As I went for the first day first show of the movie, #BadrinathKiDulhania I did not expect a packed theatre, but, was astounded to be greeted with a line outside the auditorium. I was more than excited to treat my eyes with the cute couple, Varun Dhawan & Alia Bhatt. Let me tell you, the two of them have nailed the Karan Johar produced humorous flick with their natural acting (a perfect fitting oxymoron!).
To begin with, they had promoted the movie, with open hearts, with Alia calling herself BKD (#BadriKiDulhania for you!). Not to forget, the modern dance moves in the peppy track #TammaTamma recreated, which I try to imitate, the moment I see it on screens! Surely, the movie is an entertainer for the young and throbbing but, it is somewhat predictable and in bits and pieces reminds me of the hard-on-contemporaries 'Hindi serials'! Somewhere, Ekta Kapoor was someone I recalled. *Tongue-in-cheek*
A sequel of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, BKD will be equally loved by Varun and Alia fans.
Girls being referred to as a liability and boys always, an asset, NO MATTER WHAT! Let me tell you, throughout the movie, you will wear a smile on your face for the witty replies, and you will feel as if this is what just happened with me! Yes, it has this connect!
And, is the available guy! His dad is looking for an educated but willing to be a housewife kind of a girl for his son. Which, we are quite sure, is difficult to find today! And here begins the drama in the movie.
Until she flees from her own wedding. Now, this was a brave move by the girl. She did this despite her love for her groom, Badri!
What else you need when you have a friend who leaves no stone unturned to be with you! This was Sahil as Somdev in #BadriKiDulhania for you. Giving a hilarious angle since inception, he starts his business "ChutkiMeShaadi.com", to get the perfect matches.
Be it #TammaTamma or #BadriKiDulhania or #AashiqSurrenderHua, all three of them have been on the loop and will be on the loop. Not to forget, Humsafar and Roke Na Ruke Naina, which tugged at my heartstrings. Can't stop humming them.
Set in a Rajasthani backdrop, with Badri belonging to Jhansi and Vaidehi belonging to Kota, the two meet at a wedding. The dialogue delivery by them is stupendous! Packed with punches every now and then, this is a movie high on conversations. I just loved this one from Badri, "Tum beta kyu banna chahti ho, tum to beti hi kamaal ki ho!" This was point on and addressed every 21st Century girl in India.
They flirt, they fight, they dance, they romance, they give up and they patch up. The two, live the complete movie, fighting with themselves and their families. But, Alia wins hearts when she decides to follow her passion and proves to be a successful air hostess. Something that most of the girls in the Indian society have to do! *Sadness*
This is a difficult one, 'cause the movie is high on humour, but highly predictable, most of the time! So, if you do not have any other plan for the Holi weekend, you can go for it. But it is not a highly-recommended one! Although the endearing jodi is loved by the audience, the movie might not garner well at the box office, because of the obvious plot!
