Brothers for Life (Kai Po Che): Berlin Review

9:40 AM PST 2/15/2013 by Deborah Young

A standard Bollywood tale of friendship erupts into dramatic violence.
A rollicking male bonding
picture about three buddies who open a cricket academy in
India's exotic Gujarat, Brothers for Life turns extremely dark and violent in the last half hour, becoming a far more significant film holding strong crossover
potential as well as festival interest.

Actor turned director
Abhishek Kapoor (his 2006 Aryan was a boxing drama) puts muscle and passion into the game, but comes into his
own in depicting the horrors of the ferocious Hindu-Muslim clashes that shook Ahmedabad in 2002. The Walt Disney
subsidiary UTV, which also
produced, is releasing world- wide on Feb. 22 in the U.S. and U.K. following its Berlin Panorama premiere.

It's the year 2000 and India is riding a wave of hope and prosperity. In the ancient city of
Ahmedabad, three determined youths beg their relatives to finance their dream: a sports
shop and school which will train tomorrow's cricket stars.

The check is already in the pocket of sensible, accountant- minded Govind ( Rajkumar
Yadav, who had a role in Gangs of Wasseypur) when the moody Ishaan (dancer and popular TV
actor Sushat Singh Rajput)
loses his temper over his sister's suitor and bashes in a brand new car. Uncle naturally thinks
twice about bankrolling the enterprise.

Luckily their serious pal Omi (TV actor Amit Sadh) has an uncle, too, one who is running for political office and has plenty of cash on hand. They set up shop inside a Hindu temple complex
and are soon rolling along. But Govind has set his sights on a bigger place in a new shopping
mall going up across the
highway. While he makes business plans, Ishaan finds personal satisfaction in coaching Ali, a pint-sized talent from a Muslim neighborhood. At Ishaan's house, Govind tutors his pretty but unscholastic sister Vidya
( Amrita Puri of Aisha) in math. Her head is full of other ideas, however, and she uses her feminine savvy to make him fall
for her. Naturally, they keep Ishaan in the dark, even when they spend the night together after a colorful dance festival.

The scene of the three boys going to a fortress on the beach to celebrate their first paycheck is choreographed to the sound of Amit Trivedi's joyful score. Their bare-chested horsing around shows they know how
to flex muscles in front of a camera, and ends with all three making daredevil leaps into the
sea. Had the film continued in this vein, it wouldn't stand out from
the many Bollywood stories revved up by catchy songs and gym-trained young actors with
toothy white smiles. Instead, Kapoor boldly plunges into two major historical events: the
2001 earthquake that killed 18,000 people and which sends Govind's dreams crashing down, and the controversial
Ayodhya temple dispute.
Few viewers who are unfamiliar with scriptwriter Chetan
Bhagat's novel The 3 Mistakes of My Life, on which the film is based, will be expecting these
happy-go-lucky characters to get involved in the violent Hindu-Muslim clashes of 2002.
At least 58 people died, many burned alive, on a train carrying Hindu activists wanting to build
a temple in Ayodhya on the site of a 16th century mosque. In the wave of rioting and violence that followed, thousands more were killed in Gujarat.

Kapoor stages a single, terrifyingly vivid attack of Hindus against the population living in the Muslim quarter, who are barricaded in fear behind strong doors, torn down by the fury of the mob. The involvement of all the young characters in the massacre turns the final scenes into very powerful drama. The film ends on a well-handled note of reconciliation that allows audiences to leave the theater with a tear in the eye.

Though all three main actors are well cast, Ishaan is the true hero of the tale and the handsome, impulsive Sushant Singh Rajput embodies him as a mesmerizing presence.

Sushant's tryst with cricket

BySeema Sinha, TNN | Feb 16, 2013, 12.00 AM IST
Sushant's tryst with cricket
Sushant Singh RajputMore Pics
Sushant Singh Rajput had to literally sweat it out for his role in Kai Po Che.

Sushant plays Ishaan, a Gujarati boy who is crazy about cricket. He underwent practice sessions with seasoned cricketers -- like Indian bowlers Zaheer Khan and Ashish Nehra.

The role demanded Sushant to be absolutely fit - physically and mentally - and build his stamina, too. Though always on the leaner side, the actor had to tone his body further and knock down a few kilos to look the part.

Two weeks of rigorous practice sessions and a combination of strength training and cardio, along with a good diet, did the trick. But more than preparing for the role, Sushant took it as playing a sport, his passion since childhood. Sushant's family has always been crazy about cricket. In fact, his sister was a professional cricketer.

omg...sushant Silly
