Storyline

Former freedom fighter, Sinha, has always believed in the rule of the law over violence. He watches in disapproval as Police Inspector Dawood Durani is arrested, charged with killing his wife, Shehnaz, the daughter of Mirza Lucknowi. He also watches with despair when his pupil, Kishan Kashyap, frequently loses his temper over not getting employed, and when he does get employed as a Police Inspector, shows arrogance and contempt of the law. Sinha's views change dramatically when he watches two women being murdered by a man named Balu. When he reports this matter to Inspector Deshmukh, he is told to check his vision as Balu was somewhere else during this incident. When Sinha persists and decides to approach higher authorities, his lovely daughter, Kavita, the girlfriend of Kishan, is abducted, his Journalist son, Amrit, is killed, and his daughter-in-law, Vimladevi, may well be in league with the killers. The question remains will Sinha still continue to hold his faith in law and order? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

One of Akshay's earlier films
31 May 2011 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Akshay Kumar without any doubt is a talented actor, he has many movies to his credit. However, he has many horrible movies to his credit too. Some of his early movies are known to be absolute duds at the box office. These films from the early 90s witnessed only decent performances from Akki but in general the whole movies would be nothing but letdowns. In the year 1992, Akshay continued his journey at the box office after the debut of Saugandh which didn't quite work at the box office. 1992 promised to be the same if Akshay wouldn't have received a miracle from Abbas Mustaan in the name of Khiladi. This film not only gave him a superhit but was his actual launch for him, this movie made him. This movie was equal to even 20 flop films of his from the time as those flops didn't stop him from getting noticed. His hits kept on happening and despite the flops and a few disasters, his career got comebacks.

Kayda Kanoon is another flop film of Akshay Kumar's from the year 1993. During the early 90s, Akshay had only Khiladi that got him noticed and gave him lots of offers. These offers he accepted sadly turned out to be flops. It was the Khiladi series and a few other low budget hits that helped him move on and succeed as a Bollywood actor.

Anyways, Kayda Kanoon is one of his not so good films from 1993. In fact, none of his film from 1993 suceeded except Waqt Hamara Hai which was with his not so good friend Sunil Shetty. Akki and Sunil became friends after 2000 when their rivarly kind off ended.

Kayda Kanoon is another Bollywood film where Akshay plays the police officer who gets wronged and then he teams up with another wronged person to murder all the corrupt villains. This is the basic story and yes it is not anything memorable as it is the same typical story except it is 2 action heroes this time. However, I find Akki superior to Sudesh as Sudesh isn't really a good actor, he is more of a clichéd television actor.

Acting is quite average, Akshay Kumar does a good job though he was quite raw during his early days. But he does well and entertains for the most part. His action scenes are a delight, those days action used to be good. Anupam Kher does a good job and his realization is quite realistic. The others like Kader Khan, Sudesh Behry and the clichéd heroine Farheen all disappoint.

Direction by Pradeep Mini is quite outdated, the film seems to be like it from the 80s with clichéd scenes, clichéd dialogs, annoying comedy.

The only plus points are a few of the dialogs, Akshay's action and his acting to a certain extent, and a few songs.

On the whole, Kayda Kanoon is good for a one time watch, but for the most part is a below average film.
