There Is No ‘Khiladi’ Series!
danish | November 5, 2012, 11:04 PM | 94 comments | 1 views


With the idiots at the helm of affair of the ‘C’ grade looking khiladi 786 trying to make it look like the biggest franchise of bollywood (ya with most of them flops and just 2 clean hits its sure got to be the biggest franchise!) what is amusing is the white lie that is the khiladi series itself. actually there is no such thing as the khiladi series or franchise.

how does a film become a sequel of another. by having a common character, an extended story or at least (as akshay’s dumb fans wud agree wholeheartedly) at least by having a common hero (thats the only basis they think that makes up the khiladi series.) apart from that all khiladi films have nothing in common.

but the fact is that even the hero in all khiladi films is not common. khel khiladi ka had dharmendra and dhruv, khatron ke khiladi had dharmendra, sanjay dutt and chunke pandey the hero of the 1st khiladi was e billimoria in 1945, the lead in second khiladi was ashok kumar in 1950, and the 1968 khiladi had fearless nadia as the main lead. shatranj ke khiladi 1977 starred the great sanjeev kumar and saeed jaffery. come to think of it even small time comedian mohan choti of ysteryears played the hero in ‘ek khiladi baawan pattey’.

akshay kumar starred in khiladi (1992) and some more disparate films with the word khiladi thrown in without any common story line or character with just two of them hits (sabse bada khiladi and khiladiyon ka khiladi) and rest all flops. but so did fardeen khan (ek khiladi ek haseena) and some dubbed films like khiladi no 1 and ek anari do khiladi.

but trust the dumb akshay kumar fans to buy the stupid and imaginary khiladi series and queue up for its tickets!

    @iitianway – “Tango jee ..aap maharatsra mein nahin ho ..nahin to yaha aap and baap dono ko tum/tu hi karke bola jaata hain…
    yeh marathi bhasha ka gun/abgun hain pata nahin…”

    Kaunse Maharastra mei Baap to “TU” bulate hai??
    Mai jis Maharashtra ko jaanta hu waha to baap ko “Tumhi” syn Hindi “Aap” bulate hai.

    @Danish Bhai – WELCOME BACK … :D
    @article ….. well Khiladi is more of a media/fans made name given to Akki. Naming a movie as Khiladi series is just a marketing strategy.

    Most of the series/sequels these days are made to “CASH” more money and Khiladi is doing the same thing.

    1. iitianWay

      RETT dear..yahi ..”tumhi” jab hindi speaking guys se bola jaata hain to tum and tu ban jaata hain …and it is ture. I am in Pune…and we all have this small issue from marathi guys..specially from junior ones.

      1. rockie_EK THA TIGER

        You call a friend/brother as “Tu” which is equivalent of “Tu/Tum” in Hindi.
        You call your elders as “Tumhi” which is equivalent of “Aap” in Hindi.

        “Tumhi” is with respect and is not syn to “Tum” but more-so to “Aap”.

        —-> You can confirm this with you marathi colleagues. Ask them ….
        Do you call your father by TU or TUMHI?
        Do you call your friend by TU or TUMHI?

        1. iitianWay

          lets stop this here only..just mentioned few cultural diff/indiff things.

          but new comers specially.. females.. when they go to govt offices.. face hard time when they are referred as .. tu yaha ja ..tu waha ja

          1. rockie_EK THA TIGER

            Yes I understand that few ppl find it difficult, but then one has to adjust with the local flavor if you are new.

            For example when I came to US, I did not expect the US govt officials at airport to speak with Indian accent since I am new here. :)

            Its more of you trying and understanding them rather than expecting them to understand you.

    Even Western UP (especially the Jatt belt) has this tu tadak thing, but not amongst literate ppl.

    @dr nisheet – yahaan blogging karne aate ho ya medical practice karne?

    aur dr ho to jaante hoge ki sehat ke liye itni frustration achhi nahin. ho sake to koi logical jawaab do as to why is khiladi a series and uday chopra’s pyaar impossible is not part of the pyaar series.

    @iitrianway – ho sake to koi logical jawaab do as to why is khiladi a series and uday chopra’s pyaar impossible is not part of the pyaar series.

    @gorilla – 1. – wat did u mean akshay did not star in any khiladi titled film? he did in many.

    2. the genre thing was the answer to tango’s lame reason that a ‘quasi-series’has many films with similar titles in the same genre. even i know khiladi series doesnt have any common genre. hence there is no khiladi sries.

    3. khiladi title and the word khiladi as part of a title has been in vogue since 1945 as i showed above with examples. so there is nothing to thank akshay for on this front too. if at all anyone owns the khiladi series, its e billimoria.

    4. of the 5 ‘memorable’ khiladi films u listed, 3 were not even simple hits forget superhits, bb or atbb. how are they memorable for u is highly subjective. most even wudnt have heard of them. they are hardly telecast on prime time television (they are mostly telecast in weekdays day time) and that indicates how much of a memorable classic they are.

