Kangana Ranaut and Imran Khan starrer "Katti Batti" has received mixed reviews from critics. The film directed by Nikhil Advani is a love story and features Kangana and Imran in the lead roles.
While a BollywoodLife.com critic said that Kangana and Imran's chemistry makes an interesting first part, an Emirates 24/7 critic said that it's a mashup of Hollywood and Bollywood films.
Read the reviews below:
Lokesh Dharmani of Masala.com said: "The trailer says it's NOT a love story. The film is promoted with an interesting, twisted end. Err NOT! There is nothing new about the ending of the film. The only good thing about the ending was...that it ended."
Srishti Dixit of BollywoodLife.com said: "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."
Sneha May Francis of Emirates 24/7 said: "At the beginning of the movie, there's an impromptu drama that unfolds on stage to showcase the legendary Devdas' deeply passionate romance to an older couple. But the young actors struggle to tie-in romance and humour, almost hinting the fate of 'Katti Batti'."
Deepanjana Pal of Firstpost said: "Ironically, in reality, as far as Katti Batti is concerned, it's Khan who is Ranaut's accessory. Wait till Monday to find out if Ranaut's charm and popularity can achieve the impossible and make up for Advani's disappointing filmmaking and unremarkable hero."
Surabhi Redkar of Koimoi.com said: "Nope! Bollywood lacks the nerve to come up with believable romantic dramas. Fairytales are fine with us but a mixture partial reality is harmful. Katti Batti is a a port wine presented as Chardonnay. Don't waste your weekend on this!"
Shubha Shetty Saha of Mid-Day said: "Imran Khan is sincere. Kangana has by now proved that she's a brilliant actress, but here she seems to be faltering a bit as if she is desperately looking for a firm footing in terms of a convincing character."
