Gold tells the real-life story of India’s participation and victory in 1948 as a free, independent country. The setting is of the 1948 era when Indian Hockey Team still played under the British nametag. It took 12 years for the country to win a Gold as a free country. According to director Reema Kagti, the film is a fictional account of the events leading up to India’s victory. The backdrop is set in the 1930s and 40s. What’s best? This Independence Day will mark 70 years of Indian Hockey team’s Gold victory at the Olympics

The official announcement of the film came in October 2016 with Akshay Kumar, confirming his role in the film. The actor tweeted a monochrome image and let his fans know about the first-day shoot of Gold. This happened in early June this year and since then, there were rumors that the film will release close to August 15. Akshay Kumar released the first poster of Gold on his twitter handle on 12 June.

The trailer of Gold released on 25th June and received widespread attention. It is more than 2 minutes long and chronicles the journey of a lone man trying to inspire the Indian members in the Hockey team to get together to play for independent India and not for the British empire. In the trailer we see Akshay Kumar, one of the hockey players, expressing his frustration at playing under the British flag. Gold trailer seems to be a mixture of invoking sports and patriotic films, all at once. Set in pre-independence India, there were rumors of the lead character Tapan Das being based on a real-life character and hence, a biopic. However, makers Reema Kagti and Ritesh Sidhwani denied any such claims saying the backdrop was based on India’s victory in the 1948 Olympics, but not on a specific person.

Gold was shot in both India and United Kingdom. Some parts of it have also been shot in Punjab. Hockey player Sandeep Singh was asked to train the actors in the game. The teaser released on February 5 too much anticipation and speculations.

Gold Star Cast:

Akshay Kumar seemed to be the obvious choice for the film considering his physical fitness as well as the fact that he had starred and produced films like Padman and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, based on social issues. He plays Tapan Das, a hockey coach, who dreams that his team will one day play for India as an independent nation. The role of his wife Monobina Das required a Bengali actress. Rumour mills were buzzing that Ekta Kapoor’s launch TV actress Mouni Roy will be debuting opposite Akshay Kumar. Once the trailer came in, the matter was put to rest. The supporting actors are Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh, Vineet Kumar Singh, Nikita Dutta and Dalip Tahil.

Gold Budget Breakdown, Prediction & Box Office Collection:

Since the film is a historic sports drama, recreating certain sequences, scenes, and places is an important task. We expect Gold Budget to be somewhere around ₹80-90 Crores.

Going by how sports films have fared so far at the box office, it remains to be seen how far this film goes. The only film based on Hockey to have set the box office on fire was Chak De India in 2007. Soorma, starring Diljit Dosanjh could not do much at the BO in spite of it being a biopic on Sandeep Singh. Since Gold has a much bigger star cast and a big banner producing it along with its release on Independence Day, we expect people will flock to the theatres to watch it.

Gold box office collection should be close to ₹100 Crores if all goes well.

Gold Review & Hit or Flop:

Gold was initially thought to be a biopic on Balbir Singh, the hockey captain who lead the Indian Hockey Team to victory in 1948. However, once that was rubbished, it was revealed that Gold is the story of a hockey coach who is inspired to train the team members to play as Indian players. Akshay Kumar and his brand of socially relevant cinema is a hit with the audiences anyway.

Gold Review: Gold Is More Than Just The Medal

Films on hockey have been rare and we have Independence Day, the perfect day to release patriotic films. The cast is impressive with the best actors suitable for the roles they are essaying. We expect the film to work well at the Box Office. Though John Abraham’s Satyamev Jayate is releasing on the same day, you never know, the audience might choose one more close to reality.
