Cast: Sunny Singh, Sonnalli Seygall, Supriya Pathak, Poonam Dhillon
Director: Navjot Gulati
Jai Mummy Di’s story revolves around a young couple, Puneet (Sunny Singh) and Sanjh (Sonnalli Seygall) who share a history and get back together after a while. They have to work around their constantly quarreling mothers, Pinky Bhalla and Laali Khanna (Poonam Dhillon and Supriya Pathak Kapur), to finally get married. Turns out, their mothers also shared a friendly relationship with each other before turning into such foes. They are neighbours in a north Delhi locality and the bitterness between them is so strong, that the couple is scared to reveal to the families that they have been in love since school.
The film offers a laugh or two but does not compare to Luv Ranjan’s older movies also starring Singh and Seygall. The actors in the movie have done a great job. Makes one wonder that Sunny deserves better scripts now. Veteran actors playing the roles of mothers are always seen screaming and arguing. They pull the story together however Sonnalli’s looks is an eye catcher.
The songs are catchy and adds an element of entertainment in the movie. Navjot Gulati’s direction aimed to bring out this movie as a light comedy movie. The movie takes you to an interesting journey when the couple starts trying to find the reason behind this rivalry. However, the storyline could have made more interesting with more efforts put into the script.
CineSpeaks verdict: The movie is fun movie to watch on this weekend. It is comedy family entertainer.
CineSpeaks give 3 stars.
