Patiala House tells the story the "Kahlon" family who resides in London and focuses on Parghat Singh Kahlon aka Gattu (Akshay Kumar) who, deep within is a natural born cricketer but his talent is held back by his father Gurtej Singh Kahlon (Rishi Kapoor), who forces him to take care of the family grocery store rather than joining the England cricket team due to his personal fears. As fate has it, Simran (Anushka Sharma) comes in and she not only falls for Gattu but encourages him to overcome his fear and join the cricket team as well. With the support of his mother (Dimple Kapadia) and his girlfriend, Gattu not only have to face his internal fear but also the challenge to convince his father about cricket along the way.
Akshay Kumar is in his usual role again. Like his happy-go-lucky character which does not differ much from his previous films, "Patiala House" does give a bit more of Akshay's emotional side than his much earlier film entitled "Dhadkan". It looks as if Anushka Sharma has been a seasoned actress since her debut back in 2008 but her performance keeps on improving throughout the movie. At the same time, her classic beauty looks resembles a lot of the late actress "Divya Bharti" back in the early 90s. Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia lend a decent support to the lead actors as well in the movie.
The film's storyline is very predictable from the beginning as the plot has nothing new to offer from other Bollywood cricket movies. There were some serious moments between the father and son scene but it is not an all out serious movie either where lighter moments are injected in a timely manner which keeps the film going in a decent pace. With an expected plot, comes the sugary, tradiotional as well as true Bollywood happy ending.
This movie somehow could not run without using the over-used foreign background which in this case is the London City. For "Patiala House", the cinematography and shots of the city are of course well presented but the effects were decent on an average scale.
In the songs department, music and background composers Shankar-Ehsan-Loy provide an upright melodious soundtrack for the film. "Kyu Main Jagoon" by Shafqat Amanat Ali is definitely the highlight of the film's score. Other notable songs include "Longda Laskara" & "Role Pa Gaya" by Jasbir Jassi, Mahalaxmi & Hard Kaur which fall under the easy listening type of genre.
"Patiala House" in overall is a predictable movie filled with lots of family emotions and drama. Many might agree that this film is possibly the director Nikhil Advani's best work since "Kal Ho Na Ho" but some will argue that the film still need improvements in quite a few aspects other than boasting a top-notch Bollywood cast ensemble in its lineup. A somewhat decent watch for Hindi movie lovers to enjoy.
