Badhaai Ho is a coming-of-age story with a touch of laughs and romance. It’s the romance of an elderly couple that might have got the family embarrassed but is sure to tickle your funny bone.
It tackles the tricky subject of middle-age pregnancy. How it affects the whole family, especially two grown up sons, forms the crux of the story.
Directed by Amit Sharma, the film is a comedy family drama starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Sanya Malhotra, Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta in the lead.
Badhaai Ho is a well-written, wholesome, entertaining film, simple and unpretentious, that tackles a serious subject comically, without losing out on entertainment or your attention.

Movie Review: Entertainment Times/Times Of India
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.
Movie Review: Indian Express
The ridiculous extent of Indian hypocrisy around sex, especially middle-aged or, worse, elderly sex, is laid bare in Badhaai Ho, which has to have one of the most unique propositions in Indian cinema: how do you deal with the imminent, wholly unexpected arrival of a ‘nanha mehmaan’, when you have two grown up sons—one in his mid-20s who is about to pop the question to his girl-friend, and the other stepping into testosterone-ruled teenage years—and an old cantankerous mother/ma-in-law?
Movie Review: NDTV
Director Amit Ravindernath Sharma’s Badhaai Ho deserves unstinted kudos. It not only dares to tackle a tricky theme, it does so with laudable finesse.
This film is a worthy addition to the raft of adventurous, sure-handed genre-benders that the Mumbai movie industry has been delivering of late in a welcome rush.
Movie Review: Film Companion
What Badhaai Ho mostly succeeds at – apart from weaving an enjoyable yarn out of this problem – is its ability to identify precisely the kind of homegrown protagonists that need such an intervention.
The Kaushik family is a collection of conservative faces that are, thanks to the clever setup, forced to go from people (society) to person (individual).
The progressive prism of advanced child-bearing is merely a narrative device to realize their rehabilitation.
Movie Review: Bollywood Hungama
Badhaai Ho might seem like a laugh a minute riot from the promos but it’s not.
The funny moments are definitely there but the film also has its share of emotional and touching moments. Hence, keep your expectations right and you’ll surely enjoy the fare.
Movie Review: Miss Malini
Badhaai Ho is a feel good, full on family entertainer that Bollywood was in desperate need of.
We are finally spared of slow-mo walks towards the front door, elders who are holier than thou and long-drawn crying sequences.
None of that involved, we still get a slice-of-life film that starts with a hilarious premise and takes us through some common prejudices that the society harbors.
