  • Gorilla’s WOM Prediction for #Khiladi786 : Picture Hit Hai

    Expectation from Khiladi 786: I think the promos set it right. The movie was always promoted as a mindless entertainer. The songs and dialog promos set up the expectation right, something which Talaash couldn’t do as efficiently. WOM for Khiladi 786: The WOM is decent/mixed but more towards the +ve side. The movie is primarily riding on Akshay’s shoulder. His presence is making the tilt towards the +ve side. WOM for this movie is lower than Housefull2 or Rowdy Rathore. However success of these movies are showing in Akshay’s performance in K786. In three words K786 is a time pass movie and this is what it was meant to be. BO Prediction: The movie will emerge as a solid hit but will fall short of

His latest outing Khiladi 786, which has been directed by Ashish R Mohan, has opened to a fantastic response at the Indian Box Office on the first day. It has slowed down the phase of Aamir Khan’s last week release Talaash. Khiladi 786, which has released in 2,786 screens in India today(December 7), has recorded very good amount of footfalls in both single screens and multiplexes in the morning and matinee shows across the country. The Akshay and Asin starrer has registered 75% to 90% occupancy in single screens and 70% to 85% occupancy in multiplexes.

  • Khiladi 786 Has Mixed Opening

    Friday 7th December 2012 12.30 IST Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network Khiladi 786 had a mixed opening as some centres opened well while others were below the mark. The film took a 80% start at some single screens of UP bit in the same circuit some of the Delhi multiplexes were just 35%. The best opening is in UP and some other areas are also good but many big cities are below the mark. The film has wide release on around 2750 screens which should enable day one to put up a decent number but whether the number is strong as a 2750 screen release should be is another matter. A stronghold market for Akshay Kumar like East Punjab has not opened too strongly and may not

  • India Today Review Khiladi 786: true dhamaal, Akshay style

    Read more at: http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/khiladi-786-true-dhamaal-akshay-style/1/236496.html Film: Khiladi 786 Cast: Akshay Kumar, Asin, Mithun Chakraborty, Himesh Reshammiya, Raj Babbar and Rahul Singh; Director: Ashish R.Mohan Rating: *** What can be said about a film where a couple named Mili and Bhagat conspire to bring their employer’s empire down? Mili? Bhagat? Get it? Khiladi 786 is the kind comic orgy done in shades of green, orange and pink, which doesn’t require us to strain our brain. The kicks and grunts, guffaws and chortles, the antics raillery and tomfoolery flow out unstoppered like an uncapped toothpaste tube. The formula is simple. And stark. Get the audience to laugh at any cost. And some of it does work quite well. Shukriya. We have a hero. No, make that a super-duper-hero,

  • I thought Imran Khan was a paedophile-Anushka Sharma

    Subhash K Jha (MUMBAI MIRROR; December 7, 2012)   Perhaps in a bid to live up to her free spirited image, Anushka Sharma at a recent press event held on Tuesday, landed her pretty foot-in-the-mouth. In answer to a question about what she thought of her Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola co-star Imran Khan, the actress said, “I thought he was a paedophile,” and giggled. For the next few seconds, everybody present at the event was rendered speechless. Imran, being a thorough gentleman, simply replied: “Yeah, I’ve heard such talks doing the rounds.” But unlike Imran, people from the industry haven’t been able to take the statement in good humour. A senior filmmaker who happened to see Anushka’s outburst of cocky exuberance wondered if she

  • They thought Asian actors were troublemakers-Gulshan Grover

    As told to Mehul S Thakkar (MUMBAI MIRROR; December 7, 2012)   When I started off, actors who wanted to work in Hollywood, packed their bags and left the country, settled there. None of the successful actors with an impressive body of work here, thought of venturing into Hollywood without wanting to settle there. And I wanted to be an exception. It was in the 90s. There was no clarity on how to get an agent, get films. I had gone for a show with Aamir and Shah Rukh to Los Angeles. I figured Hollywood had no idea of how we work here, who were our biggest stars. What’s more, the agents there wanted aspirants to stay there, not come back. Communication was a problem.

  • Sanket’s Review: “Khiladi 786” is dreadfully boring.

    Cast: Akshay Kumar, Asin, Mithun Chakraborthy, Himesh Reshammiya. Director: Ashish R Mohan Length: 2.20 hours approximately Agreed that this is the time of potboilers and mindless entertainers, but this all hits the mark only if the conviction constraint is maintained throughout the film! Forgettable and annoying, KHILADI 786 looks more like Himesh Reshammiya’s Album release where the story travels only to bring to a situation which permits the song to roll down and the actors to break into a dance. In first half, every-time that Akshay arrives on screen, a loud background score is thrown and not just once or twice, but every single time. The jokes are so clumsy and clunked, that they cringe you. The action scenes are has déjà-vu feeling where all

  • Bollywood’s special connection with number 786 !!

    Film historian SMM Ausaja notes: “The number gained popularity after its intelligent use in Yash Chopra’s Deewaar, and subsequently it attained a cult status in the socio-cultural fads. In fact, eight years later in 1983, the number re-emerged in Coolie - a film which completed a mind-boggling 75-week run across major metros.”

  • Review: Khiladi 786 is unfunny, unclever

    hubir Rishi feels Khiladi 786 is a wannabe funny movie, an assault on our collective intellect. Disclaimer: The writer of this review has been brought up on a constant diet of bad-good movies such as Gunda, Clerk, Saawariya [ Images ] and Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon, and his patience for such movies is limitless. BUT, I have also lost count of the number of times I have wanted to run away, or close my eyes and wished the movie was finished, or simply, duck under the seat or hide my face. The last such movie was unfortunately another Akshay Kumar [ Images ] starrer — Joker. These movies come under a category called — SO-bad-I-want-to-be-The-Punisher. Khiladi 786 is one such movie.

  • Why i hate Aamir and his fans ?

    1- Aamir Satatment – Talaash is not an Universal film or Mass film. My Point – Had Akshay ever said 8×10 Tasveer flopped because it was not an Universal film.Had Hrithik ever said Guzarish flopped because it was not an Universal film. Had SRK ever said MNIK underperformed because it was not an Universal film or Mass film. 2- Aamir Satatment – Dhobhi Ghat was i niche film. My Point – Agreed. But What is Burfi ? Even the biggest fan of Ranbeer Kapoor was unsure about it but it went past 100 cr. So why this neech statment. (If you understand hindi you know what neech means ? 3- 3 idiot done over 200 cr with just 1600-1700 screen.

  • KHILADI 786 film review by taran adarsh 3.5 stars

    Khiladi 786 By Taran Adarsh, 6 Dec 2012, 22:49 hrs IST Now that the 1980s’ variety of masala films are being lapped up by spectators, it is heartening to see Mumbai-based film-makers working hard to create zany entertainers, also boarding the next available flight to South India to clinch the deal/s for the remake rights of Southern blockbusters. The A-list actors, on their part, are equally gung ho for unabashed entertainers, consenting to allocate ample time to movies of this variety. Akshay Kumar, who tasted super success earlier this year with ROWDY RATHORE [besides HOUSEFULL 2 and OMG - OH MY GOD!], comes up with his second masala outing before the year draws to a close, KHILADI 786. What makes KHILADI 786 conspicuous is the
