July 20, 2010

Director Priyadarshan and actor Akshay Kumar as a pair are back for the sixth time in film Khatta Meetha with its release on Friday. The pair has given major hits films like Hera Pheri, Garam Masala and Bhool Bhulaiyaa.

Khatta Meetha looks into the corruption prevailing in our society and takes a dig at it. Previous films from the pair were slapstick comedies.

Akshay while discussing the film said, “Our country is said to be a growing superpower with the fastest growing economy, but we still do not have good roads because of corruption in our system. This film is a message to people involved in the system…,” The film is produced by Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltd and distributed by Dream World Searchlight Pictures. The film is a remake of 1988 Malayalam film Vellanakalude Naadu. The film also will launch southern actress Trisha in Bollywood industry.

Other stars of the film include Makrand Deshpande, Johnny Lever, Rajpal Yadav, Aroona Irani and Milind Gunaji. The film portrays Akshay Kumar in the character of cartoonist R.K. Lakshman’s iconic Common Man cartoon character. Hope that film too clicks well with the audiences as it raises a contemporary topic of corruption that is eating away the society.
