I won't say that i'm a huge fan of Akshay Kumar movies. especially because he is making some really stupid movies nowadays. If i pick up few of his last movies like De Dana Dan, Housefull, Kambaqt Ishq, CC2C, Singh is King, Welcome etc, there is not a single movie which i regretted watching. However, i still try to watch a movie forgetting what the cast and crew had done earlier.
Khatta Meetha, what i believe, was promoted as a comedy, i mean i atleast got that kind of vibes from the trailers, However, it didn't turn out to be one of Akshay's out n out comedies. Thank God to that.
Khatta Meetha was not one of Priyadarshan's attempt to create another laughter riots. I only wished, if they hadn't promoted it as one.
The biggest attraction of the movie was Akshay Kumar and if you have a comic movie in hand, i don't believe there is any better option. Akshay kumar, Rajpal Yadav and Manoj Joshi - the three usual's of a Priyadarshan movies. All of them have given a good performance.
Manoj Joshi is one actor i want to point out here. I have never talked about his earlier but he is one of my favorite character artists. He has given performances worthy of being applauded.
Trisha makes her Hindi Movie debut with this movie. She is a huge star in the Southern movie industry and have been awarded for her brilliant performances many times.
The cast of the movie looked very convincing.
The story unfolds with how sachin fights against the bad people and his own family.
Akshay Kumar, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Urvashi Sharma , Manoj Joshi and Rajpal yadav has put in good performances but there is nothing in the script. I have heard that the original Malayalam version on the movie was a super hit, though, i haven't seen it but heard it from reliable sources. The malayalam version was also directed by Priyadarshan. Priyadarshan was not able to create the magic again
Well, there were many. As soon as the movie starts, with in 30 mins you can guess the climax. There were many scenes which i felt was not required but were kept for god knows what reasons. The music is bad. I didn't even like one song from the movie.
5/10 for me
