He is able to deliver one of the finest performances of his career. The portrayal of Raghubir Pratap Singh as the best performance was under the filmography of Amit Sadh. He gives a flawless portrayal as a royal in the film & share some outstanding scenes with the team. Vineet Singh is brilliant after his performance in Mukkabaaz. Mouni Roy is great as a Bengali wife and nails the accent. She’s delightful and gives a natural look.

Sachin-Jigar’s Chad Gayi Hai is a great song of the lot and enhances the entertainment value to the story. Akshay Kumar’s dance makes an average song like Monobina bearable. Naino Ne Bandhi showss the chemistry between Akshay and Mouni. The background score by Sachin-Jigar is great and fit for a film like Gold needed.

Gold as seen in the film is all about team work and their victory is entertaining. Akshay Kumar is brilliant in Gold and the film should not be missed.
