A house with 22 members both young and old ruled by an autocratic and big headed Gurtej Singh Kahlon (Kapoor.)

How a 34 year old ex cricketer who has been forced to sacrifice his dreams for his father’s ideals is given a second chance to see it getting fulfilled.


Producers Mukesh Talreja and Bhushan Kumar say, “We feel that this is a film that every Indian will be able to identify with, as almost all Indians at some point have the experience of living in a joint family. Patiala House is a full entertainer with all the ingredients of a family entertainer thrown in.”



Director Nikhil Advani adds, “The essence of Patiala House is pursuing your dream when life gives you a second chance. In this pursuit, Akshay happens to be a cricketer, but he could’ve been a musician or a poet. It can be your story or mine. Patiala House is the story of the Kahlon family, and their travails.”

Patiala House is slated to release on the 11 February, 2011.
