Good Newwz helms the story of two couples who try to have a baby through In vitro fertilisation technique. Both the content and the performances of the film impressed the audience after the music created the right buzz. The film has got a revamped version of the popular Punjabi number from the 90s – Sauda Khara Khara, along with a Lohri special song titled Laal Ghaghra. The colourful humour and peppy appeal of the film successfully attracted the audience to the theatres and it benefitted amazing from the New Year holidays.
The film now faces competition from Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and Deepika Padukone starrer Chhapaak that hit the screens on January 9. Good Newwz will also share the screens with Rajinikanth’s Darbar which releases on the same day.
