Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor's 'Good Newwz' has become a 'good news' at the Box Office in the realest sense. The film hit the theatres on December 27, and has since been cruising its way to becoming a blockbuster. Featuring Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani in lead roles, 'Good Newwz' minted Rs 39.34 crore in two days. The movie has done well on its third day too, making it a profitable weekend.
As per the latest reports from Box Office India, the film has managed to collect Rs 25-26 crore nett on Sunday. "The film has gone up around 20 per cent on Sunday which is excellent for a metro film. It is the festive holiday period which may have helped the evening collections a little. The weekend number will be in the 64-65 crore nett which is the second-best ever for an Akshay Kumar starrer after the 67 crore nett plus of Mission Mangal but that film had a huge first day holiday. The trend over the weekend is strong and the film should be uble to hold up well on Monday and then take benefit of the holiday factor on Tuesday and Wednesday," the report said.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#GoodNewwz lives up to its title... Metros [especially North circuits] outstanding... Multiplexes of Tier-2 cities very good... Mass pockets witness growth... Eyes ₹ 65 cr [+/-] total [opening weekend]... Fri 17.56 cr, Sat 21.78 cr. Total: ₹ 39.34 cr. #India biz."
IndiaTV reviews the film as "primarily a comedy movie -- with genuine humour (in places though), exceptional comic timing displayed by Akshay Kumar and Diljit Dosanjh, and a dash of tear-jerking scenes."
The film directed by Raj Mehta revolves around a sperm mix-up between two Batra couples -- divided by levels of sophistication.
