The film released on 11 February 2011.[4] The theatrical trailer of the film was premièred with Farah Khan's Tees Maar Khan on 24 December 2010.

The story revolves around Parghat Singh Kahlon alias Gattu / Kaali (Akshay Kumar), who is living the life his father Gurtej Singh Kahlon (Rishi Kapoor) chose for him. Gattu had been good at cricket and wanted to play for England though Gurtej would never let him become a member of the England team. Gurtej had threatened him earlier with suicide. His siblings hated him as he was an exemplary child in the house. He was alone without many friends until Zeeshan and his adoptive mother, Simran (Anushka Sharma) came into his life. Simran was Gattu’s childhood friend but the two had not met in years.

In the present day, Gattu gets another chance to fulfill his dream, and his siblings and Simran, convince him to give it a shot. If he gets on the team, they hope, Gurtej might be able to realize that the world isn't as racist as it used to be. As he gets on the team, they hide the fact that Gattu is on the team but Gurtej eventually finds out. Seeing his son on a team he despises gives him a heart attack and he ends up in the Emergency Room. Gattu plays cricket anyway for his siblings. He is deeply hurt to be disgraced by his father but he also loves cricket and hopes to change his father.

The people of Southall all come together and try to convince Gurtej that it is okay to be a cricket player for England. He locks himself inside the house where his wife tells him that she has never acted as a mother, only as a wife, and often forgot she was both. She turns on the T.V. wanting to see her son fulfill his dream. Gattu, who is being interviewed by Sanjay Manjrekar lies to him that his father is proud of him. Gurtej watches with her and realizes how badly he had treated his son. The family comes back into the house and Gurtej requests for one of them to drive him to the stadium. Gattu is playing poorly because he is upset that Gurtej disgraced him. Only at the last ball of the game, Gattu manages to get Andrew Symonds out for England by using the bowling style of former Indian cricketer Lala Amarnath. Gurtej apologizes to him and Gattu's siblings are now able to follow their dreams.

Patiala House met with mixed reviews. At one end of the scale, Kunal Guha of Yahoo!
