Brothers quick movie review: Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra’s action drama is bogged down by its slow pace!


 The Akshay Kumar-Sidharth Malhotra starrer hits the big screens tomorrow.

Akshay Kumar has had a wonderful year so far. Both his films Baby and Gabbar Is Back did good business at box office. Will he strike a hattrick with Karan Johar’s Brothers starring Sidharth Malhotra, Jackie Shroff and Jacqueline Fernandez. Lets find out.

Our reviewer Tushar P Joshi is reviewing the film and this is what he had to say about the first half of Brothers:

Brothers begins on a slow note. Taking time to introduce the key characters of the father played by Jackie Shroff and his two sons David (Akshay) and Monty (Sidharth), the film has some high octane dramatic scenes that create the right kind of atmosphere for what’s to follow. The film revolves around the well choreographed action scenes involving Mixed Martial Arts. A lot of time is spent developing the characters and the intricate relationships between them. The story keeps swinging between the past and the present. Karan Malhotra does a fantastic job of giving us a backstory of why the brothers have a rift and what’s to follow post interval. Kareena Kapoor Khan’sMera Naam Mary Hai song is also a highlight. There is no way you can take your eyes off her. You need to have loads of patience to enjoy the first half. There is an lot of build up and anticipation to the big fights that will follow in the second half. Sidharth and Akshay look the parts and are in their best shape. Jacqueline is pretty but doesn’t really have much to do so far. The track of Akshay’s daughter and her illness also works in creating the desired emotional impact. While the first half is about the family drama, the second will be about the blood curling action scenes.
