Let me first state that I had no expectations from this film.  I was sure it would be another boring romantic comedy with mediocre performances

But I was proven wrong on all counts.  I was pleasantly surprised.

Honestly, I haven't had this much fun watching a romantic comedy since Jab We Met, although Bodyguard stole my heart too! Simple, sweet, realistic, and refreshing, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan(MBKD) is definitely worth a watch.

The story is revealed in the title itself.  Luv(ALiz Zafar)  and Kush(Imran Khan)(haha) are brothers who love each other unconditionally! Hence,  it's not surprising when Luv, who just broke up with his girlfriend of five years, requests Kush to find a bride for him.  In his words, "Jo Tumhe Pasand Hai, Wo Mujhe Bhi Pasand Hai." Unfortunately, Kush ko dulhan'bahut zyada pasand hai."  To translate, Luv starts liking his brother's bride(Dimple, played by Katrina) way too much. He loves her, and, SURPRISE, she loves him back.  The remaining story is about how Kush and DImple come up with various schemes to break Luv-Dimple's engagement, and get married.

What sets MBKD apart from the other mundane romantic comedies is the handling and execution of this triangular love story.  For starters, there is NO MELODRAMA, which is refreshing.   The entire situation is treated very humorously.  Further, Katrina character is very interesting.  She is a maverick who enjoys her life, while Kush is the more stable, rational guy.  On the surface, Luv and Dimple seem like a match made in heaven, but love is always blind!

Aside from the script and direction, the performances propel this film into the'repeat watch' category.  Ali Zafar, as the befuddled Luv, looks handsome and performs naturally.  Imran, as the level-headed guy in love with his brother's bride, has mastered acting in romantic comedies, and does very well here too (Sidenote:  Imran, you need to become a more versatile actor though).

BUT it is Katrina Kaif who totally steals the show.  Anyone who claims that she is a bimbo with no talent needs to watch this film. The last time she impressed me was in Namastey London, but she totally nails her character in MBKD. Kat has an excellent comic timing, and, of course, looks as gorgeous as ever.  (Note:   I am not a fan of Kat, but "well done, girl!").  I am a huge fan of Kareena Kapoor, but Katrina comes very close to replicating Bebo's stupendous performance as Geet in JWM!

The music is worth mentioning too, with my favorites being Dhudki Lage and Madhubala.  The title track is extremely cheesy though!

Overall, do watch this film.  It is worth it.

Rating:  7/10
