Dimple and Luv meet on-line, are attracted to each other, and the former travels to India where the two families get the couple formally engaged. It is then Dimple decides that she prefers Kush. Watch as things spiral out of control when she insists that Kush must elope with her. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

I cannot see anyone much older than 30 particularly enjoying the film.
28 December 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Mere Brother Ki Dulhan" is different from the many other Indian films I have seen. It's MUCH more self-consciously hip and is clearly designed for an audience younger than 30. And, unfortunately, I think the film is a very hard sell for anyone older.

The film begins in London. An Indian guy and his girlfriend break up. Then, he asks his brother back in India to find him a bride--to arrange a marriage. This is VERY unusual, as usually this is the father's job--but somehow Kush is chosen for the task. The search for the right bride is pretty funny and most of the marriages he considers are pretty awful. However, the last choice, Miss Dixit (the pronunciation of this name is priceless) turns out to be a very surprising one, as the girl turns out to be someone he met five years earlier. In a flashback scene, you see that she is loud, brash, free-spirited and rather self-absorbed---VERY self-absorbed. And, slowly you see that she really hasn't changed very much---yet you know that she and Kush will fall in love and the arranged marriage will not take place as this is a HUGE cliché in Indian pictures. Considering that Kush seems like a nice guy, you really have no idea why he eventually falls for her and he just seems too nice for such a firecracker of a girl--a girl, incidentally, that seems as un-Indian as possible. This inconsistency is a major problem I had with the movie, though there were other problems--most importantly how incredibly self-consciously hip the film was--as if it only wanted to appeal to a very narrow audience of people who like clubbing, loud characters and pop music. I also wonder if perhaps Indians see westerners as being like this girl--who was supposedly raised in the UK. Well, even in the UK she would be considered obnoxious and annoying--and possibly mentally ill! Westerners are NOT like her...thank God! To sum up the movie best, I hated it.
