Directed by Shashank Khaitan the story explores the romantic journey of Badrinath Bansal and Vaidehi Trivedi who hail from small towns, meet in a wedding and eventually fall in love. However, with an ever so predictive storyline – Will Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan’s romantic tale surpass the expectations? Here is the Badrinath Ki Dulhania movie review:
Badrinath Bansal hails from Jhansi. He is a ‘happy go lucky guy’ who wears his heart on his sleeves. Cut to Badrinath who meets Vaidehi Trivedi at a wedding and falls in love. Vaidehi who hails from Kota does not want to get into the tam-jham of marriage. But then Badri never takes a no as an answer and he leaves no stone unturned to impress Vaidehi and eventually two of them fall in love. However, there is always a life beyond romantic side and Badrinath Ki Dulhania explores that life. The ideological clash of patriarchal society, the expectations, and the societal norms become a roadblock in Badri and Vaidehi’s love story. The movie dwells on how their love triumph and conquers all the odds.
For starters, the movie also stars Gauahar Khan, Shweta Basu Prasad and Aakanksha Singh. The actors have done a decent job.
