Mubarakan stars Arjun Kapoor as a set of twins who are raised separately by various family members, one in London and the other in Punjab. One twin helpfully wears a turban. Trouble brews when the families begin matchmaking and both brothers turn to their uncle, played by Arjun's real uncle Anil Kapoor. The prospective brides are played by actresses Ileana D'Cruz and Athiya Shetty.
Mubarakan is directed by Anees Bazmee, who made films such as No Entry and Welcome with Anil Kapoor, and opened last week to middling reviews. Critics were agreed that Anil Kapoor's performance was the highlight of the film but were unenthusiastic about the rest of the cast. "Anil Kapoor, who is as irrepressible as ever, lends some lustre to the proceedings with his impressive energy levels and funny one-liners," wrote Saibal Chatterjee in his review for NDTV.com, adding, "Arjun Kapoor is far less consistent in his double role, but he does strike a few purple patches along the way, demonstrating a comic flair that cries out for a better film than this one."
