One of the most eagerly awaited movies this year is We Are Family. Riding high on the success of My Name is Khan, we see Kajol in the lead again, alongside Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal. This movie is said to be a remake of the Hollywood movie Stepmom starring Julia Roberts. We just stop and wonder when this typical[intlink id="808" type="post"]Bollywood fascination with Hollywood[/intlink] will stop, with ‘remakes’ being made year after year.
The story of We Are Family is pretty much the same as that of Stepmom. It revolves around the life of Maya (Kajol), who leads a happy family life with her three children despite being divorced from her husband Aman (Arjun Rampal). But things take an unusual turn when Aman introduces them to his girlfriend Shreya (Kareena Kapoor). Encountered with a situation, Maya must figure out a way to bring the family back together as the two women learn to put their issues aside.
Directed by Siddarth Malhotra and produced by Karan Johar, We Are Family is anticipated to be amongst the big scorers this year. The music has been given by the [intlink id="818" type="post"]talented trio of Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy[/intlink]. Slated for a September release, this hindi film promises to be worth a watch.
