Gold is a commendable sport film for its thrilling elements and stellar performances of entire star !!

After the success of Chak De India, another hockey based sport film is Reema Kagti’s Gold starring Akshay Kumar with patriotic speech before the climactic match and the final victory. A fictional story, inspired by true events and people, of India’s first gold medal win as an independent nation at the 1948 Olympics in London. ‘Gold’ recreates the journey of this spirited and lesser-known team that upstaged the British at the 1948 Olympics and made a statement against the English subjugation of 200 years.
 
As per story, the film begins in 1936, when India made big impact in world hockey and won its third consecutive gold at the Berlin Olympics. This team was called British India team and was managed by the British Raj. Tapan Das (Akshay), the functionally alcoholic manager of the hockey team under British India, dreams of winning the Olympic gold medal for free India and sets about forming a team on knowing that India will soon attain Independence. But, even as he forms the team, it is ripped apart by Partition, which not only divides the country, but also the team and now, Tapan is racing against time to form a new team for the 1948 Olympics in London. Will Tapan manage to do it in time and make his dream come true?
 
Akshay Kumar’s stellar performance as the ‘Pagal Bengali’ Tapan Das is a remarkable. Mouni Roy as Akshay’s feisty wife is delightful to watch. The remaining cast as Kunal Kapoor, Vineet Kumar Singh, Amit Sadh and Sunny Kaushal are really good and gives able support to Akshay.
 
Reema Kagti tells an insightful and engaging story and take us back to that moment in history, which is not often spoken about or celebrated. Film Gold has certain elements that will remind you of Shimit Amin’s Chak De India starring Shah Rukh Khan. There is a competition between two players who don’t co-operate with each other on the field, a patriotic speech by the manager to inspire the players and bring them together and a benched player who is brought to play during the finals. The hockey matches have been choreographed brilliantly and will bring you to the edge of your seats with your nails between your teeth. The production design and costumes, which play an integral part in depicting the era, are top notch. The first half is slow paced and the film takes quite a while to establish the characters and set up the plot.
 
Overall, Gold is a commendable sport film for its thrilling elements and stellar performances of entire star cast.
