New Delhi: Kia is a woman. Kabir is a man! She is an ambitious marketing manager and he — a house-husband, all by choice. In R. Balki’s upcoming flick ‘Ki and Ka’, Arjun Kapoor and Kareena dismantle the stereotypical gender concepts set by the society.
The movie is a love story between a couple who are slightly different from the rest. “Main apni maa jaisa banna chahta hoon.” And just when we imagined him blurting out his mother’s career profile, Arjun adds: “She was a housewife.” He is seen preparing food, pushing bills towards the lady, asking money to run the house and even opening up shoes off Kareena’s feet, while she is fast asleep.
Kareena, on the other hand, is a marketing manager, who aspires to become CEO of the company she works in. She is driven by sex. “Bhaad mein jaaye tera head,” she dismisses the excuse made by Arjun, and climbs on top of him.
The director in this movie tries very hard to shatter the established tradition, however, ends up getting way too cheesy. When the duo get married, Arjun proudly offers his neck for Kareena to tie the mangalsutra, makes her food while she reads the newspaper and even lets her hold onto his back while dancing on sparkling red heels.
The filmmaker seems to have forgotten that in today’s world, men do prepare breakfast and women, too work in offices; and for that matter, one doesn’t have to be loud and overly-expressive. It’s just a two-and-a-half minute sneak-peak, and a lot will be revealed after the full movie.
Balki, with his movie ‘Ki and Ka’, has brought in the great Bachchan couple after a gap of 15 years. For them, and the charming acting of Arjun Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan, all the luck for movie’s release on April 1.
