‘Badhaai Ho’ review: Parental Control

Reading Time: 5 minutes Director Amit Ravindernath Sharma addresses the issues that hits a family that’s faced with an unexpected pregnancy. Amidst all the guffaws and laughs and tender moments, the movie makes you realize that teenage pregnancies may be scandalous, but they don’t hold a candle to late-in-life deliveries.

‘Andhadhun’ review: Run, Rabbit Run

Reading Time: 5 minutes Director Sriram Raghavan with his team of writers comes up with a devilishly clever and sharp entertainer that’s full of twists, jumps, guffaws, and references galore. As with any satisfying thriller, it’s when it throws you off most unexpectedly that you give out a sigh most evil.

‘Shubh Mangal Savdhan’ review: Life’s Hard When It Isn’t

Reading Time: 4 minutes Keeping the proceedings alive and kicking is the cast. As Mudit’s parents, Supriya Shukla and Chittaranjan Tripathy are superb. The latter, especially, is brilliant in a scene where he evokes a Pan Parag ad, just because he wanted to, for the longest time; or, when Mudit fails to show up in the bus to Hardwar, his alcohol-laced aggression is classic, more so when it’s followed by the inevitable open-mouthed slumber. On the other side, Seema Bhargava and Neeraj Sood are equally good as the girl’s parents; note again, the latter, as he gets tetchier by the moment and gives some terse advice to the hapless Mudit on the phone.
