Movie Review – Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan: Outdated age old formula tests your patience
Rating: 1.5 Stars
Salman Khan and Pooja Hegde starrer Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan film is another disappointment of the year. With its outdated storyline and typical age old formula, it tests your patience. Only good thing about this film is not Salman Khan for a change but it’s Pooja Hegde. She has got a lengthy screen time which is a rarity in Salman Khan movies. She looks gorgeous and has acted very well in the 1st half but loses her charm in the 2nd half. Also a small clipping of Maine Pyaar Kiya film during Bhagyashree’s cameo makes you feel nostalgic.
The film starts in a typical Salman Khan style of film. Everything is loud and logicless. But Salman fans have liked these types of movies over the years. But this film will disappoint even a die-hard fan of Salman. It lacks entertainment. It’s neither funny nor a serious film.
In the movie, the only aim of 3 younger brothers of Salman is to find a suitable girl for him. There is also no sight of police in Bhaijaan’s crazy world. The fight sequences start with a bang but then become comedy.
In the 2nd half, the film shifts to South India but it never takes off. In fact, it becomes monotonous and boring after a point.
Songs though are above average they act as a speed breaker in the film as they come every now and then.
Salman Khan starts off well but then looks totally disinterested in this outdated family drama. He looks weird in the first half with Veer film-like long hair wig. Some of the character artists have done a good job but some are horrible.
Very poor direction by Farhad Samji though this film is a remake of the 2014 Tamil film ‘Veeram’. This film is not even a once-watch film for those who have not watched the original film like me.
Cinematography Is good, especially the metro train & climax fight sequences. Choreography is pathetic. The entire audience started laughing seeing Salman’s dance moves in a romantic song. The climax starts off with a bang but it turns out to be comedy later.
Due to Eid holidays the film might do reasonable business in the first weekend. But after that it’s a herculean task due to poor content and screenplay.
Nah Kisi Ka Bhai Nah Kisi Ki Jaan.
