Script Analysis and Director Review : Director Shashank has given a good script with a strong message that in this day and age when women HV reached at top most level but there are still some people in small towns where still dowry system prevails and daughters are considered as liability whereas sons as asset. The film attempts to change the mentality of such people who do not treat daughters and son equally and don’t give respect to women.The first half is entertaining and there are fun moments. The second half is set in Singapore there are fun moments but the story drags a bit . The music is foot tapping.
Performance : Alia Bhatt as Vaidehi has played her role perfectly. She has given her 100%. She shines as Vaidehi and she has maintained her accent of small town girl throughout the film. She is bold and Confident. Her chemistry with Varun is very strong. Varun as Badri is cute as well as notorious . though he slip s sometimes in maintaining his U.P accent. Overall both are cute together.Sahil Ved as Somdev who plays bestie to Varun is the highlight of the movie. His conversation with badri are hilarious and cute.
Final Word :Badrinath kidulhania can make a fun weekend watch matching with the spirit of holi .
