Gold (2018) Movie Review | Gold Movie Starcast
What can be more proud than seeing your country’s flag waving on an international stage in the game? This feeling becomes stronger as the incident is of the 1948 London Olympics, where India has to prove that its supremacy in the games from 1936 to 1948 was not just a matter of chance. This incident is also historic as the Indian hockey team is playing here only after a year of independence.
Gold (2018) Movie Review
‘Gold’ shows the journey of this team full of passion, who raised its flag in front of Britain’s 200 years of slavery. The story of the film starts from 1936 when the Indian hockey team won gold for the third consecutive time at the Berlin Olympics. Then this team was called the British India team and it was run by the British Raj. A Bengali junior manager of the team resolved to give gold to the independent India team. His dream was to light the Indian flag in 1948 on the British soil.
Akshay Kumar has played his character as a dhoti-wearing team manager, while at the same time he also easily switches on dramatic and emotional scenes. Kunal Kapoor has done a fantastic job as the coach of the first hockey player and then the hockey team.Moni Rai has played her small role of Bengali wife effectively. ‘Gold’ is not just a movie made on hockey but it is a period movie that lasts the period that has been forgotten a long time ago. It also shows the painful incident of division which divided the country into two parts with great cruelty.
