Predictably, the men in blue do march to victory; it's just a few shades darker than I would have liked to cheer for.

Patiala House never soars but it is a notch better than the mediocre fare that we see every week. If you have patience and not much else going on.

A while ago, I posed a question on Twitter and Facebook, asking people what their expectations were from Patiala House.

Pargat Singh Kahlon (Akshay Kumar) is a shadow of a man. Why? Because his autocratic dad (Rishi Kapoor) scarred by the racist attacks against Indians in Southall has forced his talented pace bowler son to run a grocery store rather than play cricket for t

With lines written in Yash Chopra land--kal chup ek biwi thi, aaj bol ek maa rahi hai; and gaaliyon ka shor taaliyon main chhup jayega--and enough cricket to keep the kids happy, this is a family drama for the family.

Patiala House is the 90's family melodrama at its best. If such movies appeal to you book yourself a ticket you won't be disappointed.

Sports movies have been part and parcel of the movie world since a long time. In India, we have had Awwal Number, Malamaal and others before someone went ahead and created Lagaan and Chak De India. The thing with sports related movies is that unless it is

One can't deny the fact that audience is well prepared for the mandatory high, low and ending points of 'Patiala House'. You know that Akshay would be hesitant to pursue his cricket dreams all over again, you know that entry of Anushka in his life would be a motivating factor, you know that his family would rally around him, you know that initially his father (Rishi Kapoor) would be against him, you know that Dimple will stand besides her husband only to come up with a final outburst (a la Jaya Bhaduri in 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham') and you of course know that eventually all would be well!

The music is interesting. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy try their best to keep it North Indian and in some segments they do well. Overall, Patiala House makes for an interesting watch. It is the first family drama this year and well, Nikhil Advani is a Karan Johar p
