A family that stays together, fights together and screams together is a clear depiction of "Kapoor and Sons". The family revolves around the kapoor "clan" and their daily chores of disturbances that they encounter in their daily lives. The elderly grandfather (Rishi Kapoor) is a delight to watch with his smack able performance of playing a 90 year old young adult to be precise. His in time comic act in between serious discussions is what keeps you waited for the next to happen, otherwise you would not like to wait for more.
Rajat Kapoor and Ratna Pathak play the role of a disgruntled couple who are on the verge of the end of their marriage but still remain under the same roof amidst of all the past/ present quarrels which keeps the audience clueless before intermission. Fawad Khan irresistible screen presence would want you to see him more. While Sidharth Malhotra's intense performance helps the movie to keep it going. Alia's looks lovable with her pleased performance.
What might annoy the audience is that it has nothing new in it, heartbreaks, fights, arguments is what keeps on trolling in the movie. At one point you feel that instead of stretching it more, it needs to be wrapped up quickly. This family Drama becomes heavy as it includes misunderstandings, distrust, arguments all in one. Had it been made on a more lighter note it would have worked more.
Though in the end if thus makes you realize that family, relationship's are important and we at times knowingly or unknowingly take it for granted. It leaves with an ending that the far you are the greater you realize the worth of your family , so value time and people surrounded around you.
