Movie Review: Badhaai Ho | Badhaai Ho is a double dose of emotion and comedy movie review – Bollywood News in Hindi

Ever since Ayushmann Khurrana started his film career with the unconventional film Vicky Donor in the year 2012, he has become the poster boy of such unconventional genre films, which depict taboo themes, which are well received by the audience and cinema lovers. Comes. While Ayushmann’s first film was about sperm donation, his film Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, released last year, portrayed the problem of dream in a funny way. And now once again Ayushmann Khurrana has come up with one such unconventional genre film, Badhaai Ho, which talks about conception at an older age. So Kya Badhaai Ho will also manage to entertain the audience like Ayushmann’s other hits, or it will fail in its endeavor. Let’s review.

Badhaai Ho is the story of a family that faces an unusual situation. Nakul Kaushik (Ayushmann Khurrana) lives in Delhi with his grandmother (Surekha Sikri), father Jeetendra aka Jeetu (Gajraj Rao), mother Priyamvada (Neena Gupta), and younger brother Gular (Shardul Rana). Nakul falls in love with his colleague Rene (Sanya Malhotra). One day Jeetu and Priyamvada become intimate and then after 19 weeks Priyamvada becomes pregnant. This news is quite shocking for Nakul and Guler. Priyamvada also wants to get this child dropped but doctors tell her that she will have to do it in 3-4 days only. But Priyamvada is not in a condition to have an abortion so she decides to have this child. What happens after this, it will be known after watching the rest of the film.

The story of Akshat Ghildiyal, Shantanu Srivastava and Jyoti Kapoor is very simple and relatable. It is surprising that no one made a film on the subject and the writers have done justice to it well. Akshat Ghildiyal’s screenplay is a bit subtle. It goes against the film in a few scenes but then immediately makes up for it. Every single situation shown in the film looks quite accurate and there is nothing that is over. Akshat Ghildiyal’s dialogues are very funny and funny and will be loved by the audience. With this, it will also be very popular among the audience.

Amit Sharma’s direction is good but he stumbles in the first half. Apart from this, he should have presented the romantic scene well. Nakul and Reena’s trek is quite cold but the elderly Kaushik couple and Dadi steal the limelight. But looking positively, Amit Sharma portrays the emotions very well in many scenes. The film also has a few subplots and Nakul’s visit to Guler’s school to bully may seem unwelcome. But it is important because it helps to explain how different levels of generations react to this type of development in life.

Badhaai Ho may sound like a comedy-filled film with its trailer and promos, but it is not. Funny moments are definitely there in the film but at the same time the film is full of emotional and touching moments. If you keep your expectations in the right direction then surely you will be able to enjoy this film. However, the opening of the film and the introduction of the characters are a bit weak. The film picks up pace only when the Kaushik couple informs their two sons Nakul and Gular about the ‘good news’. Dadi’s reaction at this juncture will definitely be liked. After this the film slips a bit and at the intermission point it looks like an arthouse film. In the second half from where the film attracts the most. Dadi’s anger in Meerut is praiseworthy. Nakul’s reaction when his parents return from Meerut is priceless. Another scene which is quite spectacular is when Nakul apologizes to Reena’s mother (Sheeba Chaddha). The final scene though is the best part of the film and will surely make the viewer teary-eyed.

Ayushmann Khurrana delivers a stellar performance and is worth watching in the film. Be it the scenes where he is acting like a clumsy or the scenes where he is acting intoxicated, everything is top-notch and he excels in every scene. A scene where he apologizes to Reena’s mother is sure to win over everyone. Sanya Malhotra looks great but her screen presence is very less. Neena Gupta is the lifeblood of the entire film and she has given a lovely and accurate performance in it. In many scenes, she conveys a lot with her eyes and silence. Gajraj Rao is in his top form and steals all the limelight in many scenes. He looks like the second lead hero in the film and carries out his responsibility with great ability. Surekha Sikri graces her role in every scene and surely she will be deserving of applause and whistles in many of her scenes. Shardul Rana delivers a stellar performance and one of his scenes with Ayushmann in the second half is noteworthy. Sheeba Chadda makes a tremendous impact in a small role. She speaks a lot through her silence. Other actors do well in their respective roles.

Talking about the music of the film, ‘Badhaaiyan Tenu’ is the best among all the songs and it attracts a lot. ‘Saajan Bade Senti’ is average but presented quite well. ‘Naina Na Jodden’ is quite heartwarming but doesn’t make much impact, the romantic song is not that strong. ‘Morni Banke’ plays in the end credits and well. Abhishek Arora’s background score is amusing which adds to the mischievous vibe and it is in perfect harmony with the film.

Sanu John’s cinematography is apt. The production design of Ratheesh UK is of the highest quality. Kaushik’s house looks very authentic. The costumes of Keerti Kolvankar and Maria Tharkan, especially those worn by the lead couple, attracts attention. Dev Rao Jadhav’s editing could have been crisper at some places.

Overall, Badhaai Ho is not a comedy packed film but it turns out to be a family entertainer with emotions. This film brings a smile to your face. At the box office, the film will attract a large number of families due to the benefit of the extended weekend. It is definitely time to say ‘Congratulations’ to the makers and investors of the film.
