Khandaani Shafakhana is a 2019 Indian comedy-drama film directed by Shilpi Dasgupta and written by Gautam Mehra. The film features Sonakshi Sinha, Badshah, and Varun Sharma in lead roles. The story revolves around Babita "Baby" Bedi (Sonakshi Sinha), a young girl who inherits a sex clinic run by her late uncle in Punjab. The clinic is called "Khandaani Shafakhana" and it has been running for generations. However, due to the taboo around sex and the conservative mindset of the people of Punjab, the clinic is in danger of shutting down.

Baby's uncle had expressed the desire that the clinic should be run by a qualified doctor, but Baby is not a doctor. She is a salesgirl who is struggling to make ends meet. But when she finds out that the clinic is the only inheritance her uncle has left her, she decides to take up the challenge of running it.

Things are not easy for Baby as she faces criticism from the society, especially from her own family who do not approve of the clinic's work. However, she finds support from her friend and music director, Gabru Ghataak (Varun Sharma). Gabru helps Baby in reaching out to the people of Punjab and spreading the word about the clinic's work.

As the story progresses, Baby meets a famous rapper, Karmvir Singh (Badshah), who suffers from a sexual problem. Karmvir is hesitant to go to the clinic due to its reputation, but Baby convinces him to give it a chance. Karmvir's experience at the clinic changes his opinion and he becomes a strong supporter of Baby's work.

The film is a lighthearted take on a taboo subject that is rarely talked about in India. It highlights the misconceptions and the stigma around sex in India and how it affects people's lives. The film's message is clear - it is important to talk about sex and to seek help when needed.

Sonakshi Sinha delivers a good performance as Baby. She portrays the character's struggle and determination with utmost sincerity. Varun Sharma adds a comic touch to the film with his portrayal of Gabru. However, it is Badshah who steals the show with his impressive debut performance. He portrays his character with great conviction and manages to bring depth to the film.

The film's music, composed by Tanishk Bagchi, Rochak Kohli, and Badshah himself, is a highlight. The songs are catchy and add to the film's overall charm.

Overall, Khandaani Shafakhana is an entertaining film that manages to tackle a taboo subject with both humor and sensitivity. It is a must-watch for anyone who wants to see a different side of Bollywood.

Khandaani Shafakhana is a 2019 comedy with a runtime of 2 hours and 16 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.3.
