Review Good Newwz & earn 20 DM Points.*

The Good Newwz about mankind is that God has bestowed woman the gift of motherhood.
All married couples long for being parents at the earliest. But do all succeed? If not,what's the way out?
Here ( for the first time) the focus is on parenthood through IVF.
It could partly b inspired by the route taken by some celebrities ,partly because in the present set ups with stressful lives,some couples may have medical and psychogical problems in not going for the traditional route. ,the easy accessibility of IVF centres mushrooming all over,the working couples may b staying apart etc.
In the movie under review two couples with the same surnames are undergoing parenthood through IVF.
It so happens that because of the similar surnames the clinic personnel have mixed up the samples.The women are carrying the child of the other husband's.
Should they continue with the surrogacy? Should they abort?Should they seek legal redressal against the clinic?
At least both the surrogates and one of the two husband's have reconciled to go through it.The other husband was never inclined to raise a family and is against the continuance of the what has happened.Jn simple words ,he's for an abortion.
What ultimately happens? Go see for your selves.
To me ,a sensitive subject should have been handled in a calmer and sensitive manner instead of a loose ' comic ' approach.
The choice of abortion should always b with the mother.
It's surprising that Akshay Kumar's character is throughout indifferent and negative till the near end.
Double meaning ' humour' could have been avoided .
The compositions are forced and have been inserted to streach the length.
Daljit Dosanj has certainly outperformed Akshay.
To me the subject could have been handled much better by a woman director like Meghna Gulzar/ Gauri Shinde.
Am not sure about the box office success of GN.Why? Because it could be taken note of the urban moder elite segment only.
All in all an untouched subject has been focussed upon is apprecitiable.
