Kapoor and sons (Since 1921):The film is a family comedy drama. This film was popular amongst public due to the multiple star cast. Did the film match up to its expectations? Did the Kapoor family give us a good time?
The story is about a family in which each of them have their own problems but still try to put a smile on their faces.
The movie starts with Dadu(Rishi Kapoor) suffering from a heart attack. Hearing this Rahul(Fawad Khan) and Arjun(Sidarth Malhotra ) fly back to Connor to visit their Dadu. This is when the Kapoor family reunites but also realise the number of individual problems they have! Rahul is portrayed as the perfect child in the family as he has a control over his life on the other hand Arjun feels insecure about himself as his life still has no direction, this brings out a bad equation between these two. Adding to this Rahul and Arjun’s Mom Sunita(Ratna Patak) and Dad Harsh(Rajat Kapoor) fight frequently to save their marriage strings. Later we learn that Harsh is going through a financial crisis also.
As we come to know the various problems of each member of the Kapoor family, a new character called Tia(Alia Bhatt) is introduced. She first meets Rahul and then Arjun. She is easygoing in nature and whose romantic inclinations might further widen the rift between the brothers. Do all the problems get solved or are there some sacrifices made? Watch the movie to know!
Speaking of performances:
Rishi Kapoor has made us love his character. He has done a great job he is the kind of Dadu any grand kids would want, there are so many scenes were he makes us laugh and feel cool about him. Another show stealer was Fawad Khan his role of Rahul was played with perfection,and made us easily connect with the difficulties faced by his character. Ratna Patak had done a great job of playing the loving and caring mother. Siddarth Malhotra had done a neat job of his character he did justice to his role. Alia Bhat played the role of Tina with ease, even though she didn’t have many scenes her presence was felt.
Each character in the movie was given proper detail which made the movie have a strong base. Director Shakun Batra has done a good job of keeping the movie intact with the story and not building upon excess drama.
