Action Classic!
12 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

'Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi' (Player of Players) is an action movie starring Akshay Kumar, Rekha and Raveena Tandon. First of all, let me tell you that it's rating as of now is only '5.4' which I disagree with. It should have at least a '6' just for its action.

The movie starts slow with a wrestling match between two wrestlers and some other stuff here and there. The real fun and entertainment begins when Akshay enters the frame. The plot is not brilliant but it is fine. It is about Akshay (Akshay Kumar) trying to save his brother from the webs of underworld don, Maya (Rekha), who also turns out to be Priya's (Raveena Tandon) sister, whom Akshay has already fallen for.

The movie does have flaws. The songs are too much and not that good. The movie's start is very slow as well and it could have been edited better.

Rekha gives the best performance out of the lot and is stupendous as the villain. Raveena is fine. Her chemistry with Akshay is just fantastic. The BEST thing about the movie, though, would be the action sequences with Akshay 'Khiladi' Kumar. My 3 favorites would be the 'Car Street Fight', '10 Steps Fight' and 'Full Leg Split Combat'. Truly great action.

Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi was a super hit in its time and it deserved to be.
