“Sorry Bhai” is a new movie directed by Onir. Onir is a director who made movies like ‘My Brother Nikhil’ and ‘Bas Ek Pal’. Onir always comes up with distinctive and very complex emotional subject. This time also keeping up with his own trend Onir come up with another distinctive, complex and hard to digest subject for Indian audience. But because it is hard to digest and shocking it seems interesting. Onir chose this time story of a guy who falls in love with his brother’s to be wife. The plot promise too much but movie could not fulfill those promises.
For me movie didn’t click, as I said earlier there was so much scope for director to explore the complexity of the situation but which he totally failed to achieve. After movie end I was wondering why the hell character played by Chitrangada start liking and loving Shrman’s character. You could never see any romance developing in between them not even any sexual intimacy. It is failure of their chemistry as well as screenplay. It was clearly justified when the girl didn’t want to marry Sanjay Suri’s character. As he is just after money and ditches her every time, he even postpones his wedding day for his work. So it was understandable that she didn’t want to marry him. But why she select his brother was not clear. It looked like because she wanted to run away from Sanjay’s character she took immediate possible option. It was like anyone but him.
The movie could have been a boring drag if Boman Irani wasn’t present in the movie. His presence made the film enduring. He was coming after every scene otherwise I had to walk out of theatre even before interval. Boman is in his usual best jovial performance. His pairing with Shabana azami will surely be there in many coming movies. Both seasoned actors compliments each other really well.
Sharman Joshi did well but this is not his best work or not anywhere closer to it. Sanjay Suri gave as usual competent performance, without any flaws. Chitrangada Singh did her comeback after 2-3 years. Lot of people say she looks lot like Smita Patil. She might look like her but in acting department she is nowhere close to the legend. She has lot of things to work on.
As for Onir only thing I can…………….
