  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Nov 3, 2017 | Full Review…
  • 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.
