The new age Hindi Film makers are unafraid to take the risk and touch subjects that not many would be comfortable in discussing openly. So now we have movies that talks about Erectile Dysfunction, Sperm Donor, LGBT and the latest being the one on Infertility and IVF!!

Good Newwz is a about two couple: one is ultra-swish played by Kareena Kapoor Khan and Akshay Kumar who are both career driven and now on their pursuit to have that elusive pregnancy and then there is another couple Diljeet Dosanj and Kiara Advani who play this naïve, out and loud couple from the land of the Bhangara i.e. Chandigarh.  There is also a third couple who run the IVF Centre played by Adil Hussain and Tisca Chopra.

The couples land at the same IVF Centre and the wife’s are finally able to conceive albeit with the sperm of the other’s husband. So we have Kareena impregnated with Diljeet Dosanj’s spam and Kiara with the sperm of Akshay Kumar and the confusion that follows.

There are some really funny moments about couples timing their copulation with that of the ovulation cycle and trying to make the best of the short interval that they have. Some of the dialogues are crackling and leave you in splits. The confusion after the sperm exchange is fun in bits and pieces.

In all the plot is pretty wafer thin and we know where it’s going to lead. The lead couples are in top form. Kareena and Diljeet can we see you more often, Akshay please get out of your patriotic phase and act in some out and out comedy and Kiara keep doing what you are doing because you are fabulous.

While watching this film I couldn’t help but wonder how a manager at an automobile showroom with a journalist wife manages to have the flat that they have in Mumbai and the lifestyle that they live. This I am talking about Akshay and Kareena and then I realised it’s a Karan Johar film; no one is ever poor and not dressed to the hilt.

Despite some great scenes and funny first half the second half turns a little dramatic although luckily melodrama isn’t there but kind of drags a little longer than is required. The songs too seemed forced with the overplaying of the Punjabi music.

While you take a call on the above film, do remember to visit INDIRA IVF in case of any fertility related issues and not suffer goof-up bcoz they are the only lab in India with #RIWITNESS Technology !!

Dobaara : See your Evil


So it’s been more than a month since Bahubali 2 released and until now there hadn’t been anything worthwhile that made me venture inside a movie theatre. I had been inkling to watch a movie and lo-behold the marketing team of Dobaara made sure it generated enough interest to watch it .

It had everything going for it from the stellar cast of brother-sister duo of Saqib Saleem and Huma Qureshi, Adil Hussain and Lisa Ray in the main leads. With a promise to showcase Bollywood Horror away from the sleaze, gore and background music that is generally dished out in this genre. The premise of this is that there is a Possessed Mirror that blurs lines between real and imaginary world and that makes the owner do all sorts of evil things.

So far so good and we take our seats in a near empty hall and letting that deter our spirits we gear for a chilling movie night. But 15-20 minutes into the movie I realised there is something amiss, half way thru the film there isn’t a single scary moment. The actors hamming it up and trying too hard to look and act the part with a put on Brit accent, mouthing some psychology mumbo-jumbo.

The second part comes and goes barring one scary moment (only if I u insist for this is supposed to be a different Horror Film) there is hardly anything. Too many time shifts and slow pace just doesn’t work for me. For me it was an utter waste of time, money. I would have rather stayed back home and finished the Season 5 of House of Cards. The Underwood’s machinations and definitely more scary than this movie.

Forget ‘Dobara’ and not even worth watching once. Like I say don’t go by opinion, go if u have to but don’t blame me for you are forewarned.
