• This film may work for those who miss old-fashioned melodramatic entertainers, but I was bored. I’m going with one-and-a-half out of five for director Nikhil Advani‚Äôs ‘Patiala House’. Decide for yourself if it’s your cup of tea.

    The writing is smart, the lines are life-like, the characters feel right. The supporting cast is especially good, keeping things moving when the rest threaten to stop in their tracks.

    This picture of hers does have a back-story. Whether it matters at all, is the point. Or, maybe not. The Brit-Indian cricketing hero never faces the Indian team in the world cup either. A real conflict in a story can be avoided too. It’s all good, this Patiala peg. Just chug de phatte! We’re all about Bollywood and cricket ‘n’ all, innit?

  • Patiala House never soars but it is a notch better than the mediocre fare that we see every week. If you have patience and not much else going on, check it out.

  • On the whole, Patiala House is an ordinary fare which will face an uphill task at the box-office. It has taken a very dull start and that will tell on its ultimate tally at the box-office.

  • Overall, Patiala House makes for an interesting watch. It is the first family drama this year and well, Nikhil Advani is a Karan Johar prot
