Mere Brother Ki Dulhan: Movie Review

Times Of India Movie Review
Movie Rating - ***
Movie Review - When Imran Khan does a takeoff on the three ruling Khans of Bollywood in the opening credits, you somehow sense that the film has defined its domain. And it isn't long before you realize that the narrative is taking the route of Shah Rukh Khan's Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge . By the time the boy comprehends his love for the girl, she is already engaged to someone else. Only this time it's the boy's brother - so it's more of an inhouse affair!
The only advancement that the film shows in its storytelling is that Katrina Kaif, who holds the record of playing a Bollywood bride who runs away on her wedding day from one hero to another in the climax ( Humko Deewana Kar Gaye, Namastey London, Singh is Kinng, Ajab Prem Ki Ghajab Kahani ), for a change, makes the shift on her engagement day itself by interval point.

Movie Review - Mere Brother Ki Dulhan tries hard to do a Hrishikesh Mukherjee in a Yash Raj set up but is held back by a middling script that banks excessively on charisma, camaraderie and a common malady among present-day aspiring filmmakers -- fanboyism. And while the references from RD's retro chartbusters to Dabangg's clout are all very nice, it's not novel any more.
But, here, since Imran Khan's character, Kush, is an assistant director in Bollywood films, Zafar has a convenient excuse to insert some gags and gimmicks that hat tip to Sholay, Mughal-E-Azam, Dil Se and, sure enough, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge.Site Visit

Movie Review- Mere Brother Ki Dulhan's dimple must have sounded like a terrific story. a 27-year-old who has lived life as a wild child, growing up in London to a diplomat father, decides to settle down to an arranged marriage. But Katrina Kaif plays her as a curiously blank piece of paper. It's difficult to imagine her as ever having been to a college (let alone a college called lady shri rao--yes, we know it's a joke). It's as difficult to imagine her as a rocker chick who carries beer in her thaila and smokes a bidi. And as one who thinks nothing of swilling bhang in the middle of a highway dhaba. She tries hard, but if the movie stays even marginally afloat it is because of Imran Khan. He's boyish, charming as the sensible younger brother of the very self aware and very filmi Ali Zafar who plays the well heeled brother working and living in England, and has an extremely expressive set of eyebrows. The hapless expression should now be patented and is appealing to all slacker boys. It works very well, especially with declarations of "I love you" accompanied by the electric garland around his neck short circuiting. He's perfected his formula--he's a lover, with the soul of a comedian. Think Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na meets Delhi Belly. Site Visit
