Director Onir has once again come up with a novel script, following his last 2 films – “MY BROTHER NIKHIL” & “BAS EK PAL”.

Sorry Bhai is also the comeback film of Chitrangda Singh, who had made waves in her 1st innings with Hazaaro Khwaaishen Aisi.

Film is about 3 characters - Sharman Joshi & Sanjay Suri playing Brothers and Chitrangda, their love interest. Shabana Azmi & Boman Irani enacts the role of parents of Sharman & Suri.

Story goes like this – Sharman Joshi a young Scientist has gone to Mauritius with his mother Shabana for the wedding of his elder brother Sanjay Suri. Mother is bit annoyed with Sanjay, since he is marrying against their wish.

Sanjay, a busy person, can’t spend much time with them and hence it is up to his fiancée Chitrangda to move around with Sharman and Shabana to show them the beautiful Mauritius. Mother is also not happy with Chitrangda, because of her annoyance with Sanjay Suri. Hence, it leads to Sharman & Chitrangda spending more time together and becoming closer gradually. When Sharman see the sparks flying, he is bit reluctant to go move ahead with Chitrangda, but she is madly attracted towards him.

When everybody comes to know about this, all are shocked and …….Rest you have to go and watch the movie.

Although the concept is a bit new, but it is still a bit bold for Indian audience especially for the orthodox Indian family. However, today’s youth may identify with the film and may like the film.

As regards to acting, it is Sharman Joshi, who looks cute and charming, once again stands apart with his smooth sailing natural performance. Especially the chemistry between him Chitrangda is just superb. Chitrangda, as usual who has proved herself with her earlier performances is natural and matches step by step to a seasoned performer like Shabana, who once again has given a remarkable performance. Boman, also cake walks his role and his sequences with Shabana are beautiful. Sanjay is good, but wish his role was more defining.

Cinematography is excellent capturing the locales and beaches of Mauritius. Music is OK.

Overall, film is interesting in pieces, specially the build up of love between Sharman & Chitrangda and conflict between Shabana & Chitrangda. Again the target audience is MULTIPLEX crowd & YOUTH and not the common public, which makes the film a hit in the country. Hence, it may not hit the Boz Office eye, but will recover the finances put into it.

On the whole, I will give 2 STAR to the film.
