From Ranveer, Sid discovers a formula to keep himself and his family happy !!!

Positive Points :-
In case you are a man looking for a fool-proof plan for a happy married life, then here it is “If you make a mistake, you say sorry … If she makes a mistake, you only say sorry.”
The movie deals with problems faced after getting married and also the dilemmas that one faces after becoming a parent! The first half is hilarious and doesn’t stop laughing for even a single second.
Speaking of performances, after a very long time we have two actors who have such effortless chemistry between each other. Farhan and Vidya look believable in every shot and a special mention goes to Farhan for his fine expressions and effortless wit.
Negative Points :-
The film is far too male-centric in its approach and is written totally from the male point of view. The second half of the film doesn’t really have that engaging quality that the first half possesses. It also has been dragged a bit too much which makes the viewers lose interest.
Vir Das is hilarious in his part, but is not given much space to take his character further. Purab Kohli looks like he has been picked from the coffee ad with Karan Johar and Deepika Padukone.
There are few parts which does not seem to be realistic such as the portion where Farhan forgets his child with a strange man.
Technical Point :-
Director Saket has done a decent job. The dialogues by Arshad Sayed in the first half are a riot while Farhan’s lines especially will provide some good laughs.
The songs are decent and because they are only a few and they do not act as a hindrance in the plot. The cinematography is natural and while some sharp editing helps in keeping the screenplay tight.
