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.

Khatta Meetha is an excellent film made by Akshay Kumar & Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision Ltd,., directed by Priyadarshan. It is the movie for the common man, who will enjoy watching it. It will be enjoyed by every Indian who knows and has some experience of the government and the beuraucracy. Akshay Kumar is fantastic and truly transforms himself in this film. He has breathed life into Sachin Tichkule, his character in the movie. It will be remembered as one of his best movies. The film did not do better business, though it is an average hit because the critics had run it down. I am increasingly feeling that they are anti Akshay or have lost touch with what the Indian audiences like. Those who have missed it in the theaters will I sure love it when they see it on TV and will then know that it was more pleasurable watching it than other so called critically acclaimed movies released during that period. They will know how not o trust those critics. These critics are very seriously a confused lot who give an amateur fare like Tere BIn Laden a f star and internationally acclaimed movie like Red Alert, a 2 star. The movie is a satire and has its happy and sad moments. And the director has done an excellent job of putting everything together and getting a good work from all actors. The movie has a good story, a family an honest retired judge whose children and in-laws are just the opposite and are corrupt And one of the children happen to be Akshay who is corrupt but has a conscience. The actors Akshay , Rajpal Yadhav, Jonny Lever, Kulbhushan Karbhanda, Aruna Irani, Asrani ... have all done an excellent job. Wish Trisha could have had more spunk. But even that does not affect the move. The songs are good and are not out of place. All in all it was an enjoyable experience and had the audience on that first weekend rolling with laughter.
