Sorry Bhai : Movie Review



Making a movie on a subject with incestuous connotations, even though slight, is always a tricky job. One might end up putting the audiences off.

But, expectedly, Onir displays sensitivity in walking the thin line and telling his story as a tale of relationships between different characters rather than a plain tale of forbidden love.

That’s what makes Sorry Bhai worth a watch. It’s about the complexities of relationships. Not the kind of complexities one sees splashed out dramatically in usual Bollywood melodramas. But the kind that one normally sees in life. That subtle tug or snap in relationships when people are drawn towards or pulled away from each other. That gradual mushrooming of an emotion towards another person. These very moments captured with a telling effect provide the soul to ‘Sorry Bhai’ even though the film gets a little too tangled in the second half.

Charau Taraf Nasha Hi Nasha Hai
Lagta Hai Har Taraf Tu Hi Tu Khada Hai
Muhabbat Me Teri Hum Khogaye Hai
Dur Najane Tum Se Hum Kyu Ho Gaye Hai
