We Are Family is a film directed by debutant director Sidharth P. Malhotra. The film is a remake of Julia Roberts & Ed Harris starrer Hollywood film "Stepmom". The film is just like Indian Chinese noodles, spicy yet delicious.
Maya (Kajol) is the perfect mother. Her life revolves around her three children, Aleya (Aanchal Munjal), Ankush (Nominath Ginsberg) and Anjali (Diya Sonecha). Despite being divorced from her husband Aman (Arjun Rampal), Maya has ensured that everything runs smoothly in her house, under her watch, and that they continue to remain a happy family unit.
When Aman introduces his girlfriend, Shreya (Kareena Kapoor), a career-oriented woman, the situation takes an unexpected turn. However, Maya is diagnosed with a terminal illness and circumstances bring the two women under the same roof. Can two mothers make a home, forms the rest of the story.
Debutante director Siddharth P. Malhotra's We Are Family is a tearjerker with its superlative story telling. It makes you smile in some parts and leaves you moist-eyed in the others.
Performance wise, Kajol is superb. She is perfect in her role. Kareena excels yet again and her sequences with the kids are a delight. Arjun Rampal is a surprise wonce again. He is excellent. He handles the emotional moments very well. All the three kids - Nominath Ginsberg, Aanchal Munjal & Diya Sonecha are brilliant.
On the whole, We Are Family is brilliant film. Must go for this one.
