  1. it surely brought some nostalgia back from the 70’s..but some of its plot resembles the modern drug war in Jamaica!

  2. Yakuza the 1st teaser of Khatta Meetha has released, how much does it need to be a hit? 45 crore?

  3. OH PLEASE…people are sick and tired of these PRIYA”copy”DARSHAN repeat mallu style comedy..this time it will back fir on them..maximum it will do a good opening thats it!

  4. priyadarshan remakes his own movie into hindi, Khatta Meetha is a remake of his own directed mallu film Vellanakalude Nadu. Also priyan has got natonal awards 3 times for his films, a great director.

  5. OH PLEASE…DONT SAY priyan remakes only his movies..most of his so called own films(mallu) are a straight copy of hollywood films and FUKI Billu,mere baap phele aap,Bhool-bhulaiya,dhol,chup chup ke,maalamal weekly,bhagam bhaag,hulchul,hera-pheri,doli saja ke rakhna,virasat are “NOT HIS OWN MOVIES AS THEY ALL ARE STRAIGHT LIFT FROM OTHER DIRECTORS WORK”..Funny part is that he even dont give credit to the original writer or director in the hindi remakes,gone are the days of ripping off some one else work now AS copyright act is bigger in INDIA TODAY!!

    PRIYADARSHAN HAS REMADE HIS malayalam FILMS INTO HINDI ARE THE FOLLOWING..SAAT RANG KE SAPNE,YEH TERA GHAR YEH MERA GHAR,HUNGAMA,GARAM MASALA,KYON KI and now KHATTA -MEETHA.

    And a fact about MAALAMAL WEEKLY STILL REMAINS A MYSTERY WHERE PRIYAcopyDARSHAN RIPPED OFF poor RICHARD HOLMES(WAKING NED) and MADE IT HIS OWN SCRIPT..didnt even compensated for copying it into hindi AS HE WAS GOING TO SUE PRIYADARSHAN FOR COPYRIGHT ACT BUT GAVE UP AS THE FILM ALREADY GOT RELEASED.

  6. priyan does not copy hollywood films, he remakes his language film into hindi mainly his own directed film, and whats crime if wanna copy his own film? are jealous or something that you want akki to fail in this in favour of floppy abhishek bachan?

    • “JAMIA-MILIYA-ISLAMIA”..IT SEEMS U DIDNT READ MY ABOVE REPLY(in which i have put the correct films that has been remade from other directors as well as Priyan’s own films which were remade in hindi)..WHICH IS A FACT ABOUT PRIYAcopyDARSHAN FROM wikipedia..hope it make some sence to you now!

  7. So have you watched those film? If priyan did not remade it in hindi, no one would of had a clue about these film.

    • THATS WHY more and more TAMIL films are remade from MALAYALAM NOWADAYS..Ajay DEvgans under production film which will be directed by Rohit shetty is another malayalam remake which is an out and out action film which was made with PRITHVIRAJ the actor in the tamil RAAVAN who is doing VIKRAM’S ROLE IN THE TAMIL VERSION.GOLMAL is a remake of a malayalam film starring Mohanlal,not everybody knows that SRK’S FIRST FILM WAS A MALYALAM REMAKE “innaley” 1989(deewana) and the same goes for Ajay devgan as his first film was a malyalam remake too (phool aur kante) of a mamooty starrer made in 1989 called “PARAMBARA”..and the list goes on!

  8. i actually thought the teaser of KM was good. i like the ‘hungama’ ‘bhool bhulaiya’ type of movies Priya makes because there’s a story there as well

    • I WONDER WHEN U SEE THE ORIGINAL VERSION OF BHOOL-BHULAIYA…U WILL THINK THAT THE HINDI REMAKE IS NOTHING INFRONT OF QUALITY AND NATURALITY!!
