Ki & Ka - Movie Reviews

He throws in a sequence in which the hero bashes up three goons who make crude passes at his wife. Kia instantly applauds her hubby's "Dharmendra wala side".
In this film the Ka -- as in the Ka-poors, who act in the film -- are okay, it is the Ki -- as in Bal-Ki, who directs it -- who stumbles rather badly
REDIFF
R Balki comes up with the most unique ideas, infuses them with a whimsical energy but in his eagerness to impress, he loses all subtlety
REDIFF
There are a lot of surprises in store in this gem of a film
Sify
So on an overall basis, ‘Ki & Ka’ is a unique perspective of role reversal from the eyes of R.Balki. It has plenty of good moments to cherish along with some fine performances
Cine Markets
A good idea gone bad is a common fact in Hindi cinema, but since we're on the subject of ideas, here's one
Filmfare
It feels longer than its two hours running time, and you won’t be able to shake off the feeling that it delivers very little in the end
Rajeev Masand
Balk muddles his modern-day romance into something superficially daft and inaccurate

There are a lot of surprises in store in this gem of a film
Sify
What doesn't work for the film is the constant onslaught of in-film marketing
She in turn accuses him of being a “corporate psychopath” who is against all those making a career for themselves
A liberal, fun concept helmed by Kareena, Arjun but spoilt by mixed messages
First Post
One trick pony, too thrilled with itself for offering us a concept that a man would be happy to be house-husband while the woman of the house earned a living

KI & KA is a cleverly crafted feel-good film that packs all the emotions

Well, watch out for Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan’s delightful cameo in Ki And Ka… and a few lighthearted scenes.
The Statesman
The music of 'Ki & Ka', goes well with the happy and celebratory set up of the film
Bollywood Hungama
The performances are delivered on the screens in a professional manner.
Ind Read
'Ki & Ka', wants to be important, it wants to be revolutionary, it wants to be a feminist statement of equality
Sen City
Ki And Ka is a brave attempt to bring in the issue of a gender role reversal but the story fails to keep you engaged.

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Arjun Kapoor’s film is ABHIMAAN in a kitchen!
Bollywood Life
KI & KA fails to capitalize on an interesting plot!
Glam Sham
The film is strictly for those who are looking for romance, entertainment and a quirky take on role reversal of a husband and wife. It is all about ‘home-maker’.
News Nation
‘Ki & Ka’ Is A Painfully Absurd Social Lecture That’s Best Avoided
Mens XP
The soundtrack for 'Ki and Ka', like the film, is quirky and interesting
Bollywood Life
‘Ki & Ka’ is filled with product plugs but the battle of the sexes is harder to sell

क्लासिक फिल्म 'अभिमान' की याद दिलाती है 'की एंड का'
Aaj Tak
It’s not a man’s world, not anymore. At least this is what R Balki’s Ki & Ka tries to establish: In this world, women behave like men, and men are already men.
Bollywood.Com
But with so much lacking, there is nothing about this movie that will pull you to the theater. Of course, unless you’re a Kareena or Arjun fan. Sad that it’s releasing on April 1st because it could be the butt of some jokes.

For the most part the film does a decent job on portraying how it is

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Arjun Kapoor starrer based on gender equality is not up to the mark

'Ki & Ka', are perfectly blended, when taken gives you a sweet kick leaving you smiling
Cinema Glitz
The audio of 'KI & KA', fulfils expectations and is loaded with quite a few chartbusters and songs that have the capacity to stay for a while

A corporate robot’s love for too much drama
Hindustan Times
Open an account in their names, let them have their credit card and financial independence and mean gender equality and make the required difference.
Masala
'Ki & Ka', is an unimpressive album, especially for a film that claims to challenge gender stereotypes
Indian Express
The film’s messages on gender equality and stereotypes attached to men and women are lost in translation
Yet, the film comes with a unique combination of peppy songs and the message on gender bias. Overall, Ki and Ka ends up as a decent onetime watch for the family audience this weekend
Sulekha

Filmi Beat
The film may not stand up to its concept but it is not that dull or boring.

Mediocre writing and chaotic direction derails this Arjun Kapoor- Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer!

Even though Ki & Ka makes a revolutionary Statement, it falls behind with a lot of clich©d scenes , and scenes made for sponsors of the film
Tharai Ticketu
Yet, Ki and Ka is worth a ticket because it tells shows how there is nothing wrong with the man wearing the apron and the women wearing her ambition.

Director Balki goes multi-composer for the first time, but the best track still comes from Ilayaraja

Arjun and Kareena at their best with completely fresh concept
The Reporter Times
Overall, “Ki & Ka” will appeal to the urban audience and is worth a watch for Arjun Kapoor’s honest performance.
