Movie Info

Rajveer Singh is a 21 year old young man dreaming of a professional hockey career. We open with him dreaming of scoring a game winning goal, followed by a moment of bliss as beautiful girls surround him. Unquestionably, he has the talent to be an accomplished player, but faces many hurdles, the biggest of which is himself. Unable to find a foothold in the game, Rajveer takes matters into his own hands by creating an all Indian hockey team (The Speedy Singhs), finding a coach and then bringing on

With a script credited to five writers including its star Vinay Virmani, it is a movie that keeps skating madly off in different directions and desperately needs more coaching than director Robert Lieberman provides.

[A] pleasant timewaster, which has a good cast but a not-so-good script.

There are no surprises here, with father-son crisis and reconciliation, scaled-down quasi-Bollywood production numbers and the climactic big game all arriving on cue.

Much better than the other reviews reflect. A feel-good entertainment that sheds light on the misunderstood but heroic Sikh peoples. Now available on Netflix streaming, see for yourself and don't rely on the critics.

The shakiest scenes in Breakaway, a hockey-meets-Bollywood mash-up about skating Sikh-Canadians, occur on the ice. Take that for what you will. The rest of this nimbly-paced but routinely-plotted sports fable is tolerably more entertaining.

Audience Reviews for Breakaway

It's a feel-good sports story you've seen a hundred times before, but this time with a twist: the hockey team isn't just seeking to become improbable champions, it's telling a larger story about acceptance and diversity. A bit hokey - produced with the support of the CBC, and without a doubt a movie that will be shown in schools coast-to-coast - the script trots out one cliched piece of dialogue after another, but the Bollywood indulgences, the Sports Movie Template - complete with Tournament Ladder Climbing Montage (TM) - and the central character's quest for his father's approval (and a new love, too) combine to make this an enjoyable, simple film. Probably not as good as some other movies I've given three stars to, but I was able to look past the annoying similarities to cheesy Tim Hortons commercials and follow the characters, particularly the lead, Rajveer (Vinay Virmani). Russell Peters can't really act, but hey, what can you do? I'm finding it really hard to be severe with this film. It seems designed to make viewers happy, and for this one, it did the job.
