Badhaai Ho

Badhaai Ho Movie Review Rating: 3.5/5 Stars (Three and half stars)

Star Cast: Surekha Sikri, Ayushmann Khurrana, Gajraj Rao, Neena Gupta, Sanya Malhotra, Rahul Tewari, Sheeba Chaddha

Director: Amit Ravindernath Sharma

What’s Good: Following a similar pattern as Stree, the movie relies on its refreshingly hilarious one-liners (By Akshat Ghildial), nailing the expressions more than the full-body-act each character speaks even when they aren’t saying anything!

What’s Bad: Despite everything going its way, the one line story drags at places because of its monotonous attempt at saying a thing that everyone already knows!

Loo Break: This madcap family will not let you go anywhere while they’re on screen.

Watch or Not?: A BIG FAT YES! Anyway, my review will provoke you for the same but in case if you’re not reading it ahead, book your tickets NOW!

User Rating:  A middle-income Railway Ticket Collector lives in New Delhi with his spouse, two grown-up children and his mother. News breaks out that his wife is pregnant which comes like a shock to the entire family. To top it they also have to deal with social embarrassment – friends, relatives, neighbors, everyone’s gaze is now turned towards the Kaushik household. It is the elder son, Nakul, in particular, wasn’t really looking forward to this new addition to the family. What follows is a phase of resentment and emotional confusion for Nakul as he also goes through ups-and-downs in his relationship with his upper-class girlfriend, Renee. Torn between public embarrassment and love for his family, especially his mother, Nakul tries to come to terms with the idea of his parents’ active sex life and the idea of family itself.
