This one is definitely for the Singhs and sport-movie buffs. Shot entirely in Canada, the central theme is Ice Hockey, Canada's favourite sport, and the penchant for the game of our Singh community settled. Headed by one Rajveer Singh (Vinay Virmani), who is a die-hard fan of the game, they move on from rookies to champs. And this transition comes about with dollops of hilarious situations thrown in for good measure.

Rajveer is not your regular Sikh boy. He is in the bad books of his dad, played by Anupam Kher, because he has gotten rid of his turban and also cut his hair short. To top it, he is pursuing a sport which the father has no interest in. All he wants for his boy is that he takes over his (father's) brother's business. But Rajveer is supported by his uncle, who also sponsors the team into the championship.

But all is not well. As Speedy Singhs progress into the tournament, they are thrown the rule book in the face - in the final they are asked to wear a helmet! And not a single player is in a mood to let go of his turban. The cause seems lost, until Rajveer with the help of the coach's sister, who plays his love interest, comes up with a novel idea to keep his team in the tournament.

It's a light entertainer with producer Akshay Kumar making a special appearance. This one, I guess, is to promote tourism in Canada with Akshay already having taken on the role of a Brand Ambassador.

There are moments that leave you in splits. Like the one when Anupam Kher decides to stay at the Gurdwara and pray instead of being at the final. When he moves to the back room of the Gurudwara, he sees the elders huddled around a transistor, catching the action 'live'.

Made specifically for the cross-over audience, the film tries to be honest to the theme. And this is where it scores its brownie points.
