Ki And Ka Review

The film revolves around two people, their love story and their marriage. Kia (Kareena Kapoor) is a marketing professional who works in a big company and is the bread-winner while Kabir Bhansal (Arjun Kapoor) is the son of a rich father who owns a lucrative construction business and his ambition in life is to be like his mother, a housewife. While the initial courtship period is all cute, the real story begins post the couple's marriage. This marriage is quite unique with Kia tying the mangalsutra to Kabir, she goes out and earns, while he cleans the house, cooks and does everything a housewife would do.

Coming to the negative aspects of this film, the problem lies in the writing and not with the concept. R. Balki struck with a plot of gold when it came to thinking about this unique concept for the movie but he failed to put it across on the big silver screen. R.Balki is a film maker who has broken the stereotypes with his previous films, yet in this we see him incorporate a lot of clinched ideologies and strays away from what he had began the story with.

Overall Ki and Ka is a one time watch.

Ki & Ka, the romantic comedy that claims to explore gender roles in a marriage, comes across as a concept that will give director R. Balki a chance to change the world — one good film, at a time.

Kareena is engaging to watch, while Arjun does his best to make Kabir endearing. He is good, but we wish these two were given a stronger script to wrestle with.

The cameo from Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan is fun to watch, but they doesn’t have the collective power to elevate this average film into a spectacular one. Just like a marriage that has seen better days, this film was potent with promise but doesn’t cash in on its potential.

Reserve this for a one-time watch.

The film Ki and Ka is a purely entertaining movie hence doesn’t think about the repercussions the concept of the film will have on the families treading their path. So, if you are catching up this film, you need to catch the film simply for fun and gala time with friends and not to find any lessons in it since no one has the guts as shown by the Kabir in this film.

The content of the film is good, the story is different and new that add up freshness to the typical masala movies hitting the theaters every now and then. In a sense, you can find some amount of freshness with Ki and Ka, and all the good and competitive efforts of the filmmakers, the rating the film deserves should be certainly higher.
