Khatta Meetha

Khatta Meetha is a 1978 Hindi movie directed by Basu Chatterjee. The film stars Ashok Kumar, Rakesh Roshan, Bindiya Goswami, Pearl Padamsee, David, Preeti Ganguly, Deven Verma, Pradeep Kumar and Iftekhar. The films music is by Rajesh Roshan. Khatta Meetha is one of those movies that you simply enjoy. It is not a movie that has to be understood or deeply ruminated about. It is one of those movies which were a part of the uncomplicated movies made in the 70s in India. The movie has its share of emotions and comedy. They mix with each other and do not launch an attack on your sensibilities, cinematic or otherwise. Some of the best comic work, I have ever seen, especially from Preeti Ganguly, the real life daughter of Ashok Kumar. Her fantasy sequences of getting married with Amitabh Bachhan (dressed as a Parsee, no less) are to be seen to be believed! Another scene worth remembering is her "Kheer" sequence with Master Raju. There is a typical rich-girl-poor-boy track that runs parallel to the main movie, and a lesser director would have taken the movie in a tangent, but it is so well woven in the main track, that it actually complements the whole effort. The song "Thoda Hain Thode Ki Zaroorat Hai" (We have little and we need little else..) is beautiful, probably in the top 10 works of Kishoreda. The title track is good. One song, "Mummy..O..Mummy" is hilarious. Others are forgettable
