Mumbai, Aug 15: The Bollywood much-awaited Akshay Kumar and Mouni Roy starrer sports period drama film Gold has finally hit theatres today.
As the country celebrates its 72nd Independence Day, the film takes you on a nostalgic journey to 1948 when the Indian national hockey team, representing an independent India, defeated England at the finals of the 1948 London Olympics to win the gold medal.
In addition to Akshay Kumar, the film also stars Mouni Roy, Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh, Sunny Kaushal and others.
Director Reema Kagti who previously made the delightful Honeymoon Travels and the quiet noir Talaash seems new to this loud, chest-thumping world where the patriotic fervour needs to be spelt out loud and in caps all the time; basically the kind our man Akshay Kumar seems at home with.
