Gold follows the formula. The film has been written and directed by Reema Kagti who earlier made Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd. and Talaash. The straitjacket of the sports film seems to have flattened her distinctive voice – this is a director whose first film features a couple who turn out to be superheroes. But here, there is no irreverence or edginess – Gold is a straight narrative told with the subtlety of a sledgehammer. The beats are predictable. And yet, Reema manages to make them effective. By the time, the hard-earned victory came, I was genuinely moved.

Rajesh Devraj and Reema Kagti have penned a story that may not be novel as one has seen earlier films like Chak De! India and Lagaan but yet, it has a fair amount of freshness and the problems and, therefore, the solutions are different. On the whole, Gold will definitely strike gold at the box-office. It will keep everyone — the audience, the producers, distributors and exhibitors — happy and beaming with joy. This one is yet another Rs. 100-crore film from Akshay Kumar.

Hockey, at its best, is an incredibly fast-paced game and any film about the sport has got to capture that inherent momentum for it to work. Gold fails to do that, dragged down by a storyline that puts too much store by the anticipated crowd-pulling power of a Bollywood A-lister. The script, and the real events that inspired it, take a backseat in the process. As a result, what could have been a blinder of a movie barely manages to hobble its way to a climax that holds no surprises because it is a part of Indian sporting folklore.

Gold can’t boast of a great CGI though. Actors try to make up for a little slack in pace, but its capacity to moist your eyes at will is Gold’s real strength. Akshay is in top form and this is your must watch Independence Day film.​

‘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. Reema Kagti tells an insightful and entertaining story and take us back to that moment in history, which is not often spoken about or celebrated.The first half is slow paced and the film takes quite a while to establish the characters and set up the plot. As we witness India winning its first gold as a free nation, you also see the Pakistani players cheer for Indians playing on the field. Moments like this, make ‘Gold’ a film which is more just a sports drama. This one is surely worth its weight in gold.

Gold is inspired by India winning its first gold medal as a free country at the 1948 Olympics in Britain. Winning over our erstwhile colonial masters would have been sweet indeed and the story loses none of its strength as it is narrated in Gold. Overall, Gold is a well plotted drama that sometimes devolves into schmaltz and melodrama. However, it gives us solid two-and-half hours of tricolour hued entertainment. We suggest XL sized popcorn tubs.

Reema Kagti and Rajesh Devraj’s script is not a true account of a real-life incident, but is a fictional and gripping take on the actual story of free India’s first gold. There’s never a dull moment and Kagti’s direction deserves credit for it. All in all, Akshay and his boys deliver the perfect Independence Day release and win not just gold, but also hearts! Go for ‘Gold’!


Ratings:4/5 Review By: Hungama For:  Bollywood Hungama

Reema Kagti and Rajesh Devraj’s story is surely something that deserves to be told. Of course, it has been dramatized and slightly fictionalized but it’s done well. Reema Kagti’s screenplay is topnotch and she keeps viewers captivated. On the whole, GOLD is a brilliant, touching saga that would surely entertain viewers and make them hoot for the retro men in blue. At the box office, it is sure to strike Gold! Highly recommended!

All said and done, Gold isn’t Gold because of one person. As shown in the film, it’s a team work & hence it’s victorious. Akshay Kumar is unstoppable & Gold will do nothing but add yet another hit to his account. Watch it for the pure and informative entertainment.
