Breakaway Reviews:

This is a nice tiny movie. Simple and fun to watch. It is cliché and predictable at times, especially towards the end but that does not take away from the heart warming storyline that is at the core of this movie. The melody is nice and the several Bollywood kind scenes add to the fun and festivity of the movie. Vinay Virmani gives a nice performance as does Camilla Belle and Rob Lowe. The greatest performance of the present however is "the dad" Anupam Kher. His stern yet tender performance is believable from the very begin of the movie. Russell Peters seemed a bit stiff and not nearly as funny as his stand up but that does not slow down this movie. A nice popcorn movie.


There are some true cruel reviews of this movie, interestingly many coming from the ethnic audience that it's supposed to have in its pocket. I don't think this film deserves such harsh criticism. It's now a very sweet film with likable characters, including Russell Peters in a nice helping role. We receive to play a bit of the hockey thrill and watch the pretty Camilla Belle. This film was never supposed to be an Oscar contender. Even though you know how the storyline will end in the first couple of mins into the movie, the uniquely Canadian atmosphere and the several side stories that help the plot create your time worth watching it.


We liked Breakaway - sure it's cute much lightweight sports comedy but its heart is the right zone and it was fun.I guarantee this film will be create it big, even if it's being treated with some disdain in Canada.Here's why:1. There's a reason why Russell Peters is currently the number one selling comedian in the world. The global diaspora of Indian populations in the UK, the US, South Africa, Dubai, not to mention India itself will purchase this. 2. No another country on world has as many cinemas and cinema goers (and not downloaders, but true paying cinemas with seats and people) as India and they love films that celebrate their culture abroad. 3. The UK has a large following for Peters and this: Peters sold out Wembley Stadium for three nights twice, and Indian TV is large this is going to run and run on subscription TV channels forever. 4. It's a fun, innocent, sport film - and folks like that worldwide...... I accept it may not be Canada's number one movie, but I think this is marketing savvy and I bet you the receipts when added up in twelve months time create it the number one earner globally of any Canadian film of the year.......All in all if you like sports comedies like Boys with Brooms and / or what an insight into Sikh culture in Toronto, while enjoying a competent sports film you should do much worse (now you can vote me down).....
