    Verdict - A funny movie in the mindless entertainment genre. Who needs clever?

    Khiladi 786Watch trailerRelease date : December 07, 2012

    I had completely missed the promotions and publicity for Khiladi 786. Also, am not overly fond of Akshay Kumar. So, it was wearing my most cynical expression that I landed up a the theatre at 9am and prepared to be assaulted by gibberish. The beginning of the movie did not promise much. Tacky, outdated credits with a Dabanng hangover song playing. Akshay even looked like he was aping Salman in the police uniform.And I cringed a bit. But then the movie gathered steam and how! The story rapidly develops. Akshay plays a thug from Punjab who hijacks trucks carrying smuggled goods and then splits the loot with the Punjab police. Asin is the daughter of a big time bhai in Mumbai with a boyfriend in jail. Himeshbhai is a marriage fixer thrown out by his dad as a failure. Asin won't get married till boyfriend is out, Akshay can't get married coz no one wants a thug as a husband and Himeshbhai tries to break the jinx on his luck by getting them together. Of course, the catch is no one knows the other party is a thug family. They are all trying to gain respectability through marrying into the Police force. This situation leads to a first half which is hysterically funny. The laughs come at a pace which match Akshay's knock out punches and leave you giggling madly. Akshay has a proven flair for the comic which he exploits, and the rest of the cast including Mithun and Raj Babbar add to the hilarity. The second half is not as funny nor as fast paced but by then you are in a super mood and happy to go along with the proceedings. Himeshbhai is in fine fettle with the music. The songs are sheer kitsch and perfect for the movie. Khiladi 786 is in the Golmaal mould and is sure to be a hit with the kids also. Dont look for depth and meaning and too much cleverness and yiu will be happy. I totally recommend this one as a kick- off to the end -of -year relaxed feeling. Go and enjoy!
