Badrinath ki dulhania is a story of pride and prejudice actually where Badrinath is seaking an emblematic kind of bride and Vaidehi on the other hand is pursuing a self-determining life. Ultimately, together they got to break the traditions and reinvent their roles.
Review: Badrinath ki Dulhania is a knapsack full of hot social issues handled prudently with bewildered Dharma gloves. Here the word ‘handled’ is sort of operative word exploited in small and male dominant towns like Kota and Jhansi. In these towns Patriarchal system is self-evident and as clear as day. The movie set a beam focus on Badrinath, a sahukar’s son who’s pursuing a bride of his dream and spots ultimately on Vaidehi, dramatically, on a wedding ceremony and starts enticing her. Finally, Vaidehi, by breaking all the so called social pressure and social norms tied the knot with Badrinath.
Her character is pervasive and mainstay of the story. She is beautifully drawn back and appears back in the scene.
The story has an obvious climax, rises and falls, suspense and thrilling moments, so it takes moments in flowing two and half hours and you don’t feel uncomfortable. The ambiance of the movie and back to back comical lines should get you through it.
Varun Dhawan coupled with Alia Bhatt are the great combination that ever happened to cinema screens.
