Bad­haai Ho: A pro­gres­sive, un­con­ven­tional, quirky tale

Hindustan Times (Gurugram) - City - - FRONT PAGE -

The trailer of Bad­haai Ho star­ring Ayushmann Khurrana and Sanya Mal­ho­tra in lead roles, has made a promis­ing first im­pres­sion. Di­rec­tor Amit Ravin­der­nath Sharma’s fam­ily com­edy presents an un­con­ven­tional story on parental preg­nancy laced with hi­lar­i­ous one-lin­ers. Nu­anced per­for­mances by Ayushmann’s on-screen fam­ily, Ga­jraj Rao, Neena Gupta, Surekha Sikri and Shardul Rana was lapped up by the au­di­ences.

A source from the pro­duc­tion re­veals, “Bad­haai Ho is pre­sented by Jun­glee Pic­tures, whose pre­vi­ous fam­ily com­edy Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017) was also ap­plauded by the au­di­ence. Ayushmann con­tin­ues his tryst with taboo sub­jects with this film, which is a quirky, pro­gres­sive tale of a Del­hibased fam­ily, where the news of mother, in her late for­ties, get­ting preg­nant shocks the en­tire fam­ily.”

Trade an­a­lyst Taran Adarsh says, “I loved the con­cept of the film and es­pe­cially Ayush­man­nSanya’s fresh pair­ing. It’s a se­ri­ous is­sue han­dled hu­mor­ously. Ayushmann has been mak­ing some great choices right from the be­gin­ning of his ca­reer, be it Vicky Donor (2012), Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015), Shubh Man­gal Saavd­han (2017), and now Bad­haai Ho. He is se­lect­ing sto­ries that defy the stereo­type or is­sues we brush un­der the car­pet.”

Trade an­a­lyst Va­jir Singh of Box Of­fice In­dia adds, “Bad­haai Ho seems clut­ter­break­ing with its fun con­cept. Go­ing by the trailer, we have a win­ner in our hands.”

De­vang Sam­pat, di­rec­tor of Cinépo­lis, says, “Bad­haai Ho looks like a clear win­ner. We have re­ceived an over­whelm­ing re­sponse at all 350 screens on the trailer and it has cre­ated im­mense an­tic­i­pa­tion for the film.”

Pro­duced by Vi­neet Jain, Aleya Sen, He­mant Bhan­dari and Amit Ravin­der­nath Sharma and co-pro­duced by Priti Sha­hani in as­so­ci­a­tion with Chrome Pic­tures, Bad­haai Ho re­leases on Oc­to­ber 19.
