Fawad Khan’s Kapoor and Sons is in cinemas today! Starring Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra, the movie is called ‘an emotional family drama’. Kapoor and Sons is a romantic comedy flick by Karan Johar with a relatively younger leading cast and picturesque locations sprinkled with easy listening music has earned his production positive acclaim.
The laudable directorial skills of Shakun Bhatra and very believable acting skills of the cast put together make this movie a must watch!
The story depicts the story of the Kapoor family where the focus falls on the two Kapoor brothers who reunite at their family home at the hill station at Conoor, amidst personal differences.
Rahul Kapoor, played by Fawad Khan, is the older of the two and a source of pride for the family whereas Siddarth Malhotra portrays Arjun Kapoor, the younger brother and the deviant in the family.
The movie brilliantly highlights the love-hate sibling relationship between Khan and Malhotra, who as fate would have it fall for the same woman, further entangling their already strained relationship, thanks to great direction by Batra.
Two noteworthy things are the decent performances overall by the entire cast and the subtle handling of atypical personal choices.
The fans loved the relatable story spun beautifully depicting the true imperfect nature of familial relations and the emotions, egos and fights that at the end straighten everything out for the better.
Watch the trailer below:
Alia Bhatt also manages to shine in a very quintessential girl next door role of uncomplicated Tia. The music is fun and catchy with the song Let’s Nacho being the most memorable of them all.
Listen to Let’s Nacho below:
The perfectly showcased discord in relationship shared by the two handsome brothers, yet starkly different in natures and social acceptability, with the flames further fanned by them being in love with the same unaware equally likeable Tia.
Shakun Batra successfully amazes as a director by unfailingly capturing the viewers’ attention and incorporates a decent amount of twists in the story. All in all, a better movie than most we’ve seen in the recent years.
