Mere Brother Ki Dulhan is a mesh between two previous Bollywood films: Sorry Bhai and Tanu Weds Manu. It is definitely a one-time watch, but the film doesn’t offer anything in terms of originality.

Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan is a story of Kush (Imraan Khan) who is handed the job of finding a bride for his brother Luv (Ali Zafar).  After many futile attempts, Kush finally stumbles upon Dimple (Katrina Kaif), and thinks that she would make the perfect bride for his brother. However, in the process of introducing Dimple and Luv and preparing for the wedding, Kush falls in love with Dimple. The rest of it forms the climax of the film.

The film offers a great deal in the first half. The background story about Dimple and Kush is very well shot. The first half is a fresh look on the story, but the second half drags on for sometime especially towards the end, where you just want the movie to end because the rest is quite predictable. There are no big twists in the film, which leaves the audience saying, “that end was totally obvious.”

Imraan Khan is not too bad in the film, but not too great either. He plays the simple guy with a good presence of mind, and a good understanding of the surroundings. Katrina Kaif is seen in a completely new avatar. She plays a rock chic who doesn’t give a damn about what anyone thinks, and says what she pleases. However, in an attempt to be completely carefree, at times her acting was a bit annoying and loud. There is definitely a lot of room for improvement in terms of the English accented Hindi. But overall, her acting is tolerable in the film. Ali Zafar is the brother who is crazy about women, and will flirt with any girl in sight. He is someone to look out for in the film, and we might see him more of him in Bollywood.

Overall, the film is a clean, family entertainer. It is a film you can watch with family and friends without having to worry about any awkward situations. Give it a watch if you enjoy band, baaja and baraat type films. 

FILM-O-METER RATING: 2.5 OUT OF 5
