A gorgeous toy named Mumtaz
21 July 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Khilona is a Hindi melodrama, and one can expect to see in it everything that is associated with the genre. I personally am not a big fan of this sort of movies, the sole reason being the fact that they never really have a strong emotional impact on me. Having said that, I quite enjoyed Khilona, and for more than one reason. The film generally has a nice story, and it may be melodramatic, but it's also quite poetic. The sets are lavish and pleasant to the eye, and the songs are also quite nice. It's not to say as if I thoroughly enjoyed it. It annoyed me several times throughout, and at some point I found myself bored and uninterested. One thing that particularly irritated me throughout the film is that Khilona, like most of the commercial movies of the time, has some very poor attempts at comedy, which are presented in a silly subplot which is completely unrelated to the main story. The comic sequences involving Jagdeep were redundant and unbearable, and had they been edited out the movie would have benefited a lot. But then again, this is a certain genre of movies, and that's how it works. Now to the main reason the film worked for me, well, it's pretty obviously Mumtaz. Wow, this lady is really one of the most beautiful actresses of her time, and here she is a pleasure to look at, probably more than ever - baby-faced, extremely pretty, and terribly attractive. Actingwise, she plays her part with grace and restraint and is very charming. It's quite clear that Sanjeev Kumar's role is surreal, but in a movie like this it's not a big deal, and in his favour it can be said that he evidently has fun with his character and plays it with spontaneity, providing some entertainment. Among the supporting cast, Shatrughan Sinha as the bad guy impressed me the most. The film's final sequences and particularly the messy and ultimately sugarcoated ending were hilarious, unintentionally of course. Anyway, Khilona, in spite of many of its flaws, is overall a watchable film though it is strictly for lovers of the genre.
