Speedy Singhs: Flat aftertaste


Robert Lieberman’s “Speedy Singhs” is a feel-good movie that surprises you with an actual story and one that doesn’t leave the same bitter aftertaste as recent mindless comedies.

The story revolves around an Alladin-faced Rajveer Singh (Vinay Virmani) and the Sikh community he belongs to in Canada. He dreams of playing ice hockey professionally instead of working in the family truck business his father (Anupam Kher) wants him to join.

Rajveer and his friends from the community decide to take on the challenge and play the game in a championship. The team is financially supported by Rajveer’s uncle and it is from his truck company that the team takes ‘Speedy Singhs’ as its name.

Hollywood actor Rob Lowe plays a former player who comes to their rescue as the team coach.
