Films become important for everything they say, and sometimes for what they dont. Before we sit down and thrash out a Gold movie review, it is important to list everything that Akshay Kumars Independence Day offering is not.

Theres something about a sports drama, isnt it? Much like a real-life duel, watching even a staged match gives you an adrenaline rush like nothing else. Throw in a little patriotism in the mix and you have yourself a winner. Which explains why so many filmmakers want to tap into the potential of such stories. And hockey matches provide ample scope to make for a good drama. With team conflicts, internal politics and individual aspirations, it is no wonder that the sport finds more favour with Bollywood than cricket. Gold is the latest film to have tapped the topic. ...Read full review
