Mere Brother Ki Dulhan - movie review

‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ is a quirky romantic comedy set in the world of the upper middle class in Northern India.

One fine day, he realizes that his life partner should be an ideal desi girl and promptly asks his younger brother Kush to find that perfect bride. Mere Brother Ki Dulhan movie review…

Kush is a 28 year old guy, from Dehra Dun and now working in Mumbai as an assistant director in the film industry. But his newest job is to find the ideal Indian bride for his elder brother Luv Agnihotri, who lives in London. After a long search, the sincere Kush eventually succeeds in finding that right girl in Dimple Dixit.

In his quest, Kush goes through an array of wacky encounters with several families until he finally finds that perfect girl in Dimple Dixit (Katrina Kaif), the craziest / wackiest girl he has ever known.

Dimple Dixit (Katrina Kaif) is 27 and a classic case of bahar se kuch aur, andar se kuch aur. Born in London, this livewire has always believed in living life with no boundaries yet she’s always remained a true desi at heart. Dimple decides that she wants to finally settle down in life and is on the lookout for a “rich sorted out pack-age”.

If there is one word to describe Luv Agnihotri (Ali Zafar) it would be… He is a confused 30 year old bachelor. This stylish Videshi babu, seemed to have it all. A great job as an investment banker and a great life in London. A Casanova at heart with a weakness only for a pretty face.

Both the families meet. Formalities completed. Preparations proceed in full swing. And just then, our hero Kush falls in love with Dimple… his brother’s dulhan and things start to get crazy.

There is much drama, marriage preparations, an item number and then the act of bringing in the fourth character of that of Tara D’Souza is entertaining in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan.

The handsome Imran Khan is again restrained and the role is apt for him. In contrast, Katrina Kaif acts over the top wild cat as tailored in the role. The only overacted part was that of the drunken Katrina acting as Veeru atop an open vehicle. Other scenes where she misbehaves on the scooter and taking up a pangaa with an auto rickshaw driver was funny.

The first half of Mere Brother Ki Dulhan has umpteen wedding preparations, and entertaining, and the party begins with the arrival of Ali Zafar and there is no holding him back. There are some genuine comical moments and the story has unpredictable series of events leading to a predictable happy ending.
