WEB DESK: Our heartthrob Fawad Khan has been showered with accolades from both the critics and audiences for his second Bollywood outing “ Kapoor and Sons” after his debut Khoobsurat in 2014.
Karan Johar’s Kapoor and Sons is a family drama starring Fawad Khan, Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra in lead roles.The plot revolves around the story of two brothers (Fawad and Sidharth), the problems they face at home with their dysfunctional family and how things take a turn when Alia Bhatt walks into their lives.
Fawad Khan plays Rahul Kapoor who is a bestselling novelist based in London while his younger sibling Arjun(Sidharth) is a part-time bartender and struggling writer in New Jersey. Summoned back to the family home in Coonoor when their Daadu (Rishi Kapoor) falls ill, the boys are compelled to confront the buried secrets that have kept them apart for so many years.
Here’s what renowned critics have got to say about Fawad Khan’s role in the movie:
Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV:
On the acting front, Fawad Khan steals the show with an impressively modulated, confident performance as an achiever condemned to perpetually carry the burden of expectation and hide his true self behind a wall of falsehoods.
Shubhra Gupta of Indian Express
Fawad plays his straight, and he doesn’t lift off the screen, the way he did in ‘Khubsoorat’.
Ananya Bhattacharya of India Today
In this tale of the flawed family, Fawad Khan is spectacular. The actor, whose debut in Khoobsurat was lauded by most people, does a fabulous job of bringing Rahul’s dilemmas and the burden of protecting secrets on screen.
Rohit Vats of Hindustan Times
Fawad Khan is like a dormant volcano, simmering from the inside. After a while, you expect him to go for controlled eruption, but he surprises you by going all out. His capabilities as an actor are on a full display in Kapoor & Sons.
Fawad Khan as the successful novelist and older sibling essays Rahul with restraint and yet, has his moments when he lets his guard down, if only to express his anger, disappointment and hurt.
It seems that our handsome hunk have spell bound millions across the border with his charming personality and laudable acting in the film.
