BADHAAI HO movie Story
The movie takes you straight into the middle-class Kaushik household which is set in a modest neighbourhood in Delhi. The patriarch Jeetender (played by Gajraj Rao) is a ticket checker with the railways who doesn’t believe in being a spend-thrift. He is a doting hubby to his wife Priyamvada (Neena Gupta) and also a pacifier when his mother (Surekha Sikri) spews acidic words at her. The Kaushik clan also includes his sons, Nakul (Ayushmann Khurrana) and his younger brother Gullar.
Things take an awkward turn when the parents to two adult boys (one of them is of marriageable age), get pregnant out of the blue. ‘Yeh bhi koi mummy papa ke karne ki cheez hai?, quips Nakul to his girlfriend Renee (Sanya Malhotra) when they are in the midst of a makeout session. On the other hand, Gullar too isn’t excited about the arrival of ‘chota mehmaan’. Meanwhile, daadi wonders, ‘Time kahan se mil gaya tujh ko’. What follows next is how the Kaushik household try to cope with the typical ‘log kya kahegey’ and its effect on Nakul’s relationship with Renee.
Priyamvada realizes she is pregnant. She finds it sinful to abort the child. Jeetu announces Priyamvada’s third pregnancy to the family. The two sons get embarrassed and start to avoid their parents, friends and society. Their grandma is also shocked and upset.The news becomes viral and they are made fun of by family, friends, relatives, and society. Nakul begins to avoid Renee. Jeetu and Priyamvada ask Nakul and Gullar to accompany them to Meerut for their cousin’s wedding. Both of them refuse by making excuses. This makes Jeetu angry at them and he leaves with his wife and mother. Meanwhile, Renee offers a room date to cheer Nakul up. But he is unable to get intimate with her as it reminds him of his mom’s pregnancy. Sangeeta gets to know about Nakul’s mom’s pregnancy from Renee. She is shocked and speaks ill about the Kaushik family. Nakul overhears this and behaves rudely with Sangeeta, and breaks up with Renee.

BADHAAI HO movie REVIEW
Middle-class families are often riddled with their own set of values and social systems. While pregnancy and motherhood are celebrated, subjects like sex and romance are talked about with a degree of embarrassment and awkwardness. The concept of ‘Badhaai Ho’, where a quintessential Delhi couple; parents to two adult boys (one of them is of marriageable age), get pregnant out of the blue, is just the sort of subject that can ruffle-up feathers within the middle-class family system. Yet, this dramedy, based on children feeling terribly embarrassed by the outcome of their parents’ mid-age romance; with outsiders joining in the criticism, conveys some really progressive thoughts. The situational humour of ‘Badhaai Ho’ is complimented perfectly, by striking performances from Gajraj Rao, Neena Gupta and Ayushmann Khurrana. This film is as funny as it is liberal. The conversation around the fact that romance and passion have nothing to do with age, make this film a stand out for many reasons.
The Kaushiks live in Delhi’s Lodhi colony, a run-of-the-mill setting, where family affairs can tumble into the next home through adjoining balconies and windows. So, when Jeetender and his wife Priyamvada find out about their unexpected pregnancy, the news spreads like wildfire. Neighbours get curious, but the knee-jerk reactions come from members of the Kaushik household. The two sons are shocked by the fact that their parents still have an active love life (read: sex life), while the grandmom (Surekha Sikri) is appalled by the news, too. Steering clear of clichés and stereotypes, the writing of Shantanu Srivastava and Akshat Ghildial brings in some genuinely likeable moments. The way the parents break the news to their family is hilarious. Priyamvada’s colony friends feel happy for her, while her own children are almost left red-faced by the news. The on-screen romance between the parents, replete with 80s and 90s romantic songs playing in the background, is absolutely endearing. The well-crafted dialogues add to the hilarity of the situations.
