It's only when Gold moves away from Akshay Kumar's blundering Bangla and hockey humbug to become a story of grace among go-getters that it comes close to becoming the movie it should have been
Sukanya Verma, Rediff
Based on true events following the exploits of the Indian hockey team that won independant India its first Olympics gold medal in hockey. The conflict is fine, the principle characters beautifully etched, but what drags the film down is its predictability and its slow pace. At 152.42 minutes you want to turn the hockey stick into a sword and run into it

Akshay Kumar Is Biggest Weakness In Film That Glitters Only Intermittently
A fantastic sports drama with great performances by the entire star cast.

We know the story line, we know the climax, but yet you can't help but become a cheerleader. As the drama unfolds and the Indian national anthem plays, few in the audience stood up to pay their respects. It is this moment where the film emerges victorious!
