Khatta Meetha Movie Review by Movie Critics
Taran Adarsh (BollywoodHungama.com) 1.5/5
Khatta Meetha is a major letdown from the accomplished director. It’s not a full-blown comedy. It’s not a full-scale satire either. Hugely disappointing!
Nikhat Kazmi (The Times of India) 3/5
The film is too long and has too much of high-pitched drama, leaving room for too little of the laughter circus.
Rajeev Masand (CNN-IBN) 1/5
Khatta Meetha; this is cinema at its most tasteless.
Kaveree Bamzai (India Today) 1/5
At over two hours, it is silly, noisy, and repetitive. It’s also weirdly misogynistic
Sukanya Verma (Rediff) 2/5
The story with its baggage of generic turns and contrived twists seems all too familiar in making its even-now significant point
Shubhra Gupta (Indian Express) 2/5
It is criminally long, burdened with flat comedy tracks as faulty as Sachin Tichkule’s roads
Gaurav Malani (IndiaTimes) 1.5/5
Khatta Meetha lacks wit and sarcasm and by no means can be termed as a political satire
K.K Rai (Stardust) 2/5
Despite of the deadly combination of Akshay Kumar and Priyadarshan in the making of ‘Khatta Meetha’, it fails to create the magic of their earlier outings like ‘Hera Pheri’, A below average flick.
Khalid Mohamed (PassionForCinema.com) 2/5
Priyadarshan’s misleadingly titled Khatta Meetha – believed to be adapted from a vintage Malayalam chuckleberry fest – could well be considered by the Guinness Book of Records for the LOUDEST movie ever made in heaven or earth. Forget mirth, this self-styled comedy pumps up the volume so high that the cacophony could possibly be heard in Patagonia and Perth. Quick suggestion: if you’re venturing out to this kerfuffle, do carry cotton buds. Or leave your ears at home.
Mayank Shekhar (Hindustan Times) 1/5
The jokes, you can tell, have pretty much dried up. No amount of slapstick will wet this pool.
