However the irony of that is, the movie turns out to be neither serious nor funny! Barring a few comic scenes, the movie can be easily passed off as utterly boring.

Khatta Meetha is better than some of Akshay's previous films like De Dana Dan and Kambakht Ishq but if what you expect is an out-an-out comic entertainer you'll be disappointed.
Ashok Nayak, Now Running
After the innovative 'Tere Bin Laden' by a newbie, here comes the promised one by the proud committee members of Bollywood laughter's, the reliable Priyadarshan and the dependable superstar Akshay who recently made the theatres go 'Housefull' but alas, this contract of Bollywood laughter by the duo who tickled our funny bones with 'Hera Pheri', 'Bhool Bhulaiya' etc comes with a low tar construction on the Bollywood entertainment road that hovers around mediocrity where Akshay and a couple of gags are the only lasting impression making the viewer feel that he is not been funningly absorbed enough.

Unfortunately, Khatta Meetha is noise (the actors scream a lot in this movie), more noise (the great promotion) and only noise, while the content takes a complete backseat. Although Khatta Meetha shouldn''t be compared to this combo''s earlier works, sinc
