Direct Raj Mehta's Hindi movie Good News (Newwz / Newz) starring Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani has received positive reviews and rating from the audience.
Good News is a comedy film and Jyoti Kapoor has written the story, screenplay and dialogues for it in collaboration with Rishabh Sharma and Raj Mehta. Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, Hiroo Yash Johar, Shashank Khaitan and Aruna Bhatia have bankrolled it under their banners Dharma Productions and Cape of Good Films. It has received a U/A certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.14 hours.
Good News movie story: It is about Varun (Akshay Kumar) and Deepti Batra (Kareena Kapoor), a working couple from Mumbai, and Honey and Monika Batra, a landlord couple from Chandigarh. Two couples with the same surnames pursue in-vitro fertilisation. But the trouble ensues when they find that the sperms of each couple have been mixed with each other. What happens next forms the crux of this dramedy.
Analysis: Good News deals a fresh subject of a pregnancy switcheroo, which is a treat for urbane family audience. Some sparkling light-hearted comedy scenes keep you engaged in the first half, but the director falters in the second half, as he fails to resolve the situations he has built up in the first part, say the viewers.
Performances: Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani have delivered hilarious performances, which are the highlights of Good News. Adil Hussain, Tisca Chopra, Gulshan Grover, Anjana Sukhani, Yukta Mookhey and Auritra Ghosh have done justice to their respective roles and they are also among the assets of the movie, say the audience.
Technical: Good News has decent production values and music, picturisation, hilarious dialogues, good setups and costumes are the attractions on the technical front, add the audience.
