Drama free family life certainly isn’t the case for Rahul and Arjun Kapoor, two brothers and the main characters in the Kapoor & Sons movie. They are forced to return home to India and to be reunited with their family and friends when their grandfather has a heart attack.
As the movie progresses, we witness the unraveling of a dysfunctional family who harbor everything from secrets to jealousies to other often regrettable issues that may have you reaching for a box of Kleenex. The movie title is inspired by the ill grandfather Amarjeet, played by Rishi Kapoor, who only has 2 final wishes for his life. One, to receive an army burial and to be laid to rest with his friends and two; to take a family photo titled “Kapoor & Sons, since 1921.”
The controversy arises because it is currently illegal to be gay in India and yet Khan still made the decision to step up and play a gay character. It will hopefully be a step in the right direction for acceptance for the LGBT community, especially in a time when there is still so much homophobic crime.
Will Amarjeet finally get his sought after family photo? Will the movie fulfill its promise to charm and delight your whole family? Find out when Kapoor & Sons premiers on Colors TV, 24 June
