Let me start by saying that THIS episode is what Koffee with Karan is ALL about! Ranbir Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan; cousins who are rarely seen together and may never be seen in a movie sharing the screen come together on that sizzling couch to show the world how much… chemistry they share! Kareena was dressed in a hot pink which really did remind me a little of her first appearance on the show even before she mentioned it after her welcome. Ranbir was looking ever so dashing in blue. They wore the typical gender colours but there was nothing typical about this relationship. Karan Johar has seriously got to get better after this because there was much laughter, much mischief and a helluva lot of fun in this fantastic episode – comparatively to last week’s Salman Khan who I felt was a little thanda.
Rightfully, the topic of conversation was bound to be Katrina Kaif and it was most of the time. Kareena dropped not only hints but basically admitted to the relationship where Ranbir shied away from doing so. Hats off to the guy who really wants to keep this one under wraps but it always being forced to talk about it. There have been many reports post the episode regarding Kareena’s announcement to perform a dance on all of Katrina’s famous hits at their wedding (should they get married) and also about Ranbir being a little miffed about having a reputation of a casanova thanks to last season’s Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone episode.
My personal best bits of the episode:
– When Kareena asks Ranbir ‘Are you in love with Katrina Kaif?’ and Ranbir doesn’t know what to say but eventually says ‘I love Kareena’. Bebo then says, ‘You just need to add a T’. Priceless!
– When Kareena says she would have a gay encounter with her ‘sister-in-law Katrina Kaif’ if forced to do so at gunpoint. This was probably one of the most poignant parts of the whole episode because Ranbir’s hand gesture and facial expression was of utter horror. Another priceless moment!
– When Kareena said Deepika would make a good pilot, Katrina would be a good air hostess, Sonam a fashion designer and Sonakshi a housewife – kya yaar! Too funny!
– The whole of the ‘How well do you know the Kapoors?’ segment was utterly hilarious. I was laughing so much that I was crying.
Overall, I think this was indeed a treat for us who love both Ranbir and Kareena separately for their work. It’s great to see them come together, play ‘bhai-behena’ and create a total ruckus on the show, often leaving Karan in fits of laughter. The only other episodes that have made me laugh so much have been Abhishek Bachchan with Preity Zinta and when Kajol came with SRK and she was laughing so much that she squealed. Typical Kajol moment!
Kareena Kapoor Khan – may you always stay as real and flippant as you are. I love you ‘I don’t care what the world thinks’ attitude!
Ranbir Kapoor – Kya kahen? I’m glad you’re happy but you’ll be breaking many hearts if you wed anytime soon!
Long live the Kapoor khandaan… thank you Karan, for this wonderful gift! I feel on a total high after this one.
