Struggling road construction contractor, Sachin Tichkule (Akshay Kumar) is doomed to dream big.

To make matters worse, the new municipal commissioner turns out to be his ex girlfriend (Trisha) who now hates him. Even as you laugh as Sachin bumbles his way from one disaster to another, the film reveals in a light hearted way, the extent of corruption and bribery rampant in the system. And the ingenious means you have to adopt if you want to survive. Enjoy the bumpy ride!

What’s worse than a Priyadarshan comedy that i sn’t funny? A Priyadarshan drama with no focus, that’s what.

The New Indian Express

This is cinema at its most tasteless

The story with its baggage of generic turns and contrived twists seems all too familiar in making its even-now significant point

The jokes, you can tell, have pretty much dried up. No amount of slapstick will wet this pool

Hindustan Times

Ample doses of over-the-top buffoonery and liberal sprinkling of double entendre. One of the most cringe-worthy films from Priyadarshan

It is criminally long, burdened with flat comedy tracks as faulty as Sachin Tichkule’s roads

Indian Express

No matter how loud you shout and how high you keep the volume of the background score, you cannot drown the fact that this is a Bullshit movie

The Telegraph

This Priyadarshan film gets loud and repetitive. Akshay Kumar’s role shows promise, but ends up annoying

Khatta Meetha lacks wit and sarcasm and by no means can be termed as a political satire

IndiaTimes

At over two hours, it is silly, noisy, and repetitive. It's also weirdly misogynistic

India Today

Tune off a bit for the tedious middle and you could be in for some fun and frolic in Khatta Meetha

Times of India

It's not a full-blown comedy. It's not a full-scale satire either. Hugely disappointing!
