Someone has told the truth that comedy is very serious business. Indeed, everyone is not just a matter of comedy. If you did not mold the characters in the story in a comic manner, then you failed to make me laugh. The same has happened in director Navjot Gulati's 'Jai Mummy Di'. The film may be of comedy jorner, but in the film you have less moments of laughter and more glimpses of superficial and force humor.

Story: The film starts in a very comic style, where two families living in Delhi live side by side, but there is a lot of animosity between them. In college, Pinki (Poonam Dhillon) and Lali (Supriya Pathak) may have had a close-knit friendship, but now both see each other and swear to bite like a cat cat. Their family is also managed by their enmity. Pinky and Lali are unaware that their children Punit Khanna (Sunny Singh) and Sanjha Bhalla (Sonali Sehgal) have been in love with each other for a long time. The twist in the story comes when, despite Sanjh proposing to Punit for marriage, he is not able to fear yes. Unhappy Sanjh's marriage is decided elsewhere and in his rivalry, Lali decides the relationship of his son Puneet elsewhere. Meanwhile, Puneet and Sanjh realize that they are made for each other. Just what? They try to break up their respective weddings.

Review: The problem of director Navjot's direction is that he has chosen a very thin line story, which he could not elaborate. That is why nothing happens till the interval. The story moves at a very slow pace. There are some laughable one liners in the film, but they do not hold much. The story moves a bit after Interval, but the irrational and childish scenes do not take the film to any conclusion. When the reason for Pinkie and Lali's enmity opens in the Climax, there is a feeling of being cheated as a viewer. The glut of songs in the film creates hindrance rather than complementing the story.

Sunny Singh as Puneet Khanna has tried his best to create an impact in his character. Sonali is glamorous as Sanjha, but has not been able to catch the right tone of her role. Sunny and Sonali were earlier seen in 'Pyaar Ka Panchnama 2', but the chemistry between the two is missing here. Poonam Dhillon and Supriya Pathak have been given the titles of Mogambo and Gabbar in the film, but nothing like that appears in their characters. In fact, his characters have not been coined properly. The experience of these two actresses is reflected in their performance, but due to loud and melodrama, they do not remain effective.

Why to Watch: If you do not watch this film, then you will not be harmed.
