Well! Kareena seems to have broken the no-kissing policy onscreen that she had committed to her actor husband Saif Ali Khan after tying the knot in 2012.
Arjun Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor have shot intimate kissing scenes in their upcoming movie ‘Ki and Ka’.
According to the reports, Kareena said that she likes Arjun as a person and he is a fantastic kisser.
In R Balki’s world, if you’re a woman battling an unwanted-pregnancy scare, the solution is a UPT (Urine Pregnancy Test) kit. Once you’ve taken one strip test and found the result positive, the next step is to be absolutely sure about it. So, instead of going to the gynaecologist like, well, normal women would probably do, Balki’s heroine is coaxed by her husband into taking five more strip tests. ‘Just to be sure’ of the results. After four negatives to two positives, you’d think maybe, logically, the woman would now want to go to the gynae. But who cares about such things any way! So once certainty is established, the next step is going right back to making out.
That – making out – is the single solution to most problems in this gender role-reversal drama called Ki And Ka.
Kia (Kareena Kapoor Khan), an ’85-born career-driven single woman meets Kabir (Arjun Kapoor), an ’88-born son-of-an-industrialist guy on a flight from Chandigarh to Delhi. Kabir doesn’t want his dad’s business or money, and his only aim in his life is to be like his mother: an ‘artist’, i.e., a housewife.
Suitably shocked, Kia keeps meeting Kabir to figure out exactly why he wants to be his mom. And on his part, Kabir keeps regaling Kia with his gender equality philosophies. In a few meetings, Kabir proposes marriage to Kia. Kabir’s father (Rajit Kapur) is against his son’s decision of being a ‘ghar-jamai’, while Kia’s mother (Swaroop Sampat) accepts the couple gladly into her house. A registry marriage and Kia tying the mangalsutra on Kabir’s neck later, we’re taken to Ki and Ka’s happily-married life.
Ki And Ka, right from the time the trailer was released, looked interesting. However, Balki’s treatment of the subject reduces the entire concept to a farce. The film tries so hard to be what it is not that it loses way badly. The writing is not a field which Ki And Ka excels in. The film, for most part, feels like a rehearsal of sorts. Both Arjun and Kareena look like they are mouthing sharp, one-tone dialogues to impress the conductor of this out-of-tune opera that is Ki And Ka. The ping-pong dialogue-delivery between Arjun and Kareena is a major dampener.
Arjun Kapoor’s acting is lazy in parts and too forced in others. Kareena’s performance feels like it is a performance. The effortlessness isn’t visible in Kareena’s Kia. Every bit of both the lead actors’ screen-time is an exercise in watching two disinterested-in-the-film people in front of you. There’s nothing much to talk about their dull chemistry either.
In her supporting role, Swaroop Sampat is quite the open-minded, progressive mother. Rajit Kapur is wasted in the film. Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan, in their cameos, are fabulous. The scene with the Bachchans is among the best parts of the film (and there aren’t many).
