Critic Reviews Kapoor & Sons

  • Gulf News | Review By -Manjusha Radhakrishnan Rating-7/10
Director Shakun Bhatra’s Kapoor & Sons, a story about two brothers who return home to the picturesque Coonoor, a hill station in Tamil Nadu, to visit their ailing grandfather, is a touching film made terrific by some great performances.

  • Times Of India | Review By -Srijana Mitra Das Rating-8/10
Kapoor & Sons' star is its story. This is an entirely real family, full of uncomfortable secrets, awkward jealousies and sharp pain, where brothers steal, parents cheat, siblings suspect and 'perfect bachchas' don't have perfect love-lives. This is a family with its make-up off, screaming through hilarious situations - a sequence involving a plumber is side-splittingly good.

  • Rediff | Review By -Raja Sen Rating-6/10
Yet the shifting of gears is clunky and the narrative pace is all awry. I wanted to care, and did care -- especially when Rajat Kapoor tried to righteously justify himself while happening to wear a fuchsia boa, say, or when the hand under Alia Bhatt’s chin shook feverishly

  • Mid Day | Review By -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-8/10
Dialogues (by Shakun Batra and Ayesha DeVitre), peppered with lot of easy wit, adds to the charm of this delightful film. The story, however, falters a wee bit as the central conflict between the two brothers is not convincing and doesn't really hit close to home.

  • Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-4/10
This turns the characters into stock, and the film into a constructed thing, and you know what’s coming much before it actually does. Which is a pity because a film like this one, with a nice sense of place (the house has a lived-in feel ; the hill town used as home

  • Rediff | Review By -Sukanya Verma Rating-7/10
It’s a remarkably active screenplay; there must have been pages and pages, filled with a constant flurry of breathing, breathless folk -- angry at one another, angry with themselves. That jittery feeling of playing a mute spectator to a loud, ugly quarrel is how authentic the fight sequences in Kapoor & Sons get. On occasions, things get so out of hand

  • Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-7/10
Shakun Batra and Ayesha Devitre’s writing came as a breath of fresh air concentrating on a dysfunctional family but with such brilliantly written flawed characters that you relate to each of them. What works for this script is the way it flows, the connectivity of scenes, character nuances and spot on dialogues.

  • Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Suparna Sharma Rating-7/10
The scenes and dialogue are deviously dark and funny — like the scene with the plumber, references to filmy characters recent and past — and the camera is like a dizzy guest, wanting to recoil in disgust, but unable to look away. My one grouse is that Gupta hasn’t got over his crush on gori-chitti Punjabi girls. Earlier Kareena Kapoor, and now Alia Bhatt.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Rohit Vats Rating-8/10
The screenplay keeps gaining momentum. There are times when Batra eases out pressure, but only to keep the safety valve from blowing up. When you meet Rishi Kapoor’s character, you immediately realise his love for theatrics, but you also see a method in his madness.

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-7/10
Kapoor And Sons is intense and incisive in its observation of human inadequacies but is always entertaining. Cinematic sagas about dysfunctional families usually tend to fall into the trap of predictability. Kapoor And Sons doesn't. It keeps springing little surprises all the way through, so much so that at times it is hard to believe that this has emerged

  • News 18 | Review By -Sameeksha Dandriyal Rating-6/10
This feel-good movie remains with you long after you vacate your theatre seat and compels you to take a trip down the memory road of that 'perfect family' get together that you had attended years back but now avoid.

  • India Today | Review By -Ananya Bhattacharya Rating-7/10
The music is soothing. Ladki Beautiful, of course, is already the party anthem of the year. Among the other tracks, Bolna is a memorable one. In all, watch Kapoor And Sons for everything. And if you happen to have a crush on Fawad Khan, watch it for him.
