Gold – A Predictable Patriotic Delight
With films like Toilet – Ek Prem Katha, Jolly LLB 2, Air Lift and Pad Man, Akshay Kumar has successfully changed his “Khiladi” avatar to a performance based actor who is proficient is giving meaningful, subject oriented films as well as masala entertainers. Akki does 2 – 4 films a year and all become super duper hit; that’s the kind of pull Akshay Kumar has. With Gold, Akshay Kumar is back with elan, he with his team of fellow actors gives a solid film for those who are patriotic, appreciate films on true incidents and sports. Gold is a film which is backed with multiple actors like Kunal Kapoor, Vineet Singh, Mouni Roy and Amit Sadh. Let’s see what Reema Kagti’s Gold has in store for the audience.
Gold is based on the true incident and life of Tapan Das (Akshay Kumar) who wants to defeat Britain in their home-ground in Hockey Olympics. How Tapan Das achieves his dream and make a mark in the history of Olympics. Rest of the cast and characters help in building and shaping up the story.
Gold is a feel good film which is very predictable and audience know what will happen next but what makes it a stellar watch is its script, performances and patriotic zing. Performance wise Akshay Kumar stands out with bravura performance, Mouni Roy impressive with his diction and dialect, Kunal Kapoor gives a mature performance, Amit Sadh looks the character and Vineet singh is effective.
