‘Kapoor & Sons’ is the latest Dharma production manufacture starring Rishi Kapoor, Fawad Khan, Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt among other lead actors.
As customary with Dharma, the movie thrives on delinquencies in a common-man family, the little joys and chaos which relations can bring, and how fleeting can life really be.
The movie has these small plot points that immediately connect to the audience, like where two siblings have a strained aspect in their bond, but still care for each other, meanwhile the father and the mother too have their differences which translate into quarrels that appear rib-tickling and futile.
But soon the plot thickens, as these relationship problems surface with deeper manifestations like social and cultural stigmas, infidelity and child-favoritism.
The story is about how a family deals with such make or break situations.
Rishi Kapoor bags the trophy for audience’s favorite character with his raw innocence and spot on acting. Fawad Khan overshadows Sidharth in almost every department, be it acting, screen presence or leaving the ladies feel weak in their knees. Rajat Kapoor and Ratna Pathak add a lot of intensity with their powerful and precise deliveries.
Overall, it’s a good watch!
