Kapoor and & Sons is grounded in the messy yet loveable family drama of the Kapoor clan. When their 90-year-old grandfather has a heart attack, estranged brothers Rahul (Fawad Khan) and Arjun Kapoor (Sidharth Malhotra) are drawn back home. Through family parties, stylish dance scenes and blurted confessions, the secrets within the Kapoor family are slowly revealed. The film subverts the traditional blockbuster Bollywood formula of a picture perfect family life. Kapoor & Sons became a runaway hit as audiences embraced this new-to-mainstream naturalistic family dynamics and were ready to see a little of their imperfect selves reflected on screen.
‘The Kapoors are unflinchingly chaotic, tragic, frustrated, unfair, and petty. They oscillate between repression and explosion, keeping up appearances and exposing themselves for the world to see, laughing and crying, dancing together and running away, lying and truth-telling. In other words, Kapoor and Sons is the drama-ridden and pulsating story behind every family photo.’ San Diego Asian Film Festival
