In the recent past, Bollywood filmmakers have been lured by the idea of making high-concepts films – exploring subjects that have never explored before. The success of films like ‘Padman’, ‘Badhaai Ho’, ‘Stree’, ‘Andhadhun’ and more recently, ‘Bala’ have encouraged filmmakers to tap into novel and unique ideas. ‘Good Newwz’, starring Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh, is a film which touches upon the subject of ‘sperm mix-up’.
While the idea might seem absurd initially, when you delve deeper into it, you realise it is quite an unique idea which could be explored to create a cinematic world filled with confusion, laughter and even emotions. Debutante director Raj Mehta has tried to do that with ‘Good Newwz’ and if the trailer is any indication, he has managed to do that rather successfully. The trailer grips you in the first few seconds and evokes laughter as you watch it further. Wait for the last shot! While the trailer delivers laughter aplenty, you also get to see the emotional touch in the story in the last few shots.
This is easily one of the best trailers one has seen this year and if the film turns out to be as good as the trailer, the makers will be greeted with good news (or ‘Good Newwz’ in this case) on 27th December, 2019 and on the subsequent days.
