As the popular 90s show Khichdi franchise has released a sequel film Khichdi 2: Mission Paanthukistan with a clever release date of the family comedy drama on November 17, around the Diwali holidays, the film has performed commercially well in theatres despite clashing its release around Salman Khan's big release Tiger 3.
All the '90s kids and families flooded the theatres to watch the family drama and heart-warmed movie-goers flooded the internet with mixed reviews while some called the film "laugh riot" and "perfect stress buster" others called out the cons of the comedy family adventure drama.

Caught #Khichdi2 last night and I must say it is a treat for all the comedy and franchise lovers. Praful antics in #Khichdi2 are pure comedy gold ! The first half is pure gold while the second half focuses on comedy as well as on the core story. All in one this movie will tickle… pic.twitter.com/fD47CnuNn9— CineHub (@Its_CineHub) November 18, 2023

Another admirer of the film called the film a pure "laugh riot" however, pointed out the cons of the film giving an honest review.
Just watched #KHICHDI2 with the family. Pure laugh riot! If you love the Parekh family, it's more of them but sillier!— શિવમ્ Shivam (@CynicalShiv) November 17, 2023
The only con is songs because they kind of blocked the flow but other than that, a pure comedy movie after a long time! #khichdi2review
A nostalgic fan of the show in a video review admired how the film will take viewers back into Nostalgia but called out the film to be a "one-time-watch" and warned watchers to not use any "logic" while watching the film calling it a "Time Pass watch."
