While I went to watch Dostana last week, I was attracted to the poster of the next release, Sorry Bhai. It was not the sensuous Chitrangda Singh that drew my attention, but the punch line that reads “Come, fall in love with your brother’s bride”. It is, indeed, a bold first-of-its-kind punch line, which may lead us to think in all weird ways. So, I made up my mind to watch it.
My plans to watch the movie went for a toss when I learnt that the Delhi High Court has put a stay on the release of the film till Dec 8 following a complaint by singer Rabbi Shergill. According to his complaint, one of the film’s songs is a copy of a composition from his album “Avengi Ja Nahi”. However, I was relieved when I came to know that the stay has been lifted subject to the deletion of the controversial song and the music related to the song from the film. Thankfully, the movie has been released this Friday as per its schedule.
I have been able to watch Sorry Bhai on Friday only. Directed by Onir, it is a fantastic fun romantic comedy. The movie has wonderfully portrayed the attraction of a man towards his own brother’s to be bride (played by Chitraganda Singh), and how hard he tries to come out of it. The movie is not about any kind of extra marital affairs or betrayal in relationships. It is more about an innocent love, which finds it difficult seek acceptance due to societal pressures.
Sanjay Suri and Sharman Joshi have been excellent as brothers, while Bomam Irani and Shabana Azmi once again proved their mettle in a fun romantic comedy. It was an absolute delight to watch gorgeous Chitrangda Singh after her impressive debut act in Hazaron Khwahishen Aisi. All these years, she was busy travelling with her golfer husband Jyoti Randhwa, and has finally come back with a bang. Playing the female lead in Sorry Bhai, she has been reported to be at the heights of her ecstasy for being able to work with Shabana Azmi. In fact, the entire star cast has complemented one another greatly, making it a must watch movie.
