New-aged 'Dharma Productions' and 'Yashraj Films' are sinister-sisters when it comes to the bollywood-ish masala junkies. They somehow associate an axiom called "Super-Hit" along with their products, audience's view notwithstanding. Karan Johar presumptuously touted 'Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna", "Kurbaan" and "My Name is Khan" as biggest money-grossers, contrary to general notions and common beliefs. After last few duds (but self-declared scorchers), K Jo is back with Hindustaani-reincarnation of epic Step-mom.
Karan Johar, abiding by the movie-making ethics, bought the rights of Step Mom before remaking the same in form of 'We R Family'. Kudos to him for his bravado as against to his peers who unabashedly copy the West and lamely enough, call it an "Inspiration". We R Family is a point-by-point adaptation of the original with few obvious 'forced-exceptions'. Any K Jo movie bound to have strong emotional values; if any of the protagonist is dying in the sub-plot, then it would be made sure that every single ounce of pumped-oxygen would make you cry with agony. 'We R Family' is no different to this universal 'Dharma' rule. Right from the 'buildup-of-climax' to an 'extended-run-of-climax' it was full-on emotional drama, thanks to 'weepy-creepy-climax'. It doesn't goes unnoticed, mind you. Majority of the women and girly-teens just love the soppy ending; the eyes are drenched, heart goes heavier and tissues are soaked. Happy Soggy Ending!!!
Kajol does full-justice to her role where she plays the contrasting characters of an affectionate mother and a jealous ex-wife with ridiculous ease. Kareena Kapoor, sans any oomph, is decent provided comparisons with Julia Roberts are not drawn. Arjun Rampal is the surprise package who is definitely improving by every outing. Amongst kids, Diya (as Anjali) is adorable. The judgment for the debutant director Siddharth Malhotra is suspended till his 'real' movie (and acid test). Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy continue their form-slump with series of ordinary tracks.
Maverick Verdict: If you have watched Step-Mom, there is nothing new in the story; If you have not, then you would be disappointed with its Indian avtaar. Even if rona-dhona is your 'Cup' of tea, WAF might not enthrall your eyes like 'Saucer'. No matter what any dumb critic (self-proclaimed-Maverick) says, 'We are Family' is still a Family film that should be watched by every member of a Family as its all about loving your Family. Because if not, then how would Johars declare it as a Super-Duper HIT? AHEM, I told you its an axiom and there is no need to tag 'Hence Proved' to it. Karan Johar, please STAY IN PEACE; we are better off it!!!!!
