Critics Review

Manjusha Radhakrishnan of Gulf News said: “The first half of the film moves at a brisk pace, while the second half gets bogged down by an overly long stretch about Vaidehi’s profession as an air hostess. However, it’s the chemistry between the lead pair is what keeps you hooked to this romance. While the comical twists put a smile on your face, a stray joke about homosexuals was unwarranted and grating.”

Manju Ramanan of said: “Badrinath… stretches post interval, and the much-awaited Tamma Tamma Loge song appears towards the end. The groom-choosing scene didn’t work for me – it was too flighty in a set-up that was real. The film twists towards the end when Badri’s character changes from being totally patriarchal to understanding the challenges of women and then, accosting his father. It ends as being idealistic but takes forward the cause it espouses. Varun is endearing and earnest and shines in the role matching it with Alia’s luminous presence and histrionics. Succinctly put, it is a Varun Dhawan film and adds to his repertoire of memorable roles.”
