Big Friday Release: Top reasons to watch ‘Katti Batti’ today

Imran Khan and Kangana Ranaut starrer romantic comedy releases in theatres on September 18. The film directed by Nikhil Advani has already garnered a lot of attention for its unique title. The film is said to be an ‘anti-love story’ and unlike other Bollywood movies of the genre. Here are top reasons to watch the movie.

Kangana Ranaut

Kangana has been appreciated by critics and audience alike for her performances in her previous romantic comedies ‘Queen’ and ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ which went on to be blockbusters. The National Award winning actress has proved that she is able carry off a movie solely on her shoulders. And hopefully she will storm ‘Katti Batti’ with her presence. 

Imran Khan

Imran with his simplicity and boyish charm is returning after a gap of two years. The lover-boy of ‘Jane Tu...Ya Jane Na’ made audience fall in love with him. However, his last few releases did not do well at the box office. Hopefully, ‘Katti Batti’ will give a positive turn to his career.

Fresh on-screen pair

Audience love to see on-screen pairs who have worked together more than once as they get more comfortable with each other. But fresh pairing also works wonder and in this case the crackling chemistry between Imran and Kangana is quite evident from the promos and songs of the movie.


The music for ‘Katti Batti’ has been composed by the talented trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. The music album of the film has a great mix of foot-tapping, melancholic and romantic tracks. Especially the song ‘Lip to lip’ by Nikhil D’Souza and Ritu Pathak is quite interesting to watch. The makers have probably for the first time in Bollywood used stop-motion technique to picturize the song.


Kangana plays an extrovert girl Payel while Imran plays a geeky architect who are in love and share a live-in relationship. But the film’s trailer tells that ‘Katti Batti’ is “not a love story.”  In an interview, Kangana had also said the movie unfolds like a thriller. So watch it and find out what the film is all about. And when an actor like Aamir Khan vouches for a movie, it is definitely worth a watch.

Above all superstar Salman Khan also makes an appearance in the film.
