Storyline

Karan (Ashkay Kumar), a police officer whose brother is murdered by ruthless gangster Goli (Shakti Kapoor). Despite his best efforts, the only witness, Mona (Shilpa Shetty), is also killed. But Karan's plans for revenge are interrupted when he's ordered to work with Deepak (Saif Ali Khan), a famous actor training for his next role as a cop. The mismatched pair catch a break when they discover a crude dancer who looks just like Mona (Shetty again), and together they hatch a wild plan to bring Goli to justice.

I'm a brave fighter, and you're a cheap film star!
7 July 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan have made many films together, but none has shown them as collaborative as Yeh Dillagi and Main Khiladi Tu Anari. In this action comedy flick, they play two extremely different characters. Akshay is a tough policeman and Saif is a popular film star, who, fed up with the spineless romantic heroes he plays on-screen, decides to follow Akshay and learn his mannerisms as a preparation for a future role as policeman. Familiar, no? Well it's not an original film, but it's a decent Bollywoodised version which has its own style. The film is light, funny and does not take itself too seriously, and that's why it works. Akshay, in his own special well-known angry young man style, is nice and well cast. Saif is hilarious and basically plays himself. Wasn't he also so fed up with all the crap he was doing that he decided to try more experimental artistic films? Shilpa in a double role of (hold on!!) a bar dancer and a street dancer is awfully attractive, very sexy and vivacious, and her comic timing is top-notch. Just see the "Churake Dil Mera" song. This girl is just to die for. I never really understood why big production houses never bothered to sign her for their films. She was so perky, peppy, beautiful and evidently talented. Well, watch this decent Bollywood film from the 1990s. Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed.
