Brothers Story


Sometime ago Hollywood remakes in Bollywood were considered as original adaptations by the audiences who thronged the theatres with sheer wonderment. With the arrival of Hollywood studios in the Industry, producers will be lashed at, with a copyright infringement even if there is a whiff of plagiarism.

‘Brothers’ is the product of a new era, Directed by Karan Malhotra, the official remake of the super hit Warrior, starring Joel Edgerton and Tom Hardy.

As the title goes by, Brothers is about sibling rivalry between David (Akshay Kumar) and Monty (Sidharth Malhotra). Bothered from their childhood, they go for the fight that has long been awaited, towards the end of the movie like in the original.

While David is in the arena for the money that could save his ailing daughter; the other is in the game to redeem his alcoholic father, the man who is the root of all their troubles.


The backstory:


A dissolute, drunk (Jackie Shroff), Fighter father and large-hearted loving woman as a mother (Shah) are sure to be the empathizing factors.

Monty seems all set to take on his brother, David Fernandes (Akshay Kumar), when Mary interrupts the flow.

David now is a settled and loved physics teacher, lives away from the din with his wife Jenny (Jacqueline Fernandes) and a little daughter who has weak kidneys which drain David’s financial resources.

He has left the fighting, but the memories while he was under the tutelage of his father Garson Fernandes (Jackie Shroff) are still flashing.

While Monty is quite an artist who gives his opponents nightmares and succumbs them into submission within minutes of the fight, David is a strategist who first depletes all the energy of his opponents before giving the killing blow.

The much awaited fight occurs finally, it leaves the audience without a question of who is the most powerful.

Brothers Movie Review

The good:


As a matter of fact, this might be the first time that fight sequences had such extensive detailing of a high-tech arena, glittering with bright lights, deafening spectators, foreign fighters, excitable commentators (Zutshi) in Bollywood.
While most of it has a look and feel of WWF and Hollywood fight flicks, the hooded faces, the slow motions, uniformed assistants marching up the ramp, the beats all are in place and adds a grandeur to the boxing sequences.

The bad:


Well, there particularly isn’t a point when you would decide things are bad as you will never be able to differentiate between the good parts. Yes, that does mean there are no better scenes except for the glares and flares of boxing training ones.

The first half is as bad as the second half. The parts of over action will shake you off. The melodrama makes you crazy.


The background score rocks the theatres with unnecessary instrumentation. Warning, Carry your earplugs or insure your ear drums.

Brothers Performance :


Both leading men (Siddharth and Akshay) are well toned and muscled with their wrapped fists and feet : Akshay’s felicity with this `mixed martial arts’ makes his time in the ring believable and the fighter in him is a delight to watch ; the much more buff Sidharth too efficiently pulls off what it is required.

And just as abruptly, an item number by Kareena Kapoor Khan which is so generic pops up. The expressions and ‘thumkas’ look like a déjà vu from her previous ones, or maybe they are actually ripped off from her previous ones, you wouldn’t know.

The melodrama in the movie is a little too much for the contemporary trend.


Final word:


A remake the Hollywood people would be baffled by, Brothers could be watched when the DVD is out.
