Mister Mummy Review: This unusual comedy is quirky, eccentric and filled with slapstick humour. Riteish and Genelia’s chemistry is also something that we have missed for quite a long time on the big screen and they are perfect in their respective roles.

Mister Mummy Story: What happens when a man who hates kids gets pregnant at the same time when his wife is also pregnant? Sounds quite unusual and strange, isn’t it? Well, that’s the crux of this off-beat comedy.
Mister Mummy Review
Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza are well and truly back together on the big screen. They are fantastic throughout this comedy and their chemistry is certainly something that we have missed seeing. The duo works so well together that you can’t help but appreciate their mutual understanding of each other both in real and reel life.
Even though the plot is a daring one, the movie does not get wayward with its storytelling and sticks to what it can do best. Riteish is gold when it comes to comedy and this is just another movie where he has nailed his role. There is nothing to complain about him. Genelia is as always likeable and fun to watch. There is something about her that makes people wanna like her and it works wonderfully in favour of her.
Mahesh Manjrekar as the doctor is fascinating and interesting to watch. The man just knows how to handle himself in all sorts of roles. He again delivers with his versatility. He is perhaps one of the most underrated Indian actors with an insane reach.
Shaad Ali has done well to keep the film crisp and interesting. Avoiding unnecessary sub-plots and sticking to the humour generated from the main crux of the story has kept the film fresh and authentic. He has done exceedingly fine by not being drawn into the temptation of including everything and anything just for the sake of the comedy.
All in all Mister Mummy is a fun ride that you should consider watching this weekend.
