Brothers is a typical Hindi dramatic movie with loads of desi twist in it. The movie Brothers was released on August 14, 2015. The film starred actors like Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra in the leading roles. Jacqueline Fernandez gets her Bollywood break. After a while, Jackie Shroff and Shefali Shah play supporting roles as well. The film is an official remake of the 2011 Hollywood film Warrior.
Until now, Bollywood has shown a lot of movies and songs that portray the relationship of brothers, so it really isn’t something new. Some of them are related to love, and some are related to hatred. But this time, there is a unique twist to the relationship of brothers – they are both great on the fighting ring.
About the Story
The movie starts when Gary Fernandes (Jackie Sharroff) is finally out of jail, but only one son, i.e., Monty Fernandes (Sidharth Malhotra), comes to pick him up. Gary is agitated and asks why David Fernandes (Akshay Kumar), the other son, did not turn up. To which he did not have an answer.
David Fernandes (Akshay Kumar), who is the elder son of Gary, is living his life happily with his wife Jenny Fernandes (Jacqueline Fernandez) and struggles to fulfill the expenses of their daughter, who suffers from kidney disease.
Various situations arise where both the brothers hate each other to the extent where things get out of control, and they cannot bear the company of each other at all. David does hate not only his brother but also his father for killing his mother, Maria. Even after Gary realizes his mistakes and apologizes a million times, David doesn’t forgive him.
Both David and Monty turn up to become underground fighters to meet their own needs. Monty wants to be known by everyone and show Gary that he is better than David, while David’s only aim was to earn enough money for his daughter’s treatment. Due to their respective circumstances, both join the R2F (Right to Fight ) a competition of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts ) where the winner will be awarded 9 crores. Both of them entered as Indian players and fought against all the other national and international players.
A time comes when they both fight against each other they had seemed to hate each other, but couldn’t really hurt each other and in the end David wins the fight.
The Up Side
Brothers have shown the relationship between two humans and their emotions. Portraying that people who hate each other despite their bonds cannot turn up hurting each other because they are bonded with connections that they cannot ignore. The movie is not really the same as Warriors, and it felt the film’s director Karan Malhotra just lost track while making the remake. Few songs like “Mera Naam Mary,” starred by Kareena Kapoor, turned up to be a super hit. While few of the songs like “Sapna Jahan ” did not do so well. The screenplay of the movie is well done and fascinating. The film’s background score is average. The film is not a Bollywood masala but has a desi twist indeed. Brothers is a decent one-time family watch movie.
The box office collection of Brothers was good but did not manage to cross 100 crores.
