Kapoor And Sons - Top Reviews

Typically, Bollywood films like to show families in an unrealistic manner. We are shown 'filmi families' through a traditionally idealistic prism complete with the doting mother, the man of the house, the devoted children (or alternately pure evil ones), and the wise grandparents. Here, the film turns every family cliche on its head.The defeated man-of-the-house secretly yearns for his family's support and respect, the woman-of-the-house has her own dreams and wishes her husband would encourage

Shakun Batra's second feature shows promise, but doesn't quite add up into something spectacular

Shakun Batra’s sophomore effort is a finely, intelligently crafted film which stumbles because of its eagerness
Raja Sen, Rediff
On an overall basis, ‘Kapoor & Sons’ is a decent, neat and a clean family drama which will be loved and connects with everyone who like such types of films. The slow narration and repetitive tracks might dilute the fun for few, while others, will cherish this film where the legacy of family drama continues.

KAPOOR & SONS makes for an excellent movie that you must watch with your entire family
Bollywood Hungama
The film, to a great extent, belongs to Fawad Khan - and he is terrific. Rishi Kapoor as grandpa serves as a perfect foil to the tension, and one must give it to him for the laboured make-up he had to wear.
Khaleej Times
This film takes an alternate KJo route, to say that it's all about accepting and forgiving your family. Sure, you didn't get to pick one, but now that you're stuck with one, accept it. Like a mole on your forehead, it's distracting, embarrassing and obnoxious, but it's all yours.
Kunal Guha, Mumbai Mirror
Kapoor & Sons' is a family entertainer which is high on drama!
Radha Mishra, Meri News
A fantastic family drama after a long time
Rohit Vats, Hindustan Times
'Kapoor and Sons' doesn't have matured casting and the young and dynamic casting has some imperfections and that is what has made the movie so special. They don't provide matured performances however even during crucial scenes. Alia Bhatt has definitely recovered from the colossal flop of 'Shaandaar'. The movie has its emotions and it may bring tears in few scenes.

Rishi Kapoor with all the prosthetic work, turns Daadu. He is easily lovable and endearing with his antics. A emotionally riveting performance from him.
Surabhi Redkar, Koi Moi
Sidharth Malhotra, Fawad Khan and Alia Bhatt's 'Kapoor & Sons' is a complete heart-stealer!
Madhuri Prabhu, Claps N Slaps
Watch Kapoor & Sons for Alia Bhatt‘s naughty, funny moments, for Rishi Kapoor‘s hilariously perfect acting, for Sidharth Malhotra and Fawad Khan‘s brilliant performances. But more importantly, watch it to see a drama that is packed with emotions and tiny heart-melting moments that are sure to leave you with a smile and a hazy view. Make sure you go with your family at least once.

There’s a strong Karan Johar impression on Kapoor & Sons, but that is expected. After all, he is the producer of the film.

Touted as a romantic comedy, Kapoor & Sons is far more than just being that. It is neither a love triangle, nor a family drama. The movie has elements of love, compassion, emotion and rage. Do not give this one a miss.

Is there any family without little cracks and big gaps? In a small town of Kunoor, inside a traditional bungalow, a family faces many struggles. But there's always love to tide things over, and that makes for a very watchable popcorn treat,

'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

ProducerDirector Karan Johar is known for making entertaining films catering to all sorts of audiences right from the rural parts of India to the NRI's in the foreign lands. His films are known for larger than life portrayal of our society and that's what manage to work in the favour of their films. While most of their films belong to romantic genre, there were few catering to the family drama type of audience. The variation of this genre can be seen in terms of films like 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham' and 'We Are Family', where one manages to touch the right family nerve of its targeted audience, while others ended up being totally opposite. Their latest offering in this genre is 'Kapoor & Sons', which also reminds us of Hollywood film 'Sabrina'. The expectation level are high due to association of young heart throbs like Alia Bhatt, Fawad Khan and Sidharth Malhotra along with highly popular song 'Chull'.

KAPOOR & SONS is supple and smooth, with lots of rough edges and highs and lows. It's a perfect family movie.
Martin D'Souza, Glam Sham
Music is peppy and the back ground score is apt for the scenes in the film. Cinematography is very good and the editing has negligible flaws. Director Shakun Batra has managed to come up with the quality output this time, unlike “Ekk Main Aur Ekk Tu” in the past. Karan Johar’s hand in the film is surely felt.
Aravind, Andhra & Telangana Wishesh
There is fun moments, emotional atyachaar and yes, love quotient in the Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Fawad Khan starrer.
