Overall Review: Mother’s Day is the latest star-studded ensemble comedy from director Garry Marshall (‘Pretty Woman,’ ‘Valentine’s Day’) bringing together Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and Julia Roberts along with Jason Sudeikisis. Film bets on women dealing with motherhood and affections. The plot is more or less same: romantic comedy with dramatic overtones populated by stereotypical beings with few funny situations. The pace of the movie was haphazard and there was no flow...

Overall Review:
R.Balki (Director of Cheeni Kum, Paa, English Vinglish) is back with Rom-Com of year 2016: “Ki & Ka”.
