Badhaai Ho, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Sanya Malotra and Neena Gupta in lead roles, is a comedy with a sensitive subject at its core. On the other hand, Namaste England, starring Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra, is a commercial entertainer. Both the films are characteristically different but have managed to create considerable buzz. However, early reactions to the trailer and songs seem to be more in favour of Badhaai Ho, which has been directed by Amit Sharma.
