Users Rating: [ratings] ★★★☆☆
Box Office: Hit

“Mere Brother Ki Dulhan” is a quirky romantic comedy set in the world of the upper middle class in Northern India. Kush Agnihotri (Imran Khan) is looking for the ideal Indian bride for his Brother Luv Agnihotri (Ali Zafar) who stays in London.

In his quest, Kush goes through an array of wacky encounters with several families until he finally finds that perfect girl in Dimple Dixit (Katrina Kaif), the craziest / wackiest girl he has ever known.

Both the families meet. Formalities completed. Preparations proceed in full swing. And just then, our hero Kush falls in love with Dimple… his brother’s dulhan.

What follows is a comical and unpredictable series of events in this unusual topsy-turvy tale of love.

Making Of:

The performances are easy on the eyes. The unlikely chemistry between Katrina and Imran coupled with Ali Zafar’s impeccable comic timing keeps you glued to the screen. Imran, frankly, seems the apt choice for this role and he more than lives up to it. Katrina is only getting better and more endearing with every release. Ali Zafar is a supremely talented actor and this film proves it yet again.

On the whole, MERE BROTHER KI DULHAN is a delectably wholesome, heartening, feel-good entertainer. Not just a comedy, but also a tender, bittersweet saga, this rom-com is sure to melt your heart, then restore it anew all over again. Yet another winner from Yash Raj!
