Khiladi 786 (2012) *MQ*

null
Mansukh (Himesh Reshammiya) is the son of a veteran marriage fixer, who wants to step out of his father’s shadow to achieve success on his own. When Mansukh is hired by dreaded don Tatya Tendulkar (Mithun Chakraborty) for finding a suitable boy for his sister Indu (Asin), Mansukh decides to get her married off to Bahattar Singh (Akshay Kumar), a Punjabi do-gooder, who impersonates as a police-man to help the real police by nabbing the bad guys.

However, there is a slight hitch: Mansukh thinks Bahattar is a real cop and convinces Tatya to lie about being a cop, so that his underworld reputation does not ruin the marriage plans. On the other hand, Indu is in love with someone else and is trying her best to get rid of Bahattar, who has fallen for her. What follows is a comedy of errors as both sides struggle to keep up the facade of respectability.

KHILADI 786 is an old-school wacky potboiler. There isn’t an iota of logic here and one is not even looking for intelligence, rationale or justification either. The film is packed with ingredients that constitute a wholesome entertainer such as humor, South-styled stunts with the one-man army outsmarting a bunch of deadly goons and of course, visually enticing songs every 15/20 minutes, but the writing has its share of hiccups…

Debutant director Ashish Mohan who has been a constant Assistant director of Rohit Shetty brings in all the elements of his mentor’s film into this one; only in a much more tawdry manner. The film contains some of the most cliched formulas of typical Bollywood potboilers. The first half makes still for a decent watch while the second almost leaves you tired and disinterested.

The action part of this action-comedy gets redefined here by almost doing nothing and leaving it all to your ‘long-fed-with-over-the-top-action’ imagination. For instance, Akshay only has to move his foot for the people around him to go flying all over. Apparently, the Punjabis have raftaar and he is so quick that you can’t see him fight.

As for the comedy part, there’s a lot of rehash work done there and one can’t help but laugh at the imbecile attempt at making it work. Some of the gags do elicit a laughs while some only make you laugh at the stupidity of it all. But nonetheless you do laugh a lot.
