Very sour, hardly sweet
23 August 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

I'm totally disappointed by Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi. Rahul Rawail had directed many movies, most of them were not up to the mark, but I did like several of his works such as Betaab, Anjaam, Biwi O Biwi, and to an extent Samundar and Arjun Pandit. Here Rawail follows a very old formula: a comedy involving twin sisters, casting a popular actress to play them. This of course reminds us of classic films like Seeta Aur Geeta, a film I can watch even today over and over again and still be totally entertained. But Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi sadly manages to be not more than a corny and formulaic film which is more tiresome rather than entertaining. And it's not specifically because of the twins, it's because of the incredibly poor script. The comedy, the dialogues, the proceedings, everything sounds extremely hackneyed. The story lacks focus and conviction, it is predictable and forced, and even the songs are forgettable. The twin sisters are played by Kajol. She is the only reason I kept watching the movie right until the end, but she is let down by the script despite trying her best to build two different persons on screen. Watch the 1998 Tanuja Chandra-directed Dushman is which she excelled while playing a double role as well, and you'll see how this pales in comparison (although Dushman focused more on one sister and was far from a comedy). The less said about Sunil Shetty - the better. Rishi Kapoor is pretty likable as the father, and Rati Agnihotri is beautiful and lovely. Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi is unfunny and it's so meaningless that even Kajol can't save it. I assure that you can easily find something to spend your time on, something worthier.
