Mere Brother Ki Dulhan Movie Review – Watch it for Katrina Kaif!

Mere Brother Ki Dulhan has Bollywood written all over it, with lots of color, music, dance, comedy and drama. Though the subject may be trite, the treatment of the film is commendable. One feels that if the script was better, it would have definitely been an entertaining watch.

 

Story of Mere Brother Ki Dulhan:

The story is about one Khush Agnihotri (Imran Khan) who is looking for a bride for his brother Luv Agnihotria (Ali Zafar) who is based in London. He finds an ideal find in Dimple Dixit (Katrina Kaif) a girl who is a perfect foil of Indian sensibilities and English charm, just what his brother needs. But during the course of the wedding preparations, Khush and Dimple fall in love with each other, and then we have the same old love triangle coming up with the main lead winning the girl.

 

What works in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan:

The script laced with humor is the forte of the film. The first part of the film is well edited and has a lot of interesting sequences in the first part. The performances in the film, with a surprising spirited performance from Katrina Kaif raise the bar of the film. The direction by Ali Abbas Zafar is also quite interesting, there is never a dull moment specially in the first half. There are no over-the-top scenes and even the love triangle scenes are directed in a smart manner. There are no tragic or sad scenes; it is a fun-fare all the way with the right balance of emotions. The comical timing of Ali Zafar and Katrina Kaif can keep you in splits.

 

What does not work in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan:

The clichéd theme of the film is a big let-down. The proceedings become quite predictable in the second half, so much that people can guess what a character would say even before he or she starts to say something. There is no real struggle in the film. In the earlier days, we had such tough characters like Amrish Puri’s in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, who seemed like such a hard nut to crack, but in today’s films; you hardly see any challenge. Problems are solved in such a jiffy in movies like Mere Brother Ki Dulhan that the audience does not get to feel the character’s emotions, they have to just watch the movie for the sake of watching.

The length of MBKD is dismally long, it would not be wrong to say that the Yash Raj Films may just snip a couple of songs in future to restrict the length. Finally, Imran Khan is back to his boring roles again. One thing is to be borne in mind; when he says that it is indeed a different role, we may have to take his statement with a pinch of salt. He is doing the same thing that he did it I Hate Luv Storys, even his profile of an assistant direction in that film is here. If he takes on such mundane roles, one may not be really charged up about seeing his films

 

Performances in the film:

Imran Khan, being in comfort zone, plays his character to the hilt, and sleepwalks through the role. Ali Zafar displays amazing comic timing. The film really belongs to Katrina Kaif, this is her best performance. The girl impresses with her superb comic timing and looks a million bucks as well. If you are a Katrina Kaif fan, you cannot dare miss this. Even if you are not someone who does not like Katrina’s performances, you can just end up drooling over her gorgeous looks.

 

Conclusion:

Mere Brother Ki Dulhan is tailor-made for the Katrina Kaif lover in you. Do not go expecting a mind-blowing script; you may well be satisfied the song and dance fiesta, and some funny lines in the first half.
