Sorry Bhai

Well, it's changing phase of Bollywood where you've bold themes spelled with an ease on the screens. Perhaps, the sheer motif may not cater to all centres but it's worth deserving good appreciations with trendsetting endeavors. Precisely it's a great show of such films as they make high waves sans superstars or big teams on the crew-lists. If you need an illustration, it goes with this week's releases; Oye Lucky, Lucky Oye, The President is coming. Of course, Sorry Bhai isn't an elision that grabbed our senses right with its stunning promos. Aye! In-laws and bridegroom's brothers falling in love with girl were often spotted in World cinemas. Looks like Onir is vividly influenced by these flicks and of course realisms are blobbed here 'n' there.

What speaks louder in Sorry Bhai? Not just a storming idea of Onir; it's a laudable performance by entire casts. Ennoble their performance with best words beyond 'Awesome' for they are merely naturalistic. Amongst all of Shabana and Boman, Chitrangada Singh steals the show with an enhanced performance than in her impressive debut 'Hazaron Khwashishen Aisi'.

Siddharth Mathur (Sharman Joshi), a shy young scientist, travels to Mauritius for his elder brother (Sanjay Suri) Harsh's wedding. Accompanying him is his Ma, a reluctant traveler since she is angry at Harsh for deciding to get married without consulting them. Also travelling is Siddharth's cheery father, whose sole entertainment is pulling Ma's leg.

Harsh, pre-occupied with work, can spend little time with his family and it is left to his fiancée Aaliyah to show them around Mauritius before the wedding. However, Ma's anger at Harsh ensures that she takes an instant dislike for Aaliyah, and it is Aaliyah and Siddharth who end up spending loads of time together. This, added to the fact that Aaliyah feels neglected by the career-obsessed Harsh, leads to them being irresistibly drawn to each other. A horrified Siddharth battles this attraction desperately, but Aaliyah has fallen madly in love and pursues him with single-minded determination. When Siddharth's defenses start crumbling and Ma starts getting suspicious, all hell breaks loose in the Mathur family...The movie is a fun romantic comedy with lots of moments that will make you cry and smile at the same time.

An interesting drama inter-woven with good characterizations let's fall on lines above average. And then what makes its incomplete is the screenplay turning sluggish at certain levels. As mentioned earlier, the bold them may not be a ducky one for all audiences. It's quite hard to be consented, say in towns and villages….

Onir spells certain sequences that are undoubtedly top-notched. Perhaps, the gradual attraction blossoming between Sharman and Chitrangada is grabby-to-your-attentions. On the pars, an ingoing tiff over Shabana and Chitrangada leaves an impact of latent hostility established on characterizations.

Grand round of applause for Sharman Joshi! It's been a commendable show on his part. Call it as his best performance ever on screen. With her naturalistic approach and alluring looks, Chitrangada steals the show. Fine! The biggies Shabana Hasmi and Boman Hirani swing with perfect chemistry on the screen. It's something more laudable than their previous venture together in 'Honeymoon Travels'. Though posed on a powerful role, Sanjay Suri gets out from the competency with amongst star-casts.


On technical aspects, Sachin Vijay's enchanting shots of Mauritius are visual treats while musical score by Gaurav Dayal and Vivek Philip are off mediocre.

On the whole, Sorry Bhai picks good response amongst elite group audiences of multiplexes in cosmopolitan cities. Doubtless, it would be merely contrastive scenarios in other centres for they would feel something 'demoralized values' from their perspective…

Verdict: Watch it for Onir's bold attempt
