Besides Rajkummar and Bhumi, the entertainer also boasts an ensemble cast featuring talented actors like Seema Pahwa, Sheeba Chadha, Chum Darang, Lovleen Mishra, Nitish Pandey, and Shashi Bhushan, amongst others essaying pivotal roles.
Part of a franchise, with the first being Badhaai Ho, this one explores a new jodi.
Badhaai Do promises the same comical ride of finding humour in unexpected places as Badhaai Ho. While Badhaai Ho told us what hilarious situations a middle-aged couple’s love could lead to, Badhaai Do seems to address another unusual relationship and tell their story through a comedy of error situations. Of course, where there is marriage and comedy, there is a baby.
Check out the trailer, which has hit over 21 million views!
Shardul is the only male-child born after a long line of female offspring in his family. To add to this tragedy, he is surrounded by women at work, too – being the only male cop. However, when Suman Singh, a school PT teacher, comes to him to file a harassment complaint, Shardul’s life takes a different turn altogether. This boy-meets-girl situation turns into an opportunity for both to ease out the shared societal and family pressure of marriage, and they both decide to enter a marriage of convenience.
Getting into a marriage of convenience and living as roommates leads to humorous situations between the pair, making this one a perfect rom-com with a twist… We think. It is not only high on comedy and emotions, but this family drama also deals with a socially relevant subject that we got a glimpse of in the trailer. While not much has been revealed, the topic of the film subtly highlights the concept of “lavender marriage,” making it a must-watch.
The film we hear also offers some incredible music. In fact, we got a sneak listen with songs in the trailer that are composed by Amit Trivedi, Tanishk Bagchi, Ankit Tiwari & Khamosh Shah. The lyrics have been given by Varun Grover, Vayu, Anurag Bhumia, Azeem Shirazi & Anvita Dutt.
Junglee Pictures ‘Badhaai Do’ is directed by Harshavardhan Kulkarni, written by Akshat Ghildial and Suman Adhikary.
Badhaai Do releases on 11th February in theaters and is theatrically distributed worldwide by Zee Studios.
