A frothy, light hearted entertainer from the maker of heavy duty
'emotional' stuff like Karan Arjun, Koyla, Khudgarz , Khel has some
compelling supporting performances by Mala Sinha as the matriarch
Sulakshana Devi looking for her lost grandchild and Anupam Kher as the
ready-to-break-into-an-old-time-song-anytime uncle. Madhuri Dixit too
is good as Seema, being a likability and grace to the various roles she
'dons ' in the movie. Sonu Walia as the glamorous but incredulously
gullible Tara Jaiwal is rather nice.
Anil Kapoor however looks too old and jaded. And Prem Chopra Balwant is too much of a caricature than a villain. Rajesh Roshan's music is good specially the "Khat Likhna Hai" track which deserves more air time than it usually gets.
The cons and swindles pulled off by the lead artistes are not innovative or groundbreaking, they rely heavily on the victims and audience's naiveté. Still, Khel works because it doesn't take itself too seriously. Neither should you.
