The plot is different and unique of a middle aged couple Priyamvada Kaushik (Neena Gupta) and Jeetender Kaushik (Gajraj Rao) who get unexpectedly pregnant. The problem is that they have a marriable son Nakul (Ayushmann Khurrana) and second son Gullar (Shardul Rana) who is giving his board exams. Above all, the father Jitu is nearing retirement.
The best thing about this movie is focus on the romantic side of middle aged couple Priyamvada Kaushik (Neena Gupta) and Jeetender Kaushik (Gajraj Rao) rather than son Nakul (Ayushmann Khurrana) and his love interest Reene (Sanya Malhotra). The situational comedy works very well and keeps one entertained from start to finish. Though the climax will make one feel emotional.
Surekha Sikri, who plays the dadi, gives good support to the lead actors. Though she is old fashioned, but she is too good when speaking about her bahu with a baby bump. Badhaai Ho promises a novel experience, with good tracks like Badhaiyaan Tenu’, ‘Naina Na Jodeen’ and ‘Sajan Bade Senti’ which fit in the movie perfectly. Though the plot is pretty simple, but the writing is detailed. Everyone have performed well. My rating is 4/5. Highly recommended.
