The film industry is back in form! Last week, BODYGUARD opened to an overwhelming, record-breaking start and now, MERE BROTHER KI DULHAN has also embarked on a fantastic start at the ticket window. The film had an 80% to 90% start at most screens across the country [at several places it was 100%], making its distributors jump with joy.

The fresh pairing coupled with the vibrant and eye-catching promos as well as the hit musical score have contributed to the terrific start. The youth has thronged in large numbers and the Day 1 as well as the Weekend 1 numbers are expected to be big.

Mere Brother Ki Dulhan Takes Very Good Opening

Mere Brother Ki Dulhan has taken a very good opening of 80% plus at multiplexes at most places in the country. Delhi NCR and Punjab were super strong as was Ahmedabad.

Places like Delhi, Chandigarh, Ludhiana and Ahmedabad saw full houses at some of the shows. The opening was bit lower in places like Nagpur and Jodhpur but still at 70% which is good.

The fresh promos, hit music and very entertaining look of the film did the trick and got Mere Brother Ki Dulhan a very good start and it is all set to have a very good weekend at the box office

Mere Brother Ki Dulhan: Movie Review

Gaurav MalaniGaurav Malani, TNN | Sep 9, 2011, 04.50PM IST

It's more than obvious with a self-explanatory title like Mere Brother Ki Dulhan that the story of the film would be about a guy falling for his brother's bride-to-be. Predictability seeps in this Yash Raj romantic comedy from the title itself!

When Imran Khan does a takeoff on the three ruling Khans of Bollywood in the opening credits, you somehow sense that the film has defined its domain. And it isn't long before you realize that the narrative is taking the route of Shah Rukh Khan's Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge . By the time the boy comprehends his love for the girl, she is already engaged to someone else. Only this time it's the boy's brother - so it's more of an inhouse affair!

The only advancement that the film shows in its storytelling is that Katrina Kaif, who holds the record of playing a Bollywood bride who runs away on her wedding day from one hero to another in the climax ( Humko Deewana Kar Gaye, Namastey London, Singh is Kinng, Ajab Prem Ki Ghajab Kahani ), for a change, makes the shift on her engagement day itself by interval point.

Like SRK from DDLJ , the boy refuses to elope with the girl. So the two have to device ways to ward off the wedding now. While an imaginative screenplay could have helped the second half sail through in such situation, the film resorts to conventional conflicts like bringing back the brother's ex-flame in the plot to bhaang -based confessions.

What still makes the film watchable is Katrina's live-wire energy wherein she never goes overboard and keeps bustling with vivacity through the runtime. With Imran Khan restricted in his range and the immensely talented Ali Zafar being reduced to a second fiddle, it's left up to Katrina to save the ship, which she ably does as far as the average script allows her to. Also despite the familial cross-connection, the overall spirit of the film remains lighthearted throughout and never gets into the high-voltage family drama mode.

The screenplay fails to tap the little potential that the story offers (esp. in the second half) pretty much like the film fails to exploit the talent of Ali Zafar. The writing is shallow and resorts to a convenient climax. The continual spoof on Shah Rukh Khan's My Name is Khan act is neither amusing nor caustic.

Like any Yash Raj film, the music is peppy, the styling is uber-cool and the cinematography is striking (despite the repetitive shots of Taj Mahal).

Imran Khan is decent in his role and absolutely funny at some instances. Ali Zafar shows good comic timing whenever he gets a chance though he remains underused. Katrina Kaif looks gorgeous and her free-spirited act makes you sit through the film. John Abraham's cameo is so pointless that one wonders why he was there in the film. Arfeen Khan's spoof on Shah Rukh Khan is as much pointless.

Mere Brother ki Dulhan is relatively old and familiar entertainment.
