No doubt, Gold is an out-and-out Akshay Kumar film. It’s a patriotic sports drama which is only here to evoke the patriotism in you and make you realise that you cannot take your freedom for granted. Inspired by true events, while Akshay plays the coach of the Indian Hockey Team still playing under the British Raj. He longs for playing for a free India, a dream shared by the team members. They want to break free and sing the National Anthem of India once they win a game and not the British National Anthem. But victory doesn’t come easy as the film shows the reality thereafter. Trust us when we say Gold is ought to strike GOLD when it hits the screens on this Independence Day. The trailer has been so finely cut that few seconds into watching it and you will be instantly transported to the era gone by.
In a film like this which wholly rides on Akshay’s shoulders, you obviously wouldn’t expect much of a screen-time for the supporting cast. Although we agree they are equally crucial in narrating a story but in the end, it’s an Akshay show all together. But look how Mouni Roy, despite having very little screen time in the trailer, has shinned her way out. Marking her debut with Gold, Mouni who plays Akshay’s wife in the film, has so beautifully slipped into her character that you will be bowled over by her strong dialogue delivery in this one of the few scenes she’s got in the trailer. Not to mention, her Bengali look is such an added plus that further compliments her charm.
Written and directed by Reema Kagti, Gold also stars Amit Sadh, Kunal Kapoor, Vineet Singh and is all set to release on August 15, 2018.
