Badhaai Ho is a clean family entertainer which also is a tight slap at the mentality of certain people which unfortunately still exists.

What’s Good: Following a similar pattern as Stree, the movie relies on its refreshingly hilarious one-liners (By Akshat Ghildial), nailing the expressions more than the full-body-act each character speaks even when they aren’t saying anything!
What’s Bad: Despite everything going its way, the one line story drags at places because of its monotonous attempt at saying a thing that everyone already knows!
This madcap family will not let you go anywhere while they’re on screen.
Watch or Not?: A BIG FAT YES! Anyway my review will provoke you for the same but in in case if you’re not reading it ahead, book your tickets NOW!
Gone are the days when you had Barjatya-esque families full with shuddh desi sanskaars for whom the word ‘sex’ was equal to a cuss word. Now we’ve families like Kapoor & Sons, Mehras (Dil Dhadakne Do), Banerjees (Piku) & joining this latest trend is our cute Kaushiks. Priyamvada is the mother of the family, a kind who emotionally blackmails her son to play Housie with her kitty party friends. Nakul (Ayushmann Khurrana) as every other son, is annoyed by his mother but loves her to the core.
Nakul has a sweet girlfriend in Renne (Sanya Malhotra) and a pretty ordinary brother in Gullar. Father-cum-Gulzar Jitendra aka Jeetu (Gajraj Rao) impregnates his wife Priyamvada and that’s where our story starts. This initiates the entire phase of ‘Log kya kahenge?’ and Nakul starts ignoring his colleagues, friends as well as Renne. The story revolves around the 9 months of pregnancy and how the family faces issues from the so-called developing society.
