{mosimage}Well... another visit to Satyam for a Hindi movie within 5 days of previous visit happened thanks to my cousin who wanted to see 'GOAL'. Set in urban locale of London, this sports movie derives inspiration and similarities from Lagaan, Chak De India which also fall on the same genre. I would say that this is the John Abraham's best performance till date. His body language was very apt for a professional football player whereas Arshad Warsi completes the near perfect casting. Bipasha's role itself is a misfit then where does the question of her performance arise? Infact film would have been better without her. The last 30 minutes were fantastic and I enjoyed the football game on screen. Vivek Agnihotri must be applauded for keeping the masala to minimum & being loyal to the script, whereas the camera work, football choreography as well as background score are mindblowing. The movie manages to keep you glued to the seat despite you draw parallels to Lagaan, Chak De India in some scenes. A watchable attempt on screen, courtesy Bollywood.
