    Not bad for a regular hindi masala . But looks lame due to the obvious comparison with Warrior .

    • FS 9 years ago

      Yes thats what i meant and they should treat it as masala entertainer or they’l fail miserably at box office. Warrior also didn’t make much on boxoffice and these movies kinda turn up home videos having cult followers.

      I like the way Piku or TWMR have done at the boxoffice since they targeted larger audience than the nice audience. look at DBB, it is such a cinematic experience to witness in bollywood still it could have been little more entertaining than it is targeting larger audience.

      Watched it with audio and did not like it. Disappointed with the trailer as was expecting better from Karan Malhotra. . Looks OTT and the dialogues sound bad. Sidharth Malhotra seems totally miscast in the role that Tom Hardy excelled in.

    Jackie Shroff, here in a getup totally different than the one in HNY, seems once again comfortable in his shoes. Once a star, always a star, he shines in all situations.

    Akshay is surely and steadily making up for all the mindless comedies that he has dished out. His career is a mirror image of Bachchan’s. Bulk of Akshay’s career, majority of his success, like Bachchan’s success, has been via extreme mindless comedies, which you can only watch by tuning off your brains. But. Akshay in his second innings now is doing the Salim-Javed like substantial movies that Bachchan did in his second innings. Bachchan did this early on, whereas Akshay is doing content later in his career. This is pretty smart because after getting amazing success, Akshay will some day step away with his integrity intact. A best of both the worlds situation.

    SM, at least in the tailor looks like out to destroy the movie.

        Do you believe in free speech or censorship ?

        Do you believe in making a case or just making personal attacks against fellow members ?

        I know you just one question, but I figured why not ask two

    Its a surprise to see BollywoodHungama not giving a 4 star review to Brothers. They are suggesting it won’t work from Monday.

    Brothers Review by By Bollywood Hungama News Network
    Rating: 3/5

    Bollywood has seen many films based on the theme of brothers. Be it the love between the brothers or hatred, Bollywood has done it all. This week’s release is BROTHERS, a story about two warring brothers. Will this brotherhood hit gold at the box-office or will the war of the brothers spell doom… let’s analyze.

    BROTHERS starts off with the release of Gary (Jackie Shroff) from a jail after having served imprisonment for (accidentally) killing his wife Maria (Shefali Shah). Upon his release from the jail, he is received by his son Monty (Sidharth Malhotra). When Gary asks Monty about his elder son David (Akshay Kumar), the story goes into a flashback mode which reflects the past life of Gary and all the reasons and incident that led him to be jailed. Realizing his mistake, when Gary goes to David to ask for forgiveness for all his misdoings, David refuses to forgive him. David’s life now only revolves around his rock-solid wife Jenny (Jacqueline Fernandez) and his 6 year old daughter Maria, who is suffering from a serious kidney ailment. It is for the treatment of Maria that David doubles up as a Physics professor as well as a street fighter (read ‘underground fighter’). However, fearing the impression that he will leave on his students, the school authorities debar him from his job. This makes David furthermore helpless and street fighting becomes his only hope of survival. Around the same time, enters Peter Breganza (Kiran Kumar) who is all set to give the street fighting a much needed facelift in the form of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) by organizing the world renowned ‘R2F’ tournament (Right To Fight) in India, which boasts of a prize money that amounts to a whopping Rs. 9 crores to the ultimate winner. Monty, who is already a street fighter, gets attracted to this contest while Paasha (Ashutosh Rana) signs up David as his fighter for the tournament. Monty receives all the possible (rigorous) training under his ex-fighter father Gary, on the other hand, knowing this is a lifetime opportunity David grabs it with both the hands. With no trainer guiding him, David starts his set of hardcore training for the deadly combat. The tournament begins and David and Monty beat their powerful opponents one after the other. After having defeated all the opponents, there comes a time when the final battle is between David and Monty and the one who ‘cripples’ the other will become the ultimate winner. Do David and Monty forgo their brotherhood on the battle field for the sake of money, what is the real reason for David to hate Monty so much and does David become successful in collecting enough money for his daughter’s treatment is what forms the rest of the film.

