After both Rajkummar Rao and Bhumi Pednekar put up a quirky poster of Badhaai Do on Instagram, it had the audience guessing what the movie would be about and finally, questions have been answered with its trailer dropping. Directed by Harshvardhan Kulkarni, the movie focuses on Shardul Thakur, a policeman, played by Rajkummar Rao who has got his eyes set on a prize. The prize being Suman “Sumi” Singh, a 31-year-old physical education teacher, played by Bhumi Pednekar who is not the least bit interested in marriage. Even with her mother pressuring her to do so she does not budge. He has been behind her for 4 years to ask her hand in marriage but she seems more than uninterested.

But after some convincing points from his side, she seems to be considering getting married to him. How the tables have turned. We get a glimpse of the journey they will be taking us on and we cannot wait! Rajkummar Rao completely embodies the role of that of a courteous policeman and has also gotten absolutely ripped to portray the character. The movie sticks to its reputation of being a comedy-drama as it very evidently shows signs of both in its trailer. A very convincing and spectacular performance from both parties have us waiting for more. The movie features glamorous songs with giant set pieces like almost every Bollywood movie ever!

Badhaai Do is a sequel to the 2018 sleeper hit, Badhaai Ho. But unlike its prequel, the story and the characters both vary from one another technically making this one a fresh movie all of its own. The movie also seems to have an LGBTQ curve which has our senses tingling. It is an important subject to tackle in this day and age so it has got us curious about how they will go about it. The movie is set to release in theatres on 11th February 2022.
