94% Tomatometer 18 Reviews 91% Audience Score 100+ Ratings Shardul (Rajkummar Rao) 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 (Bhumi Pednekar), a school PT teacher, comes to him to file a harassment complaint, Shardul's life takes a different turn altogether. This boy-meet-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. Wedding bells ring for them, but there's more than just what meets the eyes: a lie, both are hiding from their respective families. Set in between two crazy clans, Badhaai Do is a dramedy that ensues when two unlikely people tie the knot and start getting thrown into one hilarious situation after another. Amidst finding themselves in this comedy of errors, they emerge forming the strongest of bonds in their unusual relationship. Read More Read Less Watch on Netflix Stream Now

Anamika Gopalan Autostraddle Badhaai Do lets me see myself in those stories—in their songs, their dramas, and even their happy endings. I wish my teen self could have watched this film. Mar 25, 2022 Full Review Namrata Joshi National Herald (India) What it does do within the confines of family film is push the envelope of gay representation a few notches further and that too more assuredly. Feb 18, 2022 Full Review Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express We love rainbows. If only it didn’t get mainstream Bollywood so long to come to the point, and stick with it. Rated: 2.5/5 Feb 16, 2022 Full Review Ishmeet Nagpal Common Sense Media Every single actor, no matter how minor their role, aces their part. Rated: 4/5 Nov 15, 2023 Full Review Sharanya Kumar Film Companion The film reckons with how herculean it is to be visibly queer, even if your notions of love are traditional. It also brings to the fore the aspect of how communities for queer folks have to be cultivated outside of their familial network. Nov 13, 2023 Full Review Rahul Desai Film Companion I’ve been a bit worried about Rajkummar Rao since the success of Stree (2018). But as it turns out, form is temporary…you know how it goes. It’s been his year. Feb 10, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