    5. point 5 is entirely ur subjective opinion. the fact is msk was a story abt salman’s character. a man who has anger management problems coming in the way of his love life. akshay was incidental to the plot. just a comedian.

    @tango – sir aapki baat is like saying á clockwork orange’and hum aapke hain kaun’both had background music so they belong to the same genre.

    wat is this ‘real action” thing? before ‘matrix’it was all real action only in all movies. and which film doesnt have comedy? if u r trying to say mr and mrs khiladi and international khiladi were the same genre – well u deserve to be made to watch khiladi 786 1st day 1st show – front row with ur eyes kept opend up with the help of safety pins.

    and by the way that bolo bolo tell tell” was a take off on wat shilpa shirodkar does in the wilm gopi kishan (1995). its called a ‘pop cultural refrence”in a piece of writing. ismien itna offended hone ki koi baat nahin.

    @sahildiksha – wen have i contested akshay is popularly known as khiladi. all i have said is that there is no khiladi sries.

    @rockieek tha tiger – thanx dude. ab to dabangg 2 ban jao, tiger ne to 200 cr kar liye.

    @jacksparrow – ho sake to koi logical jawaab do as to why is khiladi a series and uday chopra’s pyaar impossible is not part of the pyaar series.

  6. Dhamaka

    @ Tango
    “All the khiladi movies featuring have comedy and above all real action, same was the case in Khiladi 420 and Mr. & Mrs Khiladi.”

    Real action :(
    i am afraid this time they are killing this basic ingredient of khiladi movies i mean when you have akki in your movie then is there any need to take help from OTT scenes :(

  7. Dr.Nisheet

    @danish—-maine logical jawab hi diya hai par wo tumhari samaj se bahar hai……1 and only thing i again repeat here—-If salman khan “a great actor” of bollywood for you…..than….khiladi is Biggest….greatest…..best…..series in BOLLYWOOD thats all…….you have to admit both or none……

  8. danish

    @dhamaka@gorilla – by this logic khiladi 786 is not part of the khiladi series as it has wat they call OTT action?

    @dr nisheet- salman khan is one of the 3 (dilip, amiktabh, salman) greatest commercial actors of bollywood and its been established by the public vote, thru boxoffice footfalls over 24 years.

    that khiladi is a flop series has been established by the same audiences by making just two of them hits and rest flops. as for khiladi not being a series at all, read the above article carefully, again.

    ye salman ki tareef kar rahe ho ya skhay ki? ek list mein salman top par hai to dossri mein, sabse zyaada filmein bhi ussi ki hain.

    aur dabangg 2 baaki hai. khiladi 786 ka to allaah malik hai. its looking so cheap. though two songs are good.

  11. Dr.Nisheet

    @danish—-get some logic……if having akshay in so many khiladi movies don’t make khiladi a brand or series….then how come hit films of salman make….an actor’s acting good….might that director…story are good….but this not at all means that acting of perticular actor….

  12. Kumar3798

    Before Der were hardly any Films That was Made Continuously To bank on The Image of Any Oarticular Lead Actor.I Agree there were few Films Which had d Word Khiladi in Them but No way They were Popular or Had Anything to Do With d Image of a Star.It was then in 1992 when Khiladi Came nd Became A Clean Hit nd Industry nd Audience Got to know a New Young Handsome Young Man who Imoressed Girls with his Looks nd Thrilled Everyone with his Karate Fight Scenes.Suddenly the Name KHILADI got Attachex to Him az It Suited his Real Life Image Because he Was Athletic.So Ppl Started Knowing Him By The Name Khiladi nd KHILADI was Born.So Filmmakers Startex Makng Films Named Khiladi by Having Akshay as The Lead to Bank On his Image.Acc to Trade Khiladi ,MKTA ,KKK,SBK were Clean Hits nd K420 nd International Khiladi were Average,Only Film That Was Not Successful Theatrically Was Mr & Mrs.Khiladi were Akshay was Spotted in a Comic Avatar first time Apart From his Action Image but This Film Became very Popular on TV in Long Run.

    All Haters should Accept it That there may be few Films that had Khiladi words in The Title but it had Nothing to do With the Image of thd Hero nd Many of Them are Unknown to Maximum of Norm Audience.So D Films that were Made In Regular Succesion Keeping Akzhay’s Khiladi Image in

    @dr nisheet – u missed the magic word, despite using it in ur below quoted sentence where i am highlighting it by writing in capital letters.

    “if having akshay in so many khiladi movies don’t make khiladi a brand or series….then how come HIT films of salman make….an actor’s acting good…”

    THE MAGIC WORD IS HIT!

    salman’s hit films indicate public approval of his acting. not one success but repeated 35 successes in 24 years definitely show public approval of his acting thru ticket sales/fotfall.

    the failure of most (70%) khiladi films prove that public doesnt care for them. suppose i have 5000 cr rupee. i can make a series of 500 films at the budget of 10 cr each. and if all of them are disasters will it mean its a hit brand/series.

    similarly the only khiladi films that gt public approval were sabse bada khiladi and khiladiyon ka khiladi that was 16 years back. since then public has increasingly distanced themselves frm the so called khiladi series, including those of akshay, fardeen and venkatesh. if khiladi 786 works, it will be a stand alone success.

    having said that my article was about how there is no such thing as the khiladi series. so there is no question of its brand value since it doesnt exist.

