Gold is no Chak De India or Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. But it has its heart at the right place and leaves a tremendous impact. The film is long, few sequences are cliched and songs are far too many. But on the plus side, the drama on the field and outside is quite intriguing and entertaining. Also it’s praiseworthy how the makers played the India Pakistan angle in a unique way. The best however is reserved for the finale. It is bound to tense and move viewers. Akshay Kumar as expected dominates the film though he’s merely playing the manager here. But the way his character doesn’t give up and manages to do the unthinkable is very well shown and performed. Mouni Roy looks lovely and is a fine performer. Sadly her role is very limited. Same goes for Kunal Kapoor. Amit Sadh rocks the show and he gets to play a great character. Sunny Kaushal would surely win hearts. He’s very endearing and enhances impact in pre climax. Vineet Kumar Singh‘s track is unpredictable and also a surprise. Performance wise, he’s first rate. Despite some loose ends, here’s hoping Gold wins big time!
My rating – *** ½ out of 5!
