Mere Brother Ki Dulhan - Preview

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

Mere Brother Ki Dulhan is a fun but an unengaging romantic comedy. A lto of the dialogues are enjoyable but the overall story has nothing endearing about it, neither is it a story that keeps me glued to know what happens next. But Katrina Kaif shines and how!

Mere Brother Ki Dulhan - The title pretty much gives it away. And what's left is given away by the trailer.

So, we are promised a quick recap of What's your rashee? with a hint of the story from Sorry Bhai. The hope is that the sum of the parts will be greater than the individual parts. Or at the very least, we can look forward to some fresh fun along the way.

I didn't think I'd ever say this but I'm actually not feeling so bad about seeing Imran Khan (after Delhi Belly) and Katrina Kaif (after Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara). Both had some awesome comic timing going in their films and that's exactly what they need for what looks like a predictable love-triangular rom-com.

It's safe to assume that the basic plot will be predictable, right? After all, the banner producing it is Yash Raj Films. The probability of me enjoying one of their products is 50-50, but we can almost always tell how a film coming out of their house is going to end.

I'm surprised that despite the candy-floss flavor that the trailer carries I'm still neutral about how I might enjoy the film. Maybe because I remember how unenthused I felt after watching Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara's trailer and yet I loved the film. Here's an attempt at hoping that the book will be better than the cover - especially the artwork of the title of the film.
