PATIALA HOUSE is a film about affections, relationships and household attachment, about values and trying to amend to conflicting principles that usually pick up when one move to another country. More prominently, it's about dreams and ambitions and how destiny offers you a second opportunity in life. The screenplay of PATIALA HOUSE is unpredictable - indecisive between appealing to run of the grind to flabby moments. The film hubs on the bonding between the father and son, it also interlaces the well-liked sport fine in the tale and that makes for a motivating presentation. The screenplay by Nikhil Advani and Anvita Dutt Guptan has an orderly approach towards the storytelling. Advani who co-wrote the screenplay with Anvita Dutt, works tough to devote plausibility and touching heft into the story.
Nikhil has made sure that under the family attachments and restricted ambitions. The climax is also commanding and the trademark of this venture. Nikhil recovers his place as a convincing narrator, which he had lost position on his earlier films. He exemplifies his ability in the theatrical portions, handling the father-son sequences with handiness.
Nikhil delivers one with tons of splendor, color and enjoyment in Patiala House, a film that's unexpectedly alright in spite of the obviousness of its basic plot and slack screenplay. What's praiseworthy about Advani's script and direction is that he never carries too far anything though there is a common inclination with the argument he tackles. The family drama is never exaggerated and is treated with subtleness and adulthood. His hold on the film is so physically powerful that you don't want to depart the hall even when the end-credit song is playing.
Overall, can watch in Multiplexes!
