Breakaway

Synopsis: A hockey enthusiast since 12 years of age, Toronto-based Rajvinder Singh, even went to the extent of trimming his hair, discarding his Pagri/turban, did not complete his education, incurred the wrath of his father, Darvesh, who wanted him to be involved in the family business as well as confirm and respect Sikh religion principles and values. Hoping to play professional hockey, Rajvinder, along with other fellow Sikh players, instead finds himself treated as the object of ridicule, referred to as a 'joker', by mainstream Caucasian players. Even his friends tease him and ask him to take up 'Guli Danda' and Kabaddi', while his father makes him work for Uncle Sammy as a truck driver. He is attracted to stunning law student Melissa Winters while her brother, Dan, offers to coach Rajvinder and his team.

The ice hockey game

between Toronto Maple Leads...

...and Detroit Red Beats has

been quite interesting so far.

Overtime has been given to them.

In this final round, both

the teams have made two goals.

What is this?

The centre of Leads

Rajveer Singh has got the puck.

And he is at the breakaway.

He has crossed the red line.

There is nobody

between him and the goalie.

Rajveer Singh

hoodwinked the goalie...

...and moved him from his position.

And goal.

What a goal!

Rajveer Singh has done a miracle.

He won the game like a dream.

The crowd is dancing

with delight on the victory.

Mother. Mother.

Take this.

Do not fear.

Rajveer.

Rajveer.

Dad.

Today...

Today, I am dead.

Dad, what are you doing here?

Working. And you?

You are sleeping.

Have you laid eggs here

that you sleep here every day?

I just took a short nap.

Son, remember.

You can get either success or rest.

If your uncle sees you sleeping,

he will fire you.

Useless fellow, all

this can be yours.

Just once show your

uncle you are capable.

I don't think I will

lose this job, dad.

Why do you feel like so?

Which idiot will do this job?

Rajveer, what do you see here?

Trucks.

Be a bit farsighted.

Yes, dad. I should

say I see my future.

Mr. Darvesh and Mr. Rajveer Singh,

please come to the office.

Come and answer your uncle.

Why do you worry so much, dad?

I can't save you every time.

Uncle Sammy is very cool.

Yes. Uncle Sammy.

You will tell him you

were sleeping in the truck.

You are ashamed. Fine?

Fine.

Uncle Sammy.

Rajveer.

Come in.

Brother, hello.

Hello.

Uncle, aunt, sorry. I...

There is good news. Reena is

getting married next month.

Sonu, herfianc, has

agreed to come to Tornado.

It's God's grace.

Congratulations.

He is a gem.

You will be pleased to meet him.

He is a talented boy.

He is an expert in stock exchange.

You are next, Rajveer.

My niece in

Jalandhar is perfect for him.

Check her out on facebook.

Stop your marriage bureau.

We will conduct

Rajveer's marriage...

...when he will do the entire shift...

...without sleeping in the truck.

Am I right?

He dreams of fair

damsels sleeping in the truck.

Once again congratulations.

Congratulations.

Thank you, brother.

Raj. Raj.

Raj, pass it.

Raj, nobody is here. Pass it.

Raj, here.

Raj, I told you to pass it here.

You gave a good pass.

You want a pass or goal?

Zero, you fool.

Raj, henceforth we will

consider you equal to two players.

There is another option.

Put your stick in

your mouth and play.

This is not possible.

Why?

His tongue is very smooth.

Smootherthan his hands.

Do pass it to us at times.

I see.

Hero.

Look. Look. Look.

Who are they?

Leave. Yourtime is up.

We still have10 minutes.

They are Hammerheads.

Hammer my foot.

They are barging in. It's our ice.

Hammer...

Watch it.

What's your problem?

I don't have any problem.

I am just waiting for you

jokers to leave the ice.

Smarty, don't lock horns.

Leave before I lock horns.

Lock horns.

Yourfather locked horns by

bringing you into this world.

So?

- Push. "Fool."

Yes. What?

Listen.

Yes.

Ensure that your player

doesn't commit a murder...

...and soil my ice.

Look, I don't want to lock horns.

I just want to score goals.

Two for Raj. And

zero forthe foreigner.

Good shot.

Come on. Lock horns.

Leave.

Stop. Leave.

Raj. Come on. It's over.

Have you gone crazy?

We have come here to

practice ice hockey...

...and not judo or karate.

Fools.

Coach.

Yes.

Shall I try?

I have good players. You

go and play with marbles.

Coach, the kid should get a chance.
