Why you should not watch Ki & Ka

“I would like some realism please.”

“Sorry Ma’am, we cannot offer that cause we lack it big time.”

That’s precisely the response you’d get from Ki and Ka. It’s a case of severe metaphor-fail and you can see it’s disappointing repercussions in the new Kit Kat ad featuring Ki (Kareena Kapoor) and Ka (Arjun Kapoor) besides the film itself.

Despite being a film that aims to promote the fresh idea of a progressive ‘housemaker’ man who is wedded to a working woman, Ki and Ka fails to bring about an impacting message. The over-the-top unrealistic dialogues, screenplay and acting smothers the message to a painful death, much to the extent of irking me.

The only ‘R Balki’ trait that I found in the film was Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan’s cameo which served the purpose that salt would serve in tea- it just didn’t make sense. Not only the film was bad (read intolerable, at most instances), the music was no less a sucker. I mean, what’s a film without hum-worthy songs?

Ki and Ka was unnecessarily dragged into double conflict resolved with the obviously and extremely annoying happy ending (I’m sure you’ll know why extremely annoying after watching it). Kareena acted too bad in Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon but this film struck as a more annoying one than that even though the actors did pretty well excluding Swaroop Sampat who played Kia’s mother. Now I’m sure you can imagine the impending two-hour-horror if you’ve booked tickets for this one.

I like to judge! Wait, before you judge me, let me tell you that I like constructive judgement which in other words means that I review stuff. I'm one of those who start looking at a music video on YouTube and end up watching a Short film or a Tech Video, that is, something on entirely different lines. I like to wander in that virtual world while sipping on my tea. And thus, I'm here to describe the discoveries of my wanderings.
