Literally translated to My Brother’s Bride, this movie’s promos seemed quite promising and Katrina Kaif did look good too. It’s all about a young man who tries to arrange a marriage for his brother, but finds himself falling in love with the chosen fiancée.
The story is about Luv who lives in London, who breaks off his engagement with Payali and asks his brother Kush in India to find him a bride. This is based on the fact that Luv knows that whatever his brother’s choice will be, he will accept because no one knows or understands him better than Kush does.
From here begins Kush’s journey to start finding the perfect bride for his brother, bumps into Dimple who he remembers as beer-drinking rock star chick and suddenly finds himself falling in love with the girl he has found for his brother. The families have been introduced, everyone is all set to gear up for a wedding when the lovebirds confess their love to each other and decide on what to do next.
Dimple kidnaps Kush, gets persuaded to come back to the house and then some more plotting starts in earnest to bring Payali back into Luv’s life and get them married off to each other so that Dimple and Kush can be together forever.
The first of half of the movie was rather slow for me. It seemed to be dragging but the second half picks up and gets pretty interesting. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s a Yash Raj banner movie but everything just falls into place, everyone lives happily ever after and there’s a feel good factor all around. The director and writer of the movie, Ali Abbas Zafar, says that he was inspired to do this movie after reading the matrimonial adverts in the local papers and how people go out of their way to portray themselves worthy of a life partner in an advert.
The soundtrack is quite OK. I’ve only taken to one song – ‘Isq Risk’. Lovely song in the voice of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and it’s got a rather catchy tune. I’ve already uploaded it on my iPod.
And I just LOVED the mention of ♥ Salman Khan ♥ and Dabbang in the movie… you’ll have to watch it to find out more. I thought it was really witty and funny.
