Raja Sen | Hindustan Times: 3.5/5
Ayushmann Khurrana’s film belongs to Neena Gupta. Funny film about family and accepting an unfamiliar situation ... Full Review

Rachit Gupta | Times of India: 4/5
The film engages thoroughly, while still making a social statement. Even though the story has a limited scope, the detailed writing, the finesse of Sharma’s direction and some unforgettable performances, make this film an absolute winner ... Full Review

Kunal Guha | Mumbai Mirror: 4/5
This one trudges along by leaning on a parallel track — Nakul’s relationship with his colleague Renee (Sanya Malhotra) and his attempts to impress her society doyenne mum (Sheeba Chaddha) which give legs to the story ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2.5/5
Badhaai Ho doesn’t quite know what it wants us to do more, laugh or cry. And parts of the film sink into sitcom flatness, especially when Sikri overdoes her grumpy 'saas' act, though some of her lines are laugh-out-loud ... Full Review

Shrishti Negi | News18: 3.5/5
Badhaai Ho is a smart and well thought-out movie which slightly suffers from unrequired melodrama in the second half, but overall it’s as entertaining as you wanted it to be. Not a film to miss ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | News18: 3.5/5
There are plenty laugh-out-loud moments, especially in the first half, and a bulk of them involve Nakul’s acid-tongued granny ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3.5/5
Neena Gupta Is Outstanding In A Wonderful Cast. Gajraj Rao is consistently convincing, but perhaps the most impactful performance is delivered by Surekha Sikri ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 3.5/5
BADHAAI HO is not a laugh riot but emerges as a complete family entertainer with emotions as its USP. The film leaves you with a smile and at the box office, it is at an advantage ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 3.5/5
Badhaai Ho is a clean family entertainer which also is a tight slap at the mentality of certain people which unfortunately still exists ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: 2/5
A cheeky exploration of late pregnancy and its repercussions falls flat when it becomes all about loving your family ... Full Review

Shilpa Jamkhandikar | Reuters: 3/5
The second half falters and the comic moments become sporadic, but Akshat Ghildial’s screenplay retains its charm ... Full Review

Sudarshana Dwivedi | Rediff: 3.5/5
Badhai Ho tackles a serious subject comically, without losing on entertainment or your attention ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 3.5/5
Still, what Badhaai Ho offers is precious - an insight into the lives of real people rather than glossed-up specimens of humanity that exist only in the imagination of commercial filmmakers ... Full Review

Meena Iyer | DNAIndia: 3.5/5
The performances are first-rate. Gajraj leads, followed by a superlative Ayushmann. You wonder why Neena Gupta kept herself hidden for so long because she is a delight to watch ... Full Review

Suhani Singh | India Today: 2.5/5
Badhaai Ho, starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Neena Gupta, is delightful in the first half but soon loses its fizz ... Full Review

Udita Jhunjhunwala | Live Mint: 3.5/5
The seasoned cast members elevate this ingenuous comic drama ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 2.5/5
Badhaai Ho doesn’t push the needle for the actor, and there is little in Khurrana’s performance that is new or surprising ... Full Review

Suparna Sharma | Deccan Chronicle: 3.5/5
A sparkling master class in acting. Badhaai Ho is written and directed with self-assurance and confidence. It doesn’t feel the need to pause to sell us even its funniest moments ... Full Review

Farheen Hussain | Deccan Herald: 4/5
Badhaai Ho is thoroughly enjoyable thanks to the situational comedy and relatable instances. It subtly highlights the prejudices that are deeply-rooted within people and makes one evaluate their own mentality ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 3/5
Badhaai Ho, on late pregnancy, is just as funny, and as much fun; even as the point of the picture might seem progressively belaboured ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 4/5
All-in-all, watch Badhaai Ho for its unique take on the family film sub-genre, as also for some paisa vasool acting by the entire cast. Congratulations indeed to director Amit Ravindernath Sharma for making a hugely entertaining film ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: 3.5/5
An Enjoyable, Well-Scripted Look At The Contrasts Of Social Stigma ... Full Review

Manas Tiwari | Financial Express: 3.5/5
Badhaai Ho leaves you with a smile when you come out of the theatre. It is a complete package you can watch this weekend and enjoy with your family ... Full Review

Rag Mayur | Chitramala: 3.5/5
The writers Shanatanu Srivastava , Akshat Ghildial and Jyoti Kapoor deserve a big clap for coming up with such a quirky, unusual subtle story . The setting makes the script very believable. The dialogues have a lot of pun and at the same time convey deep messages ... Full Review

Suparna Thombare | Cinestaan: 4/5
Hilarious, earnest and a complete joy ... Full Review

Reshu Manglik | India TV: 4/5
Ayushmann Khurrana is fabby as usual, but Neena Gupta-Gajraj Rao are showstealers here. The tried and tested formula of neighbourhood tale, combined with an unusual story; this is a recipe for a superhit! ... Full Review

Ayushmann's latest is refreshingly honest, entertaining ... Full Review

Priyanka Bhadani | The Week: 2.5/5

Ajit Duara | Open Magazine: 3.5/5
From a comedy of situation, with which it begins, the film turns into an uplifting and affecting bonding of the human family ... Full Review

Meetu | Wogma: 4.5/5
The movie doesn’t take its basic premise further and yet goes way beyond it. The relationship nuances touched upon are rarely seen in films. Free of drama, glamour, action, this ‘it is what it is’ family drama, is a thoroughly engaging and insightful entertainer. Just the one ‘apology’ scene makes the film a winner ... Full Review
