“Jai Mummy Di” Review: A Film That Lacks Charm, Chemistry & Comedy

Mohnish Singh |Jan 17, 2020

“Jai Mummy Di” stars Sunny Singh, Sonnalli Seygall, Supriya Pathak and Poonam Dhillon in central characters. Helmed by Navjot Gulati, the movie enters theatres on 17th January.

Jai Mummy Di is a light-hearted family comic-caper coming from the house of Bhushan Kumar and Luv Ranjan who have previously collaborated on a couple of successful projects, the last one being De De Pyaar De (2019). Sunny Singh and Sonnalli Seygall, who play the lead couple in the movie, have previously worked together on Luv Ranjan’s 2015 hit Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2. Since the names associated with Jai Mummy Di have delivered successful films in the past, audiences had a lot of expectations from the film. But does it meet their high expectations or disappoints them? Let’s find out!

Story: Saanjh Bhalla (Sonnalli Seygall) and Puneet Khanna (Sunny Singh) are next door neighbours who fall in love in high-school, break-up and then again fall in love two weeks before their wedding. Their constantly bickering mothers Pinky (Poonam Dhillon) and Laali (Supriya Pathak), who were once best friends, are the biggest hurdle in their romance. How the couple works around them to finally get married is what forms the crux of the story.

Critical Analysis: Jai Mummy Di has been promoted as a family comedy, but if we keep a couple of genuinely rib-tickling one-liners aside, there is nothing funny about this film. The script does not have enough humour to fill its 103 minutes long running time. It does start on a promising note, but soon you realize that you have spent your money and time on a wrong film.

The biggest disappointment of the film is its cast. Sunny Singh, who has a couple of films on his resume, looks the same in every film, no matter what the situation is. Surprisingly, all his outings so far have been in the comical zone only, so we cannot really say how well he can pull off other genres. Sonnalli Seygall is not great either. She wastes yet another opportunity to prove her talent. The chemistry between the Sunny and Sonnalli is so bland that you want the camera focus on everything but them.

The talent of seasoned actresses Supriya Pathak and Poonam Dhillon has been totally wasted. Their characters are loud, insufferably colourful and caricaturish. You feel pity for them as the script does not do justice to their talent.

Final Verdict: Jai Mummy Di does not guarantee more than a few laughs. Performances from the lead cast are nothing exciting and so are the screenplay and dialogues. You better wait for its digital or television premiere than making an effort to visit theatre. I am going with 1 star.
