Haven't we watched scores of films on dysfunctional families? But #KapoorAndSons steers clear of repetitiveness/melodrama. Emerges trumps...KapoorAndSons is one of Dharma's BEST films. Watertight script, remarkable storytelling, crisp editing. Film hits the right notes...Take a bow Shakun Batra. You're a splendid storyteller. KJo and Fox, this one's a sure-shot WINNER. My 4 stars for this one! #KapoorAndSon

On the whole, Kapoor & Sons is an entertaining film for the youth and the families, mainly of the cities, and for the multiplex-frequenting viewers. It will not be able to do much in the single-screen cinemas and in small centres but its business in the cities and multiplexes will be big enough to make the film a hit.

Kapoor & Sons is a film about a family with deep-rooted troubles, and -- for two-thirds of its running time -- it works rather well. The aforementioned problems are all there, but the characters are genuinely easy to warm up to, and the performances are pretty strong.Shakun Batra’s sophomore effort is a finely, intelligently crafted film which stumbles because of its eagerness.

This film is produced by Dharma Productions along with Fox. It is heartening to see Karan Johar’s film family having grown up enough to get out of their bubble and face some tangible issues. Thankfully, there is no Kantaben and so no treating someone’s sexuality flippantly either. Watch this. It might remind of your own family issues and make you a bit squirmish but is also largely feel good and entertaining.

What impressed me most though is how the tenderness under the tempers comes through. Despite the bitterness, affections have somehow survived. It’s difficult to hold a grudge for too long around a brother, a parent. You just accept what the other person is, believes the film. Sometimes when life offers you a lollipop instead of change, you see the joke in it and zoom ahead.

Fawad plays his straight, and he doesn’t lift off the screen. Rishi gets some laughs in, but has to struggle against the heavy prosthetics. The two people who kept me watching all the way were Rajat Kapoor and Ratna Pathak Shah : they play long-time partners in a marriage gone sour, and create a relationship which has enough strength and weaknesses that you want to know more about. These two deserve a separate film.

Alia Bhatt lends the free-spirited and fun-loving Tia impressive malleability. In the emotional scene in which she reveals a tragic turning point in her life, she switches gear effortlessly.Rajat Kapoor and Ratna Pathak are in fine fettle as the jaded man and wife who have drifted apart irretrievably.Rishi Kapoor, notwithstanding the overdone prosthetic makeup, is perfect in the guise of the full-blooded nonagenarian that nothing can stop.Kapoor And Sons is a winner all the way.

Shakun Batra’s lively direction captures the family moments brilliantly and one feels for this tale in an instant. It’s an endearing family movie! The writers try to overdo when it comes to humor. Comedy seems like a weak link in this otherwise emotionally burdened film. Kapoor And Sons could be your pick if emotional family dramas are your thing. This is a slice of life film, laden with some cherishable moments.

But all credit goes to director Shakun, who holds together all of this like a perfect winning trophy. His sensibilities in the family drama genre will certainly set a new benchmark.

Director Shakun Batra and writer Ayesha Devitre Dhillon may win points for tackling some conflicts untouched by Bollywood, but their process is unfortunately sluggish, and often, exaggerated, ruining the impact. There are clever setpieces but he never weaves them into a tight plot.It’s a ticking time bomb, but one that fizzles out in the end.

Director Shakun Bhatra’s Kapoor & Sons, a story about two brothers who return home to the picturesque Coonoor, a hill station in Tamil Nadu, to visit their ailing grandfather, is a touching film made terrific by some great performances. Of course, that the two are supremely good-looking only helps matters. The expectations hoisted on being the perfect child in an Indian family are wonderfully told in this film. Kapoor & Sons flourishes as a unit and is the sum total of mature performances by the entire Kapoor clan.

  2. Nice watch...would have been much bettet if sidharth malhotra could act

  3. Excellent movie..story is jsz awesome..songs good..acting fab..overall my rating 3.75/5..:D

  4. KAPOOR & SONS [SINCE 1921]:
    Perfectly Imperfect! [3.5/5]

    It seems Bollywood has learnt its way to deal Indian families in films the way it should be. Chaotic, dramatic, relatable and real! With Shakun Batra’s KAPOOR & SONS (SINCE 1921), even Dharma Productions have come a long way. Forget Karan Johar’s all elite, genteel and heavenly prosperous families melting & merging patently into the equally overwhelming interiors inspired by latest interior design magazines! The characters here, in Shakun’s world, don’t really chew their words before spitting them out. On the contrary, they are loose out in the open to grind each other’s peace unabashedly. Backed up by good writing and even better direction skills, KAPOOR & SONS (SINCE 1921) marks the arrival of a totally fascinating and utterly dysfunctional ‘on-screen’ family you would love to see more of it.

