Badrinath ki Dulhania is a celebration of laughter. Yes! ‘Hilarious’ would still not be able to describe this amazing movie aptly. Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt are of course the centre cast of the movie, but this movie speaks more about ‘Badri’ and ‘Vaidahi’ than these two superstars. In spite of constantly stirring our ticklish nerve, this movie takes numerous satirical digs not at our Indian Institution of Marriage, but at Indian Psychology of Marriage. By calling boy child as an ‘ASSET’ and girl child as a ‘Liability’ this movie takes the theme of comedy-satire to a whole new platform.
- Badri Bansal aka Varun Dhawan is by far the cutest ‘Bansal’ I have ever seen in my entire life. His happydent smile and boyish energy when combines with his U.Pian accent makes you want to pull his cheeks every time he says something stupid. In comparison you might find the character of Badri far more interesting and adorable than the rest of the characters.
- How can you joyously mock ‘dowry ritual’ in marriage? The answer is sucker-punched brilliantly in the first half of the movie.
- One of the main highlights is the amazing dialogues and entertaining one-liners of witticism, parody and desi Indian words.
- The second half of the movie might not be a laughter riot, but it’s that part where you see the actual chemistry of both the characters and the main essence of the movie.
- Alia Bhatt’s wonderful acting and her adaptation of a KOTA girl character, from her clothing to her accent and even at times her expressions is worth appreciation.
For all those people who might guess that it is a sequel to Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania from its promos (I was one of them), trust me! It’s not even close to that. It’s even far..far..far better movie, where hilarity is at its peak. No action scenes or over the top melodrama, neither will you find any villains brooding here and there, all you will find is a beautiful love story that very cleverly bullies ‘dowry’, charmingly promotes women empowerment (especially through Badri), innocently tries to equal the balance between male-female and steals away the heart of its audience.
P.S. – The two top chart songs of this movie comes in the latter half of the movie, that’s little annoying.
