Do you think I’m a bitch, a tart?….You must be thinking I’m a slut?
– Katrina Kaif’s character Dimple Dixit to Imran Khan’s Kush Agnihotri in Meri Brother Ki Dulhan
Does the Sun Rise in the East? Is Barack Obama Black? Is Manmohan Singh a poodle? Does Salman Khan like to drive over people? Did Anna Hazare just score a big victory over the Lok Pal bill?
Whaddayathink, folks? 😉
Folks, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan (from Yash Raj’s stinking Augean stable of horror-shows) offers incontrovertible proof, as if any more were really needed, that Hindi movies are made by desi asses exclusively for desi chimps slipping down the ladder of evolution.
An utterly charmless and silly movie featuring two half-wits Katrina Kaif and Imran Khan, the movie bored the hell out of us for all of its 2-hour and 20-minute running time.
In fact, Meri Brother Ki Dulhan can best be described by borrowing a line from the movie itself:
You Indians are classless and cheap.
– Piyali to Luv in the opening moments of the film
Cancel Katrina’s Indian Visa
Can somebody please tell Katrina Kaif that shrieking like a sloshed ape, flaunting her bare thighs like a Dadar strumpet struggling to pay her back rent, rolling her eyes mindlessly and generally behaving like a jackass does not qualify one to be called an actress.
Not in the Method School of acting, not in the Sanford Meisner School of acting, hell, not even in Subash Ghai’s Whistling Woods School of acting in Mumbai.
After breaking up with his long-term NRI girlfriend Piyali Patel (the hopeless Tara D’Souza), London-based executive Luv Agnihotri (Pakistani actor Ali Zafar) calls up his brother Kush (Imran Khan) in India and asks him to find him a bride. Since the brothers’ tastes run along similar lines, Luv assures Kush that he’s confident his younger brother will find him the right girl.
The rest of this silly movie plods through how Kush indeed finds the right girl Dimple (Katrina Kaif), then falls in love with her and ultimately marries her while Luv aka Bhaisaab ties the knot with his erstwhile girlfriend Piyali.
If you think the movie is rubbish based on the above two paragraphs, what happens between the two paragraphs, i.e. between Luv’s phone call to Kush at the beginning and the two marriages at the end, is a mindless, tiresome yawn interrupted every now and then with a stupid, wobbly scooter ride or a torturous song and a dance.
The sloppily written, poorly enacted romcom yields little joy as it hopscotches from one silly scene to another toward a happy ending, which for the bored viewer means rushing from the theater to the nearest bar to seek relief in the welcoming bathycolpian bosom of the pretty bartender and Bacchus.
The Marquis de Sade behind this satanic piece of boring shit aka Mere Brother Ki Dulhan is a three-name twit called Ali Abbas Zafar, who takes (dis)credit for the four traumas of story, screenplay, dialog and direction.
If you’re tempted to seek solace in music or dance, be warned there’s none. Clumsy grotesquerie at best with Katrina moving her legs as if she has you-know-what-cramps.
With his limited acting skills, Imran Khan does nothing to distinguish himself.
One of the rare tolerable elements of this tripe is the Pakistani actor Ali Zafar, who plays older brother Luv. While Ali Zafar is no Al Pacino or Robert Redford, he at least shows some sparks of acting talent, which is more than can be said of his dimwit co-stars.
SearchIndia.com has long recommended to Yash Chopra that he quit the movie business and settle down to selling Jalebis in Agra. But as with most humans, good advice falls on deaf ears in this instance too and the duffer continues to unleash his Bollywood crap on desis.
Folks, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan is sophomoric junk that’s just not worth your time or money. Hesitate not to raise your middle finger to these bozos.
The actors & the story writers in Hindi don’t have even the slightest respect for the audience!!
& partly it is the audience’s fault as well..
they are ready to lap up any crap that they are served by these lazy bozos..
If I tell my opinion to our friends that Salman Khan’s Wanted or Bodyguard is unwatchable, they tell that my taste is the worst in the entire world, i don’t have brains & i am a blithering idiot as i can’t appreciate Salman Khan’s acting!!
What else can be done??

Look for an Exit Visa. 😉
I cannot disagree more. It could infact go into the X Files into the list of unsolved mysteries as to how Salman is as famous as he is.(He could be an alien/XMan type with a capability of mass hypnosis on a certain human species of Indian genes. trust me, it’s not the saturday booze !! 😉

Must be the Sunday booze.
I meant I cannot agree more.. yep its the saturday booze !! damn
Now here everybody are vying for Ra-One featuring SRK who has lost his acting skills recently & that non-actress Kareena Kapoor (Trisha of Hindi movies) to release!! 😀
With all those Subramanium (we counted three), Iyer and Nayar characters, Ra.one seems like Enthiran redux. 🙁
oh my god!!
if it is so, then Ra-one should run for 200 days in India because it would be a super-shit movie!!
Rajinikanth is wayyy better than SRK in these type of roles despite his age!! 😉
SRK had that Don movie beaten to death & it seems its now Ra-One’s turn although its too early to make any predictions!! 🙂
Off Topic :
have you seen that movie Duel of 1971 which was Steven Spielberg’s 1st shot at film direction??
how did you find that?? 🙂
Yes, seen it in the VCR days of the 80s.
Still remember a few scenes – the stop at the rest-area restaurant, the final, dusty scene when the huge truck falls down the cliff etc.
yes. amazing movie..
I have never even thought of such a beautiful movie being directed by any of our directors here..
Can you please post a review of it if possible??
If our memory serves us right, they never show the face of the killer.
Yes.. The driver of that monster truck is never shown 🙂
That last scene where the truck falls off the cliff was very well shot!!
Guess what, 40 years have passed since that movie was made & yet our Bollywood & Kollywood bozos can’t show us a decent stunt or fight scene!! 😉
Now isn’t that a mighty shame????
Quote from Daily News and Analysis review of Mere Brother ki Dulhan
“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.’
Indian movie industry is truly a Democracy – Of the Idiots, by the Idiots, For the Idiots. 🙁
I hope you guys continue to watch bad movies, your insults are just to die for….LOL!!!!!!!!
Did you watch Sonam Kapoor-ji in the new Bollywood flick Mausam? What do you think of her?
We think she’s the new Messiah! 😉
She’s def hot though…a real refresher to the industry
But nope haven’t caught it, am going to catch Fright Night this weekend
What’s your latest house playlist currently? I’m hooked on Afrojack’s Take Over Control…infectious!!
latestcurrent playlist? L’homme du train, Faccia A Faccia, Badan pe sitare, Discombobulate, Diwane Ke Naam tho, Kandathai Sollugiren.
As for Take Over Control, we just listened to it. The lyrics might be different but the music has a deja vu sound to it.
