The movie puts a fantastic new spin on the usual. As & when Ayushmann and Sanya’s love story was in the center stage all of the sudden you see the middle-aged parents blush with romance.
The entertainment really becomes novel his uneventful life is rocked when his endearing parents announce their accidental late pregnancy that is played impeccably by Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao.
