Breakaway... Culture...Sport & Music!!

The Indo-Canadian culture is existing in Canada for over 100 years. The major inhibitants are Sikhs from Punjab. The Sikh immigrants have faced wide spread identity issues. They even face issues of the locals fearing them to empower more jobs than them which would in return threaten their jobs. There are Indians from all the parts of the world residing in Canada, like Indians from US, Caribbean, Uk, Africa,Middle East, Oceania, etc.

Breakaway is a movie made on similar grounds, which portrays the life of a Sikh family with traditional values and wanting their children to propagate the same culture. It will give you the essence of two extremely distinct cultures with great drama and character quotient. It has a never tried before, Ice Hockey theme with great music composed by Sandeep Chowta and songs by Ludacris & Drake. Akshay Kumar is doing a cameo in the film, as this movie being produced under his production house, Hari Om Productions.

Breakaway to follow your Dreams…

We all have a dream and a passion that grows in us since childhood. Some get to follow their dreams and some dreams are held back due to some external forces. Breakaway is a film which goes around a boy (Rajveer) who too has a dream which transforms into his ultimate passion.  It is shot in the suburbs of Toronto, Canada, portraying the Indo-Canadian culture of a Sikh family.  Rajveer wants to pursue playing as a professional Ice Hockey player and on the other hand, his father wants him to devote his life for the family business.

Unable to get a strong hold on the game, Rajveer decides to form an all Indian hockey team to win the main Championship game. Considering this plan, he needed to have a sponsor and a coach. With his charm and convincing abilities he gets all of his plans on track. In this whole story he meets this pretty girl, who apparently is the coach’s sister and the movie gets the essence of romance.  It is a movie with drama, romance, laughter, color and obviously the cross culture flavor of India and Canada. It’s all about Team Sport… ;)
