Gold movie review: On Independence Day, Akshay Kumar wins the game, and our hearts
Extra marks to Akshay Kumar for delivering an engrossing performance. Mouni Roy as Akshay's wife Monobina is just the right mixture of crotchety and charming.
Its Independence Day rhetoric can be schmaltzy but is never cloying, asking us, as citizens, to dream and achieve them, over decades and generations, because only that can make a country great.
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.
