Here’s what critics are saying about the film Good Newwz starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Akshay Kumar, Kiara Advani, Diljit Dosanjh, Tisca Chopra, Adil Hussain, Anjana Sukhani
The surge in Hindi films addressing ‘taboo’ subjects, particularly those starring Akshay Kumar and Ayushmann Khurrana, have often toed the fine line between entertainment and preaching. Kumar’s latest film, Raj Mehta’s dramedy Good Newwz is the perfect blend of both, given it comes from a place of sheer conviction and embracing all tropes of meaningful entertainment. To say Good Newwz is a smart sociopolitical commentary on class would be a slight exaggeration. But it truly is an accurate, evolving into ideal, representation of our social zeitgeist.

DNAThe film is not mysterious as everything is shown in the trailer itself but the films’ kicka** dialogues are to be credited, all thanks to Rishabh Sharma. The one-liners of each and every character are crisp and will leave you in splits. I laughed my heart out in almost every scene until the last half an hour. For a debutant, Raj Mehta managed to strike a perfect balance in a situational comedy which has not been in Bollywood films for a long time. Read full review here.
Director Raj Mehta who steps into the director’s seat with Good Newzz makes the most out of it. His arsenal comprised of actors, situations, comedy and emotions. The first half of the film is humorous. It’s been a while since Bollywood witnessed a film which relies on good script. It is almost like an elaborate comedy skit but with much finer storyline and acting. The writing is crispy and balanced. The second half does make you emotional but soon ushers in the ‘good news’ to the viewers. Read full review here.
Director Raj Mehta knows the story he wants to tell and his audience. The gags are funny, especially the banter between Akshay and Kareena are all very well crafted and seems genuine. Things do get uncomfortable at times and it certainly lacks the sharpness of Vicky Donor and Badhaai Ho, buthe eventually manages to land it where it should. While the screenplay is mostly taut, the change of tone, and a massive one at that, happens rather suddenly. Read full review here.
