Badrinath Ki Dulhania Review: Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan-starrer Is an Out and Out 'Paisa Wasool' Film
A still from

Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan made their Bollywood debut in 2012 with Karan Johar's Student Of the Year and ever since then, the two have continued to woo the audience with their chemistry - both onscreen and offscreen. They next shared screen space in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and wowed the viewers, in particular the millennials, with their effortless charm and camaraderie.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania, second film in the franchise, promises to be equally entertaining as the first one. Starring Varun as Badrinath Bansal and Alia as Vaidehi Trivedi, the trailer looks like it's a modern yet desi take on weddings. Whether it'll be any different from the previous one - remains to be seen.

The one thing about Humpty that left the audience in splits was the perfect comic timing of the supporting cast and it'll be interesting to see how the new cast pulls it off in this Shashank Khaitan's directorial. The film also features Gauahar Khan, Shweta Basu Prasad in pivotal roles.

Will Alia and Varun's characters have the same quirks as in the first installment? Will Alia-Varun's chemistry reprise their tag of the most-adorable couple in Bollywood? Will the film manage to tickle your funny bone and keep you engaged? Kriti Tulsiani from News18.com is inside the theater to find out.
