Badrinath Ki Dulhania Movie
Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya: Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt demonstrate impeccable chemistry and thumbs up performance
The first thing to know about Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya is that it is the second installment of a romantic comedy franchise started with Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya in 2014. Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt are kept in lead roles and it seems that they both are looking for another romantic hit of their career.
Story of the movie is simple. Badrinath Bansal (Varun Dhawan) meets Vaidehi Trivedi (Alia Bhatt) in a marriage and falls for her but Vaidehi isn’t interested in love. She’s big dreams in her eyes and she’s planning to become an air-hostess. She’s tall, beautiful and educated and ready to fulfill her dreams. But Badri wants her to marry first. Stung by a love bug, Badri can’t think of life without Vaidehi. He insists on that Vaidehi accepts his proposal. The biggest drama in the movie is their families. These typical patriarchal families are dowry happy and they don’t consider love as prerequisite for marriage.
The love story is mixed with family drama that is typical north Indian. The boy Badrinath Bansal belongs to a rich family from Jhansi but the girl Vaidehi Trivedi belongs to a middle class family – in other words not in the position to fulfill dowry demand of the groom’s family. But the first thing is that the girl isn’t accepting love proposal of the boy.
Varun Dhawan presents romantic image of a stalker-lover and pursues Alia Bhatt with his style. The north Indian touch can be felt in language and dressing. Also the suiting location supports the story. It is a great mix of romance with typical north India family values that support dowry.
Soundtracks of the movie have already become a hit especially the “Tamma Tamma” song originally composed by Bappi Lahiri for 1980 movie Thanedaar. The song is recreated by Tanishk Bagchi for Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya.

It is a very colorful poster that has a high mansion probably a fort in background and the lead actors dancing at the front.
