A great family movie questioning and answering the essential values to make your family the ideal one
19 March 2016 | by (Oman) – See all my reviews

It is so natural to find another family more perfect than yours. And am sure at some point or another we all have wished if we could one chance to peep into someone else's perfect world or be a part of it. Kapoor & Sons gives you that opportunity.

Shot at a beautiful place, Conoor,showcasing a house which am sure will be envied by many. 2016 till now has seen many good movies. This is a bit different because of its plot.

And maybe because of its simple execution yet complex reasonings. For one, it actually felt that I was not watching a movie but merely peeping into the lives of Kapoor & Sons. Such was the portrayal by all.

Fantastic job by the Director Shakun Batra. And a fantastic job by the Editor Shivkumar V. Panicker. And nothing would have started had it not been for the story. Credit going out to Shakun and Ayesha DeVitre. Stars like Alia Bhatt, Siddharth Malhotra, Fawad Khan…. All did exceptionally well in the part they were to play. And the binding factor, Kapoor Sahab, so effortlessly performed by Rishi Kapoor. Superb!

The film takes you across the realm of wishes to reality, to realization and beyond. Raising and answering questions, which today's times have made us ignore, or maybe we have chosen to ignore. It's a nice family package which endeavors to identify the thin sensitive line which binds the family in strong bonds.

Definitely a movie to be seen. And don't bother to screen. Take all generations with you. You never know. Together you might get the path to make your family, the perfect one.

My rating 4.25/5