    In a picture-perfect locality of Coonoor, a 90-year old grandfather [Rishi Kapoor in his prosthetic best], out of boredom, is practicing his forthcoming event of death. The rest of the family hardly pays any attention to his gimmicks, until one severe heart attack takes its course of action sincerely. The grandsons are flying down from abroad. The family reunites but there’s nothing what it looks from the outside. Everyone in the family has something to hide, lie and complain about. The husband [Rajat Kapoor] has financial crisis eating his head. The wife [Ratna Pathak] suspects him of adultery. The elder son [Fawad Khan] is a successful novelist carrying unbearable mass of being his parent’s perfect son. The younger one [Siddharth Malhotra] accuses them for not being equally warm to him. And then, there is an inevitable chaos of inter-personal issues in the family that declines to settle down.

    Shakun Batra scores most of his marks in the first half only where he introduces the all messed-up characters in the family one by one in a particular scene. Shakun gives us many delightful moments in the rest of the film but this one single scene never loses its impact on you. He hits the right note almost every time there is a conflict in waiting to take over the drama. Unfortunately, the comic elements don’t make you feel as satisfying. Shakun tries roughly everything from some ‘below the belt’ gags performed comfortably by the actors to some harmless yet discouraging ‘potty’ jokes. The plot dealing with real human behavior especially in the relationship of the brothers keeps you hooked till the very end. Siddharth playing the younger one sees Fawad- the elder one as his competition but the moments in which they share their warmth in the relationship are enough to celebrate. The writing constantly works against falling into the pit of predictability, despite some melodramatic approach towards the climax.

    Alia Bhatt brings with her a certain kind of energy, innocence, humor and vivacity in spirit of the film. She excels in her introduction scene while playing almost herself and in one emotional sequence which is a complete letdown by comfortable writing but has Alia as a winner. Rishi Kapoor’s shameless, blatant and brash grandfather act is one of the most enjoyable. Ratna Pathak and Rajat Kapoor are a worthy addition to the cast providing a solid support throughout the film. Siddharth and Fawad both look incredibly charming on screen but Fawad steals the show with his strong hold in the moments where he has to express and expose his soul.

    At the end, KAPOOR & SONS (SINCE 1921) is a family saga very distinct and dissimilar from Karan Johar’s typical design of Indian families. It’s not perfect. It’s not ideal but it’s real and relatable in its guts and will. I wish Shakun had finished it in same zeal and madness he had taken the start. Even then, it’s like one of those joint family photographs where not everyone is at his best but still, you would like to keep it with you. [3.5/5]

  5. Gaurav Rai summary de diya kar bhai likhne se pahle 3 line ki :p

  6. Sudhanshu soni Title aur stars isi k liye bane hai bhai pura padhne se pahle use bhi dekh liya karo

  7. This film is marvelous.Please do not miss it.

  8. Bhai Gaurav rai 90% vahi ratings deta hai jo upar average rating aa rahi hai

  9. good potboiler which will give u some laughs and tears too at the end. don't miss

  10. I could not sit through completion, came out few minutes before. Overly sexual old grandfather's comedy gets tiresome and unnatural beyond a point, and there is nothing at all charming about Alia's character. Only first half an hour has some real fun moments, after that there is only "supposed to be funny" grandfather's jokes, and then unnecessary emotional angles/tangles.
    Probably all critics are giving high points due to gay angle which has become fad now-a-days ...

  11. The movie mad me laugh, cry,feel sad and ultimately gave hope ,

    I have no idea how but somehow by the end of the movie i felt like i am part of the kapoor;s family.

  12. Rajeev masand ka review nahi aya, lagta hai karan johar ne paisa nahi diye is bar

  13. Average movie,it's just another story of a normal mediocre family, nothing special, good time pass.
