Rating: 3 / 5
As soon as you see Dharma productions and these type of stars, there’s a mindset created for the whole story line. Despite being on those same lines, this movie has its own charm in many ways. Right from the start, it creates an aura that’s not new but lays its own significance. It has nice dialogue writing that flavors all types of moments in the film. It has usual family fights, still it provides a very light-hearted cinematography. Even after summing up all the points, ‘Kapoor & Sons’ is definitely forgettable. Nevertheless, it’s a real good time pass. It has nothing special, but something is really special.
Shakun Batra really has something when it comes to direction. Similar to the feel that his films provide, you’ll not know that what you’ve liked, but you really enjoy. His direction is like a fuel that can lighten any dull thing. Even a family jhagda was directed in a very interesting way. I hope he gets a good script someday and his talent is rated well.
Unsurprisingly, a certain star of the show was Rishi Kapoor. His complete indulgence in the character is just marvellous. A nearly perfect old man role stuffed with all ingredients in the right amount. All other actors have done a very good job. Each one has done full justice to their respective roles.
Overall, a movie that has nothing special, but something is really special.
