The release of Khatta Meetha makes certain things clear. There is no need of a script, there is no need of actors, music can be anything that can just classify to be called music, background score need not be in sync with what is happening in the scene, direction can be equivalent to a newborn learning how to shit, and the sequences through the movie need not be interlinked. Priyadarshan is on a movie making spree and that could be probably because he needs to meet a certain target before he gives up. But uncle please spare us.
Is he the same film-maker who made Hera Pheri, Hungama, Hulchul? The king of situational comedy gifted with a good sense of cinematic humor makes even proven comics like Johnny Lever and Rajpal Yadav look like fools. Lever does a bizzare role of a driver of a road-roller. And his act in this movie is like a threat to all his previous works. Even Makrand Deshpande has been wasted. Not one moment or part of the movie is worth mentioning. The movie was more like a torture to me and I wish I had carried some cyanide along with me.
The only face worth remembering on my way back home was that of Urvashi Sharma who has been presented non-glamorously. And if I have not talked about the lead pair, let me make it clear that Trisha has nothing to do in the movie so I really do not know whether she can act or not, and Akshay Kumar irritates you so much that you would rather prefer to call up someone in the middle of the movie and distract yourself. Akshay Kumar has done worse movies though. Remember brain-fucking Chandni Chowk To China?
Khatta Meetha is a noisy lavatory and it does not even do so much as to let you take a peaceful dump. Avoid!
