A rollercoaster of laughs, tears and emotions! Kapoor and Sons, a dramedy with soul. Watch the trailer now. Starring Rishi Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt, Fawad Khan, Rajat Kapoor and Ratna Pathak Shah.
The film — which stars Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra, Fawad Khan, Rishi Kapoor, Ratna Patak Shah, and Rajat Kapoor — looks like an engaging drama about a dysfunctional family. Malhotra and Khan play (unreasonably good-looking) brothers who apparently share a volatile relationship, bonding one moment and throwing things at each other the next. Rajat Kapoor and Shah play their warring parents. Bhatt plays the brothers’ potential love interest, although it’s difficult to discern what her larger role in the movie is. And the scene-stealer seems to be Rishi Kapoor, playing the wheelchair-bound family patriarch, who is almost unrecognisable under the layers of Benjamin-Button-esque make-up.
This is Batra’s second film after the much-liked Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu (2012), which has since garnered more appreciation as a charming, unconventional rom-com. Kapoor And Sons has much of that same charm, although much of it looks familiar and somewhat derivative. But then, the characters look believable and the humour seems quite relatable and perhaps the film has a surprise or two in store for us that hasn’t been revealed yet.
