What’s It About
Sunny Singh and Sonnalli Seygall are madly in love. However, their mothers, who’re childhood buddies and neighbours can’t stand each other. Will the fear of their mothers allow the young couple to get married? Will they go against the wishes of their mothers? Will they elope? Or will they concoct a cock and bull story and get their mothers finally forgive each other? Well, you’ll have to watch the movie for the same.
In a movie which is backed by such established names, having fairly popular actors, you will breathe a sigh of relief when the Lamborghini song comes up in the closing titles. Going by that, you have a fair idea about how bad the film was.
After doing a good enough performance in ‘Ujda Chaman’, Sunny Singh is back in the gutters. The actor, who has immense potential, has been let down with a character which doesn’t have too much to offer.
Same goes with Sonnalli Seygall. She looks so breathtakingly sext in every frame, but the script and screenplay make her look like just a piece of furniture in the whole scheme of things.
Talking about the story, it was a decent one-liner of a story. However, there are many one-liners which should remain one-liners or at max, be a short film. They should never end up getting budget enough for a full-fledged feature presentation. Jai Mummy Di is one such example.
The direction by Navjot Gulati is haywire and all over the place. You will be left squandering for a decent screenplay till the last frame of the movie.
Most importantly, the marketing of the movie as a film about two warring moms. When you market a movie saying that it’s about two moms who don’t see eye to eye and their children fall in love, you’re expecting a lot of fireworks when the two moms come face to face. However, fireworks are nothing other than phuski bombs, which promise a lot but end up wasting your time and creating a mess. The movie hardly has fight scenes between the two mothers, played by two veteran stellar actors like Supriya Pathak and Poonam Dhillon. It’s all and all about the love story between the lead pair. Sad!
Lastly, I feel sad to see actors like Supriya Pathak and Poonam Dhillon wasted up in a script like this. They have the least amount of screen space and your whole mood will be put off just waiting and waiting for them to come on screen and light up the fireworks. Very poor judgement, we must say!
AVOID! This movie is not even worth the amount of paper used to print out the script for the cast and crew. I am going with 1 star just for the Lamborghini song at the end.
Considering that there are no other releases this week, the film might have a decent opening day. However, the bad word-of-mouth might catch up by the evening shows and seal the fate of the film. To add to it, the holdover titles of ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’, ‘Chhapaak’ and ‘Good Newwz’ are all still doing well, and audiences would much rather view them than watching this botched up comedy film.
