The conflict between the father and son [the roles are enacted by Rishi Kapoor and Akshay] comes across extremely well in the promo and if the film is as impressive as its first promo, then Nikhil Advani would be credited for getting him back to serious roles after a hiatus. Besides the volatile relationship between the father and son, Patiala House also catches your eye because it talks of cricket, which is the favourite sport of Indians.
Nikhil made a terrific debut with Kal Ho Naa Ho and seems like the talented director returns to narrate a strong emotional story in Patiala House.
The moment you think of Akshay Kumar, images of his comic entertainers conjure up in front of your eyes. That Akshay is synonymous with comedy is well known by now. And one expects his next release Patiala House to be a rib-tickling entertainer as well. But the first promo of the film catches you completely unaware. It tilts towards strong emotions. It tugs at your heartstrings.
