The movie is about Gattu (Akshay Kumar) who is living the life his father chose for him. When Gattu was young, racism was a big issue. On his birthday, the Whites broke his home window and yelled "We don't want you in our country." At this point, his father, Gurtej Singh Kahlon (Rishi Kapoor)had become fed up with the Whites, and grabbed a pot and almost hit one of the Whites with it. He was arrested soon after, but then released. A few weeks later, Gattu's uncle was killed in a racial attack. This changed Gattu's father, and made him a kind of leader in the predominately indian area of Southall in West London. He made a lot of changes that stopped racism where he lived. Gattu had always listened to his father, which made his siblings resent him.They were not allowed to do what they wanted, and had to be very traditional Sikhs. Gattu had always been good at cricket and wanted to play for England, though his dad would never let him become a member of the British team. When tryouts come out, Gattu's siblings convinced him to tryout. If he gets on the team, their father might be able to realize that the world isn't as racist anymore as it used to be. They are able to hide the fact the Gattu is on the team, but their father eventually finds out. Seeing his son on a team he despises gave Gurtej heart failure, and he ends up in the E.R. He disgraces Gattu, but Gattu still plays cricket anyway. He is deeply hurt to be disgraced by his father, but he also loves cricket, and hopes to change his father. The people of Southall all come together, and try to convince Gurtej that it is okay to be a cricket player for England. He locks himself inside the house, but his wife is still with him. She tells him that she has never acted as a mother, only a wife, and she often forgot she was both. She turned on the T.V., wanting to see her son fulfill his dream. Gurtej watches with her, and realizes how badly he has treated his son. The family comes back in the house, and Gurtej requests for one of them to drive him to the stadium. Gattu is playing poorly, because he is so upset that his father disgraced him. Only at the last ball of the game, Gattu manages to win the championship for England. His father compares his bowling to Late Lala Amar Nath. His father apologizes to him, and all Gattu's siblings are now able to pursue their dreams.
