BADHAI HO

October 29, 2018

On strong recommendations from my daughter backed by Avijit Das Patnaik ‘s review published in WordPress few days ago , we decided to check this Hindi  movie out for ourselves .

We were not disappointed . Rather pleased that we accepted the recommendations of these 2 wise guys . Wouldn’ t say that this is the best picture of the year , but certainly one of the better ones that have come our way in recent years .

All the actors play their role to near perfection . Ayushman Khurrana is maturing as a fine actor with great facial expressions . Neena Gupta has certainly come up with her best performance till date. And the good old Surekha Sikri (Dadi of Balika Vadhu fame ) has you laughing in splits with her strong admonitions . The very refreshing and radiant Sanya Malhotra performs pretty well as the hero” s office colleague and love .

But the best applause for acting should be reserved for Indian Railways employee Gajraj Rao as the father placed in a rather piquant situation, with embarrassment changing to pride in the later part of the movie . I especially liked his gesture of making and serving tea [ ginger included ! ] to his unwell wife and ageing mother in the early morning hours ,a lesson for us senior citizens who take their wives for granted .

The picture makes you laugh , it makes you curse those who talk of ” sanskars” and is also successful in making your eyes swell at times , esp. in the absorbing post interval session .

I give this one 4 Stars out of 5 . Do not miss it .

PS: One of those rare occasions when I gave the customary Popcorn box a miss . Just couldn’t adjust myself to paying an exhorbitant Rs 210 for a small packet !!
