[The acting] is technically accomplished, but never quite transcends their scripted traits, rendering the film's tonal shifts more matter of fact than emotionally wrenching.

A rollicking male-bonding picture about three buddies who open a cricket academy in India's exotic Gujarat, Brothers for Life turns extremely dark and violent in the last half hour, becoming a far more significant film.

The performances are strong throughout, but both Yadav and Rajput particularly impress, as they imbue their potentially clichéd roles of egghead accountant and hot-headed control freak with true depth.

Three friends fight for careers in a rapidly changing India in this smart adaptation of a best-selling novel.

The dramatic stakes are so puny that every obstacle can be overcome with a simple work-it-out montage, a cheap device prevalent enough in this movie to start a drinking game.
