For the uninitiated, Patiala House is the story of a Sikh joint family. Four generations of the Kahlon family live together, in a suburban house in London. The term 'Patiala' in this film, signifies a fourth generation Sikh household in Southall, London, UK. A house with 22 members both young and old ruled by an autocratic and big headed Gurtej Singh Kahlon (Rishi Kapoor). A house where the disparity in thought between the younger and older generation has reached a simmering boiling point and mutiny, rebellion is round the corner. How a 34 year old ex-cricketer who has been forced to sacrifice his dreams for his fathers ideals is given a second chance to see it getting fulfilled.
Talking about the film, both the producers Mukesh Talreja and Bhushan Kumar, say in unison that, "We feel that this is a film that every Indian will be able to identify with, as almost all Indians at some point have the experience of living in a joint family. Patiala House is a full entertainer with all the ingredients of a family entertainer thrown in."
While Nikhil Advani said, "The essence of Patiala House is pursuing your dream when life gives you a second chance. In this pursuit, Akshay happens to be a cricketer, but he could've been a musician or a poet. It can be your story or mine. Patiala House is the story of the Kahlon family, and their travails."
Patiala House is all set to release on February 11.
