So is the lead pair, whom we’ve seen in the same boat in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaiya: in this second instalment of what looks like a franchise, they are sharper, more vivid, and better attuned to each other.
What’s also nice is that they are given flaws (nothing too serious, and nothing which cannot be addressed by the end of the film, but clearly there all the same), making them relatable.
Badrinath Ki Dulhania movie cast: Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Gauahar Khan, Shweta Basu Prasad, Rituraj Singh, Sahil Vaid, Aparshakti Khurrana Badrinath Ki Dulhania movie director: Shashank Khaitan Badrinath Ki Dulhania movie rating: 3 The moment you see the film is set in Jhansi, you know that sooner or later, there will be a line involving a certain legendary queen known for her valour.
Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya beats the drums for its women, loud and clear; sometimes a tad too loudly and clearly, but that’s okay, because it’s that kind of film.
A couple of times, the film’s let’s hear-it-for-the-ladies comes off as a simplistic flourish.
But overall, the film works as a flavoursome romance with a pair which grows into each other, and with each other.
I’m happy to cheer any film which tacks on the word ‘respect’ with ‘love’, and does a climactic take-down of patriarchy, even if its all broad brush-strokey and dialogue heavy.
In 2015, United Nations' Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that target a range of International development outcomes such as access to water, sanitation, maternal and child health etc gave way to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).It is the kind of mainstream film which wants to shift the goal-post of how ‘heroes’ and heroines’ are constructed and presented, without being too radical, but making clear, at the same time, that some elements will be deployed differently. And I smiled through much of the film, as we are meant to.The moment you see Badri (Varun Dhawan) and Vaidehi (Alia Bhatt) meet-cute in a wedding, you know where they are headed.If you are bored with our free porn movies then why not have a blast in our wicked cam section? Lots of horny chicks are ready to do whatever you desire! His ‘tenth class pass’, uncomfortable-with-Engliss-brashness rubbing up against her ‘padhi-likhi’ ambitions creates the outlines for their romance, and because it’s Jhansi, we know that she will be the Rani, and he will be her Raja.
