Light-hearted, fun, nice- that was the feel when you walked out of the theatre after watching Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. Well, the feeling doesn't change pretty much with the next instalment, Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya. It has most of the fun elements that its previous part had (and they are in no way connected as you would have already understood), but there is also a very strong message about gender bias and a few societal evils that are still prevalent in the mane of tradition!
Varun plays Badrinath Bansal, the UP ka launda who considers himself to be the 'sabse bada mard of Jhansi'! He is off to attend a wedding in Kota, where he meets the strong and beautiful Vaidehi Trivedi! He falls in love and proposes marriage, she says no! But his pursuits continue. Yes, like all other Bollywood movies, Vaidehi does become Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya. BUT, and there is a big but there, there is a lot of twists and turns that are pleasantly different and good! The difference is such that I guess 'Vaidehi Ka Dulha' could have been a more suitable title of the movie.
The performances were 'lallantop'! Alia and Varun sizzle once again. But let me tell you this that there is not much of the 'jodi' factor here. They give excellent perform as two actors but there is little about the Jodi, though whenever they appear together in the second half, it spells magic. Alia fits perfectly into the role of Vaidehi who is not just beautiful (an adjective that is considered the best compliment for women), but is strong-willed, ambitious and unstoppable. She does not look for love, but for respect and that is what I felt was the best trait about her character.
The film is about the coming of age of Badri and Varun does justice to the character. He changes from the man who does not understand the meaning of 'no' to a compassionate human being who can respect the other person.
The side characters are adorable too. They cumulatively deliver a powerful punch and helps keep the movie go smoothly. And even the cameos were impressive!
From the music to the choreography or the cinematography, the film is good. It is total paisa vasool, typical Bollywood movie with naach-gaana, comedy and romance. You should definitely go and watch the movie, at least once. You might just want to book another ticket too. The best part is how the movie seamlessly gives you a message even though it is light and fun. So I will give it 3 stars for the endeavour and the performances.
