Khiladi 420 is the 7th installment in the Khiladi series. Like most of the previous Khiladi movies, Khiladi 420 is an Action- Thriller. It is directed by Neeraj Vora and stars Akshay Kumar, Akshay Kumar (double- role) and Mahima Choudhary.

The movie is about Dev (Akshay), who is a con- man and owes a lot of money to some gangsters. He hatches a plan to get all the money from Shyam Prasad (Alok Nath) and Ritu (Mahima). He manages to kill Shyam after he finds out Dev's true colors and tries to kill Ritu as well after she finds out the truth. Surprisingly, Dev has also written a suicide letter for himself. Ritu manages to kill Dev and run away. However, she later sees Dev again at home without any wounds and injuries.

The movie has some twists and turns which keep you glued to the movie. However, some of the scenes are dragged and get boring. The songs are OK. Direction by Neeraj is fine but can be better. The script is good. The camera- work is not that good.

Mahima Choudhary is fine. Alok Nath is good. The goons are fine. The main hero of the movie is Akshay Kumar. He performs both the negative and positive roles brilliantly. The other best thing about the movie is its stunts. Khiladi 420 has one of the best and most dangerous stunts ever seen in Bollywood. Keep your eyes open for the plan stunt.
