Gold, which is set between 1936 to 1948 has Olympics as its main aim. It all begins with 1936 Olympics when the team and its manager dream of singing their own National anthem instead of Long Live The King. Gold is about how a man beats his own weaknesses to realize his one and only dream. The 1936 Olympic team includes players like Samraat (played by Kunal Kapoor), Imtiaz Shah (Vineet Kumar Singh) and manager Tapan Das (Akshay Kumar), whereas the 1948 Olympics has new faces except one, Tapan. The Bengali guy, who retaliates in the correct way is better tamed and supported by his wife (Mouni Roy). He is ambitious but his only flaw is that he drinks like a fish and others know his weak nerve. He even has to resort to selling his wife’s jewellery while realizing his dream but he remains undeterred. Akshay Kumar fights a battle of forming a team which gets destroyed with partition. With many talents having settled across the border, it becomes a challenging task for Tapan to hunt new boys and that too with lesser days in hand.
