I am surprised with the kind of movies that are coming from Bollywood and Lollywood these days. Ki and Ka is one such film that belongs to genre of light rom com movies.
This film is about what happens, when a man (Kabir) who wants to be a house husband and a workaholic career obsessed woman (Kia) gets into a relationship. Script is very well written and doesnt drag at all ( usually what happens to such movies).The whole film is about the evolution of the unique setup that Kabir and Kia are into and how it gets to the point, that director wants to prove throughout the movie. What that point is, I will leave it to you to figure out.
If you reverse the roles of Kabir and Kia, this movie will become ordinary and feels repetitive. for example: In movies we have seen many times ,a housewife trying to find another source of income with in her means to support her husband but for the very first time you will see a husband do the same in a film and that makes this movie entertaining.
Direction is good and I really liked the rhythm/flow of the movie. Arjun Kapoor is very convincing in his role as a house husband, but Kareena has exceeded expectations definitely one of the best performances of her career. Mom of Kia and Father of Kabir have done exactly what was required from them. Plus there is a surprise element in the movie, one of my all time favorite couple makes a cameo.
Production quality up to the standards as expected and I simply loved the train station inspired apartment.
Music is ok , could have been better. I like the placements of the song though. High heels is definitely a chartbuster.
I could totally relate to the move and that made it even more entertaining. Its a must watch for couples in their 20s and 30s. This movie is definitely going to be in list of my all time favorite home movies next to English Vinglish.
