| A Winner All The Way!
2016 has found its first pleasant surprise in the form of 'Kapoor and Sons'. This One's a Heartwamring, Emotionally Powerful & also Humorous film, that wins you over. The Writing, The Direction & The Performances, all, are Tremendous.

'Kapoor and Sons' Synopsis: After their grandpa (Rishi Kapoor) gets a heart attack, Two Brothers (Fawad Khan & Sidharth Malhotra) come back to Coonoor & re-kindle with their Dysfunctional Family. Chaos Follows...

'Kapoor and Sons' is a wholesome entertainer. I was seriously impressed & engrossed by the flow of the narrative. The entire concept, of this imperfect, dysfunctional family & the secrets within them, has a terrific undercurrent of emotions. While the first-hour is light in tone & also keeps space for some great jokes, the second-hour shifts into serious family drama, but the shift in the mood, never slows down the momentum. In fact, 'Kapoor and Sons' strengthens even more as it progresses & you begin to feel for the characters a lot more.

Shakun Batra & Ayesha Devitre Dhillon's Screenplay is Tremendous. The Writing is genuinely great, as this story flows wonderfully & ends, on a very high emotional note. There is scope for the emotional bits, comedy, some romance & of course drama. And it all fits in perfectly. Batra's Direction is Excellent. He returns to the Director's chair after a long time & seems more self-assured this time. Cinematography captures the impeccable beauty of Coonoor, aptly. Editing is crisp. Music by Various Artists is melodious. Art & Costume Design are first-rate. Make-Up (Especially for Rishi Kapoor) is fantastic.

Performance-Wise: 'Kapoor and Sons' boasts fabulous performances from its cast. Rishi Kapoor is adorable as the grandpa, who is unmistakably naughty & also the sweetest of his bloodline. Fawad Khan does a remarkable job, enacting a difficult role with flourish. His character is "Unconventional" & a complete departure from the stereotype "Hero" roles. Sidharth Malhotra is natural & portrays a rather sympathetic part with confidence. He & Fawad share a good on-screen chemistry between them & their confrontations are nicely handled too. Ratna Pathak Shah is flawless as the long-suffering woman of the house. Just watch her in the scene when she discovers of Fawad's true-self, her expressions are priceless. Rajat Kapoor is first-rate as the hard to like father/husband. And lastly Alia Bhatt, who's smile alone is worth your ticket.

On the whole, 'Kapoor and Sons' is a must watch. Two Thumbs Up!
