Badrinath Ki Dulhania

Finally, after a long time, I liked a Hindi Romantic comedy. From the very first line only you can guess how happy I am to tell you all that we still have hope left in the rom-com affairs. Made on the lines of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania but trust me it is more fresh and meatier than the last Varun-Alia outing. The film never was marketed as a plot-heavy one before the release and when you see something apart from the formulaic glitz, glamor, and fun, it feels great. The topics like dowry and female empowerment are not new ones but yes in a rom-com that too with terrific mainstream performances, it is novel at least in Bollywood. The story begins with the usual boy meeting the girl in a Shaadi but then you start to fall in love with the characters not only the lead ones but also the able supporting casts and that’a where a rom-com excels.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania

Yes, you can say something good in mainstream cinema, this proves Badrinath Ki Dulhania and that’s what we all want. The best thing about the film is Alia Bhatt, she delivers yet another terrific performance as Vadehi, this girl is just too good, she fits into every role and delivers. You are going to fall in love with her confident portrayal once again. Varun Dhawan as Badri is also in top form and gives us a glimpse of Govinda few times during the film but he really entertains and is an honest performer. The chemistry between the two is fabulous.

Sahil Vaid who plays the part of Varun’s best friend is clap worthy and evokes maximum laughter, there are scenes where he enhanced the impact on his own. Shashank Khaitan’s direction is very good though his writing is formulaic but the actors make up for that big time. Songs are good, dances are massy and cinematography of Neha Parti Matiyani is of course very pleasing. I found Badri a cool, fresh and progressive rom-com and a nice festive release to watch, enter the theater with no expectations and come out laughing and also after shedding few tears. Go with family and enjoy, 3.5 stars from my side.