    The film’s director Karan Malhotra, who had earlier made AGNEEPATH (starring Hrithik Roshan), has tried only too hard to live upto everyone’s expectations, which is something that shows in the film. In an attempt to do so, even though he captures the emotions strongly, he starts struggling with the pace in the first half of the film, which is dedicated in establishing the film’s set up and the emotional drama. The sad part here is that, the drama in the first half fails to stir the emotions of the audience. The extremely slow and snail-paced first half makes you impatient considering that you are in the theatre to watch a hardcore action film. The lengthy first half comes across as a big hindrance. Karan Malhotra could have trimmed the first half by a good 15 minutes to make it look and feel crisper. The film, by all means, picks up in the second half. Despite this pick up, Karan’s story-telling seems to be losing grip in the second half as all the focus is totally on the film’s action sequences. Even though the film is an ‘official remake’ of the Hollywood film WARRIOR (which had Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton), it is really sad to see that BROTHERS is nowhere even near to the original film. Karan Malhotra seems to have lost his way in adaptation of the film’s screenplay. Having said that, Karan Malhotra needs to be given the brownie points for ‘treating’ the viewers with MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) and also in successfully portraying the struggles of a middle class Indian family. The last fifteen minutes of the film are a must watch. Karan Malhotra has managed to capture the action scenes really well and is probably the first for a Bollywood film.

    Amongst the actors, Jackie Shroff gets the crown for his brilliant performance of a helpless father who has unintentionally destroyed his happy family. The guilt that he expresses throughout the film cannot be expressed in words. This is one of Jackie’s best performances till date. Akshay Kumar, on the other hand, does full justice to his role of a Physics teacher who is forced to take up street fighting to support his family financially. While he excels in the fight sequences (do not miss his training sessions), he also finely balances his role by exhibiting his emotional side with equal conviction. Sharing screen space with experienced actors like Jackie Shroff and Akshay Kumar is not an easy task, yet Sidharth Malhotra manages to hold on strong. He not only walks (and also fights) shoulder to shoulder with Akshay Kumar in the film; he also excels in the emotional scenes. One however feels that his character should have been given more meat. Having said that, Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra definitely deserve a pat on their back for developing the convincing physiques for their roles and also for taking the art of fighting onto a different level altogether in the film. Jacqueline Fernandez, who plays a mother for the first time in her career, does a decent job, despite hers being a non-glam role. Shefali Shah in her small role is sheer brilliance. Ashutosh Rana and Kiran Kumar are decent. Even though Kareena Kapoor is in her usual element in the item song ‘Mera Naam Mary’, one does feel that the song is forced into the film, something that could have been easily avoided. Even the commentary during the fights seems way too quirky.

    The film’s background score is average and the film’s music (Ajay-Atul) is decent. The film scores heavily in the cinematography department (Hemant Chaturvedi) and the action department. As mentioned before, the film’s editing (Akiv Ali) seems to be a bit of letdown as it could have been a bit crisper. The film’s lead actors mainly speak the language of punches and blows, however the film’s dialogues (Mandira Shukla) lack the ‘punches’ to impress the masses.

    On the whole, BROTHERS is a huge letdown on the account of its slow pace and lack of emotional connect. At the box office, the movie will enjoy huge footfalls over the weekend due to Independence Day Holiday and lack of credible opposition at the cinema halls. The real struggle for the film however will start from Monday onwards, which would turn out to be the deciding factor of the fate of the film.

    Movie Review by Reja Sen

    Brothers is so bad it should be disqualified

    Brothers is loud, over-the-top and an exhausting watch, says Raja Sen.

    If the number of crucifixes in a film signify how pious it is, Brothers must have been shot in the Vatican.

    The characters — a Fernandes family from Mumbai — are Catholics, it is established early on, but director Karan Malhotra keeps labouring the point home — all the characters wear crucifixes around their necks, walk out of churches in slow-motion, have Jesus tattooed on their biceps, do a Hail Mary before getting their fingers bloody, and so forth.

    One man is even named Cross. Talk about using the lord’s logo in vain.

    The entire film sees more dangling-cross action than George Michael’s earlobe from back in the day.

    If the number of crucifixes in a film signify how pious it is, Brothers must have been shot in the Vatican.

