This Varun-Alia chemistry flick has moments that makes it a one time watch.
10 March 2017 | by oazamSee all my reviews

Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania was a light film that has some good and bad moments. Technically, so for this film. I'd say trailer looked like it was edited the way Mohenjo Daro's trailer was edited which made it a bit underwhelming. But seeing Alia Bhatt improving, I still had to see this motion picture at the theaters.

So this movie evolves around a boy named Badrinath Bansal a.k.a Badri who is a slacker in search for a bride and is a Jhansi who lives under his father rules. His life turns around when he meets Vaidehi at a Rajasthani-style wedding. Vaidehi is a career oriented woman who is an air hostess. Badri's lack of education and flirtation annoys Vaidehi but later they develop feelings for each other and that is basically your movie.

Based on the mediocre trailer, I felt that this film was going to be disappointing but quite frankly it's pretty nice and light warming. I found this slightly better than Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania

The acting was okay.

Alia Bhatt as usual was charming as always and her performance highlighted every possible aspect of love and prosperity.

Varun Dhawan does make me laugh sometimes but his comedic performance proved that he was just there and couldn't do much justice to the movie than I was expecting but he was good in some parts.

The logic fail with Rituraj Singh was that he looked too young to play the father of Badri.

The writing is decent I would say. The gripping romantic factors are as high as Shashank Khaitan's writing. The story was nice in the beginning which described the characters descriptively but heavily drops post-interval which makes the ending too dialoguebaazi in such ways.

There were too many vintage movie dialogues like the ones in 90s Govinda movies.

The music is whelming in my opinion. Tamma Tamma's remake was crass and had some good touches which made the song very melodious. The title song was also nice but the slow songs didn't stand out as much as these 2 other songs because that took up some time during the movie.

The directions looks very genuine as if Rohit Shetty was making this movie and not Shashank Khaitan. The camera angles were quite sloppy and the editing was a bit crisp and inconsistent which made the movie too unrealistic to watch at times..

Overall, I liked Badrinath Ki Dulhania with its decent performances, average writing, and light warming music but with horrible direction and less crisp editing. I would recommend this movie on a one-time watch quotient.

Enjoy your Friday with this movie if you're really craving an Alia Bhatt movie.

3.5/5- KJo on a great move with Dharma Productions
