The film begins with a hilarous take on assets and liabilities before it plunges into the plot which is sprinkled with crisp narrative and witty lines. However, things take a slow turn post interval as the screenplay begins to meander here and there with a lack of focus. You know how the film is going to end but it's some flavoursome romance, terrific performances and a story with its heart at the right place that manages to leave you with a smile as you walk out of the theatre hall.
Varun Dhawan as the Jhansi boy is the heart and soul of Badrinath Ki Dulhania. His infectious charm coupled with a striking vulnerability and impeccable comic timing sweeps you completely off the feet. He is no Mr Goody and has his own inner conflicts to solve. But that's exactly what draws you more towards him. You feel and fall for his Badri. To sum it up, one of his lines from the film says it the best- 'Humse koi chidd jaaye, aisa toh ho nahi sakta'.
Badrinath Ki Dulhania has its own set of flaws. But, it's the Dhawan boy (a brownie point for him) who wins over your hearts with his beguiling performance and makes you forgive the makers for it. Go for it if you are looking for some laughs, breeze and a story with its heart at the right place!
