid who plays Anushka's brother is smart.
In his store, Parghat will hear the neighborhood boys playing cricket in the back alley. He will remember a dream that could have become a reality. He will tend to his customers. Parghat will watch his father ruling a house, a family, a community like he has for the last 25 years. He will silently tolerate the snide remarks and insults passed by a younger generation. He will pour his heart out to his neighbours adopted brother. He will understand the bitterness of his siblings.
He will identify with their shattered dreams. He will participate to begin a change. He will finally summon the courage to challenge his father and start a movement that will shake the very foundations of Patiala House.
The film has some striking moments and I would like to single out the ones when writers Nikhil Advani and Anvita Dutt Guptan take you back in time to a younger Rishi Kapoor and Akshay's childhood.
On the whole, 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.
