Fun, frolic & romance
Badrinath Ki Dulhania
Cast: Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Gauahar Khan, Mohit Marwah, Aakanksha Singh
Jhansi meets Kota in a bubble of rustic romance that’s somewhat better and chirpier than Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. In both cases, the dulhaniya is Alia Bhatt who holds not just Humpty but also Badrinath by the beat of their heart.
Here, as a Woman’s Day special, she delivers a message against domesticating career-oriented women and she does so with a lot of zing. She looks effervescent, for once has got the accent right though its more Bihari than UP. She sports a naturalese that’s becoming and gives you a hundred reasons to love her just as passionately as her Badri does.
Varun Dhawan as a hurtling chhotey shehr ka chhora, high on his male chauvinistic father’s wealth, complements Alia in every which way.
The director has kept the ambience full of fun and frolic and it is the laughs that take you along even when the film dashes into the designer environs of Singapore, which incidentally has been shot in a picture perfect manner.
The film is a light, enjoyable romance with ditties that you don’t mind being thrown at you. The mindsets are altered here but with a lot of finesse.
Go for it even if you are not a Varun Dhawan fan.
