Khatta Meetha - Movie Review

Neither Khatta, nor Meetha
By Naresh Kumar Deoshi

By now we’ve witnessed too many goofball acts by Akshay to be amused by this one, but, to his credit, the actor does make the ride a little less bumpy and boring. Trisha fails to impress in her Bollywood debut. In fact, Urvashi Sharma, who has a marginal role, is better than her. Manoj Joshi, as always, hollers his lungs out, and Milind Gunaji doesn’t go beyond glowers and scowls. Rajpal Yadav does inject some fun to the flaccid script, while Asrani’s character could have been totally done away with.

Pritam’s mediocre tunes (with the song ‘Bullshit’ no better than its name) and Manikandan’s cinematography fail to spice up Khatta Meetha. As for the story, you just keep waiting for the moment when Akshay’s lame Sachin Tichkule will trot to heroism. That sadly doesn’t happen until the last ten minutes of the movie.

The humour in Khatta Meetha is bland and even borders on double-meaning ribaldry. In one dialogue a corrupt neta tells his bodyguard to frisk Makrand Deshpande properly. The neta says: “Uski acchi tereh se lena,” then after a long pause adds, “talaashi”.

After watching Khatta Meetha you feel Priyadarshan wanted to do the same with audiences.
