This was a successful year for Akshay Kumar as he has delivered 4 films this year and 3 of them have minted good amount at the box office. Today released his another flick Good Newwz starring Kareena Kapoor, Diljit Dosanjh, and Kiara Advani. Here’s the review!
The movie is based on a couple who’s trying to have a baby but are unable to conceive naturally. So they decided to go for an IVF (in-vitro fertilization) procedure. But a mix up by their doctor leads to much confusion.
Deepti (Kareena Kapoor Khan) and Varun Batra (Akshay Kumar) are a posh, high-flying married couple, living in Mumbai and are much involved with their respective careers.
After trying for a few years, the couple decided to opt for IVF after consulting one of the best fertility specialists in the city. A few days after the procedure is through, Deepti and Varun are told there has been a sperm mix-up with another couple with the same last name.
Enter ‘the Batras from Chandigarh’ into their lives. Honey (Diljit Dosanjh) and Monika (Kiara Advani) are a loud Punjabi couple and now it’s a complete clash of sensibilities between the two sets of Batras.
As both Deepti and Monika soon find out they are pregnant, the rest of the film forms how the couples come to terms and deal with this unusual situation.
Director Raj Mehta makes sure that ‘Good Newwz’ stays true to its genre with several light-hearted and funny moments. Although given the subject and premise the narrative, at times, treads into a problematic zone and stance. And some of the jokes seem off-color.
On the performances front, Kareena Kapoor Khan steals the show and delivers a knockout performance. Akshay Kumar pulls off an amazing comic timing. Kiara Advani is sincere and makes an impression.
Good Newwz’ is a light and breezy comedy and certainly makes for an entertaining watch.
