Wedding looks like the ultimate occasion for the movie makers to spin their stories around which is why there are many movies coming up that have wedding-based theme and songs. Just a few months ago, Tanu Weds Manu hit the screens that had a wedding theme and now latest on the block is Mere Brother Ki Dulhan that also revolves around the wedding theme. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and produced by Aditya Chopra, the movie stars Katrina Kaif, Imran Khan and Pakistani singer-actor Ali Zafar.
The plot revolves around the three central characters. Kush (Imran) is on the quest to look for a nice Indian bride for his brother Luv (Ali) who stays in London. While on his search for a perfect girl for his brother he goes through a lot of pain and idiotic encounters which symbolizes that he is desperate to find one bride for his brother no matter what. He finally finds Dimple (Katrina) and selects her for his brother. Both the families decide to meet and things are going as smooth as possible, but to make things worse Kush falls in love with the whacky and charming nature of Dimple. This is where the plot takes a complete twist and audience need to look out for more surprises.
On performance level, all the three central characters have done a fab job in the movie and therefore it will appeal to all audiences. Imran is really good at his comic timing and his witty facial expressions and it looks like that the role of Kush was specially designed for him. He fits well into the character throughout the movie and keeps you entertained. Katrina is in the rockstar image and she delivers better this time. She makes herself look really comic and at times she can handle serious scenes as well. Ali Zafar has already shown his talent in Tere Bin Laden and this time he has confirmed it that he is here to stay. Apart from these Parikshit Sahni and Kanwaljeet Singh do a fine job to hold the movie together. Technically, the movie is very fresh and vibrant and there are lot of colors used throughout to make it look like a wedding based movie. The cinematography by Sudeep Chatterjee is really good and captures all the possible angles that can make this movie look better. The music of the movie is another highlight and Sohail Sen has done a good job with the music. The songs are melodious, urban and very next generation. Songs like Choomantar, Dhunki and Madhubala are really good to see and listen to. The choreography by Bosco-Caesar looks refreshing as well.
To conclude, Yash Raj Films has once again tried their best to keep the audiences entertained with their wedding based movie. They have already done it in the past with Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai and Band Baajaa Baarat and they done it this time again by using conventional story in unusual way. The movie does look like inspired from Dan in Real Life and Sorry Bhai but it is certainly not on those lines. Mere Brother Ki Dulhan is certain impressive family entertainer you should watch this weekend.
