Badhaai Ho Movie Review

Badhaai Ho: Neena Gupta Is The Shining Star Of The Kaushik Family

Badhaai Ho is the kind of comedy movie-fans have been waiting for a long time. It is a simple family-comedy-drama that every middle-class-family can relate with. Also, the subject of the movie is a topic for discussion. The movie is focused on the sex life of an elder couple with two grown-up kids.


Jeetender Kaushik (Gajraj Rao)is a government employee with Indian Railway. He lives with his wife Priyamvada Kaushik (Neena Gupta), two children Nakul Kaushik (Ayushmann Khurrana) and Junaa (Rahul Tewari) and mother as Dadi (grandmother) of the children. Jeetender is an aging father and his elder son Nukul is in love with a beautiful girl Sweety Sharma (Sanya Malhotra). Jeetender and Priyamvada are aging decently until they make a mistake – unsafe sex – that makes Priyamvada pregnant. While there is nothing wrong in enjoying sex but pregnancy at an advanced age is unexpected and unacceptable in society.

Highlight of the movie 

  • The theme of the movie is entirely different – aging with sex
  • The social problems shown are genuine
  • How a middle-class aging couple accepts their sex life is hilarious
  • It is a simple and genuine incident turned into a comic story
