Brothers Movie Review

Rating: 2.50/5

Critic Rating: (2.50/5)

It is

The KV zone. Technically, many notches above the regular masala film, story being told, as audacious as the rest.

Plot

Akhil and Vimal are conjoined twins born to the couple of an audacious genetic engineer (played by Sachin Khedekar) and a lady who wouldn’t let the doctors dis-join them. They basically have only one heart and dis-joining would kill one.

So the conjoined brothers grow up to the montage of his dad loosing his job in the USSR, not finding money for his research and eventually becoming a super successful businessman with his product Energion, an energy drink for kids.

The twins meet a translator (Anjali played by Kajal Agarwal) at one of their company parties and Vimal instantly strikes a chord with her. Vimal being the sensitive one, Akhil’s the crude, street smart fellow (like all films involving twins, even when they are conjoined dude?)

What’s with Energion’s secret ingredient that’s so dangerous and why is a Russian journalist out to unearth the secret?

Visual effects

The conjoined Suryas were a very convincing visual effects feat and the visual quality of KV’s films even otherwise is commendable. It would be great though if technicians like him at least try alternative ways of editing, the super fast restless cuts are such a bore.

Dubbed to ruins

It had happened to one of his films before (Ayan dubbed as Veedokkade) and it’ll keep happening in all probability. The dubbing into Telugu is half baked, the songs in particular (which is what, close to 30 minutes) is just you wondering what gibberish are they mistiming their lips to.

Actors

It is Surya adding to the visual effects that convinces. But, with a dialogue that doesn’t hold interest and dubbed on top of that, demeans the performance.

Sachin Khedekar plays a strained man through out, strained and angry. He holds the baddy end well.

Verdict

Fifteen, twenty minutes less would have helped. One watch shouldn’t hurt.
