Khichdi 2 review
Bollywood Bubble gave Khichdi 2 ‘2.5 out of 5 stars. A part of the review read, “Supriya Pathak starrer is a senseless comedy that will make you laugh in bits and parts. Moreover, the movie could have been better and enjoyed on television rather than on the big screen. The movie maintains its charm and nostalgia elements but logic and some jokes take a serious hit.”
The comic-caper is written and directed by Aatish Kapadia and produced by Jamnadas Majethia (JD).
