    Mere Brother Ki Dulhan rating: 7 out of 10(Divya Solgama wrote on 09 Sep 2011)

    When you read the name “Yash Raj” you know for sure that it’s a romantic film full of song, drama and stars. Initially the founder made films which were out and out romantic under his supervision. Later he started producing the film with his assistants, which was followed by his son and other creative directors. A decade back there was a time when almost all films under this banner were Musical super hits. But then some films started flopping and slowly the lucky charm started to fade out. Except for one or two biggies there was nothing much being offered by this banner. But last year with releases like Badmaash Company & Band Baaja Baraati the banner has started getting their cards right and back on track. To continue the right flow they give us another Rom-Com with a fresh pair, with good dosage of chartbuster music. So let’s find out whether the banner will strike gold this time or might be just glam sham without any content.

    “Mere Brother Ki Dulhan” is story of Kush {Imran Khan} who is assigned to search a bride for his brother Luv {Ali Zafar}. Luv is based in London and had a break up in his life, thus decides to get married and that too an arranged marriage. Kush starts searching for the suitable girl and finally meets Dimple {Katrina Kaif}. Dimple and Luv have a chat over video conference and boths family like each other, thus the marriage is fixed. But in that time Kush and Dimple become good friends and slowly starts liking each other. Before they could express their feelings for each other Luv lands in India. What happens next is what the entire film about.

    Story is simple and has been seen many times in our Hindi and Hollywood cinema. The first reference which comes in your mind is “Sorry Bhai”. But it’s the screenplay, Dialogs and the fresh looks of the lead pair which makes you entertain throughout the film. First half of the film is fast, sweet and entertaining. The feel continues ever post interval, but looses the flow in between of the second half. Thankfully it gains momentum and gets back on right track towards the climax and makes you entertained. One will love scenes like Imran interviewing the girls, Imran talks with Katrina over our culture, Katrina interviewing Ali, Imran – Katrina Scooter ride, Katrina meeting Ali {Take on Swades, followed by Sholay}, Katrina eloping with Imran, Imran – Katrina in Muslim attire, Ali confessing to Imran, followed by the climax scene between Imran, Katrina, Parishit & Kanwaljeet.

    On the flip side the over acting of Ali Zafar is highly irritating. Also the side track of Piyali slows down the flow of the film. The moment story shifts to Ali and his ex girlfriend it loses the touch and seems dragging. Camera work is good and matches with the style of Yash Raj productions. Editing is fine, some amount of work could had been done in the second half {Ali Zafars scenes}.

    Music by Sohail Sen is superb. The title track is totally entertaining with visuals from super hits Khans films. “Dhunki” is the catchiest song from the album and definitely rocks. “Choomantar” and “Ishq” are fine and enjoyable. “Madhubala” will make you dance. “Do Dhaari Talwar” is the weakest and unwanted song in the film. This song should have been edited. Rest all songs are visually great.

    Ali Zafar makes a decent debut in this Rom-Com. It’s the screenplay, Actors fresh pair and the director’s way of treating the film which works in the favor of this predictable story. We all know what is there in the film and still if you like it, then the director and the writers deserve a pat on their back. Ali should have trimmed down the romantic scenes between Ali Zafar and the debutant girl with a song. That would have definitely worked in favor of the film.

    Imran Khan is sweet and cute in this film. He manages to pull his part easily and delivers a confident performance. Katrina Kaif gets a dream role after Namaste London. Her character is full of life and rocks throughout the film. It’s nice to see that she has evolved as an actor too. She looks pretty throughout the film. Ali Zafar overacts and hams a lot. Parikshit Sahani, Kanwaljeet Singh and others give a decent support. Debutant Tara is average.

    So bol meri “Filmi Khopdi” is film mein kitna hai Dum ?

    Dum hai boss, acha khaasa entertainment hain with good music. If you like Typical Rom Coms with decent music and star power then this is your film. The film despite of having a predictable script and illogical stuffs manages to entertain with good screenplay, Music, Fresh Lead Pair,etc. And for all Katrina Kaif fans must say that “Yeh Dulhan Kaafi Entertaining Hain”.

    Ratings : 3.5/5
