People have been saying, it is the most honest & relatable family movie ever made in Bollywood.
To an extent, maybe its true..a dysfunctional family, fights, a love story…emotional drama etc..etc.. etc..
Why I thought ‘Kapoor & Sons was a good movie but in a very average way.
To begin with, I never knew families like this exist in India. For the director to actually come out with a script like this, he would have needed an idea..and that idea has surely not come out at looking at families in India. THIS MOVIE IS NOT RELATABLE to Indians.. In countries abroad – YES, most families are fucked up! I haven’t been privileged to see one in India as yet. Small fights, misunderstandings do happen in every family but parents arguing at every given opportunity and that ending up in a fight, I thought it was really stupid!! Seeing the parents argue was seriously annoying.
I thought the location of the movie was good, great backdrop, good cast..the story well.. like I said..so-so! Songs too I thought, were average.
Personally I wouldn’t say it was a great film by any standard, I could not relate to it. I thought Rishi Kapoor was a class apart, the cutest Daddu ever 🙂
Besides Daddu, I think the dog was the best in the film, followed by Alia Bhatt. Fawad Khan, seriously! who is this guy? (Okay! I just googled..he’s not Indian, he’s from Pakistan..his performance was more like that of the Pakistan Cricket Team, looks good from far but fails to deliver – he really can’t act!) Sidharth was ok! Rajat Kapoor works well within himself and Ratna Pathak Shah..someone tell her to retire from Indian Cinema pls!
…and yes, one more thing..who keeps their laptop unlocked without a password nowadays? (Rahul’s mother looking through his photographs on his laptop) ..what followed that, was something I really did not expect!
Looking forward to Ki & Ka and Baaghi (Shradha Kapoor <3 )
