Right now, Akshay Kumar has been signing movies that is relevant to the society mostly such as Toilet-Ek Prem Katha and Padman. Reema Kagti’s Gold can fall on the same line of movies as it talks about an important part of India’s sporting history. It is a period drama that will take us to the 1948 Olympic Games in London where India has managed to win their first Gold in hockey as a free nation. It is certainly a great story that must be told to the world. Both director Reema Kagti and Pad Man actor Akshay Kumar must be applauded for picking up such an interesting story.
Through the trailer, we have got a little bit of hint about this movie. However, an important detail about the movie has been revealed through recent images from the movie. In the picture, Akshay has been looking really serious and grim. The still has come with a caption that says, “15th August, 1936- Berlin Olympics. Uss din Tapan Das ko pata chala ki apna desh ghulam ho, toh kaisa lagta hai. #Gold.”
Due to theme of the movie, pride must be seen in the eyes of the people certainly. Therefore, movie release on the Independence Day can be considered as perfect. Actually, emphasis has been given on the fact that Indians have won a battle here against the British without bloodshed. The recent teaser regarding anthem may give you goosebumps without any doubt. For almost 200 years, Indians have stand up to the British National Anthem as they have been a part of British colonies.
