What Is Good

  • Kareena
  • Arjun Kapoor
  • Amitabh
  • Jaya Bachchan's cameo

What Is Bad

  • Screenplay
  • Music
  • Lots of cliches
Bottom Line: Save your time and money


'Ki and Ka' is one of the most anticipated romantic comedies and the trailer itself said that the movie will explore more into gender roles in a marriage. R.Balki who gave hard hitting 'Shamitabh' is back with a new and fresh genre. Kia (Kareena) is a marketing professional and she aspires to conquer the corporate world. Kabir (Arjun Kapoor) is planning to be a house wife even though his father has lucrative construction business. So the husband does cook, clean and he even wears mangalsutra. Woman earns a living. At one stage they meet Amitabh and Jaya bachchan and they hear their story. At one stage they go to Dubai and there a pregnancy test goes wrong and we have stereotypical cliches. The first half moves with comedy and it speaks on the unconventional marriage. Second half is more of melodrama between working wife and house husband.

Star Performance

Both Kareena Kapoor and Arjun are proven actors and they don't have anything to prove once again. However in this movie, both were so cool as if they are just playing warm up matches. The movie is similar to lines of Before Sunset, Before Sunrise and Before Midnight trilogy. Balki tries to establish a man child and no flaws are with arjun. But still he has a long way to go. Kareena has done a flawless job. She is bold and beautiful. The rest of the cast are just fillers. We have Rajit Kapoor, Swaroop Sampat  in supporting roles.

Techinical Team

Technical wise also this movie is so weak. Ilayaraja who scored a National award with his 1000th movie has given a pretty average album. Chandan Arora's editing is flawless. But still the 126 minutes running time seems like a lengthy one as there are more melodrama. Balki has failed with the screenplay department. During an interview he confessed that he wrote the script long back. That's obvious as most of the scenes are just a rehash of old Hindi movies.


Seriously we don't know what was Balki thinking. During one of the scene where Kapoor hosts a lunch for other housewives in neighbourhood, it was just taking things too far. Kareena's character was also disappointing. Lots of negative shades attached to her character. Her character was just a spoilt child who needs to have some counselling. Both Kareena and Arjun are a treat to watch. But they deserve a much better script. Cameo roles from Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan is fun to watch. But they don't have the power to elevate the movie.
