Here’s what the critics are saying about Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor starrer ‘Ki & Ka’:
Large swathes of Ki & Ka are fun, considerable sections of it are unexpectedly broad-minded, path-breaking for Bollywood and insightful. The problem is that we can section it off in this fashion. Ultimately, what fails the film is its mixed messaging and choppy texture.
Ki And Ka might feel like the two longest hours of your life. Balki sets out to demolish stereotypes, but in the process, ends up affirming them even more. Watch it only if you swear by Kareena or Arjun. Or good germs of films spoilt by bad execution.
Too much breakfast and coffee table drama steals the steam from this well intentioned film. Ki & Ka isn’t a strong voice against gender stereotyping, but it’s one of its kind in mainstream Hindi film industry, and that makes it notice-worthy.
The film is fun when it is setting up the roles. But the execution, as it goes along, gets rocky. Much of it stays episodic, and starts reinforcing the very stereotypes it set out to negate.
Despite the promise of an interesting story, Ki & Ka does not meet expectations primarily because of a weak screenplay and a cliched approach.
