Badrinath Ki Dulhania - Movie Review

I like small town movies if made well (if they capture the essence of small towns). This one does. Kota (looked interesting), Jhansi and then Singapore (not in the small town list), Varun is rich, Alia is middle class, Varun is tenth pass, Alia much better educated. Varun guileless. Alia not so.

Varun Dhawan puts in a lot of effort and it pays off in his roles. Alia makes it look so frustratingly easy that people must be pulling their hair out wondering how she does it. Shweta Basu looks pretty in her bhabhi role and she does a competent job as always. All in all it worked for me and gave me unadulterated pleasure for those 2 hours.
