The much-awaited Imran Khan - Kangana Ranaut film opens in theatres tomorrow
Imran Khan and Kangana Ranaut have been paired up for the first time ever in Nikhil Advani's Katti Batti. The promos of the film looked seriously promising and we are given to understand that the film is an emotional roller-coaster. Our reviewer Sreeju Sudhakaran is currently at the special screening of the movie and here are his first impressions of the film, "Ah...the pain of a breakup! That terrible longing for someone with whom you shared so much, yet now she exists only in memories. Those who have gone through that pain will definitely relate to the first half of Katti Batti. That said, its not a dark narrative. There are several light moments interspersed in the tale. The story is of Maddy (Imran Khan) and Payal (Kangana Ranaut), who are college sweethearts turned ex-lovers. The film follows a nonlinear pattern, with the actual track following Maddy's traumatic journey following their breakup. Then there are flashback portions which consist of their college life and their live-in relationship.
There are several breezy moments in their life, some touching ones as well, for instance how Maddy is dealing with the breakup and how he wants to reconnect with Payal desperately, despite his best friend telling him otherwise. Imran Khan is back in form, as he makes for a believable lead, someone whom you can empathise with. Kangana Ranaut is spunky and cute, but since the first half revolved around Imran Khan, I am sure there is more of her in the second half. The Sarfira song is foot- tapping. If I felt there is anything awkward about the film, it is the caricaturisation of certain supporting characters and a couple of long drawn scenes. The film reaches interval point when Maddy decides to go to Delhi to get Payal back. Will she accept him? And why exactly did she break up with him? Well, watch this space for more updates..."
