Alright so I noticed one of the biggest films to hit theaters in Canada isn't mentioned anywhere on VGChartz or the interwebs. The movie's name is BreakAway and it stars one of the biggest comedians on Earth Russel Peters amongst other big name actors and actresses from both Hollywood and Bollywood.
The premise of the film is that a young indo-Canadian finds himself having to choose a career in Hockey or the love of his family. The young man makes several decisions which lead to the creation of the first all indo-Canadian hockey team. The film is obviously a comedy and it really holds its own, but it has a great underlying message about multiculturalism, acceptance , perseverance and family.
To be honest the only reason I went was to see Russel Peters I thought he would make the movie. But after leaving the theater honestly he wasn't even a fraction of the laughter and entertainment that the film provided. I was so shocked I actually really enjoyed the movie and I hate sports films.
This is not a review, I'd get to carried away and write a few paragraphs. I just wanted to create a thread that talks about the biggest multicultural film to come this year, or even in the near past or future. I suggest everyone see this film , especially if your Canadian, Indian, Hockey lover, multicultural or love comedies or sports movies.
This is a must see, I feel sorry for anyone who is unable to watch this comedic multicultural master piece. Sure it isn't Star Wars or one of the best films of all time, but it is a good movie none the less and one of the best to come out this year!
What do you think it will gross at the Box office? How many people do you think will see it? Have you seen it what did you think? Are you going to see it?
