Brothers Review Upodcast

This week’s episode FilmiGirl and Asim square off in the octagon to break down Karan Malhotra’s Akshay Kumar- Siddarth Malhotra starrer Brothers.

Although a massive success at the Box Office, Akshay Kumar movies tend to be critically derided, together we try to analyse why that is?

We compare how this Bollywood remake of Gavin ‘O Connor’s Warrior stacks up, if the trend of remaking Hollywood properties to Indian sensibilities is a reliable formula?

We also delve into if the movie is a successful follow up to Karan’s previous release, Agneepath that was one of our personal favourite movies of 2012.

Taking many tangents we wrap up the show by talking about the movies that Filmigirl missed this year and should catch up on as well as what else is coming out in Bolly-theaters this year.
