A remake of the highly entertaining and performance packed 2011 film Warrior, Brothers is a high-octane family drama set against the blood curdling backdrop of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra play brothers David and Monty. Sons of Jackie Shroff, they both grow up to become different people. While David leaves the street life and becomes a teacher, Monty still carries the torch of fighting he learnt from his dad as a kid. The film begins with Jackie’s release from prison and we get a backstory of why he ended up there and how his sons perceive him after so many years. Jacqueline Fernandez plays Akshay’s wife who has a daughter fighting a life threatening illness. Karan Malhotra takes a lot of time to build up the drama and weaves his character with finer details that sometimes don’t matter to the story. However, the real hero of the film is the MMA, and the money making scenes comes post interval. Monty and David’s fight and whether these brothers make peace with their past or take the bloody road of revenge is what the film is about.
