BADHAAI HO (2018)

Neena Gupta: She is excellent in her portrayal of the unsettled mother.

Gajraj Rao: His performance is the best thing about ‘Badhaai Ho’. In fact, he steals every scene that he’s a part of. Just his body language, mannerisms and expressions are enough to make you laugh out loud.

Ayushmann Khurrana: He is in top form, playing the son who feels the brunt of the social pressure

STORY: A middle-aged couple Priyamvada Kaushik (Neena Gupta) and Jeetender Kaushik (Gajraj Rao) get unexpectedly pregnant. The couple from a middle-class family starts feeling conscious about the pregnancy, as they become a talking point in their social circles. Even their sons Nakul (Ayushmann Khurrana) and Gullar (Shardul Rana) grapple to cope with the situation that they are in because they believe…Yeh bhi koi mummy papa ke karne ki cheez hai?

CINEMATOGRAPHY: Good

SCREENPLAY: Engaging

DIRECTION: Even though the story has a limited scope, the detailed writing, the finesse of Sharma’s direction and some unforgettable performances, make this film an absolute winner.

Badhaai Ho (2018): ‘Badhaai Ho’, much like its subject, puts a fantastic new spin on the usual. In a new-age rom-com, you’d expect Ayushmann and Sanya’s love story to take centre stage, but when you see the middle-aged parents blush with romance, the entertainment really becomes novel.
