The story follows two main characters - David (Akshay Kumar) and Monty (Sidharth Malhotra). The story starts with Gary (Jackie Shroff) who used to be a street-fighter, and was jailed for 10 years for some unfortunate incidents. Upon returning home after serving his prison sentence, he realises that the wounds from the past still alive, his past will continue to haunt his past. His two sons - David and Monty are grown up now.

David, the elder son, is an ex-fighter turned school teacher. He shares a bitter relationship with his father and younger brother, Monty. He is married to Jenny (Jacqueline Fernandez), who is the ray of hope in his life. Monty loves Jenny and their only child Pupu to the core, and works hard to earn a living and give his family the comfort they deserve.

Monty, the younger son and half-brother of David, is a loner and alcoholic. He takes part in the Underground Street fighting, but lacks the winner's attitude. When the 'Right to Fight' is announced, he takes up the challenge as once in a lifetime opportunity to earn the respect he has been yearning for.

On the other hand, David quits his job of Physics teacher and enrols for the 'Right to Fight' event as a desperate attempt to save his family from financial crisis and provide all benefits to to Pupu, who has been diagnosed with critical kidney condition.

Such is the fate of life that the two brothers face each other in the boxing ring, for a fight that is ultimate for each brother.

NDTV|Review by Saibal Chatterjee
An overblown, ultra-violent melodrama, Brothers spills a lot of blood and breaks plenty of bones on the way to establishing the primacy of fraternal love.

Indian Express|Review by Shubhra Gupta
‘Brothers’ uses a form of kinetic martial arts to foreground its story of two warring siblings, but it stays, at heart, a Karan Johar film : the crunching bones and spraying blood is as heavily underscored by we-are-family soppiness as it is with deafening background music. Result : a film that actually has a plot (officially adapted from Hollywood film ‘Warriors’, with shades of ‘Fight Club’ and ‘Rocky’ thrown in) riding on competent acts, but which squanders its advantages because of the treatment.

Brothers is a decent watch, but if you want your money’s worth, then I recommend watching the original Warrior.

How does a commoner in India understand MMA (Mixed Martial Arts)? It’s something that allows you to throw punches like a street fighter without getting arrested.
