Karan Malhotra remade the iconic movie Agneepath starring Amitabh Bachchan in such a magnificent way that people just fell in love with the modern remake! So when it was announced that he would be remaking Hollywood movie Warriors as Brothers, expectations sky rocketed through the roof.
So did Karan Malhotra do justice to these expectations? Is Brothers a much better version of Warriors! Read to know!
Gary (Jackie Shroff) is released from jail after he served his sentence and Monty (Sidharth Malhotra) takes him home. On the other side Janni (Jacqueline Fernandez) and David (Akshay Kumar) are leading a life of their own, where their little daughter is suffering from kidney problem and David is going through some financial issues as well, at which point he gets to know that Mr. Bringanza has come to Indian to give Indian fighters a chance to participate in R To F competition.
Monty is the love child of Gary and one day when he brings him home, both David and Gary’s wife Maria (Shefali Shah) accepted him with open arms. But the truth got out and both Gary and Maria end up in a heated argument resulting in Gary accidentally killing her by pushing her. David leaves while Gary goes to Jail.
The love-hate relationship, the anger, the emotions and some major MMA action forms the crux of the story.
Jackie as the father has done a rather impressive job, the first half of the movie, Jackie’s expressions will not let your eyes wander off the screen. Akshay as expected was at his best in the movie. The emotions and bond he shares with his on-screen family will make you cry. Sidharth Malhotra doesn’t have as much screen space as Akshay, neither does he have much dialogues but his brooding angry young man look steals the show. Jacqueline Fernandez has a very small role in comparison to others and she does a rather decent job with her screen time.
Though the Hollywood movie Warriors had an emotional touch, Karan will make his viewers cry in this movie. If the first half had major story, second half he gives all attention to some major kick ass action scenes. Apart from overflow of emotions and a wrongly place item number of Kareena Kapoor, you can’t really pick much faults with this movie.
This movie is for both family and youth! Although the youth would enjoy it a tad bit more as Akshay and Sidharth give you one of the best Bollywood action scenes ever. Brothers makes for one great weekend watch, that you just ought to see! So don’t miss, book your tickets right away!
