From the trailer we all got the idea of what is the basic story of good Newwz starring Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani, right? What it offers more in the film is funny storytelling and emotional quotient with some valid reasons. A sensitive topic like this (IVF) is being told in funny manners wasn’t looking appropriate when the trailer came out and there was a constant fear that this goof up might get messed up because of comedy touch but thankfully everything here is perfect whether it is comedy, presentation or content. We haven’t seen much goof up stories in Bollywood and Good Newwz is probably the Best among those rare films.
Varun Batra (Akshay Kumar) and Deepu Batra (Kareena Kapoor) an urban couple give nod to IVF process to have a baby but accidentally there is another couple of same surname who is also trying the same process to have a baby. The technician in lab gets confused between two Batra’s and mix up thier samples. Now this is something really interesting and it creates lot of funny confusions, intentional face offs and quirky flights. But at the end there is much needed emotional touch to end the film on Happy note and you also get to know that why there are two ‘W’s in the film’s title.
Akshay Kumar as Varun Batra is truly hilarious. He will make you laugh out loudly with his dialogues and expressions. Kareena Kapoor as his high class wife is bindass, she’s bossing type and looks convincing urban housewife. Diljit Dosanjh joins the party late but he is freaking Funny from the first scene and end up having so much fun. Kiara Advani plays a devotional, sober housewife and she looks cute. Adil Hussain and Tisca Chopra play a perfect Doctor couple who have successfully delivered 26,000+ babies in thier hospital and assure a Good News through a video advertise. Anjana Sukhani is seen after a long time on screen and she plays Akshay Kumar’s sister, a Lawyer by profession with enough conviction.
Written by Jyoti Kapoor and Raj Mehta Good Newwz is a perfect tale of comedy, important subject and emotions. Finally, bollywood gets that one Perfect Urban comedy for multiplex Audience. Dialogues by Rishab Sharma are quirky and also create meaningful situational comedy continuosly. Music is Fantastic because all songs appear on perfect situations and that’s why doesn’t look boring. ‘Sauda Khara’ doesn’t have a separate video and still it is the best among all despite having only background playing mode.
Raj Mehta debuts with a strong film and he will surely recieve lots of Praise for his directorial skills in this film. Telling this sensitive topic with Comedy touch was a risk but he dared to do so and successfully achieved the destination. The comedy seems quite high class sometimes but fortunately it didn’t cross the limits. Good Newwz is a perfect mixture of Goof, urban comedy, emotions and all cinematic properties. Good Newwz ends 2019 with the bang and there are no second thoughts about it’s commercial success. Go and have a Good time with Good Newwz.
