Plot[edit]

Estranged brothers Rahul (Fawad Khan) and Arjun Kapoor (Sidharth Malhotra) are compelled to return to their childhood home in Coonoor when their 90-year-old grandfather Amarjeet (Rishi Kapoor) suffers a heart attack. Rahul is a successful writer who appears to be the most mature in the family. Meanwhile, Arjun struggles to get his books published, resorting to working part-time as a bartender to make ends meet, while writing in his spare time. Their parents, Harsh (Rajat Kapoor) and Sunita Kapoor (Ratna Pathak Shah) favour Rahul for being successful, which upsets Arjun. While the brothers struggle to get along, their parents grapple with their troubled marriage. Harsh is discouraging of Sunita's wish to open a catering business and Harsh's past extra-marital affair is a sore spot in their relationship. Amarjeet reveals that his last wish is to take a family photo titled "Kapoor & Sons, since 1921".

At a party, Arjun meets Tia Malik (Alia Bhatt), and the two hit it off. Rahul and Tia also meet, and the two go out for dinner. However, Rahul is shocked when she spontaneously kisses him. Tia reveals to Arjun that she lost her parents at the age of thirteen and lives alone. Arjun too reveals that Rahul's bestselling novel's idea was similar to his but he never confronted his brother so as to not break the family apart. Tia tells her friend that she loves Arjun but regrets involving herself with Rahul.

The Kapoor family throws a party to celebrate Amarjeet's birthday. Arjun discovers that Tia and Rahul know each other and fears that Rahul and Tia have something between them, but Rahul clarifies that he is already in a committed relationship in London. Problems arise when the family finds out that Harsh invited Anu, the woman he had an affair with. A family argument ensues, ending the party. Harsh and Sunita later reminisce on how happy they were. Harsh apologises for losing all their money.

The Kapoor family tries to fulfill Amarjeet's wish to take a family photo but are unsuccessful when secrets are revealed. Rahul finds out that his father was lying about having ended the affair, while Sunita discovers that the relationship Rahul has in London is actually with another man. Tia tells Arjun what happened between her and Rahul, calling it a mistake. Arjun finds out Rahul has been reading his script, and confronts him about stealing his first story. A shaken Sunita then reveals to Arjun that she was the one who gave Rahul his story, thinking Arjun had no interest in writing. Amidst all this, Harsh dies in a car accident. Rahul comes out as gay to Arjun and the two leave for London and New Jersey, respectively.

After four months, the duo receive a video message from Amarjeet, in which he requests them to come back, as he is feeling alone. Sunita comes to terms with Rahul's homosexuality, the misunderstanding between Arjun and Tia is cleared and they get back together. The family finally takes the family photo Amarjeet wanted, where they place a cutout of Harsh in his memory.

Production[edit]

In early 2015, Karan Johar announced his next film, titled Kapoor & Sons, which will feature Fawad Khan with Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt as the lead roles. Johar said in an interview "We have a very stylish star cast." The movie revolves around two brothers played by Fawad Khan and Sidharth Malhotra. Rishi Kapoor will be playing grandfather of the male leads.[11][12] Karan Johar said in an interview, “Kapoor & Sons (Since 1921) was a tough film to cast. There was a point when we almost didn’t make it. We kept it on the backburner for over a year. No one was willing to do Fawad Khan’s role. We went to six actors and after six rejections, I told Shakun Batra (director) that we should drop the idea and he started developing another screenplay."[13]

Critical response[edit]

The film upon its release received unanimous critical acclaim, especially for Fawad Khan's role.[23][24]

India[edit]

Srijana Mitra Das from The Times of India gave it 4.0 stars & said, Kapoor & Sons's star is its story. An entirely real family full of uncomfortable secrets, awkward jealousies, & sharp pain where brothers steal, parents cheat, siblings suspect, & 'perfect bacchaas' don't have perfect love-lives.[25] Rohit Vats of Hindustan Times gave it 4/5 stars and called it a "fantastic family drama after a long time".[26] Harshada Rege of DNA gave the film 4/5 stars and praised all characters in general and Fawad Khan in specific saying, "it's Fawad who shines bright. His performance at the "perfect" son with a secret, stands out. The actor shows versatility and vulnerability with equal ease. There's a lot more to this actor than good looks and charm".[27] Anupama Chopra of Film Companion gave it 3.5/5 stars and commended the onscreen performances saying, "The actors breathe life in these movements." [28] Saibal Chaterjee of NDTV gave the film 3.5/5 stars and said, "Kapoor And Sons is intense and incisive in its observation of human inadequacies but is always entertaining".[29] Raja Sen of Rediff.com gave it 3/5 stars and said, "A likeable enough little film with fine characters, Kapoor & Sons tries too hard to turn on the water works at the end, going from a good, mellow drama to a full-blown melodrama by the end of it all".[30] Ankush Bahuguna of MensXP.com gave the film 4/5 stars and called it "breathe of fresh air" and "one of the best family films ever made in Bollywood".[31] Subha Shety-Saha gave it 4/5 stars and praised star cast saying, "it is the near perfect casting that works for the film too".[32] Rachit Gupta of Filmfare praised the film saying, "it will be a tough order for any film this year to be as good as Kapoor & Sons".[33] Dhriti Sharma of Zee News said, "The movie looks like a beautiful tiara, an amalgamation of fine comic punches that further grow with twists and curls into electrifying chemistry, ultimately rising to the reality block-- distorted yet perfect family".[34]

