Movie Review: Mere Brother Ki Dulhan (Hindi) 138

When the title of this movie is so obvious, there can?t be much of suspense on what to expect from the movie. All that it has to be about is a groom?s brother falling for his brother?s fiancée. Bollywood had flirted with this theme earlier; with the Sharman Joshi, Chitrangada Singh Starrer ?Sorry Bhai?, which fell flat at the Box office.

So, what is new here? The starts are bigger and there?s a huge production house behind it. Adding spice to it are its songs and some comic moments.

Luv (Ali Zafar) has yet again had a break up and now wants to marry and settle down. He entrusts his brother Kush (Imran Khan) with the responsibility of finding him a bride which he does: an eccentric and wild Dimple (Katrina Kaif). While the run up to the wedding are on, Kush and Dimple discover that they?ve fallen for each other.

To make up for the predictable plot, the writers weave in a few attempted spoofs and references to other bollywood hits including Dabbang, Jodhaa Akbar, Padosan, etc. Despite it all, you know how it is supposed to end and since most situations are contrived or something you?ve seen in other movies, there are no surprises there.

Although Katrina isn?t much of an ?actor?, she has bettered herself this time around. If this move becomes any worthwhile, it is only because of her. You do see shades of Kareena?s ?Jab We Met?. Imran seems to back into familiar territory which is youthful romances. Ali Zafar who impressed audiences in last year?s film ?Tere Bin Laden? had to settle down in a supporting role while Imran and Katrina steal the limelight.

?Mere Brother Ke Dulhan? is not to be seen with high expectations. If you are in a mood for a quality movie, surely this is not the one for you. On the other hand, it?s neither a crass entertainer nor priyadrashan-style dumb slapstick. It?s slick and urban. And it doesn?t fall into the emotional-drama trap that most romances end up doing.

Although flawed, here?s why you can still watch it: It doesn?t have too many irritating characters; it is not excessively lengthy and doesn?t delve into sub-plots. The funny moments are evenly spread out and there are no sob-stories that can give you a headache. In all, it is packaged as a feel-good flick and when coupled with songs and laughs, it?s totally designed to keep the cash registers ringing.

Rating 6/10: A comedy that doesn?t hurt to watch
