Also, Alia’s chemistry with Sidharth and Fawad was something intriguing. Was it another love triangle in Hindi cinema? Read here to know more.
There is fun moments, emotional atyachaar and yes, love quotient. But to every story there is some twist and tale. ‘Kapoor & Sons’ is a visual treat. Beautiful scenic views will make you travel with the characters in the film till end. It’s a story of a simple family where there is lot of trouble. To add on the trouble in the cutest way is dadu/grandpa (Rishi) who practices of being dead. Ratna Pathak and Rajat Kapoor are trying to run the family somehow. Like every other normal family even they have financial crisis but their relief is their two sons Rahul (Fawad) and Arjun (Sidharth) who work overseas.

But when the boys get to know that their dadu is bit serious (health-wise) they are back home. The bond between dadu and his grandsons is something that will bring smile on your face. Even at this old age, dadu does not shy to tease the nurses in the hospital or tell his grandsons how he loved watching Mandakini in Ram Teri Ganga Maili. At the same time he expresses his biggest wish to his grandsons, and that is….? Wait!

The little funny dialogues from the adorable dadu make him the peacemaker of the Kapoor khaandaan. Amidst all the tensions, the boys land up to a cool, sexy and sweet girl – Tia Singh (Alia). Her timings for the witty side failed but the kiss timing – it was perfect (still guessing with whom right?). There is some serious issues too in this family drama. Mother (Ratna) considers one son way more than perfect and ignores the other. But this is not the only reason why there was trouble between the two dashing brothers. But sadly, even she is going through a bad marital phase. (ALSO READ: Kapoor & Sons most identifiable film of Dharma Productions: Karan Johar)
Parents fight, brothers have a reason to fight and mind you, the reason is not what you think. But what dadu wished for, it happens in the end but in the most unexpected and emotional way. ‘Kapoor & Sons’ is a good movie. It will not ruin your weekend if you intend to watch. The songs are definitely good and yes, Fawad and Sidharth look hot. But someone whom you’ll love the most is Rishi Kapoor. The man has nailed it again in the character of a grandfather.
