Five minutes into Speedy Singhs and you know how exactly the film is going to map out.

If you have seen the promos, there are no surprises in the film's storyline. A Canadian citizen with Indian roots, the character played by Vinay Virmani wants to pursue his dream of being an ice hockey player. His dad (Anupam Kher) doesn't hate sports but feels ice hockey will take him nowhere. However with help from his uncle (Gurpreet Guggi), coach (Rob Lowe) and a bunch of large hearted Sikh friends, he manages to rise up the ladder. There are challenges in the form of racism from opponent teams and mischievous relatives (Russell Peters) but with his girlfriend (Camilla Belle) alongside, he manages to defeat all adversities.

Speedy Singhs is a poor fare and will fail to make any mark at the box-office.
You could skip it!

Speedy Singhs is a smart little surprise package. It's a cheerful film that makes you smile with its refined humour, its repartee-filled screenplay, its swiftness at handling the countless relationships and its finely-nuanced performances...
