Mere Brother Ki Dulhan Movie Review by Movie Critics
Taran Adarsh (BollywoodHungama.com) 4/5
MERE BROTHER KI DULHAN is a delectably wholesome, heartening, feel-good entertainer. Not just a comedy, but also a tender, bittersweet saga, this rom-com is sure to melt your heart, then restore it anew all over again. Yet another winner from Yash Raj!
Rajeev Masand (CNN-IBN) 2/5
The film doesn’t always work because it relies too heavily on silly stereotypes and clichés, and because you can see exactly where it’s going from the moment you settle into your seat.Aside from a few enjoyable moments, this film recycles so much that you’ve already seen before.
Sukanya Verma (Rediff) 2.5/5
At the end of the day, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan is a pretty ordinary effort. It’s the kind of movie where everyone looks catalogue cool and beams with enthusiasm to make the going-ons appear droll and exciting. And though one’s a sourpuss for not buying it, I’ll take the risk of being one.
Martin D’Souza (Glamsham.com) 2/5
MERE BROTHER KI DULHAN oscillates between mundane to sad after showing an initial spark of brilliance. So much time wasted in the ‘I love you’ nonsense that in the last scene, you feel sorry for the dads of the boy and girl. Continuous references to old YRF films too don’t add value. In fact, it is like making mockery out of an already juvenile scene.
Komal Nahta (KoiMoi.com) 3/5
Mere Brother Ki Dulhan has reasonable entertainment value, very good music, exciting song picturisations which will all result in a good run at the box-office.
Nikhat Kazmi (The Times of India) 3/5
It is the verve factor which works admirably for the film which doesn’t have much to boast about in the story department. The film tries to remain high spirited throughout, both in terms of the narrative and the performances and mostly succeeds in keeping the smiles coming. All in all, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan holds out a promise for a pleasant weekend viewing.
Kaveree Bamzai (India Today) 2.5/5
A large part of the film is a spoof–from Dabangg to My Name Is Khan. Some of it also an ode–from Padosan to Mughal e Azam. Some of it works, a lot of it doesn’t.
Aniruddha Guha (DNA India) 1/5
The brief must have been clear: ‘Don’t use your brains, just do what we’ve been doing for years now. It worked the last time; it’ll probably work again. If not, we’ll try again the next time.’
Shubhra Gupta (Indian Express) 2/5
‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ is a strictly-by-the-template rom com. Not any old rom com, but a Yashraj one. Cue clean-cut hero. Smashing heroine. Good-looking second lead who nearly steals the show. we almost miss the fact that Imran and Katrina are a fresh Bollywood pair : the new boy prize is taken away by Ali Zafar, who is the best thing about ‘My Brother Ki Dulhan’.
Rahul Gangwani (Filmfare) 2/5
It’s time Yash Raj Films pulls up its socks and harnesses better scripts and gives us more Band Baaja Baaraat. This is a wedding you won’t be jumping through hoops.
Sonia Chopra (Sify Movies) 2.5/5
Mere Brother Ki Dulhan has the sparking performances, the interesting pairing, and a few fun moments. But it’s essentially an assembly-line, rom-com product. Recommended for fans of this genre, who’ll be generous enough to forgive the film’s downsides.
