Kuch Khattaa Ho Jaay Review


Heer and Iraa are in love, and to escape familial pressure, they decide to tie the knot, with Heer pledging to support Iraa`s aspirations to become an IAS. However, a misunderstanding leads both families to believe that they are expecting a child.

Highlights of the movie

Fashion: The movie shows some trendy outfits that are sure to kill for. Saiee is seen wearing some fashionable indo-western outfits; the chikankari and Lucknowi kurta sets are beautiful. You surely want to have them in your wardrobe. On the other hand, Guru also showcases his killer fashion side with quirky shirts and tshirts.

Drawbacks of the movie

Screenplay: The script is written amateurishly which has no head or tail. There’s no message neither it has an impactful storyline. Kuch Khatta Ho Jaay is only about a grandpa who craves for a grandchild. However, in course, the story takes a serious hit on logic and facts. For instance, if Ira feels like having a imlie ka achar and people directly think about pregnancy. This itself shows what story lacks. A story that takes you backwards as it is quite regressive in nature. Adoption and surrogacy are shown as the sins in the society and really makes you question all this.

Performance: The performances by the leads as well as the supporting cast have not done any justice to their characters. The characters are poorly written and they have poorly acted. Even veterans like Anupam Kher, Ila Arun, Atul Srivastava couldn’t save this movie. Everyone in the movie gave an unsatisfactory performance and that is quite a let down.

Songs: Ishaare Tere Kangne is the only song that compels you to groove; however, the other songs have no potential to entice. Moreover, some songs randomly playing in between scenes are quite bizarre and even bothersome.

Execution: All the scenes seemed like they are rehearing it. Everything seemed so dull and unenergetic that it feels since school skit is playing. It didn’t seem like a movie but some drama is playing at a drama school.

Star performances

Guru Randhawa makes his Bollywood debut in Kuch Khatta Ho Jaay and it’s quite underwhelming. Kudos to him for attempting to act but it’s not upto the mark. His dialogue delievery looks rehearsed and forced. If singing comes naturally to him, acting is quite the opposite.

Saiee Manjrekar who plays Iraa in the movie is unimpressive. Her emotions look quite dead onscreen. You can’t make out if she is happy or sad as her emotions and expressions are monotonous and goes at same wavelength.

Other supporting cast also deliver an underwhelming performance. In most of the scenes, it seems they are overdoing it and they need to calm down.


Concluding the review, Kuch Khatta Ho Jaay offers no story no entertainment. It’s a movie that will make you question ‘why was this made in the first place?’ KKHJ has no point of the story and it can easily be avoided.
