#BadhaaiHo emerges a BIG FAVOURITE at the ticket windows… Has SENSATIONAL extended weekend… Thu 7.29 cr, Fri 11.67 cr, Sat 12.60 cr, Sun 13.50 cr. Total: ₹ 45.06 cr. India biz… Didn’t release in Madhya Pradesh due to cinema strike. Otherwise, the total would be higher.

Compare to ‘Namaste England’, ‘Badhaai Ho’ has received rave reviews from the critics as well as the audiences. Despite of having Parineeti and Arjun in the lead pair, the movie failed to live up to the expectations of the moviegoers.
Bollywood Bubble gave the film 1 stars out of 5. The review read as, “Both Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra seem like they’re doing the film only for the money, and very rarely do you find their performance to be sincere. The dialogues stink as badly as rotten cheese and their chemistry is so bad, it’ll make you suffer.”
‘Badhaai Ho’ was given 4 stars out of 5 and why not? It’s such an entertaining movie that comes with a message. Bollywood Bubble review says, “The story of the film keeps you hooked and leaves you longing for more. Somehow you leave the theatres missing each and every character. You will want to be a part of this crazy family. It will make you laugh, cry and break notions that even parents can have SEX.”
