Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan Full Movie Review and Rating: Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan Movie Review: Salman Khan Film Dil Mein Aata Hai, Samajh Mein Nahi
- Rating – 2/5
- Star cast – Salman Khan, Pooja Hegde and Venkatesh Daggubati
- Director – Farhad Samji
Salman is single, even in the film. He has 3 brothers – Luv, Ishq and Moh, who vowed to stay single like the Bigg Boss, err, big brother. But then the makers had already cast Shehnaaz Gill, Vinali Bhatnagar and Palak Tiwari, so the little bros had to fall in love. They can’t, however, get married until Bhaijaan does. They try to reunite him with his one true love, Bhagyashree. But a very adorable and nostalgic Maine Pyar Kiya montage later, it is established that she’s moved on, is married to Himalaya Dasani and has a son, Abhimanyu Dasani – all played by the real peeps. Yeah, sure we whistled at that.
Please note, we’re one hour into the film, and we still don’t know Bhaijaan’s real name. Coz he ain’t got any.
Where to begin? Salman Khan is, well, Salman Khan. His long locks have an identity of their own. It is no Pathaan’s man bun, but we can survive it. Pooja fits into the doe-eyed Bollywood heroine role perfectly. She doesn’t drink, doesn’t work (although we were told she has a job, she doesn’t go to work), but loves to love and has a smile that makes the hero’s heart go dhak-dhak.
Siddharth Nigam, Raghav Juyal and Jassie Gill as Salman’s 3 kid bros are interchangeable, honestly. They’re more like background dancers to Salman Khan’s solo dance. But it’s not their fault. That’s the anatomy of a Salman Khan movie. Same goes for the pretty Shehnaaz Gill, Vinali Bhatnagar and Palak Tiwari. Great launch pad, aweful roles.
Watching Satish Kaushik on screen, weeks after his death, was heartbreaking. His comedic presence, nuanced expressions – even when the script does nothing for his character, and that megawatt smile, always light up the screen. We will miss you, sir.
The second half of KKBKKJ welcomes you to South India. We’re not saying that, the movie is, in place of the giant ‘intermission’ sign. Enter Venkatesh, exit Salman Khan’s long, blonde-highlighted hair. Eating off banana leaves atop a giant dining table and dancing in lungi, Salman wins the Balakrishna (Venkatesh) family over and ladki ke saath, inherits the family enemy too.
First, there is Vijender Singh’s Mahavir. Your heart breaks to see a world-class boxer grind his teeth for nothing, inevitably getting ready for getting beaten up by Salman Khan. He is not alone. Since the movie is divided into North and South, post interval, there’s Jagapathi Babu’s Nageshwar. Equally menacing, somehow with the same teeth-grinding problem.
They join forces, take turns to send goons to beat up Salman and his now-extended family, who are then beaten into pulp, and the villains grind more teeth. One epic shootout scene in slow motion just catalyses the whole thing. You know ab Bhai ki satakli. But that’s only in the last half hour. And only if your brain cells have survived.
Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan is a film for Salman Khan fans. It is a no-brainer, full maar-dhaar, naach-gaana, dance-shance wala entertainer. If you look very, very closely, there’s a story. And when you find it, it is like finding the Almighty him/herself. But, like most things Bhaijaan does, KKBKKJ dil mein aata hai, samajh mein nahi.
We’re going with 2 stars out of 5 for the mega superstar, Salman Khan.
