Katti Batti starring Imran Khan and Kanagana Ranaut in lead roles, directed by Nikhil Advani releases worldwide today. A lot is riding on this movie since Imran Khan is back in action after a huge gap of 2 years, second Kangana Ranaut’s overconfidence with her films post few hits and last but not the least, Nikhil’s last movie, Hero not being a success. So let’s see what Katti Batti beholds.
Cast: Imran Khan, Kangana Ranaut Director: Nikhil Advani Katti Batti Story: The movie opens with the scene of Madhav Kabra (Imran Khan) drinking phenol, his friend and sister taking him to hospital in order to save his life. When they take him back home, starts a flashback of Madhav and Payal’s (Kangana Ranaut) love story.
Then follows a typical rom-com of the boy meets girl, the two fall in love, they move into live-in relationship and then crops up the innumerable differences which ruin their love story. Due to some unexpected twists and turn, Payal ends up leaving Madhav, will the lovers reunite or not, why she left him forms the crux of the story. Performances: Imran Khan who is seen on the silver screen after a huge gap, doesn’t do anything different in the movie. It is a typical Imran Khan role that we have seen him enact in all his typical rom-com movies, there is nothing new that he brings to the plate. Coming to Kangana who has been oozing over-confidence in her media interviews manages to give a decent performance. Unfortunately we do not seen her more on the big screen which disappoints us but she has managed to hold her stand. Technicalities: Nikhil Advani has done it again, after Hero, he has managed to screw up another movie. Katti Batti turns out to a boring old tale that ends up confusing you in a lot of places. A lot of flaws that can’t be overlooked, somewhere it feels like Nikhil made this movie just for the sake of making a movie, no logic, no screenplay, practically nothing worthy of talking about. Katti Batti reminds you of the Hollywood film, Sweet November! Just a failed desi mashup of this Hollywood flick. Verdict: Katti Batti will simply bore you! Either you’ll spend your time crying over all the sad scenes or the fact that you bought the movie tickets. Katti Batti can be missed, watch at your own risk!
