Last time, you saw Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt in their debut film Student of the Year (2012) directed by Karan Johar. Four years is a long period of time and in between, these two young actors have become established and matured actors and had some quality films. Now again Karan Johar has brought back this popular pair again in romantic-drama Kapoor and Sons written and directed by Shakun Batra. Pakistani actor Fawad Khan is also on board and joined this family drama. Let’s have a look weather it is worth to watch or not.
Kapoor and Sons is all about an eighty year old man Amarjeet Singh ( Rishi Kapoor) and his two grandsons Rahul (Fawad) and Arjun (Sidharth) Kapoor. Rahul and Arjun live separately in London and New Jersey. While their family including Dadu and their parents Harsh (Rajat Kapoor) and Sunita (Ratna Pathak Shah) lives in Coonoor. One given day when Amarjeet Singh got heart attack, he wants every family member by his side before his death. So, Arjun and Rahul rushed back to home. Their parents are also struggling with their marriage related issues and entire family is together faced lots of misunderstanding and mess out.
In between all this messed, Rahul and Arjun fall in love with the same girl Tia Singh (Alia) which results in problems in the relationships. What next? Will they again unite together? To whom does Tia will tie the knot? To know, watch the film.
Kapoor and Sons is basically a complete family package which shows you the combination of love, affection, emotion, drama and comedy. The cleverly written script will not gets you bore even for some minutes and you will enjoy the ups and downs to come in the film. The first half is the life of the film and each and every frame will keep you in check. The only hurdle is the little bit of slow speed just after the interval but the presence of Rishi Kapoor would feel you energetic throughout the course.
The Music of Kapoor and Sons has already got full marks by the music lovers specially Kar Gai Chull and Bolna are currently tops the chartbusters list.
Rishi Kapoor has done fantastic work as grandfather. Sidharth and Alia are looking wonderful and their dialogue delivery is quite enhanced from the last few films. Fawad Khan is day by day improving as an actor. Him, as a big brother will surprise you with his acting skills. Rest of the star cast have also done commendable job.
My last words for Kapoor and Sons are if you like family dramas with the mixtures of emotion love and comedy, this is a must watch for you. You will enjoy a lot. The diehard fans of Sid and Ali would surely watch the film.
My Rating to Kapoor and Sons is 3 out of 5 stars.
