Well Done Baby (2021)
Well Done Baby (2021) is a Marathi language romantic comedy covering the dynamics between a newlywed couple that is complicated with the wife’s mother living with them. The film has no villains or any cinematic happenings. It impresses us with its relatable script authenticity and in its portrayal of the lead couple. It is available on Amazon Prime Video and gets a Mangoidiots rating of ‘Raw’.
Pushkar Jog as Aditya and Amruta Khanvilkar as Meera come out as a typical young couple living in London. Vandana Gupte as the nosy mother-in-law stands out in her performance adding humour to the film.
Aditya and Meera are ambitious in their respective careers and try to project their expectations and disappointments on to the other. This fuels anger. They do love each other but their individuality gets in their way to forgive each other and Meera’s mother who has been living with them is not helping either. The second half of the film was about the couple going to prenatal classes, yoga sessions, and Hypnobirth programs. While the interactions between the couple were enjoyable, the classes got covered more than they should for a non-documentary and that made it a bit tiring.
