The film has gained nothing but positive reviews from the critics as well. Film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Badhaai Ho 3.5 stars out of 5 and said, “Badhaai Ho is a family drama with a difference whose appeal stems from the confident and steady manner in which it unfolds. Badhaai Ho is relatable despite the fact that it deals with a situation that isn't all that common, in real life or in cinema. Sharma knows his craft and demonstrates an acute sense of proportion, especially when he is dealing with the dramatic moments that spur the tale forward,” in his review for NDTV.
The story of the film revolves around a middle aged couple(played by Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao) who are going to become parents again. However, the catch here is that they already have a grown up son(played by Ayushmann Khurrana). The film also stars Surekha Sikri and Sanya Malhotra.
