Baadhaai Ho is a Bollywood film that released on 18th October 2018 starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Sanya Malhotra with Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao. The meaning of Baadhhai Ho is ‘congratulations’.
When the trailer of the film released, it created a huge trend on many social media platforms and many were waiting for the movie to release and the film did not fail to meet the expectations of the audience. Baddhai Ho was a hit film only because it broke the stereotype and the film focused on something that the Indian society is not used to seeing on a daily basis and if something like that happens what would be the thoughts of the people around us.
In the film, Gajraj Rao played the role of Jeetender Kaushik and Neena Gupta played the role of Mrs. Kaushik and Ayushmann Khurrana played the role of their son Nakul Kaushik. They belong to a middle class family as well. Mrs. Kaushik becomes pregnant in the age of 50’s where she has two grown up children already. This is not something the people of our country witness on a daily basis. The problems, reactions, tantrums the three of them face from their own family members and friends is the entire movie. It also reflects how Nakul faces problems in his love life because of his mother being pregnant.
If this happened in another country we wouldn’t mind, but if something like this happens to a person in our own family or to someone who lives in the next door.. We start minding them then our own business. This is what the film explains as well. This film was a reality check which had a great comedy as well and it is a must watch.
Films like Baadhhai Ho & Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga are the recent movies that have broken the stereotypes with the recent social issues that our nation is seeing today. If you haven’t watched the movie yet, you have to watch it ASAP and if you have watched it what is your take on the movie?
