By Supriya Nair

Badrinath Ki Dulhania is the second instalment of a franchise that began with Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. But I have to say that it has surpassed it and HOW! Badrinath (Varun Dhawan) is a typical small town UP boy who is proud of his wealthy family lineage despite being uneducated. He meets Vaidehi (Alia Bhatt) at a wedding and immediately sets his heart on her. Badri will stop at nothing to win her over and marry her, but the young girl dreams of becoming an air-hostess and wants to be more than just someone's 'dulhania'. With her aspirations to touch the sky and his efforts to convince her to marry him, the rest of the plot revolves around Badri's journey of understanding someone else's perspective for a change.

Varun and Alia have come a long way from Student of the Year. And even though they don't have a single kissing scene in the film, their chemistry is palpable. Initially Varun's tough guy act with his heavy UP accent might seem preposterous, but as the film progresses he manages to win you over. Alia Bhatt is impressive right throughout and won't give you a single reason to complain.

The film is a rom-com in the truest sense with several doses of laughter at regular intervals. Sahil Vaid who plays Badri's best friend in the film is a delight to watch. His comic timing is impeccable and perfectly compliments Varun's character on screen. All the other supporting actors including Shweta Basu Prasad, Aparshakti Khurana, Aakanksha Singh and Yash Sinha are commendable performers and take the story forward. There are certain instances where it does get a tad too dramatic, but that's only a sign that it's a Dharma Productions film.

The Verdict - Shashank Khaitan has yet again delivered a massy entertainer with a very pertinent social message. Badrinath Ki Dulhania is definitely a one time watch paisa vasool film.
