A sweet little movie. Kind of low-budget and predictable. But it had some funny moments, and a good message.

Tina R. Cooper says: "This movie shows: How each cultures while different are basically the same", all have family, friends, desires, and hopes". Funny & entertaining!

Great, funny Bollywood/hockey movie, they even throw Drake and Ludicris into it, not sure why?, but def. worth watching.

Quirky, like the Canadian mosaic. A Canadian hockey story with an East Indian team set in Toronto. We get to view Canadian life from inside the lives of this extended East Indian family. A taste of their heritage, culture, humor, agonies and triumphs.

Maybe the writing could have been a bit tighter, but the portrayal of each character was so believable and engaging. I recommend this for a laugh, for enlightenment and just for entertainment.

really i'm not sure how you couldn't watch this. it could have been better, i don't think they would have had to put too much effort into it either, but what do you do.

Not a film I would usually give a passing grade, but this one worked. The colourful wedding outfits was a treat visually. Peters gives a few 1 liners which were great (similiar to his comedy routines) Quite predictable, but fun regardless

Good - Breakaway (2011) 101 min. You are all invited to a Sikh wedding and while a wedding was taking place, a hockey game broke out. I had very little expectations for this Canadian film but was converted after the first 5 minutes of watching this humble and fun film from start to finish. The film employs the "prodigal son" theme to a sentimental and rewarding ending. Yes, the acting isn't the greatest and production values are as expected of a low budget film but heck it was fun to watch. What the film does have in droves is wonderful characters and a timeless story.
