A Mindless Comedy!
7 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

'Khiladi 786' is A Mindless Comedy that is strictly meant for the masses of the hinterlands. It delivers mediocre entertainment!

'Khiladi 786' Synopsis: A good for nothing match-maker arranges a marriage of a don's sister to a crook.

'Khiladi 786' has a fairly entertaining first-hour, but the second-hour isn't. The Screenplay is inconsistent & pretty mindless. Sure, one doesn't mind escapism, but at least the goings-on could've been far more entertaining. Also, the songs pop-up pointlessly & drag the film's length. Ashish R Mohan's Direction is passable. Music by Himesh Reshammiya is foot-tapping, but the songs lend nothing to the narrative.

Performance-Wise: Akshay returns as Khiladi after a long hiatus & he's simply superb. He delivers from start to end. Asin is her usual self. Himesh Reshammiya looks out of place. Mithun is sincere. Raj Babbar & Mukesh Rishi are mere gap fillers. Johny Lever & Manoj Joshi are effective in cameos. The actor who enacts the role of Asin's boyfriend is alright.

On the whole, 'Khiladi 786' is mediocre.
