Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi
Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi is a 2001 Indian film directed by Rahul Rawail and starring Kajol in a double role as two estranged identical twins. The storyline follows the general theme of its 1961 Hollywood counterpart The Parent Trap, which is based on the 1949 novel Lottie and Lisa, but with the added melodrama and slight-changed storyline of a Bollywood movie. The film also stars Sunil Shetty, Rishi Kapoor, Rati Agnihotri and Pooja Batra. This is the second time that Kajol played a dual role after Dushman. The rights to this film are owned by Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment.
Raj Khanna (Rishi Kapoor) is a wealthy businessman who lives with his wife Archana (Rati Agnihotri), stepsister Devyani (Mita Vasisht), her spouse (Pramod Moutho), and her son Teddy (Mayur), in a mansion. Raj and Archana's lives are marred by marital discord, until they separate. Shortly before separating, Archana gives birth to identical twins: one of these is taken by Devyani and handed to Raj without Archana's knowledge, telling him that Archana's other daughter died during childbirth, and she doesn't want anything to do with the second daughter. This infant becomes an embittered young woman sentimentally named Sweety (Kajol), and Raj becomes a helpless alcoholic. Archana has moved to London with the other daughter, Tina (also Kajol). In contrast to Sweety's ferocity, Tina is meek, compassionate, sympathetic, and demure. Each year, Archana buys two identical presents, gives one to Tina on her birthday, and locks the other into a closet to symbolize giving to Sweety, whom she believes is dead.
