It’s not a man’s reality, not any longer. At any rate this is the thing that R Balki’s Ki and Ka tries to set up: In this world, ladies carry on like men, and men are as of now men. So it’s essentially a story of two men blaming each other for being a man.
Arjun Kapoor is playing a North Indian, once more. Kabir needs to be similar to his mom since he thinks being a housewife is absolutely being a craftsman. One day, he meets a rising corporate star, Kia (Kareena Kapoor Khan), and tries urgently to charm her. In any case, it’s an overwhelming assignment for one straightforward reason: Kia is uncommonly eager and doesn’t need the marriage to thwart her flight before coming to the top.
You get to be incredulous around a film that promoters gender balance at any expense and opens with a Honey Singh tune, yet soon you understand R Balki’s respectable expectations. He has set his film in Delhi, a model of how ‘not to treat ladies’ in Bollywood’s eyes.But, the genuine story starts once the group of onlookers is finished with the substantial measurement of Kabir’s “coolness” and Kia’s ‘colorfulness’.
It’s a part inversion for Ki and Ka on the grounds that one and only of them can be the ‘man of the relationship’. Kabir doesn’t have any aspirations to end up a ‘corporate robot’ and Kia is all that much dependent on ‘social spotlight’ and procuring truckloads of money. You might get aggravated by an IIM-B topper playing a complacent ‘house-spouse’, however not Delhi’s lovable close relative jees, so the wrinkles take some an opportunity to surface, yet once it happens, everything gets to be crystal clear. Here we find interestingly that the force equation of a relationship can destroy it until the end of time.
The film presents a thought that it’s an individual’s decision to wind up a househusband or a housewife, however it never discusses financial freedom and what impact it will have on age-old gender parts in the relationship.That’s only one piece of it however.
Ki and Ka is truly about turning the tables. We really see people in eateries coming to Kareena and Arjun individually with photograph requests at two unique junctures in the film. What’s more, before you say Abhimaan, let me let you know that Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan likewise feature in the film, yet those are the best snippets of this film.
An excessive amount of breakfast and coffee table drama make this well meaning film lose steam. Ki and Ka isn’t a solid voice against gender stereotyping, yet it’s one of its kind in standard Hindi film industry, and that makes it notice-commendable.
