Storyline

Satara-based petty road-works contractor, Sachin Tichkule, faces challenges when the Satara Municipal Corporation puts a hold on his payment. He decides to sue them, while his extended family deal with the crisis of a recently-collapsed bridge resulting in 65 deaths. If matters were not bad enough, the new Municipal Commissioner is none other than his estranged girlfriend/ex-collegian, Gehna Ganpule. Sachin had abused and assaulted her in Mumbai a few years ago, and she is now determined to blacklist him at any and all costs. While comically dealing with indolent employees, his sister's marriage, an elephant, a road-roller &c. he lands in even more hot water when the local police get ready to prosecute him for alleged Sexual Molestation, as well as Assault and Threats to Kill Gehna's brother.

Midas has lost his golden touch!
21 September 2010 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

No matter what the fate of his earlier works, Priyadarshan has reached a stage where audience still remembers his glorious days and patronise his latest outing in a hoping for a gratifying experience. You & me fall into the "Khatta Meetha" trap for this very reason. The product is not too bad, but then not up to the mark either. The audience has a disconnect as there are many places where the plot loses steam. A little bit of sincere effort could have turned the tables. The product is glossy and music is peppy but that doesn't help much. Comedy is good only at certain places.

Akki:: The sole reason he has associated with Priyan is in a hope of a hit. Its getting evident that his performance is nearing to being termed as loud.

Trisha:: Bollywood gets a taster session of this actress who has string of hits on her resume down-south. She is just about OK as "Khatta Meetha" doesn't showcase her talents to the fullest glory.

Tinnu Anand & Aruna Irani:: Hardly had any role.

Rajpal Yadav, Johnny Lever & Asrani:: Should take a break from Priyan movies. Its getting on the nerves honestly.

Khulbhushan Kharbanda:: Bad characterisation. I did not fathom why was he up against Akki all the time.

The original "Khatta Meetha" (directed by Basu Chatterjee in 1978) is a classic in comparison.
