Badhaai Ho


A Delhi resident middle class family of Ayushmann Khurrana believes in typical middle class values & they don’t talks much about love(read: SEX). While Nakul(Ayushmann Khurrana) & Reene(Sanya Malhotra) loves each other & trying to setting their life, a news from Nakul’s Father (played by Gajraj Rao) came that a new guest is coming in their home & Nakul’s mother (Neena Gupta) is pregnant at her middle age marriage life. Nakul & his family including his grandmother (Surekha Sikri) are so embarrassed by this news. Now what will Nakul & his family do to face this situation? You have to watch this.

Screenplay & Direction

“Badhaai ho” screen play is written by Akshat Ghildial who is not so famous, probably this is his first big work but he has done excellent job in screen writing. Most of the scenes are written like, you personally feel that moment. Director Amit Sharma has also done a good job in the field of direction. He has made “Tever” before this & he hasn’t been very successful but in this film he grabs the attention of viewers. Lead thing of this film is the different topic that chosen by producers.

Cinematography & Editing

There isn’t much work the cinematographer Sanu Varghese has but each & every frame is perfect which is needed for the scene. Some part of “Merath” & “Delhi” seems well but not that much. Editor Dev rao has done fabulous job in editing of the movie. Two parts are also well divided equally. There isn’t any unnecessary part or moment in this film & that is the biggest achievement of the editor.


In this type of topics, the first choice of the lead actor from Producers & Casting director is definitely Ayushmann Khurrana because he proves himself in this type of other flicks like Vicky Donor, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Barely Ki Barfi etc. This year will be very successful for him after the critically acclaimed “Andhadhun”. He is in full form in each & every scenes. Sanya malhotra has also done well in her part but not as like as “Pataakha” & “Dangal”. Other than Ayushmann & Sanya, lead pair of the movie is “Gajraj Rao” “Neena Gupta”. They have played their characters above the expectations. Expression from Gajraj Rao is eye catcher & emotions by Neena Gupta are marvelous. Despite of all these, one more character is the backbone of this film is Surekha Sikri, what a magnificently she proves herself in the role of Hitler Dadi. She has done also comedy scenes very fluently.  Shardul Rana has also done good job in the role of Ayushmann’s brother.


Music is not good part of the film but not a bad part also. All the songs are situation base & background score is also played it’s part. One song “Morni Banke” is loved to listen by listeners & already a chart number in Radio.

Overall Verdict

This film is new for the movie lovers. The topic or concept that makers has chosen is the main hero of the film. You will get all the things which you expect from this. In first half you will get lots of laughter & in second half you will get emotions & true values of family that Ayushmann & other family members realize. Love of Ayushmann & Sanya is a secondary part but Love of Gajraj & Neena gets an importance more than others. In overall this is a full family entertainer with some good massages. If you want something new & different so this is for you.
