Dhawan and Bhatt are surrounded by a bunch of able actors, all of whom are given things to do. Of special note is a terrific act by Sahil Vaid as the Hero’s Best Friend, who bids fair to be the best part of the film. Apart, of course from Alia Bhatt, who manages to pull off a pitch-perfect performance as the ‘dulhaniya’ with a mind and will of her own.
Director Shashank Khaitan, who had an impressive debut in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014), begins coating his otherwise predictable story with funny, ironic plots from here on. If Vaidehi is rebellious, Badri is hot-headed. It’s like walking on a razor’s edge because they need to match steps with the current scenario and also carry the weight of typical, commercial Bollywood.
Badrinath Ki Dulhania Review: Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan-starrer Is an Out and Out ‘Paisa Wasool’ Film. Second film in the franchise, promises to be equally entertaining as the first one. Starring Varun as Badrinath Bansal and Alia as Vaidehi Trivedi, the trailer looks like it’s a modern yet desi take on weddings. Whether it’ll be any different from the previous one – remains to be seen.