    The characters — a Fernandes family from Mumbai — are Catholics, it is established early on, but director Karan Malhotra keeps labouring the point home — all the characters wear crucifixes around their necks, walk out of churches in slow-motion, have Jesus tattooed on their biceps, do a Hail Mary before getting their fingers bloody, and so forth.

    One man is even named Cross. Talk about using the lord’s logo in vain.

    The entire film sees more dangling-cross action than George Michael’s earlobe from back in the day.

    As we know from tic-tac-toe, where there are crosses there must be zeroes.

    True to symmetry, Malhotra gives us many a moment of absolute worthlessness.

    The entire first half, in fact, is unwatchable.

    Right upto the point of intermission, relentless melodrama is thrust our way with operatic zeal, complete with an excruciating, crescendo-driven background score and characters trying to out-wail it. It’s all tears and flashbacks and, funnily enough, it’s entirely unnecessary.

    The quickest fix for this truly bad film? Watch only the second half.

    Actually, I must here apologise.

    I may here have implied that the post-intermission portion is any good. It isn’t, though the good news is that after such a horrendous first-half, it does at least feature some spiffy camerawork and well-choreographed action sequences.

    The bad news is that this is all the second half has, as we go through MMA fight scene after MMA fight scene till we get to the MMA fight scene we knew was coming all along: one where two brothers glare and fight and cry ad nauseam.

    This is an official remake of Warrior, a Hollywood drama from 2011 featuring a bunch of great actors jumping on the Mixed Martial Arts bandwagon and ending up with a film that is, I’m told, a solid action drama.

    Malhotra, a young man who made the too-loud new Agneepath, is a perplexingly old-school director who seems committed to making movies that look like they were assembled from Prakash Mehra outtakes and plot-points too silly for Mukul Anand to use.

    Warrior may have been melodramatic to begin with, but Malhotra amps up each possible moment, laying it on impossibly thick and spelling every little gesture out for the audience. So a flashback of the mother reading is not just simple and sunny, but features a wannabe-Morricone background score while she reads books on true love by Brian Weiss.

    And that’s the subtle bit, for this is a movie when characters see large cuts on other character’s cheeks and say things like “ooh, itna bada


    Jackie Shroff, grey and grizzled and looking like an underfed and grumpy Santa Claus, plays a father who used to be a street fighter.

    His sons — Akshay Kumar, a physics teacher, and Sidharth Malhotra, a surly guy who shakes his leg a lot — hate each other and aren’t particularly nice to him.

    Still, the old fool keeps wishing they’ll all make up.

    It’s all rather like Rakhee in Karan Arjun going on about her sons prodigally returning. Except Shroff frequently hallucinates about coffins. (With giant crosses on them, of course.)

    There is much randomness.

    Jacqueline Fernandes plays Kumar’s long-sobbing wife who gets so deliriously happy on seeing a text message that it may well have contained news about a Kick sequel.

    Kiran Kumar plays an evil MMA promoter who smokes so many cheroots his name could have been Disclaimer Braganza — obviously he’s Catholic too. (Also, he builds up hype for months and months only to end up with a two-night tournament. Tsk. Whatever would N Srinivasan say?)

    Ashutosh Rana, who doesn’t seem to have aged at all in the last two decades, plays a sometimes slimy, sometimes loyal manager.

    hefali Shah shows up and makes sure her nostrils flare up more than Kumar’s thigh muscles. And, in a vulgar and ill-choreographed song sequence, an A-lister shakes her caboose so desperately it feels like she wants to be renamed Kareena Kapoor Kardashian Khan.

    Akshay Kumar looks believably fit, both during his training montage and his fights — the first of which he wins with a brutal finisher that led my friend to exclaim that Kumar “broke his arm with his balls,” which is symbolism at its most testicular. Bravo.

    But that’s all this film has, a ball-busting Kumar and one particular fight that ends with delightful abruptness. Everything else is exhausting.

    Most of us in India first heard of MMA in the 1990s when Monica from Friends was dating a billionaire who wanted to be a UFC champion. Now, all I’ve seen of the octagonal fighting championships is the superheroic Ronda Rousey, an undefeated megastar who finishes off opponents in something like 16 seconds.

    Weighing 158 unbearable minutes, Brothers is nearly 600-times as long as the Rousey win — and not one-millionth as thrilling.

    Rating: 1.5/5
