“At heart Badhaai Do is a lively comedy – in many ways and occasionally, it recalls the subtle, good-humoured methods that a Hrishikesh Mukherjee film employed so effectively in another era. But its firmly new-age spirit helps it emphatically embrace diversity and difference as it explores notions of masculinity, feminine desire, marriage, procreation and the manacles that society seeks to put on those who are born different.”

“Badhaai Do, despite its welcome advocacy for inclusiveness and its ‘progressive’ stance, remains largely generic, formulaic…. If the film still manages to break free of the clutter-mass this genre of films is fast reaching, it’s because of an array of splendid performances.”

“At first, it seems odd that musical montages account for the more fertile portions of Badhaai Do. Parts that most other movies might have waxed dramatic about are rushed through here.”

Badhaai Do throws in the quandary of confronting a heavily patriarchal setup where the expectations of men are no different from those in heteronormative setups.”
