Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan starrer Badrinath Ki Dulhania hit the big screens yesterday and it seems that the movie is doing quite well too. The reviews are out and it looks like Varun-Alia’s pair has spread its magic one more time. Let’s take a look at what the critics have to say about Badrinath Ki Dulhania-
Badrinath Ki Dulhania Movie Review by Shubra Gupta from Indian Express: This Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan-starrer is the kind of mainstream film which shifts how ‘heroes’ and heroines’ are constructed and presented, without being too radical. Given that it is a festive release and produced by Dharma, does so while being extremely entertaining.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania Movie Review by Rohit Vats from Hindustan Times: Badrinath Ki Dulhania remains the breeding ground of love between its two leads. It’s a Dharma film after all. On second thoughts, it works in favor of the film because of Dhawan and Bhatt’s sparkling chemistry.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania Movie Review by Saibal Chatterjee from NDTV: Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan’s film is a pulpy, uneven romantic caper that strives to pass itself off as a mellow tale of patriarchy, love, honor and ambition. Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt deliver energetic performances.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania Movie Review by Nihit Bhave from TOI: Badrinath Ki Dulhania is a rucksack full of radioactive social issues handled cautiously with bedazzled Dharma gloves. But ‘handled’ is the operative word here. Alia’s character is the backbone of this story, too. She’s fierce and real; she’s pushed down but gets back up; she protects her dreams and for once, doesn’t get emotionally manipulated.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania Movie Review by Raja Sen from Rediff: What makes it work, really, is the intent and the two principal actors. Bhatt is as plucky and self-assured as the role demands, playing an intensely focussed girl very aware of her actions. Dhawan, who has the more demanding and dramatic role, nails it.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania Movie Review by Indicine: Badrinath Ki Dulhania is a movie which holds the standard set by Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. It is entertaining, it gives out a social message, it has great performances from the two leads and it holds a nice page throughout the duration of the movie. If you liked the first part, you should definitely check out Badrinath Ki Dulhania. It doesn’t try to outdo or copy the original and that is what makes this sequel unique.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania Movie Review: Our Take
The reviews are quite clear, Badrinath Ki Dulhania is a movie that is made for one sole purpose only- entertainment and it definitely succeeds in doing so. Alia Bhatt has given yet another powerful performance while Varun shines too. Shashank Khaitan, being a total outsider, has proved his mettle and he is one director to look out for. You can go and watch the movie without thinking twice.
