‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ is a musical romantic comedy set amongst upper middle class families in North India. A topsy-turvy story which takes you on a fun-filled ride of humor and romance, where Imran falls in love with his brother's ‘dulhan’ ! The story may sound absurd but it has been handled in the most light hearted way and you actually don’t mind. The writing by Abbas Ali Zafar is contemporary and his take on relations pretty urban and modern. The screenplay is free flowing in the first half with plenty of light moments but the second half tends to drag after a point. Dialogues are the best part of the enterprise with its tongue-in-cheek lines and some really funny situations.

First time director Abbas Ali Zafar has spunk and shows a lot of promise in his debut venture. Not only is his writing tight but his direction too is skilled. He is one director to watch out for !.

Imran Khan lives up his role with full sincerity and gives a credible performance. Katrina Kaif looks like a million bucks (like always!) and gives a good account of her acting but in some scenes she does go over the top. Ali Zafar is cute and although he does not boast of a lengthy role, he impresses in whatever he does.

Tara D’souza is good in a brief role. Parikshit Sahani & Kanwaljeet lend able support.


Music by Sohail Sen is foot tapping and of hit variety. Lyrics by Irshad Kamil are well worded. Cinematography by Sudeep Chatterjee is eye filling. Sound by Debasish Mishra fits the bill. Dance by Bosco-Caesar is well choreographed. Editing by Ritesh Soni is not up to the mark with the film seemingly too lengthy in the proceedings. Costumes by Rocky S, Neha Bhatnagar & Harmeet Sethi are colorful and appealing.

To sum it up, ‘Mere Brother is Dulhan’ is an enjoyable ride which is worth taking once!
