CAST & CREW
Sorry Bhai is a Bollywood film starring Sharman Joshi, Sanjay Suri, Shabana Azmi, Chitrangada Singh and Boman Irani directed by Onir who breaks stereotypes, released on 28 November 2008. Chitrangada Singh after her debut in Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi in 2003 rose to fame and after few films quit the film industry all of a sudden. After a long break, Sorry Bhai! is a comeback movie of her career. She is back with a bang.
Sharman Joshi stars as scientist Siddharth Mathur, who is travelling to Mauritius with his parents (Shabana Azmi and Boman Irani) for the wedding of his older brother, Harsh (Sanjay Suri). With workaholic Harsh too busy to spend time with his family, Siddharth finds himself tagging along with his brother's beautiful fiancée, Aaliyah (Chitrangada Singh), leading to an unexpected love triangle and some serious sibling rivalry Analysis:
The unbelievable part of the story is that the reasons for Aaliyah falling for Siddharth in four days flat are not entirely justified. He is everything Harsh is not. He says `ui ma? while tripping, loves jazz, making sand-castles with kids, and the simple life. She is without agenda, studying, but ready to give it up for marriage. The only thing that they share in common is their love for the film Casablanca, and their joy at sliding down staircase railings. Agreed their temperaments match; but in a real setting, no one would break up a wedding over a few-days-old infatuation.
Star Performance: Sharman Joshi is just awesome as the unsure guy who is torn-between-two ideologies. Chitrangadha Singh looks ravishing and convinces us that she's one confused woman. Boman Irani as the daddy cool, and Shabana Azmi as the mom wanting to fit in with the new generation, are used more as comic relief. But they fill the screen with life even when they are taunting or angry. The chemistry this cute, oldie couple shares makes you want to be like them, when you are older.
What’s There ?
1. Technically, the film is decent with good cinematography, styling and music.
What’s Not There?
1. The main flaw of the story is that the reasons for Aaliyah falling for Siddharth in four days flat are not entirely justified
Cheating in a relationship, mature family matters and enhanced concept of relatively modern relationships. The movie is a treat to watch for the unusual storyline, climax, and study of interesting characters.
