'Kapoor and Sons' trailer is out and Fawad Khan will melt your heart


NDTV's  Saibal Chatterjee writes "Kapoor And Sons is intense and incisive in its observation of human inadequacies but is always entertaining."

"It keeps springing little surprises all the way through, so much so that at times it is hard to believe that this has emerged from the Karan Johar stable."  

Shubhra Gupta from Indian Express gives the movie a surpising two stars, noting, "Fawad plays his straight, and he doesn’t lift off the screen, the way he did in Khubsoorat. Rishi gets some laughs in, but has to struggle against the heavy prosthetics."

Rohit Vats of Hindustan Times gives the film four stars and writes,"You’ll love it for being spontaneous, precise, fast paced and well...lovable. A fantastic family drama after a long time."

Times of India Srijana Mitra Das notes "This is a family with its make-up off, screaming through hilarious situations - a sequence involving a plumber is side-splittingly good."

Jessie | 7 years ago | Reply Film was mediocre. Although loved Siddharth and Alia's acting. Ratna pathak and rajat Kapoor was great too. Didn't think much of Fawad, found his acting mediocre. Rishi played his role well.
