Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
Badhaai Do is subtle, and touches the right chords with the audience who can feel the pain of people who might be different, but certainly not 'abnormal'.
The script writer of Badhaai Do should be lauded for etching out such fine characters and bringing out the taboos of our society. A society that still needs to be educated about homosexual and trans persons: that they are very much normal people and have emotions as much as we do.
Rajkumar Rao excels as the gay but entitled male who inspite of being a tough cop, finds it difficult to come out of the closet. How the character of Rajkumar Rao finds an emotional support in the character of Bhumi Pednekar, going through similar turmoil, forms the crux of the story.
Badhaai Do breaks the Bollywood stereotypes of cliched jokes on the LGBT community and loud melodrama related to this issue. It is subtle, and touches the right chords with the audience who can feel the pain of the people who might be different, but certainly not ‘abnormal’. It shows the reality of how people suffer and suffocate adhering to the norms of our society.
I would like to specially mention about how this movie raises questions on the adoption rules of our country. A homosexual couple are not allowed to adopt children, another proof of how even the system discriminates against them. They are denied the right to even prove that they could be great parents and could give a home to a child, just because the society thinks they are ‘against nature’.
Badhaai Do is really a must watch for us, as we all need to change our outlook and perspective towards the community who have to fight everyday just to lead a normal life.

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Ms. Kulkarni, please don’t apologise ‘IF’ you think you hurt women. Apologise because you got your facts wrong. Apologise for making sexual harassment a casual joke.
If Sonali Kulkarni’s speech on most modern Indian women being lazy left me shocked and enraged, her apology post left me deeply saddened.
I’d shared my thoughts on her problematic speech in an earlier article. So, I’ll share why I felt Kulkarni’s apology post was more damaging than her speech.
If her speech made her an overnight hero among MRAs, sexists, and people who were awed by her dramatic words, then her apology post made her a legendary saint.
