    Good Newwz to collect Rs 22.50 crore?

    Trade analyst Sumit Kadel wrote, "#GoodNewwz Saturday- ₹ 21-22.50 cr nett. ( Early estimates) VERY GOOD growth."

    The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave the film a positive review. Shubhra wrote in her three star review, “The film works best when it is being its bawdy, silly, raucous self. It dips when it veers towards bring-out-the-hankies emotion bowing to the dictum of ‘how can a Bollywood film not make you laugh and cry at the same time’. When will filmmakers get past this hoary belief?”

    “That being said, you can see that this is a film that’s been written, not assembled on the fly. And that’s really the best news. The characters are distinct, there’s a flow, and at the film’s core, an idea. It dips here and there, sure, but never abandons its cheery gallop to the finish line. Net net, Good Newwz is not half bad,” she added.
