The trailers and songs of director Shakun Batra’s Kapoor & Sons have been received well by the audiences, but the film is facing its real test in the cinema halls now. The film features Fawad Khan and Sidharth Malhotra as Rahul and Arjun Kapoor respectively, while Alia Bhatt will be seen as Tia.
It’s a dysfunctional, loud family whose patriarch Amarjeet Kapoor (Rishi Kapoor) wants to see his entire family together for a photograph before he breathes his last. However, it’s a difficult feat to achieve as the family members have a strong dislike for each other.
The slice of the life story moves at a smooth pace, and actors seem to understand the curve of their characters, but too much emphasis on producing the quirky moments is quite visible.
Kapoor & Sons bears a strong Karan Johar impression and is very dramatic in nature. But, will this affect the film on the whole. Watch this space for the review.
