Movie Review: Khatta Meetha (2010)

Akshay Kumar helps Priyadarshan squeeze out yet another turd

That people not only sit through but also feel entertained by movies like these is difficult to fathom. Shouted out lines, exaggerated facial expressions, cheesy dialogue is what has been passing off as comedy for quite some time now. Lousy jokes, embarrassingly predictable slapstick humour, and the kind of insipid drama that comes on TV make up Priyadarshan’s Khatta Meetha.

That Akshay Kumar isn’t the most versatile actor around becomes even more obvious as he hams his way though the movie as Sachin Tichkule. He’s a civil contractor and tries to make you laugh by using his surname in different situations and mouthing stupid lines that the other idiots in the film are just waiting to add more pointlessness to. Most of what Akshay Kumar says or does or what goes on in Khatta Meetha is not funny, unless watching Rajpal Yadav getting slapped every now and then makes you laugh, which would mean your IQ is really low.

That people will find a bunch of loser actors and a few veterans participating in this silliness funny and will make a shoddy film like this run for a few weeks is terrible to know. Even the South Indian actress is a bad actor, but at least there’s Urvashi Sharma to look at.

That Khatta Meetha could have been a sweet & sour story, a full-blown satire or a family entertainer would have been anybody’s guess, but it’s just another piece of crap from Priyadarshan, who should be thanked for not bringing in Sunil Shetty and Paresh Rawal in a lungi.

    Damn! Bro, I thought that this movie would be a laughter riot. As it is based on one of the most endearing, satirical & popular characters of the 20th and 21st century India, the ‘Common Man’ by a truly outstanding satirical writer, R.K. Laxman which in Hindi loosely translates to ‘Aam Junta’ i.e. ‘Mango Man’.

    I knew that it will have slapstick humor without a plot. As having a ‘plot’ is alien to Indian cinema barring few ones like Firaaq, Raja Harishchandrachi Factory, Natarang & 3 Idiots that released in past few months.

    At least, commoners will identify with this movie. I wish, there was a perfect timing to go along with satirical humor. It would have been a delightful watch. And it’s totally unjustified to insert some inane tracks in between which disrupts the flow of the movie if there is any.

    Clearly, I am totally disheartened as I thought that after 3 Idiots, this is the movie which would give me a reason to smile and some chuckles in return for my moolah spent on it. The concept of an intricately woven plot is totally an alien concept in most movies that tend to raise the bar in mediocrity than finesse!

    Will the real, visionary film makers please step up and come forward????????

    It seems, bro, that only consolation in watching this movie is the bikini clad babe whose pics you have posted! It seems, that babe is the only saving grace in this inane movie devoid of funny situations and satire! 😉
