Subtle, unusual and witty! Sorry Bhai is a romantic-Comedy by Onir, one of the path-breaking filmmakers of recent times.

Harsh Mathur (Sanjay Suri) is all set to marry Aaliya (Chitrangada Singh), his longtime girlfriend. Harsh’s parents Naveen (Boman Irani) and Gayatri (Shabana Azmi) and his younger brother Siddharth (Sharman Joshi) travel to Mauritius to attend the wedding. Shabana plays a nagging mother while Boman is a jovial young-at-heart father. Siddharth is a young, nerdy and shy Scientist who is expecting a patent on one of his theories.

Highly ambitious Harsh, over the time shifts his focus from Aaliya to his work. Soon love takes a back seat and money becomes his priority. Aaliya, on the other hand, is a simple girl and desires to lead a normal, happy married life with Harsh. While Harsh seems to have no time for his fiancée, an unusual liking springs up between Siddharth and Aaliya. No matter how hard they try to ward-off every inch of feeling for one another, they end up falling madly in love with each other.

Chitrangada and Shabana portray a perfect love-hate relationship. They initially kick-off by disliking each other but eventually start to connect and come to respect one another despite completely contrasting idiosyncrasies.

Shabana and Boman are fabulous together and are as usual outstanding in their respective roles. When it comes to comedy, there are not many who can surpass Boman and one is sure to have more than a bunch of great laughs through the movie. Sharman Joshi clearly steals the show amongst the lead actors. Chitrangada Singh looks gorgeous and perfectly fits the bill of a woman who is slimly mature for Sharman. The sparkling chemistry between Sharman and Chitrangada is hard to go unnoticed.

Crafting out a movie on a tricky subject as this requires a sensitive approach to storytelling - and Onir walks the thin line with aplomb. Sorry Bhai is an unconventional story about complex relationships. Come to think of it, it certainly is a hard-to-digest concept for the orthodox cine-goers, which not many may approve of. Nevertheless, Sorry Bhai is enjoyable and makes for a pleasant watching experience.

      While a negative movie review will try to save the readers from the perceived headache and waste of time, a positive movie review will definitely push the readers towards the show. This review was same for me. :) I really want to go and watch this movie now. Your review was precise and I think you've done a great job with it. I didn't know about this movie before I checked your hub, and I must say, thanks a lot for posting this. Looking forward to read more movie reviews/articles by you.
