Movies revolving around major historical events have always been appreciated by us. Especially when it comes to sports-drama. Take Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, for example, or Mary Kom or M.S. Dhoni, all of these movies have been welcomed with open arms. A new addition to the list is Gold. This movie's teaser has been long awaited, ever since we caught the first glimpse of its poster. This Akshay Kumar and Mouni Roy starrer is set in post-independence India and is based on the true story of India's first gold medal in hockey as a free nation in the 1948 Olympics.
While the trailer does get our hearts racing, we only catch a fleeting glimpse of Mouni Roy (00:47) in a saree, and hope there is more of her in the movie, what with this being her big Bollywood debut and all!
Everything from the costumes to the music and that running commentary is giving me major historical feels. The movie is expected to hit the theatres on August 15th, 2018.
