In this bastardization of Rain Man, chorus singer Deven Yuvvraaj (Salman Khan) tries to trick his autistic older brother Gyanesh (Anil Kapoor) out of his inheritance. The inevitable reconciliation between the brothers would be more believable if Khan’s character wasn’t so unrepentantly rotten during the first two-thirds of the movie, especially the revelation that Deven was disowned by his father after twice beating Gyanesh. And yet Deven is the brother we’re supposed to feel sorry for. After Black & White, Subhash Ghai’s compelling exploration of terrorism from early 2008, Yuvvraaj is a disappointment.
