It is one of the apparently unwritten rules of the Indian society that there exists a relationship between a Dewar and Bhabhi which sometimes assumes myriad proportions. MERE BROTHER KI DULHAN is one such story of a Dulhan where a younger brother in his quest for a Dulhan for his elder brother falls in love with her. It has been happening in real life for quite some time but Hindi cinema has now taken a first step forward in this direction with MERE BROTHER KI DULHAN. It is in sync with the times, and it also is a pointer to the fact that the so-called idea of a younger brother being Laxman to his elder brother Ram is changing factoring in the change in the societal structure.
During the last decade or half Hindi cinema has given some interesting works where the focus is on the Dulhan, and the quest to win her. It could be in the form of two male stars vying for the Dulhan or the male star trying his level best to get the Dulhan fighting against all the odds from the society. Here is a look at such films over a decade and a half which underlines this premise.
