Possibly the best Indian action film!
7 July 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi is a pleasure to watch. It is one of the best Indian action films, and who would be a better choice for the leading role in the film if not the action hero himself, Akshay Kumar? The film is well shot, well cast, with great and catchy songs, good camera work, relatively high production values and superb locations. It was quite racy and surprising in many aspects. First, the WWF sequences with real undertakers who make appearances throughout the film. Secondly, Rekha, in a completely different role. Thirdly, the unusual locations, including Canada and Russia, which were quite refreshing for the times.

Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, in a brilliant mix of romance, comedy, thriller and of course action, tells the story of Akshay, an army officer who flies to USA for his brother's marriage. On his way he meets and falls for the beautiful Priya. He later finds out that his brother has disappeared, and the one responsible for this is a vicious and cruel criminal commonly known as Madam Maya, coincidentally Priya's sister. There starts the story of Akshay getting close to Maya, all in order to reunite with his brother.

This film is complete entertainment. It moves at a very steady pace, it never bores, and is overall an interesting and compelling flick. The action sequences are terrific and evidently well-invested. Akshay Kumar, the film's main protagonist, is fantastic in this "angry young man" role, which he plays in his own special style. He is good-looking, impressive, and proves yet again his superior prowess as an action star. This is one of his most underrated works at that time. Raveena is beautiful and attractive but does not really have much to do in terms of acting.

The film, however, entirely belongs to Rekha who is astonishing as the vicious and merciless Maya. She is convincing, stylish, beautiful, glamorous, and kudos for the courage romancing the much younger Akshay. And boy, I'm still shocked when I get reminded of her explicit clip with Akshay, when they mud-wrestled like heated animals and then had a joint shower! They literally took a shower together! Akshay is so lucky, man! She was sizzling and so sexually attractive, even at her forties. This actress never feared controversy, and here she emerged as a complete winner!

All in all, Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi is a must-watch. It represents the magic of Bollywood's 1990s cinema. Whether you're a Rekha fan, an Akki fan, a fan of action films, a fan of Hindi films, or simply someone who looks for entertainment, you can't miss this film.
