Sonakshi Sinha is very good in the film. The topic of sex and sexual disorders is subtly tackled.

Don’t expect many laugh out loud moments. Also, the film at times seems to be dragged.
Read Detail Review
The movie marks the debut of director Shilpi Dasgupta and we applaud her for taking up a subject like this. As first timer, Shilpi has done a decent job and the best part is that the makers opted to make this movie with a female protagonist. A movie revolving around sex and it has a female protagonist that’s where the half race was won.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
So, the movie is about Baby Bedi (Sonakshi Sinha). Her mama (Kulbhushan Kharbanda) a sexologist has a clinic named Khandaani Shafakhana. After he dies it is revealed that he has given the property to Baby, but to acquire the property she has to run the clinic for six months. So, as expected, Baby starts running the clinic and the movie moves forward.
The writer has kept the humour very subtle. There are not many scenes that would make you laugh out loud, but the film successfully gets a smile on our faces at many sequences. The first half is a bit weak here compared to the second half. The movie at the end becomes preachy and that shouldn’t have happened. The climax should have been the highlight here, but it fails to crack you up.
Sonakshin Sinha looks gorgeous in the girl next door avatar and has performed very well. Varun Sharma is repetitive and Badshah doesn’t have much to do apart from an important scene in the climax. By the way, Badshah’s styling is fantastic in the film. Priyansh Jora is good in his part. Nadira Babbar could have been better and it is a delight to watch Kulbhushan Kharbanda.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
The music of the film is good; Koka and Sans Toh Lele are entertaining tracks. But they won’t be with you once you leave the theatres.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
Khandaani Shafakhana turns out to be decent watch, but please keep your shyness at home and watch this film.
