Good Newwz | No Rating Movie Review | Akshay Kumar | Kareena Kapoor Khan | Diljit Dosanjh | Kiara Advani
Good Newwz brings glad tidings – we get a talented cast led by Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan, a story that resonates with parents and those desperate to begin their family, and a delightful mix of comedy and emotions that never gets preachy. Debut director Raj Mehta deals with a rather serious subject of two couples opting for IVF (In-vitro Fertilization) with a generous mix of comedy and emotions. An urban comedy with its heart in the right place, Good Newwz just hits the right spot. The basic premise of Good Newwz was established in trailer itself. There are the posh Batras — a high-flying journalist Deepti (Kareena) and a sales executive Varun (Akshay) versus the loud Batras — homemaker Monika (Kiara Advani) and god-knows-what-does-he-do-for-a-living Honey (Diljit Dosanjh) from Chandigarh. After several failed attempts at conceiving a baby naturally, both the couples consult Mumbai’s best fertility doctors (Adil Hussain and his wife Tisca Chopra) and opt for IVF. As they await the good news, the doctor shares a rather negligent sperm mix-up, leaving both the couples in a state of agony and helplessness. A series of hilarious events follow as the couples come to terms with the unusual situation they are in. Good Newwz has the right mix of ingredients and makes for a timely entertainer in this season of cheer. Not preachy or over the top, this light-hearted comic caper is the perfect way to end the year with. It is good news indeed for the audience.
