Typical 90's film
14 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan have given good movies in the early and mid 90s but slowly, their movies were becoming awful. This is one of their worst movies where the only thing that appeals is action, the action and songs are the only thing that work in this crass movie. The film came in 1998 when Akshay was not doing too well, he gave 7 flops in 1997 and that with flop films in 1998 and lasted until Akshay got his comeback with Jaanwar(1999). Saif Ali Khan was always flopping in the 90s with only Main Khiladi Tu Anari to his credit. Otherwise, it wasn't till Dil Chahata Hai when he got his first big hit.

Keemat is the duo's flop film that came in 1998, the film was completely rejected by the audience for it's cheesy dialogues and idiotic comedy. The comedy doesn't work at all in the first half, there are so over the top silly moments which only make you laugh because it's so silly. Saif and Akshay are robbers who succeed in each robbery but in one such incident, they accidentally get an innocent Ravi Kishen murdered. They find themselves in Ravi's village finding their parents devastated and upset for their son's death. There are some actual villains who are responsible for the murder and the rest of the film is how the duo avenge Ravi's death by taking out the villains.

Direction by Sameer Malkan who directed the flop but good Divya Shakti then the amazing blockbuster action comedy Main Khiladi Tu Anari sadly fails to create an impact here. The comedy is irritating and poorly handled while the romance is boring and slows down the movie. The action is the one thing that stands out, it impresses because Akshay excels in stunts. Saif's comedy only works when he is giving a live commentary of Akshay's action, which is funny.

Akshay Kumar does his usual rough and tough action hero role and he does it properly to some extent after which he is let down by the script. However, he stands out mainly because of the amazing stunts, at least he doesn't overact like he did in some of his movies from 1997. Saif Ali Khan lets down because in Main Khiladi Tu Anari, he was doing good with comedy, he fails here. He is the moron who tries to evoke laughter with his Casanova act but he completely fails like most of his films from the 90s. Raveena Tandon and Sonali Bendre are the heroines and they are mainly needed in the songs. Anupam Kher is good, he plays the typical upset father properly, the rest provide average support.

On the whole, Keemat is one of Akshay's and Saif's badly handled and clichéd movies from the late 90s when both were not doing well box office wise. They have acted in much better movies and it's wise to watch those ones, save yourself from this flop entertainment
