‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ - a twisted tale of love (IANS Preview)September 7th, 2011 - 5:40 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Sep 7 (IANS) After receiving a positive response for his role in the adult comedy “Delhi Belly”, actor Imran Khan returns to charm with his chocolate boy look in “Mere Brother Ki Dulhan”, a light-hearted and twisted tale of love that releases Friday.
Produced by Aditya Chopra under Yash Raj Films, directed and written by debutant Ali Abbas Zafar, the film also stars Katrina Kaif and Pakistani singer-actor Ali Zafar in the lead roles.
Set in the milieu of an urban middle class family, the quirky comedy deals with two brothers - Luv Agnihotri (Ali Zafar) and Kush Agnihotri (Imran Khan). While Kush works as an assistant director in the film industry, his elder brother Luv works as an investment banker in London. A casanova by heart, Luv realises he wants to get married and settle down with an Indian girl.
So Kush is given the task of bride hunting for his brother and during this quest, he encounters some wacky and funny situations. Finally, he meets Dimple Dixit (Katrina), who likes to lead a life with no boundaries. She is also from London, but is a true Indian at heart.
Dimple is the craziest girl Kush has ever met. So, while everything is finalised and preparations are in full swing, Kush realises he has fallen in love with his brother’s ‘dulhan’. Then follows a string of comical and unpredictable events that promise to leave audiences in splits.
One would never believe that matrimonial advertisements can inspire anyone and become a medium to entertain, but in case of “Mere Brother Ki Dulhan”, the director took a cue from matrimonial ads and wove his story around it.
Apart from this, Ali Abbas Zafar has also been inspired by Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s “Chupke Chupke” and “Gol Maal” while giving shaping up the movie. The film has been shot in Agra, Delhi, Chandigarh, Dehradun and Mumbai.
“Mere Brother Ki Dulhan” is the second Bollywood film of Ali Zafar, who had made his debut in Abhishek Sharma’s “Tere Bin Laden”, where he had played the Al Qaeda leader and received accolades for his role.
Both Imran and Katrina are currently on cloud nine after the success of their films “Delhi Belly” and “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” respectively.
This is the first time the two are paired together and their
on-screen chemistry looks equally impeccable.
Sohail Sen, who has previously composed music for “What’s Your Raashee?”, has penned the music of the film. Not just this, Ali Zafar too has lent his voice to a song “Madhubala”, which has become quite a rage.
The film also has John Abraham in a friendly appearance.
