Badhai Ho Review (SPOILERS): A Movie About Loving Your Parents as People, Not Just as Parents

What I lovely movie!  Just delightful.  And no knowledge of the plot can really “spoil” it (although if you definitely don’t want spoilers, you can read my other review).  So I am going to encourage you to see it in theaters if at all possible, and if not read this review and plan to catch it streaming or otherwise.

I already put up my no spoilers review, I encourage you to read that one, because this is a really sweet movie that deserves to be seen and not spoiled.  On the other hand, we do mostly know the plot just from the trailer, so I guess in this case spoilers aren’t THAT bad.  It’s not what happens, it’s how it happens.