    @kumar 3798 – 1. all the 3 khiladi movies before akshay’s 1992 khiladi showcased their lead heroes (in one case heroine) as smart suave, able bodied winners. there is no other way to justify the title.

    2. only kkk and sbk were clan hits. records are there for all to see on boxofficeindia.com

    3. as far as audiences are concerned i dont think many remeber internatinal khiladi or khildi 420. even main khiladi tu anadi is doubtfull. actually there is no way to find this out but i will still try.

    khiladiyn ka khiladi google search has 55000 pages.

    http://www.google.co.in/search?hl=en&newwindow=1&site=webhp&source=hp&q=khiladiyon+ka+khiladi&oq=khiladiyon&gs_l=hp.1.0.0l10.1301.3700.0.6181.10.8.0.0.0.0.491.1507.3j2j1j1j1.8.0.les%3B..0.0…1c.1.3zalRH4scKc

    it was no 6 n the year 1996. at no 1 was raja hindustani. it yields 16 lakh plus pages.

    at number 10 that year was bandit queen. it has 14 lakh pages. now thats wat i wud call a ‘memorable film’ though in the limited universe of internet users.

    http://www.google.co.in/search?hl=en&newwindow=1&q=bandit+queen&oq=bandit+queen&gs_l=serp.12..0l10.5970.49917.0.51693.16.12.0.4.4.0.283.1594.3j4j3.10.0.les%3B..0.0…1c.1.L5yoEuf-Pwg

    it shows that at leats in the universe of internet users the most successful khiladi series film is not memorable at all, as compared to the no 1 and no 10 films. so how do u measure it now? do u have any other data?

  15. jacksparrow

    @jacksparrow – ho sake to koi logical jawaab do as to why is khiladi a series and uday chopra’s pyaar impossible is not part of the pyaar series/////

    wtf………seriously,dnt argue with a Danish, he will drag you down to his level n beat you with experience……..i loose

  16. danish

    @awesomeakshay – kinka? akshay kumar ka na?

    @jacksparrow – ho sake to koilogical jawaab……..

  17. Kumar3798

    @Danish U seems to br d Most Foolish one U r Useless,Always come uo with some idiotic post .Pls dont Pay heed to his Posts.Just Leave him Alone with his Baseless Posts .Enjoy Danish

  18. jacksparrow

    illogical question pe logical answer maang raha hai, reminds me of digvijay singh

  19. danish

    @kumar3798 – koi logical jawaab ho to…….

  20. danish

    @jacksparrow – digvijay singh is a big time congress leader and royalty. i take it as a compliment.

  21. Alfa.one

    here I fully support danish on khiladi title. It is all media made and akshay and his fans taking it seriously and enjoying too. Just like king khan or perfectionist khan which also is media made and the fans and the stars also started enjoying it thinking they are king and perfectionist. In fact out of all the films with khiladi title in which akshay acted, hardly one or two were successful. Also this so called king and so called perfectionist have given utter craps after they were given these bullshit titles.

  22. jacksparrow

    kabhi “bhaunka” suna hai? term used for people like digvijay singh! they talk illogical stuff to b in limelight n earn browny points from party high command n whts amusing, they always expect a logical debate! by all means, its a compliment

  23. sahildiksha

    Danish give us a logical answer that you are not jealous of akshay and you are not an insane..

  24. danish

    @alfa.one – thanx! but my point is not abt the success of khiladi series, but its NON-EXISTENCE. any disparate films cant be called a series just becoz the word khiladi is common. there are many ‘khiladi films’ with other actors too!

    @jacksparrow – thats ur view on diggyraja. congress think he is worth being a aprty spokesman.

    @sahildiksh – here are the logical answers why i am not jealous of akshay

    1. i a not an actor

    2. i never wooed a girl he won over.

    3. i am not his age

    4. i am more intelligent than him

    5. he is not the best in his field, salman is. if i have to get jealous of an actor i will get jeaous of the best that is salman.

  25. sahildiksha

    @danish
    1. i a not an actor…..thank god
    2. i never wooed a girl he won over…you have such class…?
    3. i am not his age…proof???
    4. i am more intelligent than him…give logic
    5. he is not the best in his field, salman is….but people say salman is dumb ass

  26. danish

    @sahildiksha – i told u the reasons i am not jealous of akshay. u have given ur reactions on my reaosns-w hich however rude, are welcome. but it still proves i am not jealous of akshay.

    the only funny thing i found in ur above comment was — akshay and class. hahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    sorry! that was the south delhi snob in me laughing.