Bollywood Hungama gave the film 4 stars and wrote that the film "makes for an excellent movie that you must watch with your entire family. This film is Beautiful kar gayi chul!".[35] Stutee Gosh of The Quint gave the film 4.5/5 saying, "The first half is rib-tickling and super fun while the real action in the form of plot twists awaits us in the second half". She, although having praised Khan's performance, said his looks distatracts viewers from contents of the film.[36] Mehul S Thakkar of Deccan Chronicle gave it 4.5/5 and said, praising direction of the film, "all credit goes to director Shakun, who holds together the cast like a perfect photo in an album. His sensibilities in this family drama will certainly set a new benchmark".[37] Saibal Chatterjee from NDTV rated movie 3.5/5 & wrote, Kapoor And Sons is intense and incisive in its observation of human inadequacies but is always entertaining.[38] Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express, gave 2 stars out of 5 stating, Sidharth brings to the table a loose-limbed pleasing vulnerability which he reveals slowly. Fawad plays his straight but awesome role. Namrata Joshi from The Hindu called it "the ultimate family film" and commented, "It is yet another film that has been brilliantly crafted and mapped out in terms of the writing, how the scenes slowly get built up towards a crescendo. It’s an onion peel narrative in which the relationships, revelations, secrets and lies, unfinished confidences, unresolved issues, betrayals and conflicts are unspooled layer by layer." Talking about the characters, she described Khan's role "charming and delightful", Malhotras' as "solid and vulnerable", Bhatt as "hyper and ditzy" while calling Kapoor's role as "disappinting and out of sync".[39]

Ananya Bhattacharya of India Today gave the film 3.5 stars and summarised the film as "madhouse drama" while stating, "Shakun Batra's Kapoor And Sons wins in being able to portray the quick fixes that every family has to employ sometime or the other. This is what shines through. Batra crafts a refreshing tale of family problems and the art of sweeping them under the carpet. She also praised Khan's role, while praising the Rajat Kapoor and Pathak's characters as "incomparable". She also applauded the film's cinematography and music.[40] Anna M.M. Vetticad of Firstpost summed up the film as "the best film of 2016 so far". She stated, "Kapoor & Sons is hilarious, heartwarming and heartbreaking rolled in one. It does not wear its social conscience on its sleeve, but make no mistake about this: it has one. This is a disarmingly entertaining, thoughtful film that evokes a fuzzy feeling of warmth. It left me with wet cheeks, a smile on my face and a chuckle welling up in my throat at the memory of Daadu".[41] Nirmalya Dutta of Daily News and Analysis described Khan's role as a gay male as "a big leap forward for India's LGBT movement," noting that in India, where it is illegal to be gay, "Khan had the guts and gumption to play this seminal role."[42]

Overseas[edit]

Surabhi Redkar form Koimoi gave the film 3.5 stars and mentioned, "Kapoor And Sons is a modern-age family drama. It does not shy away from being emotionally soppy yet convincingly lovable. You could laugh, cry and smile through this one!". Redkar praised the characters' realistic nature.[43] Manjusha Radhakrishan of Gulf News gave it 3.5 stars and said, "Kapoor & Sons flourishes as a unit and is the sum total of mature performances by the entire Kapoor clan".[44] Rachel Slatz of New York Times said, "Even though “Kapoor & Sons” goes from lightly comic to more darkly dramatic to pretty overtly melodramatic, it never loses its lived-in quality or plunges into the absurd".[45] Deepa Gaurl of Khaleej Times gave it 2.5/5 and said, "Kapoor & Sons is heart-warming alright but fails short of building on the fantastically captured 'reality' it achieves early on, ending up 'neither here nor there." Although her review of the film was moderate, she praised Fawad Khan's performance saying, "The film, to a great extent, belongs to Fawad Khan - and he is terrific".[46] Suprateek Chaterjee of HuffPost wrote, "Oddly enough, despite several chaotically edited sequences that have little breathing space and rely largely on exposition, the film feels bloated".[47]

ARY News praised Shakun Batra's direction writing, "Batra creates a very watchable portrait of a house in crisis". It also commended Rajat Kapoor, Ratna Pathak Shah, and Khan for their performances.[48] Zeshan Ahmad of The Express Tribune gave the film 4/5 stars and wrote, "Kapoor & Sons is a lesson in how a film can be entertaining, emotional and thought-provoking at the same time. A compelling script and brilliant performances in particular make it a must-watch!".[49] Sana Fatima of The Nation gave it 8/10 stars and called it "one of the most methodically planned family drama".[50] Daily Times wrote, "Nonetheless, the story manages to descend bare into the psyche of audiences with debonair imagery tied with picturesque beauty, keeping you mesmerized".[51] Arva Aslam of Daily Pakistan said that all credit of film goes to its cast.[52]
