Khandaani Shafakhana Movie Review, Comedy About a Woman who Inherits a Sex Clinic, Sonakshi Sinha and Badshah’s film has its heart in the place but suffers for playing sexual problems for jokes and unnecessary melodrama.
Can she find a cure for the widespread social stigma against important issues like sex education and sexual health? The line that separates drollery and mockery is admittedly thin. No worries on that count here. The witty screenplay, the deft directorial touches and the consistent onscreen performances keep Khandaani Shafakana from straying.
The film is directed by Shilpi Dasgupta and features Sonakshi Sinha and Kulbhushan Kharbanda in the lead roles. Sonakshi Sinha (Baby Bedi) in the movie is seen as a simple, middle-class family girl. She is carrying the responsibility of her entire family on her shoulders after the death of her father. Being the eldest sister, who has a younger brother, a younger married sister and a widow mother, she has a lot of responsibility towards her family. Her income does not match up to the mounting bills and demands of the family.
Baby Bedi’s maternal uncle – mama ji, played by Kulbushan Kharbanda had been an Unani expert and was running his sex clinic. He was a successful medical practitioner, whose treatment was acknowledged by all his patients. After his death, Baby Bedi inherited his entire property on a condition to serve his clinic for 6 months.
Though Sex is still not being openly talked in the society and India still needs to work a lot more on it, yet it’s not a very serious issue these days. People are becoming progressive in their thoughts and have started understanding the need to talk about the same. However, earlier people used to give disapproving glances even at the mention of the word.
