'Ki and Ka' tweet review: Uses cliches to elicit chuckles, but fails
Will 'Ki and Ka' be able to drive across a much-needed social message of role reversal to its full potential? Will Arjun-Kareena's sizzling on-screen chemistry win plaudits? Kriti Tulsiani from IBNLive is inside the theater to find out.

Directed by R Balki, 'Ki and Ka' featuring Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor in lead roles hits the theater today. Touted to be a movie that breaks gender stereotypes, the film follows a young, married couple challenging the gender roles placed upon men and women in our society.

From the very first look, it managed to garner quite a favorable response. Be it for its exquisite pairing with Arjun-Kareena sharing screen space for the first time or the subject of role reversal being treated in the film; everything has been intriguing enough. While the trailer definitely has an off-beat theme and an interesting message to it, it still remains to be seen whether the film does justice to the chosen topic.

Considering the fact that director R Balki has previously given us some amazing unconventional films like 'English Vinglish', 'Cheeni Kum' and 'Paa' , it'll be interesting to see what's in store for the viewers this time.

9:33 AM - #KiandKa tweet review to start in a bit. Stay tuned.

9:41 AM - Directed by #RBalki, #KiandKa features #KareenaKapoor, @arjunk26 in lead roles.

9:50 AM - Touted as a movie to break gender-based stereotypes in our society, will #KiandKa set a new benchmark? Stay tuned to find out.

9:54 AM - #KiandKa gets you grooving with the super-energetic track #HighHeels in the opening scene.

9:58 AM - It's time for some role-reversal. #KareenaKapoor's opening act as #Kia sets the priorities right. #KiandKa

10:00 AM - I want my maa: @arjunk26's crying scene will make you go aww. #KiandKa

10:06 AM - While #KareenaKapoor is suave as an ambitious marketing professional, @arjunk26 is adorable as a go-ahead housemaker. #KiandKa

10:14 AM - Corporate slave or corporate psycho-path? #KiandKa's exploration of extremes is engaging. (So far 😝)

10:20 AM - #KiandKa doesn't take much time to build up its basic plot. Should have.

10:25 AM - Aurat aadmi ki zimedaari hoti hai: No bro, no. In a society where gender-based stereotypes dominate, #KiandKa's message is refreshing.

10:26 AM - #ArjunKapoor wearing a mangal-sutra. A bit too much, maybe? Yes. #KiandKa

10:35 AM - #KiAndKa There's a love making scene that will leave you in splits. Hint: It's not the one with @arjunk26-#KareenaKapoor.

10:38 AM - #ArjunKapoor's fascination with trains was catchy at first. Not anymore. #KiAndKa

10:44 AM - Looks like #KiAndKa has left no stone unturned in using clichés to elicit chuckles. Not cool.

10:48 AM - Okay. Because #ArjunKapoor's character is a home-maker, he's spending time with ladies out there. Why? #KiAndKa

10:49 AM - Home-making is the biggest art in this world. Kudos to home-makers for their selfless and never-ending efforts. #KiAndKa

10:59 AM - It's half time. #KiAndKa started off on a good pace but lost its soul pretty soon.

11:03 AM - Apart from constant efforts of proving its point, there's some humour in the first half that might help you get through this. #KiAndKa

11:11 AM - Every scene, every shot is speaking out loud "We're breaking stereotypes" and no, not in a good way. #KiAndKa

11:24 AM - #KareenaKapoor looks drop-dead gorgeous in almost every frame but cameras and lighting could have been kinder to her. #KiAndKa

11:27 AM - Who says a bearded one can't handle a household? @arjunk26 is definitely giving these ladies some serious husband goals. #KiAndKa

11:43 AM - .@SrBachchan, @JayaBachchan's cameo will bring a smile on your face. Superb! #KiAndKa

11:45 AM - @SrBachchan har Sunday dinner bana rahe hote, aur @JayaBachchan apne fans ko wave kar rahi hoti. Thought-provoking! #KiAndKa

11:48 AM - .@SrBachchan, @JayaBachchan's presence light up the screen. Probably the best scene of #KiAndKa.

11:52 AM - Second half of #KiAndKa is engaging but there's something lacking throughout the film.

11:59 AM - #SwaroopSampat is a miscast. She's likeable but her dialogue delivery is not as impressive.

12:01 PM - Looks like film makers invested so much in the role-reversal concept that they forgot what a detailed plot looks like. Unfortunate #KiAndKa

12:03 PM - Overburdened by gender-based stereotypical notions, #KiAndKa could have been so much better.

12:07 PM - #KiAndKa is entertaining in parts and that's exactly what makes this film lack at several levels. Too patchy for a film

12:10 PM - Thumbs up to #KiAndKa for the much-needed message of ripping apart the gender-based stereotypes. Thumbs up only for that.

12:10 PM - Thank you for staying with us throughout the tweet review of #KiAndKa. Stay tuned for more movie updates.
