Preview: Khatta Meetha
Genre: Comedy
Director: Priyadarshan
Cast: Akshay Kumar, Trisha Krishnan, Makrand Deshpande, Rajpal Yadav, Neeraj Vora, Milind Gunaji, Asrani

Synopsis: This is a remake of the 1989 Malayalam film, Vellanakalude Nadu, by Priyadarshan. Struggling road construction contractor Sachin Tichkule (played by Akshay Kumar) loves to dream big. But there is no chance of his dreams ever coming true, simply because he has no money to bribe people with.

To make matters worse, the new municipal commissioner turns out to be his ex-girlfriend (played by Trisha Krishnan), who now hates him.

As Sachin bumbles his way from one disaster to another, leaving the audience in splits, the film reveals in a light-hearted way the extent of corruption and bribery rampant in the system, and the ingenious means you have to adopt if you want to survive.

Synopsis: As a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt (Angelina Jolie) swore an oath to duty, honour and country. Her loyalty will be tested when a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy.

Salt’s efforts to prove her innocence only serve to cast doubt on her motives, as the hunt to uncover the truth behind her identity continues and the question remains: “Who is Salt?”
