Katti Batti is the story of Maddy (Imran Khan) who loves Payal (Kangana Ranaut). They have a live-in relationship for 5 years until a sudden turn of events lead to Payal leaving Maddy. Why Payal left and whether the two lovers will unite forms the crux of the story.
It’s hard to understand the drift of the movie. It is so removed from reality that even Nikhil Advani’s previous release, which is in no way a standard for entertaining watch, appears to be well made. Story is patched together from foreign movies and Bollywood clichés. Screenplay is a drag
Katti Batti has garnered mostly negative reviews. Rohit Vats of HindustanTimes gives the movie 1.5/5.
“Katti Batti fares badly in almost every department and the writing is the worst hit. The characters are shoddily written and it’s difficult to feel for any of the lead actors. The actors look clueless in absence of a coherent story”.
Troy Ribeiro states, “On the face of it, Katti Batti is supposed to be a romantic comedy involving a die-hard romantic and a commitment-phobic girl, at least that’s what the trailers promised. But what you get is a potpourri of emotional trajectories offered in a non-linear, confusing and obscure manner”.
Sukanya Verma of rediff states, “Even a radiant Kangana cannot rescue Katti Batti” while Raja Sen on the same website opines-“Katti Batti is an imbecilic, cliche-ridden embarrassment that made me want to punch it in the mouth”
Imran Khan needs to choose his scripts wisely if he needs to survive in the industry. Kangana Ranaut needs to get out of her crazy girl act. She needs to choose intelligently if she wants to grow further in her position. Looks like director Nikhil Advani had too much on his plate with both Hero and Katti Batti on the floors together. He hasn’t done justice to either of the two films.
