Background & Story:
Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania released in 2014 and now, the second part of the franchise is all set to hit the theatres. Titled Badrinath Ki Dulhania, it is a completely new story and has nothing to do with the original film. The film stars Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan in the lead roles, with Mohit Marwah, Gauhar Khan, and Girish Karnad playing the supporting characters.
The Badrinath Ki Dulhania trailer was out some time ago and everyone absolutely loved it. It looks like a typical Bollywood entertainer with loads of romance and comedy. The chemistry between Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan looks great too. This is their third film together after Student of the Year and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. The common factor between these two movies and Badrinath Ki Dulhania is Karan Johar. His production house – Dharma Productions – has backed the movie and looks like they haven't compromised on the budget. While most of the movie has been shot in Jaipur, one leg of the shoot was held in Singapore.
The first two tracks that released were Badri Ki Dulhania and Tamma Tamma Again, and both of them are topping the charts. The Badrinath Ki Dulhania album, in general, is getting positive reviews. The movie looks vibrant and seems like a typical rom-com in which a couple meets, separates, and then meets again. Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt are painting the town – or rather the country – red with the promotions of the films. They have made an appearance on almost every reality TV show and are now traveling to Jaipur, Delhi, and other cities to promote their upcoming movie.
Badrinath Ki Dulhania looks all geared up to set the cash registers ringing and it may just become the biggest Bollywood hit of 2017 so far. The film will be out on March 10, 2017, and don’t forget to check this space for our review.
