    We have had films on sperm donation ( Vicky donor), female menstruation hygiene ( Padman), open defecation (Toilet ek prem katha), erectile dysfunction ( Shub mangal saavdhan), gay girl couple ( Ek ladki ko dekha), gay boy couple ( Shub mangal zyada saavdhan) and a few others.
    In this wave where makers of Hindi films have picked up forbidden subjects, this one deals with IVF in purely comic context. We have a young well to do urban couple Akshay and Kareena ( Batras) who are childless for many years despite their desperate attempts to attain parenthood. They then plan to try IVF and visit Dr Adil Hussain who along with his doctor wife Dr Tisca Chopra runs a fertility clinic. All good so far till one fine day the Batras are informed by the embarrassed doctor that there has been an irreversible mixup in their fertilization process. Another Batra couple ( Diljit and Kiara) had also undergone the process around the same time. The complication is that due to this error, now Akshay's semen is in Kiara's womb and Diljit's semen is in Kareena's womb. Needless to say all hell breaks loose and there is much shouting and counter shouting among the two couples and the doctor couple. When things settle down , both couples ( Batras) accept their fate. While Diljit happily accepts the child carried by Kareena in good spirit, Akshay has difficulty in accepting the child carried by Kiara. Some developments take place and the plot gets interesting to come to an interresting conclusion.
    Prerequisites of a comedy film are good dialogue with punchlines and comic timing of the actors. Since this film has both aspects in good measure it turns out to be a roaring comedy with rib tickling scenes .Comic scenes follow one after another in a fast pace without a dull moment. The film gives you a guffaw every alternate scene. The film stays clear of vulgarising the issue of IVF. All four main actors have done well in comedy. While Akshay is good as usual, Diljit is the pleasant surprise. Look out for Kareena's outburst talking about the troubles a woman undergoes during pregnancy. As per her character, the men have hardly any role beyond their organism.
    Director Raj Mehta has done a good job in his debut film after a couple of films as asst director and shows promise in shooting comedy scenes. He will be a good mainstream film director.
    All told this is a well made comedy which will keep you entertained throughout
