Appreciating the film and the subject a user wrote, “Just an open appreciation post for #BadhaaiDo No straight person can ever understand how deeply personal and affecting this film is! The way the film portrays homosexual relationships trying to show them like heterosexual “normal” relationships is another master stroke! The comedy remains perfectly situational but as the film slips into it’s emotional counterpart, it knows how to go tender and gentle. #harshavardhankulkarni thank you so much for putting this all together! I haven’t smiled so much in a film recently! Neither have I cried this much recently in any film! Guys PLEASE GO WATCH #BadhaaiDo at a cinema near you! This film deserves all the love.” Badhaai Do Box Office Collection Day 1: Rajkummar Rao-Bhumi Pednekar starrer opens to low response
