Really good remake and even better movie!
15 August 2015 | by reyaazkhSee all my reviews

Let's get the obvious out of the way, brothers is not better than warrior and that's a good thing. First of all it needs to be noted that brothers is not a rip off of warrior but a fully licensed remake of the Hollywood movie. Now onto the movie itself. Brothers which stars Akshay Kumar, Jackie Shroff & Sidharth Malhotra in the lead roles is a movie which promises big things, and wishes to please many audiences and it succeeds exceptionally. The movie is able to set up an emotional back story for the lead up to main events of the film which is the R2F. What this movie does differently to warrior is it provides insight into the history of the the lead characters and the reason behind conflict, it also alters the story to suit a Bollywood audience and try a few things differently. The movies biggest asset is without a doubt the actors, each of the three leads are able to portray their characters with the conviction, emotion and physicality that is required of them. Be it Jackie showing us his regret and conviction, Sidharth showing his anger and motivation or Akshay who provides us his emotion and motivation, each actor excels in their roles. Special mention must be given to Akshay and Sidharth whose training has certainly not gone unnoticed and made the movie all the more engaging, which brings us to the next point the fighting is solid, this movie contains fighting like never before in Bollywood and succeeds and providing edge of our seat action. The songs of the movie are good setting up the emotions, back story or the training, however the Mary song seems to be there just to showcase Kareena Kapoor. The story and screenplay along with the script are superb and credit must certainly be given to Karan Malhotra for directing this movie extremely well. My only issue with the movie is that a few things could've been cut like the Mary song which feels forced and a waste of time, or been worked around to provide more. Overall this movie is a must watch for the story, script, screenplay and most importantly the actors who do full justice to their roles and will definitely be written down in their filmographys as one of the best films and a must watch. Do not go into this movie wishing to compare it to warrior because then you are asking yourself to not enjoy this, instead go into this wanting to watch a Bollywood movie that isn't your typical masala film and instead a family drama as well as a sport drama. Definitely a must watch!
