Description: At Patiala House lives the Kahlon family ruled by Bauji. They follow his diktats as he tries to hold onto his 'Indian values' in the land of the 'goras'. The younger generation at the Patiala House wants to assert themselves and follow their dreams but are held back by their respect and love for Bauji and the shining example of Bauji's eldest son, Parghat Singh Kahlon aka Gattu. Gattu gave up his dream at the altar of Bauji's biases. His reward: For the last 17 years he has opened the corner store across the tube station. He will tend to his customers, hear the neighbourhood boys playing cricket in the back alley. He will remember a dream that could have become a reality and watch his father rule a house, a family, a community like he has for the last 25 years. He will silently tolerate the snide remarks and insults passed by a younger generation. He will understand the bitterness of his siblings and identify with their shattered dreams. Then he will participate to bring forth a change. He will finally summon the courage to challenge his father and start a movement that will shake the very foundations of Patiala House. Will Bauji loosen his hold and let the youngsters find their own dreams instead of following his? Will Gattu get a second chance to live his life? What's more important: family or dreams? And why must we choose one over the other.'Patiala House' has been inspired by England cricket team's Sikh member Monty Singh Panesar. Panesar is the first Sikh to join England cricket team and the spinner is a crowd favourite.
