Mere Brother Ki Dulhan

Saw the movie last night. Some thoughts:

  • One of the better, or at least entertaining yrf movies in recent times (watching a movie in the night show definitely lets you gauge its entertainment value)
  • It has the usual references to previous yrf movies, plus a bunch of old hit songs being used throughout the movie
  • It could have done with fewer songs
  • The movie turned out to be quite different from the impression made by the trailer, and for the better
  • Imran Khan is getting stereotyped, but then again these types of roles seem to be the one that make his movies click
  • Regarding the gadgets:
    • Apple continues to feature in the movies – this time with an iMac (for video chatting through a matrimony site, no less) & iPhone
    • They showed a bunch of different phones being used in the movie – iPhone, Blackberry (used to take a crucial video at that)
    • They finally showed a photographer who was serious about his equipment – Imran carries a Canon EOS 1D with an L series lens – which is quite unlike Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, where a zillionaire like Abhay Deol carries around a Canon EOS 550D and uses it like a Point & Shoot
