Badrinath Ki Dulhania Review: Alia Bhatt-Varun Dhawan impressed UAE critics!

Badrinath Ki Dulhania has opened in the theaters in UAE and has got some good reviews from their popular websites, Gulfnews and Both the sites state that the movie is not only about romance but also shares a message about dowry system. Also, both agree that the second half is somewhat weak in comparison to the first half. Here are the direct reviews from the sites.


“Director Shashank Khaitan has displayed impeccable taste in casting in this romantic comedy as he hoists the well-adjusted young actors Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan onto the proverbial horse and hands them the reins. The pair is sparkling as the goofy Badri and the strong-willed Vaidehi. Badri, who belongs to a rich family from Jhansi, falls madly in love with Vaidehi after he meets her at a wedding, but she isn’t interested. She doesn’t beat around the bush and turns his proposal down. The timing of this romantic comedy is also apt. A day after we observed International Women’s Day, we have a heroine who isn’t shy of exercising her right to choose — be it about life or her life partner.  Even morose subjects such as the dowry system, rampant in India, is treated with a deft hand by the director. Without ever turning didactic or intense, Khaitan does a neat job of taking a grim subject and treating it with a light hand. Some of the conversations around taking and giving money to the groom by the bride’s family is dealt with in an adult manner.”

“The film has ample room for humour – the JMD (Jai Mata Di) song for instance or bus conversations between Alia and Varun, where she asks him full forms of IIT, ABS and the difference between simple and compound interest. Some humour is subtle as well such as the scene when the two fathers, played by Swanand Kirkire and Rituraj, meet each other and one compliments the other’s oxygen cylinder. The fight between Badri and his friend Somdev is endearing too – the film is nuanced with these instances and well-chosen moments.

Badrinath… stretches post interval and the much-awaited Tamma Tamma Loge song appears towards the end. The groom-choosing scene didn’t work for me – it was too flighty in a set-up that was real. The film twists towards the end when Badri’s character changes from being totally patriarchal to understanding the challenges of women and then, accosting his father. It ends as being idealistic but takes forward the cause it espouses. Varun is endearing and earnest and shines in the role matching it with Alia’s luminous presence and histrionics.”


Well, let’s wait for reviews from experts of Bollywood in India and audience reviews. The movie is expected to open with the good start of 8-9cr. We wish Best Of Luck to Alia and Varun.
