Direction: ****Mere Brother Ki Dulhan
is a simple-n-sweet tale of love that's engaging and relatable. At the same time, there's an unexpected twist. At no point does the director swerve from the main plot to provide a few extra laughs or thrills. Besides, this is a script which gives both actor and actress to emote. Director Ali Abbas Zafar, ensures that a simple story is narrated with simplicity and unfussiness.
The film is a roller coaster ride. Director Ali Abbas has completely managed to convince the audiences with this unusual concept. MBKD which has been shot in Agra and Delhi is an amazing film which will relate to the Indian audience.
Katrina Kaif as Dimple who dons a bindass attitude and sheer madness will indeed strike a chord. Katrina is a revelation. In fact, the actress continues to surprise you with her performances in film after film. Besides making an impact as a glamour girl, she's all out to prove her mettle as an actress of substance with MBKD.
Imran has taken a step forward as an actor. Imran has come a long way in his fifth outing and you can see a marked difference in his performance. He is spontaneity and that brings energy to the character.
Ali Zafar is one of the most talented actors. Though he didn’t have to prove himself as an actor considering his talent but he hardly had anything to do in this film.
A grungy guitar riff ushers in Dhunki, a jewel of a track that Neha Bhasin absolutely owns. Her voice
is breathtaking – fierce and confident and soaring. The track is an intoxicating mixture of rock with a rustic edge – all grungy electric guitars and pounding drums, but Neha Bhasin’s delivery of the vocals really lifts this track out of the stratosphere. All the songs in the film are earth shattering.
"Mere Brother Ki Dulhan" is a quirky romantic comedy set in the world of the upper middle class in Northern India. Kush Agnihotri (Imran Khan) is looking for the ideal Indian bride for his Brother Luv Agnihotri (Ali Zafar) who stays in London.
In his quest, Kush goes through an array of wacky encounters with several families until he finally finds that perfect girl in Dimple Dixit (Katrina Kaif), the craziest / wackiest girl he has ever known. Both the families meet. Formalities completed. Preparations proceed in full swing. And just then, our hero Kush falls in love with Dimple... his brother's dulhan. What follows is a comical and unpredictable series of events in this unusual topsy-turvy tale of love.
On the whole, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan for varied reasons -- it has a simple, but captivating story with a dramatic twist in the tale, the chemistry between the lead actors is perfect and the music is well juxtaposed in the narrative. It's definitely not for ardent fans of kitsch or those with an appetite for typical masala entertainers.
Though the concept has been tried and tested in Sorry Bhai but MBKD takes the concept to a next level. A must watch for the weekend.
