Khatta Meetha Reviews:

Khatta Meetha is one of those films that you simply enjoy. It is not a film that has to be understood or deeply ruminated about. It is one of those films which were a part of the uncomplicated films made in the 70s in India.The film has its share of emotions and comedy. They mix with every another and do not open an attack on your sensibilities, cinematic or otherwise.Some of the greatest comic work, I have ever seen, especially from Preeti Ganguly, the true life daughter of Ashok Kumar. Her fantasy sequences of getting married with Amitabh Bachhan (dressed as a Parsee, no less) are to be seen to be believed! Other stage worth remembering is her "Kheer" sequence with Master Raju.There is a typical rich-girl-poor-boy track that runs parallel to the main movie, and a lesser director would have taken the film in a tangent, but it is so well woven in the main track, that it now complements the entire effort.The song "Thoda Hain Thode Ki Zaroorat Hai" (We have tiny and we need tiny else..) is beautiful, probably in the top 10 works of Kishoreda. The game track is good. One song, "Mummy..O..Mummy" is hilarious. Others are forgettable.


You can simply tell its just other flick with humor and it now suggests you to do so but you cant rate it as an average film. why? because of its simplicity it touches you. There are no melodramatic scenes characters are near to reality one can connect with the theme and watching Late Mr. Ashok Kumar is a treat. Mr Deven Verna's performance attracts.His song Mummi O Mummi tu kab saas banegi is very good. other song from Thoda hai Thode ki zaroorat hai by Late Mr Kishor Kumar is nice to listen. Movie is based on Indian Parsi families and shows there life style in brief. Rakesh Roshan and Bindiya Goswami is OK. I gave 8 ranking for it. If you are interested in light comedy it is for you Go & Watch!!


Khatta Meetha (sour sweet) is the tale that lays out the sweetness of love in life that enables the human-beings to endure the unavoidable sourness of experiences. Being a take on the Hollywood film - Yours, Mine and Ours (1968), the storyline takes shape with the marriage of two lonely senior citizens - Homi Mistry (Ashok Kumar) and Nargis Sethna (Pearl Padamsee). Since both of them are having grown up children, their union in life effects in their families too joining to create an extended family. Their kids are not satisfied with the marriage of their (respective) father and mother. Quarrels take zone between them with the parents (half biological and half legal) trying to patch up the things and hold the family united. Nargis' son Feroze (Rakesh Roshan) falls in love with Zarine (Bindiya Goswami) who is the daughter of an egoist businessman (Pradeep Kumar) who is mentally not prepared to let his daughter to marry an ordinary youth and become daughter-in-law of an ordinary middle-class family. He takes steps to harass the family so that the family itself doesn't agree Zarine. However in the end, he himself has to bow before the strength of love within the family and conviction of its head - Homi Mistry that nothing can become a wall in the path of the happiness of his family.Khatta Meetha is a signature film of Basu Da. Every and each frame of the film and every and each hero of the storyline seems familiar to the typical Indian spectator who comes from the salaried middle class living a normal life but dreams big. I have a nice regard for the Paarsi community who despite being a minority community in India, has never begged for any privileges and instead contributed immensely for the growth of the country. It's a community which has everytime taken interest in giving something to the society and the nation instead of demanding. Regretfully (and unjustifiably), the Bollywood filmmakers have mocked this community in the Hindi movies. Khatta Meetha is a welcome change from this defective Bollywood tradition. It has shown the Paarsi characters of the film like normal flesh and blood human-beings like the another communities and presented an authentic acc of their life. Basu Da did the same thing soon for the Christian community also in Baaton Baaton Mein (1979).Khatta Meetha can be considered a comedy because it tickles and entertains. However it is not a slapstick comedy and creates natural laughs and smiles in the audience. The comedy of the film is not forced on the spectators, it is felt by them. And the sentiments embedded in the storyline are also felt by them in equal manner because there is nothing that can be considered as over the top. The viewer feels his heart beating for the members of the extended family and his eyes getting humid over their sufferings. The viewer laughs with them and weeps for them.Finally, it's a nice film because it propagates the ages old Indian philosophy of non-accumulation and echoes Mahatma Gandhi's watchword of easy living and high thinking through the presentation of the storyline and the immortal song of Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar - Thoda Hai, Thode Ki Zaroorat Hai, Zindagi Phir Bhi Yahaan Khoobsurat Hai (we have tiny and we need little, nevertheless the life is pretty here). A nice lesson for all and sundry.All the performers in the film have done well including Ranjeet Chaudhary, Ravi Raj, Devendra Khandelwal, Vimal Sahu, Preeti Ganguly, Master Raju, Pradeep Kumar, Deven Varma, Piloo Waadia, David, Keshto Mukherjee, Bindiya Goswami etc. Today's superstar Hrithik Roshan's father - Rakesh Roshan should not become a large character in his time but he was successful in carving a niche for him as well as creating his fan-following through such simple, weak budget and heart-winning movies. However the performer who stand tallest are Ashok Kumar and Pearl Padamsee being the senior citizen couple. Dada Muni (Ashok Kumar) has delivered a mesmerizing performance and Pearl Padamsee has rubbed shoulders with him step by step. It's a treat to watch the performance of these stalwart artists on the screen.Rakesh Roshan's younger brother - Rajesh Roshan has composed unforgettable gems for this movie. Another than the immortal - Thoda Hai, Thode Ki Zaroorat Hai, the melody of the film include other gem - Yeh Jeena Hai Angoor Ka Daana (the game track in the voices of Kishore Kumar and Usha Mangeshkar). There are hilarious songs viz. Mummy O Mummy, Tu Kab Saas Banegi; Roll Roll and Frenny O Frenny in the movie. However it includes a song which has made a permanent zone in my heart. It is Kishore-Lata duet - Tumse Mila Tha Pyar Kuchh Achchhe Naseeb Se, Hum Unn Dino Ameer The Jab Tum Kareeb The.Technically, the film is excellent because it portrays the milieu that it purports to portray. Art director and cinematographer have done an outstanding job in creating a middle class environment on the screen. Editor has also done his cute well and there is not even an ounce of boredom in the movie.My final words, the nice message delivered by this highly entertaining and inspiring classic is - do trust in the strength of love, hold the love within the family intact and strengthen it. Love is the panacea for all the ills, the master-key for all the locks and the solution to all the issues of life. In this era of nuclear families, Khatta Meetha shows how the members of an extended family can adjust with one another, even out mutual differences and join hands to stand up to any external threat which is common to the family as a whole. The analogy of family can be used for the entire nation too. In a country like India where a general license seems to have been issued to hate others, this film teaches to love and trust in the power of love.
