Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor's Good Newwz couldn't have released at a better time. Helmed by Raj Mehta, the comic caper is a must-watch for all youngsters, adults and families this holiday season. Touted as possibly the funniest and most entertaining film from Dharma after a long time, Good Newwz has created quite a buzz with its trailers and songs.
After a long hiatus, the film will also mark the reunion of Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor. The duo was last seen together in Gabbar is Back and Kambakkth Ishq. Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani are playing the second lead pair in the movie.
A 'complete package'
While critics have praised the film for its humour and entertainment quotient, the audience who got to see an early show has called it 'complete package'. Good Newwz has been produced by Hiroo Yash Johar, Aruna Bhatia, Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta and Shashank Khaitan.

Sumit Kadel has predicted that the film will be a big hit. Giving the reason behind it, Sumit has said, "Advance booking of #GoodNewwz is good, the film has got tremendous number of shows at multiplexes across India resulting into slightly low advance compared to other Akshay films this year. Nevertheless, the film will have a good spot booking & shall post a very good Day-1 total."
