is directed by Shashank Khaitan and is produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions.
In his review for NDTV Movies, Saibal Chatterjee gave Badrinath Ki Dulhania two out of five stars
and wrote: "Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan's film is a pulpy, uneven romantic caper that strives to pass itself off as a mellow tale of patriarchy, love, honour and ambition." However, he praised Alia and Varun's performance and wrote that they "deliver energetic performances."
The film also stars Gauahar Khan, Shweta Basu Prasad and Mohit Marwah.
