Good Newwz started filming in 2018 November and ended filming in 2019 April. Its release to theatres was in December 2019.
Varun Batra, the CEO of a Mumbai Volkswagen showroom and his wife Batra Deepti have been happily married for 7 years. However, they have not yet conceived a baby. Varun’s Sister (Richa) suggests that the married couple visit a reputed fertility doctor Anand Joshi who points towards (IVF) In Vitro Fertilisation, a fertilisation technique which will increase their chances of becoming pregnant. They agree to this method and Varun gives sperm samples and the doctor fertilizes Deepti’s embryo.
After 12 days, Deepti and Varun are called by Anand’s Wife Dr Joshi Sandhya. They subsequently meet the other couple in this storyline, Monika Batra and Honey Batra, from Chandigarh. The new couple has also taken up IVF but Anand reveals that there was a sperm mixup. Varun’s sperms had fertilized Moni’s eggs while Deepti’s eggs had been fertilized with Honey’s sperm.
The doctors advise the two couples to undergo a procedure to prevent the pregnancy but to their utter shock, both of these women become pregnant. Honey and Moni decide to rent an apartment above Varun and Deepti making the whole situation complicated.
For the first 6 months, Deepti and Varun show frustrations against Moni and Honey for the interference in their lives. In the last trimester, with a 7-month pregnancy, Sandhya advises Deepti to talk to Moni as both of them are probably going through the same situation emotionally.
There is a bonding period between the two gentlemen in a bar but ends with Honey being arrested and Varun storming out of the bar. During the night, Moni goes into labour and Varun has to rush her to the hospital. In the long run, there is reconciliation between the two couples as they accept and bond with each other.
