Badhaai Ho Movie Review: The Chaos Of Spreading Good News
Badhaai Ho Movie Review: Ayushmann Khurana has a knack of choosing offbeat subjects in most of his films and this time he has definitely proven it right time and again. The film is directed by Amit Sharma and produced by Vineet Jain.
Most of us have been following a remote-controlled pattern set by the society like get married at 25, have kids a year later and finally retire at 60. But in today's generation, this rule seems to be outdated as many are tend to explore themselves. Badhaai Ho explores the regressive mindset of a middle-class society in India.
Set in suburbs of Lodhi Road, Delhi where Nakul Kaushik (Ayushmann Khurrana) is happy with his life ranging from his job, parents Jeetender (Gajraj Rao) and Priyamvada (Neena Gupta), younger brother Ghullan (Shardul Rana) and his girlfriend Renee (Sanya Malhotra). His life seems perfect but it is not actually as a bomb is going to explode now.
The bomb happens to be the unexpected pregnancy of Nakul's mom which brings multiple chaos in their family. This invites the taunts of his grandmom (Surekha Sikri) who has found out that the sex life between Mr and Mrs Kaushik is still active at a tender age. More than that, Nakul's buddies also add insult to injury when he is given every basic teasing remark ranging from the "Baby On Board" sticker and many other embarrassing remarks you can think of.
Ayushmann has completely blended into an urban guy who works 9-to-5 in a workplace. He has managed to keep that same track record which he maintained in his previous films like Vicky Donor and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan which revolved around taboo subjects.
Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta are the main highlights of the film and they are giving most of the elderly to young couples relationship goals and also restoring our faith in love as well. Neena Gupta’s sarcastic comment to Sonam Kapoor in Veere Di Wedding has counter-attacked her in this one.
The music of the film is quite refreshing and situational especially Badhaiyaan Tenu and Morni Banke. Morni Banke can be used frequently in wedding functions for dance performances.
The chemistry between Ayushmann Khurrana and Sanya Malhotra seems quite fresh and breezy. Their romantic moments meet a lot of interruptions in-between but they will surely keep you laughing out loud.
Overall get ready to go ROFL this festive weekend.
