Khatta Meetha (Hindi: खट्टा मीठा, translation: "Sour Sweet") is a 2010 Hindi satire directed by Priyadarshan that stars Akshay Kumar and Trisha Krishnan in the lead roles. The film is a remake of the 1988 Malayalam film, Vellanakalude Nadu, scripted by Sreenivasan, also directed by Priyadarshan and starring Mohanlal and Shobana in the lead roles.[2] Khatta Meetha was released on July 23, 2010.



The film revolves around a struggling road constructor, Sachin Tichkule (Akshay Kumar). He dreams big but there seems to be no chance of his dreams coming true as he doesn't have any money to bribe the bureaucracy. To make matters worse, the new municipal commissioner turns out to be his former girlfriend, Gehna Ganpule (Trisha Krishnan), who now hates him. As Sachin stumbles from one disaster to another, the film brings to light the extent of corruption that's rampant in the system.

Critical reception

Upon release, the film received mixed to negative reviews from critics. Rajeev Masand of CNN-IBN rated the film 1 out of 5 saying, "Khatta Meetha is a schizophrenic film".[5] Sukanya Verma of Rediff gave it 2/5 saying, "The story with its baggage of generic turns and contrived twists seems all too familiar in making its even-now significant point. In addition, it seems a tad too long at its three hours running time.[6] Mayank Shekhar of the Hindustan Times gave it 1/5 and stated, "This one’s about wacky Akki alone. Truly, few things unite Indians, besides a high illiteracy rate, and films of Bollywood superstars. One benefits from the other. And Priyadarshan gets to churn out his own no-brainer remakes every other week."[7] Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama rated the film 1.5/5 while stating, "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!"[8] Blessy Chettiar of DNA gave it a rating of 2/5 and said, "Khatta Meetha is a hotchpotch of too much drama and very little comedy".[9] Nikhat Kazmi of the Times of India gave it the highest rating of 3/5 saying, "Tune off a bit for the tedious middle and you could be in for some fun and frolic in Khatta Meetha".[10] On the review-aggregation website ReviewGang, the film scored 3.5/10 based on 6 reviews.[11]
