Viewers willing to embrace its skillful and emotionally real depiction of a man making impossible choices -- and especially fans of Akshay Kumar ready to see him excel in a physically and emotionally challenging role -- will be well rewarded.
As David's trainer tells him: "The world is cruel, master. It laughs at your pain." And it applauds your pain, too, especially the punishing physical kind. It's up to you to keep the tears flowing.
The story of estranged sibling rivals cage-fighting in a mixed martial arts tournament dovetails with Bollywood's classic good brother-versus-bad brother trope.
Brothers is a film that plays emotional rope-a-dope with its audience.
It is the mind-numbingly inane commentary that is the most grating part of these scenes. The verbal diarrhoea drowns out what is supposed to be the most action-packed part of the film.
Bollywood. . .culturally adapted remake of "Warrior". . . to the alleys, waterfront, melodrama, and music of Mumbai. . . is surprisingly moving fraternal bonding.
Almost all the second-half drama feels sketchily conceived; that canvas of narrative and thematic groundwork O'Connor set down before his brothers in arms went head-to-head simply hasn't travelled.
This story of a fractured family is high on manipulative cinematic tools but fails to make an emotional connection. What stays with you are the no-holds-barred action sequences and the hummable theme tune.
Brothers offers a whole new experience to MMA action. Hindi audiences will enjoy the novelty. But all said and done, this should've been done with a lot more finesse.
With greying hair and soft, sad eyes, Akshay carries Brothers on his shoulders, meriting applause for a vulnerable, memorable performance.
Brothers: Blood Against Blood is a surprisingly fast-paced and engaging drama rooted in subjects that never grow old.
Some judgmental errors are so glaring that it's hard to think them as continuity mistakes.
