The Gold teaser was released yesterday and has already opened to a great response from the audience. The movie is based on post-independence India and their quest to won a gold for the new India, the one which is not under the British Raj.
The teaser opens up to Akshay’s character’s narration who says he holds only two things dear – Hockey and his country. Through voice-over narration, the character remarks that though India has three gold medals, they were all won under British rule. So, he promises to put together a team that will bring India glory with its first-ever gold medal as a free nation in 1948 at the 14th Olympic Games at London.
Filled with small yet powerful and dramatic clippings from the movie, Gold teaser is just jam-packed with everything that would make the audience visit the theatres to see the movie.
