What happens when a couple in their 50s, in a moment of passion, end up having an unplanned pregnancy? That is the quirky, unusual story of ‘Badhaai Ho’.
Nakul Kaushik (Ayushmann Khurrana) cannot come to terms with the fact that his parents, father Jeetender aka Jeetu (Gajraj Rao) and mother Priyamvada (Neena Gupta) are going to have a third child. Nakul has an adolescent younger brother Gullar (Shardul Rana).
The film centres around the middle-class Kaushik family who live in Lodhi Colony, Delhi.
The movie gets you engrossed in minutes as the couple discover that Priyamvada is 19 weeks into her pregnancy.
Kudos to Ayushmann Khurrana for choosing unconventional scripts and hitting the bull’s eye each time. Be it ‘Vicky Donor’, ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’, ‘Andhadhun’ and now ‘Badhaai Ho’. We can’t wait for his next pick.
Overall, ‘Badhaai Ho’ is a wholesome movie – Amit Sharma takes us on a laugh riot and packs in the right amount of emotional moments that leave a lump in your throat. Don’t miss out on this unlikely family entertainer.
