There are expensive IVF consultations that simply make it difficult to find any good solution.

The movie succeeds in projecting what happens when a couple is not able to get what they desire since there are two partners in the process.

Only if things would go as per plan, the story prompts one to take a lighter look at life. It is definitely a perfect watch for young couples to make them realize that not everything is within one’s control. Besides the routine medical procedures, when the couple is flooded by loads of alternative suggestions from Katie’s mother, John’s brother and his wife, the situation only turns hilarious. Slowly and steadily the couple is confused in every possible way. Overwhelmed by wide array of suggestions, they are totally unsure about what they really want in the first place. Be it trying out herbal medicines to meeting spiritual healers, their funny encounters add unexpected episodes of laughter. And finally when two alternative methods clash into each other, their confusion increases to a great extent. All of this puts toll on their physical, mental, social and financial conditions, while their relationship is put through several tests in the process. The movie succeeds in being unique but it does slip into typical movie clichés once in a while.

Whether they succeed or fail or ultimately end up spoiling their relation is the interesting suspense of this funny entertainer. Watch ‘Making babies’ for the fun-filled joyride of something beautiful disguised into everything that is hilarious.
