The film is a remake of Priyadarshan's previous Malayalam film Vellanakalude Nadu (1988), scripted by Sreenivasan. Khatta Meetha was released on July 23, 2010. The film was produced by Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltd and Akshay Kumar.Upon release, the film received mixed to negative reviews from critics. Rajeev Masand of CNN-IBN rated the film 1 out of 5 saying, Khatta Meetha is a schizophrenic film. One benefits from the other. And Priyadarshan gets to churn out his own no-brainer remakes every other week. Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama rated the film 1.5/5 while stating, Khatta Meetha is a major letdown from the accomplished director. It's not a full-blown comedy. It's not a full-scale satire either. Hugely disappointing! Noyon Jyoti Parasara of AOL rated the film 1.5/5 and stated, In no way does 'Khatta Meetha' look like a film made by a director who has made 80 films till date. Certainly not from a director who got a National Award barely a year back for 'Kanchivaram'. This one is a rather amateur product which is best avoided. Blessy Chettiar of DNA gave it a rating of 2/5 and said, Khatta Meetha is a hotchpotch of too much drama and very little comedy.
