Akshay Kumar after three releases wants to end the year with a Good Newwz and he does it successfully.
Good Newwz is a story about the lives of two couples Dipti-Varun Batra (Kareena Kapoor Khan and Akshay Kumar) and Honey-Monica Batra (Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani) who are desperately trying to conceive a child.
When nothing works, they turn to in-vitro fertilization (IVF) through a renowned hospital. However, confusion and chaos ensue when they realize that due to the same surname (Batra), the doctors mistakenly mix-up the sperms.
The doctor’s admission of the mistake initially creates discomfiture and anger among the couple, but soon it gives way to even the more complex battles of rights.
The first half is hilarious and tickles your funny bone. spiky banter between Varun and Deepu, as they (she more than he) stare at the right date on the ovulating calendar, and get down to the job, her pushing, him pulling: sex strictly for procreation can be a chore.
Akshay Kumar is back with his old comic charm which will remind you of his performances in Priyadarshan movies. Kareena is outstanding and she each and every time proves that she is the best.
Diljit consummate turn manages to overcome the top-to-toe velvety-bling he’s togged out in; Kiara Advani due to her lack of maturity in acting makes the role a little artificial. Chopra offers able to support, and Hussain’s straight-faced, praying-to-the-almighty doc is an absolute hoot.
The second half of the film takes an emotional turn which talks about the issue of pregnancy a woman's role. There is an amazing monologue of Kareena where she talks about this to Akshay. This scene is like a fresh breeze that breaks the stereotype of Bollywood showcasing every cliched married woman whose only role is to conceive a child.
The film has issues with placing the song and it's too many. And it's a Dharma film even servants and nanny in a Dharma film has 4 BHK flat so that glossiness and aesthetically rich quality is there in this movie too.
Debutant director Rajiv Mehta has given a promising start and the writing by Jyoti Kapoor is fresh. At the end of the year, Bollywood A-listers have provided a good entertainer with Good Newzz.
