Khiladi 786

Rating : 2/10
Release Date : 7th December, 2012
Time : 140 minutes
Director :Ashish Mohan; Writer & Music: Himesh Reshammiya
Starring : Akshay Kumar, Asin, Mithun Chakraborty, Raj Babbar, , Rahul Singh, Manoj Joshi, Sanjay Misra

Disaster from frame one till the end, all in the name of providing entertainment / masala. I think I’ve begun to recognize the ingredients : lack of story, all similar looking fight sequences using cables, item numbers every few minutes coupled with jokes that desperately try to be funny and the same few lines repeated again and again in the background.

The non-existent story, by Himesh Reshammiya (also co-producer), gives himself a substantial role, possibly the only way he could get one, as the good-for-nothing son of a wedding planner cum match-maker. Himesh is determined to make at least one match happen and opportunity comes when a spunky girl, Asin, who delights in scaring grooms away, comes their way. She turns out to be the sister of a Don, Mithun, who wants a ‘sharif’ khandaan for his sister. Himesh happens to know someone, who he feels will be able to handle her. A cop in Punjab who specializes in breaking bones and cracking jokes, Akshay. The rest of the movie is spent just trying to make the match happen.

Raj Babbar, Johnny Lever, Manoj Joshi, Rahul Singh and several others have forgetful cameos. Inane sideplots include Akshay’s international family history and long lost brother, Asin’s love interest who’s struggling to get out of jail and a wheelchair bound person who lives in the Don’s house with his sister. The songs are universally terrible and when the final phera happens you’re the one who feels like distributing sweets.

Khiladi 786 is an oddball of a dhamaka that blends slapstick with stunts. It is farcical fun from first frame to the last. Asin has also given a stunning performance after Gajni...Go, have a blast.
