This is the type of movie that inevitably touches your coronary heart. It is about imply youngsters main their very own lives, leaving their outdated, lonely dad and mom to defend themselves. The movie makes a case for conventional values even in trendy occasions.
The storyline is considerably cliched for the Indian viewers, however the movie does make a bigger level about how modernisation is affecting the normal Punjabi household. It is about how dad and mom suppose the world of their youngsters and go to varied lengths to allow them to have a fulfilled life and the way their youngsters change into egocentric brats.

The outdated couple wind up watching the Hindi movie ‘Badhaai Ho’. This ignites an thought in Jaswinder and he utilises it to make his disappointment identified.
With staid humour thrown in intermittently, the narrative takes a reasonably circuitous path to hit dwelling the message.
The casting of the leads — Jaswinder Bhalla and Seema Kaushal — are pitch excellent. They make a cute couple and their on-screen chemistry is palpable. Binnu Dhillon, as Barinder, seems a little bit of a miscast if you evaluate him to the opposite three as siblings.
Deepali Rajput as Barinder’s love curiosity Baani and Bhumika Sharma as Aman’s love curiosity Sonia are competent and so they essay their characters with conviction. The different actors lend ready help via their spontaneity.
With reasonable manufacturing values, the movie is astutely mounted. The aerial pictures elevate the movie’s visible impression. Overall, it’s a mild model of the screaming melodramas of the late Nineteen Sixties.
