Good Newwz opened to largely mixed reviews from film critics. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film a two-star rating and he wrote: “When Good Newwz is sharp, it generates a mild degree of hilarity, some of it emanating from the vivacity that Dosanjh brings to the table. When it is not, it is pretty pedestrian, wending its way through laboured moments that border on the silly and confused.”
Good Newwz showcases the stories of two couples, who visit the same hospital for the IVF treatment and since both the couples share the last name, their eggs and sperm get mixed up by the hospital staff, leading to a comedy of errors. The film has been directed by Raj Mehta and it has been produced by Karan Johar, Hiroo Yash Johar, Aruna Bhatia, Apoorva Mehta and Shashank Khaitan.
