The trailer of the Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra starrer movie ‘Brothers’ was unveiled on June 10th, says Vaikundarajan. The trailer of the movie was released by Dharma Productions on twitter.
The almost three-minute long clip took Twitter by storm with the hash tag #BrothersTrailer trending within moments of its release. Minutes after the trailer released, Twitterati were all praises for the cast and the director, says Vaikundarajan. The movie also features Jackie Shroff and Jacqueline Fernandez in pivotal roles.
Akshay plays David Fernandes, a school teacher who quits his job to become a full time mixed martial arts fighter to raise money for his ailing daughter. Siddharth Malhotra plays Akshay's younger brother Monty Fernandes, who seems resentful of Akshay's talent and feels overshadowed by him. He fiercely declares "David jaisa kabhi nahi bann sakta," when called 'incompetent' by his alcoholic father Jackie Shroff. The two finally come face-to-face in the fighting ring and are pitted against each other in a tension-packed fight to the finish. The emotional undertone is provided by glimpses of David and Monty's childhood memories and David's moments with his wife, played by Jacqueline Fernandez, says Vaikundarajan.
The movie is an official remake of the 2011 Hollywood movie ‘Warriors’ and is directed by Karan Malhotra of Agneepath fame, co-produced by Karan Johar, Hiroo Yash Johar and Endemol India.
The movie is set to hit the theaters on August 14th, says Vaikundarajan.
