Desi Kung Fu Hustle- Khiladi 786
8 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

KHILADI 786 REVIEW

I am pretty damn sure every Bollywood fan knows what the Khiladi series is and has seen at least 1 Khiladi movie. The Khiladi series is a very interesting one and the Khiladi movies have absolutely no connection to each other except for the title, Akshay Kumar and hardcore action. The hype around Khiladi 786 was super high. So does Khiladi 786 meet the expectations?

The plot of Khiladi 786 is simple: Mansukh (Himesh Reshammiya) is a failure in his match- making career and after his father, Champaklal (Manoj Joshi), kicks him out of the house, he attempts to get this one job right- of marrying off TTT's (Mithun Chakraborty) sister, Indu Tendulkar (Asin) to a decent family. He chooses Bahattar Singh (Akshay Kumar) for the job thinking he is a cop and even convinces TTT to pretend to be a cop in front of Bahattar's family. Little did Mansukh know that Bahattar and his family are in- fact con- men. Also, while Bahattar falls for Indu, she is in love with a prisoner Azad (Rahul Singh). What happens next when both families pretend to be cops in front of each other forms the story.

The editing could have been better as well as the cinematography. Debutant director, Asish R Mohan does an average job behind the cameras. The songs are fantastic chart-busters with Balma, Sari Sari Raat and Hookah Bar being my favorites. Khiladi 786 is basically an over-the-top spoof. It does not take itself seriously and neither tells you to take it seriously. It has only one motive: ENTERTAINMENT at any cost. The comedy is over- the- top. There is slapstick, puns, one- liners, everything you expect. The action is over-the-moon. Bahattar is as fast as flash and as powerful as super- man but unlike Dabangg, Singham, etc. his powers have a reason here: 786. Akshay Kumar dwells well with both comedy and action. His punches and kicks (read: Roundhouse, Jump Roundhouse, Crescent, High Slap, etc.) are fantastic. Asin is good in a slightly different role and although her role isn't that big but it is meatier than her roles in Bol Bachchan and Housefull2. Mithun is very good as the goon and packs in good laughs. Himesh is average and tolerable. Others like Sanjay Mishra, Mukesh Rishi, Raj Babbar, Rajesh Khattar, Guggi, Johnny Lever are pretty good but they have been a bit wasted. The dialogues and one- liners bu Bunty Rathore are a treat though a few become annoying due to repetition. Overall, I would call this movie an over-the-top spoof. If you are looking for an intellectual movie, don't bother even watching the promos of this movie but if you are one of those who relish mass masala flicks, then make sure you watch this movie in the theaters and buy a DVD later on as well. Khiladi 786 would not be in my top 3 Khiladis but it does entertain for sure.

Rating: 8/10
