Jai Mummy Di Reviews (Top Critics)

By Anupama Chopra

I know that it's hard to feel sorry for me. I speak from a place of privilege. After all, I watch movies for a living. But sometimes the films I endure are so downright awful that I feel it's legitimate for me to whine a little. Today is that day. And Jai Mummy Di is that film. Jai Mummy Di's only redeeming factor is that it's short. Genuinely, there is nothing else I can recommend in this film - the acting is bizarre, the writing is sloppy, the plot is incoherent and the background music is so purposefully annoying that you want to weep.

JAI MUMMY DI is the story of two lovers whose mothers are sworn enemies of each other. Delhi-based engineering students, Puneet Khanna (Sunny Singh) and Saanjh Bhalla (Sonnalli Seygall), are in love with each other. Saanjh proposes to Puneet but the latter declines. He too wants to settle down with Saanjh but is afraid of his mother.

The story, if any, is about two neighbouring families who are at a war with each other since forever. We have Puneet (Sunny Singh) and Saanjh (Sonnalli Seygall) who are shown in the introductory scene but soon we see them smooching in their college. That registers of how they're pretending to fight just because their mothers can't stand each other.

How wrong can you go with a movie starring two veteran actresses as bitter rivals whose children are in love with each other? As Jai Mummy Di proves, very. The title is misleading. Navjot Gulati's directorial debut isn't about the maters at all but about the familias.

Saanjh Bhalla (Sonnalli Seygall) and Puneet Khanna (Sunny Singh) are next door neighbours and secret high-school sweethearts. But, their mothers - Pinky (Poonam Dhillon) and Laali (Supriya Pathak) - are constantly at loggerheads owing to an old unsettled score, which turns out to be the biggest hurdle in their relationship.

By Shubhra Gupta (1.5/5)

Loud Punjabi mummyjis have long been a Bollywood staple. No self-respecting romance moves unless the mummyji approves: this is a given. The title is apt, and make you smile. Sadly, the spark doesn't percolate into the film, which comes off banal and dull.

By Namrata Joshi

Jai Mummy Di is a cake that just refuses to rise. The basic problem is the thin and flimsy idea that it is built on. A young couple - Puneet (Sunny Singh) and Sanjh (Sonnalli Seygall) -have to work around their constantly bickering mothers, Pinky and Laali (Poonam Dhillon and Supriya Pathak Shah), to finally get married.

Two warring neighbourhood families face moral dilemma when their kids fall in love with each other. Punnu (Sunny Singh) and Saanjh (Sonnalli Seygall) fall in love, break up and then again fall in love two weeks before their wedding, which is on the same day because their respective mothers won't let go the opportunity to rub each other the wrong way. The mothers, played by Supriya Pathak and Poonam Dhillon, are college friends-turned-foes. Apparently, they share some dark secret.

If you are a fan of director Luv Ranjan's brand of visceral misogyny in Pyaar Ka Punchnama 1 and 2 and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, and that is what you are hoping to get in Jai Mummy Di, then you will be disappointed. This new film, despite being co-produced by Ranjan, displays a surprising lack of animosity towards women.
