Khiladi "Akshay Kumar" and Khiladi "Abbas-Mastan" stage an entry
3 November 2010 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

It was the era where music companies promoted the songs at great lengths resulting in record sales of the cassettes (there were no CD's back then). Audience used to catch the bait of super-hit music and flock to the cinema houses. It goes without saying that Jatin-Lalit's melodious music was backed up with marketing muscle of Venus resulting in a product "Khiladi".

"Khiladi" itself turned out to be a a surprise package as the expectations were nothing more than a romantic flick. The murder and the suspense added novelty to the proceedings resulting in a runaway hit.

Akshay Kumar:: "Khiladi" served as a good platform which could showcased his skills. And yes, he got noticed.

Ayesha Jhulka:: Her fan-following owing to her previous outing "Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander" ensured to flock to the cinema halls and contributed the two-cents

Deepak Tijori:: An extended "Aashiqui" role.

Sabeeha:: Gave another go in this movie and then probably left Bollywood for good.

Johnny Lever:: Had a good comedy track and later on went to become a Abbas-Mastan regular.

Rest of the star-cast namely Tinnu Anand, Shakti Kapoor, Beena and Anant Mahadevan were adequate. The college comedy ensures fair share of laughs. Music as I stated earlier was the key-factor.

Quite later I was made aware that the plot was a direct lift of "Khel Khel Mein". The climax had an edge-of-seat excitement (and I wouldn't be surprised if it was plagiarised again).

Verdict: A wholesome entertainer.
