Reviews

Maya is the perfect mother. Her live revolves around her three children Aleya, Ankush and Anjali, who think nothing less than the world of her. Despite being divorced from her husband Aman, Maya has ensured that everything runs smoothly in her house, under her watch, and that they continue to remain a happy family unit.

However, when Aman introduces his girlfriend, Shreya, a career oriented woman, who has a lot to learn about children, to the family, the situation immediately takes an unexpected turn. When an incident changes their lives drastically, bringing the two women under the same roof, they find themselves putting to test an unusual situation; can two mothers make a home?

Forced to make some unorthodox choices for her family, Maya must confront her uneasy equation with Shreya and find a way to bring everyone together, despite their differences, to make them a family once again. Can they make a happy home and proudly say... we are family!?

It looks pretty but lacks depth,swinging wildly from the vacuous to the mawkish.Ms Kapoor unable of a real punch into her role., 31 Oct. 2010
By The jazzer in NY - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
There is really just one scene in We Are Family that has any emotional traction. And that can only be bad news for a professed tearjerker.
The scene in question works primarily because of Kajol. As a terminally ill mother lying in a hospital bed, she tells the would-be stepmom of her children (Kareena Kapoor) that she is their past and the latter their future, playing on the word 'kal' (yesterday and tomorrow, jaanewala and aanewala). Sob, sob!
But I hate sob stories, especially those that try too hard to activate the tear-ducts only to fail.
We Are Family looks pretty. But then which Karan Johar production doesn't? Trouble is there is little in the film that could take your attention away from the surface-level inducements.
It is difficult not to warm up to Kajol in We Are Family. She stamps her authority on the character that Susan Sarandon famously played in Chris Columbus' 1998 smash hit, Stepmom. She spouts even the corniest of lines with such conviction that you cannot but marvel.
Wish one could say the same about Kareena. The natural verve of a Julia Roberts is conspicuous by its absence in her performance.

Saddled with a screenplay that simply doesn't provide the instant invigoration of the original film, Kareena is unable to pack any real punch into the character of a career-minded girl who must prepare herself to play mother against all odds to the three children of the once-married man she loves (Arjun Rampal).

Full marks to Kareena for effort but much less for effect.

That is true of We Are Family as a whole. It has the essence of a fabulous weepie. What it delivers teeters on the edge of mediocrity, swinging wildly from the vacuous to the mawkish.
Kajol's character, when she learns she has cervical cancer, breaks downs in her designer kitchen and mutters through her sobs, "I don't want to die!" Scriptwriter Venita Coelho and first-time director Siddharth P. Malhotra don't leave even that thought to the imagination of the audience. We Are Family is that kind of film.
Leading up to this particular kitchen scene are a series of equally over-articulated moments. First the husband in the muddle declares to his estranged wife that he cannot afford to let go of his mistress nor can he turn his back on his children. You know what is coming next.
But just in case you haven't cottoned on, there is another broad brushstroke of a giveaway soon thereafter. Now the new woman in the man's life pipes up: "Meri zindagi tumhare bagair nahin chal sakti aur tumhari bachchon ke bagair (I cannot live without you and you without your children)." Got it? It's time for the divorced wife to move on.
And then comes one of most pedestrian "you have cancer and your days are numbered" scenes ever written for the big screen.
The doctor (Iravati Harshe, who pops up at periodic intervals to make pronouncements about the patient's health) tells the supermom: "You have cervical cancer." The latter asks: "Am I going to die?" The nonchalant reply: "You will live as long as you can, but from now on count your life in moments, not years."
It's awful. But, coming to think of it, it might be good business. The general lack of subtlety that pervades We Are Family may actually help it strike an instant chord with that segment of the soda-and-popcorn crowd that loves the feel of moist eyes and drenched hankies.
Lack of depth is the norm in We Are Family. The lighting is uniformly dazzling and the film is bathed in the same sort of soulless blue and white blush all through. The makers obviously don't have much faith in variable lighting as a means of orchestrating moods.
We Are Family is set in Sydney, Australia, but you are unlikely to spot any locals in the film's sparkling but inexpressive frames, which are swept clean of people, street activities and the sounds of the immediate environs. This film could have been shot in Bujumbura without the world noticing!
Arjun Rampal is perfectly cast as the `phlegmatic' photographer caught in the crossfire between two spirited ladies. He is so wondrously wooden that he could give the finest mahogany a solid complex. What was the intense and mercurial Ed Harris doing in Stepmom?
But We Are Family is recommended for two reasons. One, Kajol is in fine fettle here. Two, it's a rare Hindi film
that is a legitimate remake, inspiration acknowledged and rights purchased. It's a sign that Bollywood's chori chori chupke chupke rip-off days are beginning to fade away.

Stepmom
... is a profoundly moving story with some of my favourite Hindi movie actors 14 Oct. 2014

This is a profoundly moving story with some of my favourite Hindi movie actors. Arjun Rampal, Kareena Kapoor and Kajol work well together. Kareena's character is so (too?) patient and forbearing - are there really people like that still living? All the same, it was a great movie. Keep the tissues handy, and I don't think I'd watch this with my kids. It brings life's realities to the forefront and we all know there's a lot of unhappy with the happy.

The step mom remake 13 Feb. 2011
By Amit Talpade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Hindi movies have always stolen ideas from Hollywood as passed them of as their own. So when a filmmaker chooses to remake a Hollywood movie and does not hide his intentions, one must applaud this move. We are a Family or WAAF is a remake of the Hollywood movie Stepmom. Stepmom was a tearjerker and a great film and starred Susan Sarandon, Julia Roberts and Ed Harris. In the Hindi version you have Kajol, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal essaying those parts. We are a Family is about relationships and family dynamics in our modern world. Kajol and Arjun Rampal have been divorced for three years and share the custody of their three children. Arjun Rampal starts dating Kareena Kapoor and his family retaliates. Their skirmishes with the children and ex wife form the major plot of the movie. The movie changes track when a tragedy happens and ultimately healing the rifts.
Acting by all the major characters was superb. As expected Kajol delivers a top notch performance which is not surprising but she is equally supported and surpassed by Kareena Kapoor. I think this could be the best role we have had Kareena play in recent movies. The role was such that she could have come across as a B****, but she does not. Arjun Rampal is a real revelation because he manages to sustain himself in the midst of seasoned actresses. Simply put he delivers another strong performance after Rock On and Rajneeti.
The emotional scenes have been handled well by debutant Sidharth Malhotra and can even strain the tear duct in some of you folks. He does a good job in adapting it to Indian tastes but gets carried away at the end. The final moments after the family photo session stretch the patience. Music has always been such a strong forte of Dharma Productions but the music by Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy is the weakest score we have had from them in recent times.
I thought the movie was just plain ok but watchable all the same. I gave it three stars. 9/8/10

Not even worth 1 star 23 Dec. 2012
By matrix365 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Ok, so it wasn't the movie that was bad but the dvd quality. I've seen the movie before so I decided to buy it on dvd....bad mistake. The dvd was so bad I wasn't even able to make out their faces. It was probably pirated. If you buy this dvd buy directly from amazon..yes the dvd is more expensive but its worth it.
