The Up Side

Brothers has shown the relationship of two humans and their emotions . Showing that even if they hate each other , they cannot turn up hurting each other because they are brothers . The movie is not really same to Warriors , it seems that films director Karan Malhotra just loss his track while making the remake. Few of the songs like “Mera naam Mary ” starred by Kareena Kapoor turned up to be 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 films 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 .

Verdict: 3/5
