Brace yourself for a love story with a twist, ‘Katti Batti’, a roller coaster ride of emotions and quirky momentscoming to cinemas on 18th September 2015. Released by UTV Motion Pictures, this non–linear love story marks the second release this year for the two time National Award winner Kangna Ranaut (Queen) and heartthrob Imran Khan (Ek Mein Aur Ek Tu). This film also marks Director Nikhil Advani’s return to the rom-com genre after his 2013 crime-thriller D-Day.
Produced by Siddarth Roy Kapur under the banner of UTV Motions Pictures, Katti Batti is an anti-love story with Imran Khan performing the role of Madhav Kabra (Maddy) and Kangana Ranaut as Payal. The story revolves around Maddy and Payal’s live-in relationship for 5 years until a sudden turn of events when Payal leaves Maddy mid-way.
Upon a fleeting first watch, the promo of Nikhil Advani’s upcoming “Katti Batti” seems engaging enough as the director is known to extract brilliant performances from his actors, sending his audiences on an emotional, cathartic journey. It’s a young romance that broaches the “daring” contemporary topic of pre-marital cohabiting along with giggle-worthy one-liners and dialogues that will make you chuckle.
This is an offbeat romantic film revolving around Imran Khan as Madhav Kabra (Maddy) and Kangana Ranaut as Payal. Madhav is a slightly geeky young architect that does not seem to know quite what to do when he meets the free spirited Payal who has no qualms about throwing caution to the wind.
The characters have many different depths and layers around them. Maddy comes from a very strict middle class family from Pune, while Payal comes from an affluent family in Delhi and has extremely different ideas of marriage, love and parenthood. Imran Khan’s character has extremely structured views on life until he falls in love with
Payal, who turns his life topsy turvy with her refreshing outlook on things.
With all the usual hit film elements are ticked, Kangana and Imran’s refreshingly eclectic pairing is an added bonus and is expected to steal the show – yet again with this film. Katti Batti personifies a new age relationship, breaking up and making up in the world of today, the sort of contemporary romantic relationship never seen before on Indian celluloid.
Katti Batti releases internationally on 18th September 2015 through UTV Motion Pictures.
