Movie Review: 'Jai Mummy Di' is utter rubbish

'Bad – worse – worst' - these forms of superlative and comparitive adjectives have been used in the past for many Bollywood films. Luv films' recent release 'Jai Mummy Di' starts on a bad note, and in no time escalates to getting worse, and ends up becoming the worst entertainer. Starring Sunny Singh and Sonali Sehgal in the lead roles, the film hopes to entertain one, but does the opposite!

Supriya Pathak (Laali) and Poonam Dhillon (Pinki) hate each other and for many years, they cannot have a straight conversation. Their children - Sunny (Puneet) and Sonali (Saanjh) - have been fond of each other since their college days. All they want to do is marry each other and be together. But their parents decide to get them married to other families. With an aim to sort out the issue and find a way to get married, they decide to find out the reason for the fight, try running away, etc. The rest of the film focuses on the series of events that unfold in their lives and families.

The only 'mediocre' aspect of the film are the songs, where some are composed and some recreated. Other than that, the film lacks everything that could make it entertaining. Even with a run time of merely 109 minutes, the film seems long and lacks the fundamentals - story, dialogues and entertainment. The writing is hideous and lacks sense, emotions and motive. The narrative of the story revolves around two aspects of the film - their hate and love story. 

Talking about the lead actors, I wish they could act, emote and/or express. Sunny and Sonali unfortunately cannot do any and this has been proved many times in previous films too. On one hand, where these two actors have difficulty, Supriya Pathak and Poonam Dhillon as mummies over act, and that's a total mood off. The only veteran actors who were expected to be the saving grace, unfortunately push it harder and make it worse. The entire cast try hard to spread laughter, hoping to make the audience giggle.

To sum it up, Jai Mummy Di is not just bad, it is unbearable.
