Yes you can challenge it. But before that some aspect has to be seen that is whether property was self acquired property of your father and if so then your father has absolute right to execute will under section 30 of Hindu succession act. But if you can show that father was not willing to execute such will but your brothers have create pressure upon them and obtained it by taking disadvantage of fact then you can challenge it within three years from your knowledge. If it is found that father was not in position to understand effect of deed or was pressurized by some one or was not in sound mind position then court can cancelled the will. You can file civil suit for necessary relief.

Hello Madam, you can file to contest the validity of your fathers will. What is the current stage of the property ? Is probate already obtained on the will ? Is the will registered ? Depends on the current scenario an advice can be given
