The film produced by Karan Johar stars Akshay Kumar, Diljit Dosanjh, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Kiara Advani in main roles. Here is our review of the film...

What is it about...

Varun and Dipti Batra are an affluent Mumbai couple who are having issues in conceiving a baby. Dipti (Kareena Kapoor Khan) who is slightly past her prime fertility years is desperate to start a family. Varun (Akshay Kumar) loves her dearly but does not share her passion for having a baby. This causes rifts in them. Finally, they decide to have a baby through IVF. Everything is hunky dory till Dr Joshi's (Adil Hussain) team mixes up the sperms of the two Batras. Chandigarh based couple Honey (Diljit Dosanjh) and Monika (Kiara Advani) Batra are loud, annoying and utterly lack the sophistication possessed by Varun and Dipti. How they come on terms with the fact that they are expecting children from a sperm goof-up is what the film is about... 

What is hot...

The highlight of the film is in the writing. Jyoti Kapoor, Raj Mehta and Rishabh Sharma have done a fab job with the screenplay and dialogues. The first half is a rib-tickling one. You will not have a single full moment. The reference to the Delhi Noida Corporation is a hoot. Coming to the performances, Diljit Dosanjh is the shining star of the film. He makes you whistle with the comic lines and is a natural in the emotional scenes. Kareena Kapoor Khan looks fabulous and puts in a solid performance. Kiara Advani is perfect as the innocent Monika who believes that even a sperm mix up is a sign of good things from Mata Rani. Akshay Kumar is superb in the comic sequences. Raj Mehta holds the narrative effortlessly as the film reaches it's emotional curve. Manish More's editing is good. The songs are peppy but do not register as the content is far livelier. Adil Hussain again proves why we need to see more of him in mainstream Bollywood. 

What's not..

Good Newwz is the perfect film for this holiday week. It has the comic elements and the right emotional quotient to make you feel entertained and fuzzy. Don't miss this one...
