We Are Family – Releasing on Sept 3rd

The Indian adaptation of Chris Columbus’s hit movie ‘Stepmom’ starring Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon boasts of equally heavyweight actors from Bollywood – Kajol and Kareena Kapoor. Directed by new director Siddharth Malhotra and produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, ‘We Are Family’ lives up to its expectations and is a family entertainer in all senses of the word.

‘We are family’ is the story of Maya, the divorced mother of three children (Kajol) who takes good care of her children and brings them up well despite her estrangement. Her ex-husband Aman (Arjun Rampal) finds a new girlfriend (Kareena) after the divorce which brings in some drama. But things start to boil when Maya is diagnosed with terminal cancer and everyone is forced to live together. Two women, one man, three children and a situation they cannot turn away from makes ‘We Are Family’ an interesting proposition right away. The casting is perfect as both actresses are highly talented and fit the roles perfectly and the same goes for Arjun Rampal and the kids.

Shot in Australia, ‘We Are Family’ is a family drama that can be watched by the entire family. Siddharth Malhotra does a commendable job in adapting a big starrer like Stepmom and pulling it off well for his first movie. The movie is light, fun and has the right element of family drama and does not indulge in needless dramatics.

Music is by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. Backgrund score is by Raju Singh. DOP is Mohanan. A must watch for those into family movies with good sensibilities.
