    Indian Middle-Class Family system has its own set of values and morals. Though it was very common 30-50 years back, these days a couple getting pregnant when they already have two adult sons is going to be an embarrassment and awkward to the family, at least as per Director of this movie.

    This movie has delivered striking performances from Gajraj Rao, Neena Gupta, and Ayushmann Khurrana. This film is as funny as it is liberal and the Humor carried by the lead roles is very good. This film is unique and stands out for its core message that Romance and Love and has no age attached to them.

    Very Good Direction by Amit Ravindernath Sharma

    Director Amit Ravindernath Sharma done a fantastic Role by putting the focus on Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta, unusual to movies these days which focus on only lead roles which often are young people. Romantic moments of roles played by these Senior Actors are the key high lights of the movie. Gajraj Rao’s performance is the best thing in ‘Badhaai Ho’ and Neena Gupta’s Performance is excellent in her portrayal of an unsettled mother.

    The way the parents break the news to their family is hilarious. The writers Shantanu Srivastava and Akshat Ghildial brought in some genuinely likable moments in the movie Steering clear the stereotypes.

    Ayushman played the role of one of the Sons and Reene (Sania Malhotra) as his girlfriend.

    Rating: 4.5/5
