We often watch movies about middle class families staying in a cramped flat and dealing with their daily life challenges. But how often do we deal with the fact that someone’s parents have a healthy sex life? And this is usually confronting for India’s young generation, because who will think of their parents having an active sexual life.
Badhaai Ho, directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma along with three writers, Shantanu Srivastava, Jyoti Kapoor and Akshat Ghildial, is a comic story about a family of five who are dealing with a similar scenario.
The storyline is not just about a guy walking in on his parents ‘doing it’, but the disgust and discomfort that he faces. The story proves a scenario nearly as awkward, but it is so real and warm that viewers will definitely come back for a Part 2, if at all Amit Ravindernath is thinking about the second direction.
The middle aged couple, with grown up sons creates an icky situation for the “Kaushik’s”. When the couple announces that they are expecting their third child, the reaction of their sons and other people around them is absolutely stupid, yet hilarious. Ayushmann Khurrana is already on roll after his dark comedy in Andhadhun. He has returned to the big screen with the family entertainer, Badhaai Ho. Ayushman plays the role of the elder son, amusingly and follows the laughter riot of dealing with the awkward news.
The movie has earned Rs 7.29 crore on the opening day and made Ayushmann, the biggest opener till date. The following day, the movie made a business of Rs 11.67 crore and on the third day, it soared even higher by earning Rs 12 crore, thus bringing its total collection to around Rs 30 crore.
