Kahaani 2 was not great. Nothing compared to the first one.
Bardinath Ki Dulhania was actually kind of watchable. I went in with low expectations, and was better than I thought it would be.
Not totally ridiculous like some Bollywood films tend to be i.e. not a David Dhawan or Sajid Khan type movie which somehow people enjoy despite being stupid.
But a decent film. Badly crushing on Alia Bhatt though....

The Hindi version was one of the shoddier remake attempts of the film, given that it was already remade in 3 other Indian languages by that time !..
Having a 30 year old Shriya Sharan play mother to a 16-year old was rather poor filmamking, given that there are many talented actresses of the appropriate age available (see how Amir Khan's wife was cast in Dangal)..
Also I don't get why the scene of the Boy dying is changed so as to make his death completely accidental, instead of the girl doing it voluntarily as it is in the original film ! Why can't filmmakers portray the woman as capable of a choice, where she could choose to hurt a man who was threatening to completely ruin her. This extreme adherence to the "Sathi savitri" image of Indian women that bollywood still choses to adhere to really dissapointed. It took away the moral dilemma over the remainder of the actions of the family and especially as that of the father ! . "Oh , we were just escaping from an unfortunate twist of fate.! He was just saving his family ! ". This overt purification of the hero's intentions reduced the quality of that film in my opinion. In the original story, the hero CHOOSES to do what he does, knowing fully well that he is doing wrong , to cover up the actions of his family ! .
