Sanket’s Review: “Khiladi 786” is dreadfully boring.
sanket porwal | December 7, 2012, 1:24 PM | 35 comments | 0 views


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 the goons are flying in air and are thrown into cars, and the glasses breaks! The songs spread relief, thanks to some wonderful tunes, but the first half only leaves you with sour taste.

Just as you sit and hope for a better post-intermission, the film approaches with same route and the tone of the film is pretty much straight. The basic plot of the film and some sub-plots are lifted, but the director mauls and messes up the whole story with his shoddy direction. WELCOME is one of the source of the story, but alas, the film is not even half as funny as WELCOME. That overlong climax only increases your exhaustion and brings you across a tasteless twist. Frankly, it’s a dreadfully boring a film.

Reshammiya’s songs are melodious, but the choreography is too outdated. The script and screenplay has nothing to do with the failure of KHILADI 786’s content, because there is hardly any story. Few countable dialogues are good, where the rest of the ones, especially the one-liners are downright lame.

As pointed earlier, KHILADI 786 has many sub-plots and thus somewhere the presence of Akshay Kumar is missing in first half. His is the only decent act in this film filled with two dozen characters. Even a dependent Chakraborthy overdoes his job and his role is just replica of that of his HOUSEFULL 2 character.

Racism is something the director infuses abundantly. The family of our protagonist has all foreign women and all has story behind it, and the worst part is that the director cared to delve even in the details for this plot. How I wonder, he should have cared to delve into his basics and nuances so that he could have made at-least a watch-able film.

Rating- 1.5/5 (Bad)

  7. filmycrazy

    aisa hi hona tha.himesh agar story likhega to pata chalta hai story kaise hoga.akshay ka yehi problem hai.bina dekhkei signature kar deta hai.do mahine se ekhi trailer nam bahattor bas or kuch nehi.sirf ganase thorai picture chalta hai boss.even last couple of dialogue promos were good.if they promoted these dialouges with first trailer then it would atleast get good opening in multiplex also.as a akshay kumar fan i again disappointed like joker.akshay should be selective and should do maximum 2-3 films with good banner in a year.

    1. FS

      “bina dekhkei signature kar deta hai.”
      —- Wo rokda dekh ke film sign karta hai… aakhir usko bhi koi record chahiye na, highest taxpayer ka hi sahi :P”

      1. ank_16n

        but Highest Flop in a year ka Record toh phir bhi nhi todh pata hai…..
        Chahe 5 movies kare ya 10 movies…

        1. diva

          @ank_16n highest flops/disasters in one single year b akshay ke naam he hai like in year 1999

    till first 80% of the time movie was going awesome… carrying all weakness easily..but in the last climax marriage scene … things beacme really montonous and useless..and just left people wanting more …but anyway it was more hilarious and satisfying than ett anytime….

  9. iitianWay

    sanket jee aap bollywood movies reviews band kar dijiye and hollywood ke shuru kar dijiye ..u r graduated too much to handle BW anymore…
    Last read salute to ur reviews. :)

  10. sanket porwal

    Iitiaway- Yes I am graduated enough to dissect khiladi left right center. But my graduation level permits me to rate 3.5 stars to films like Rowdy Rathore, houseful, ready. 3 stars to Bodyguard too.

  11. iitianWay

    1. 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….i did not hear/notice along with others.. this sound.
    2. The jokes are so clumsy and clunked, that they cringe you. ….but anytime better than rohiit setty’s and below the belt ones…
    3. The action scenes are has déjà-vu feeling where all the goons are flying in air and are thrown into cars, and the glasses breaks! ….u did not expect this? or do not fit with movie?

    Star dooes not matter ….what matter is writing

    just read review from fenil seta…and u will see how this kid(Fenil) is exactly fitting for BW reviews…how well he has described the other part of movies …unbiased …specially azad and jailor sub plot…and background score(forget main scores).

    diessection karke beemari theek ki jaatii hain sanket jee..soul nahin pahchaani jaati …for that u have to feel …not think…..which u r missing now a days.

    1. SCHOLES

      I dont think Sanket or anyone deserves similiar kind of comment, and comparing apple and oranges is criminal. Fenil is a professional content writer, if i am not wrong.

      Sanket like many has his own views, and they shud be respected, even if one disagrees.

      and heck i will say that sanket was respectful to write something on akshay’s movies, which are like those rotten ones like khatta meetha, house full part one and housefull part two, any amount of time on them is like waste…. this movies dont deserve the time and energy, and if sanket spent and regretted, alongwith various feedback from social network its a crap 3rd class bhangar kabada movie like other kachra movies called khatta meetha and housefulls.

      U have no right to speak to sanket in this manner.

      Also Fenil’s writing, he is a professional, but remember people like baradwaj rangan toh might not even review this film, and also the fact if fenil mentions one or two incidents of crap movie it becomes unbiased? kuch bhi?

  12. sanket porwal

    Iitianway-

    First thing, Fenil Seta is a better reviewer than me which is very clear and I myself have maintained it. His thoughts are well articulated and he gives much details.

    Second thing, you say stars doesn’t matter. Okay, taken! And what about reviews? At-least they are explained. Go and read my Houseful2, Rowdy Rathore, desi boyz review. I had all praises for those film. So how come I am biased? How?

    And about your oppositions with my review- Yes, I felt the jokes were clunky. And not necessary that mindless jokes should be clunky. They just should be convincing and should have a rhythm with context of the film. K786 is masala. About action, well, I don’t wanna a utter a single word. The climax action sequence was painfully embarrassing.

    And why are subjective opinion being questioned? Tomorrow if I ask you to review RGV ki AAG and If I question your points, will it not be unreasonable on my part? Aren’t opinions meant to be respected?

    You guys needs to relax. Ever since the Khiladi promos has released you are singing “Blockbuster” Bhajan. Now that it is failing, you guys are feeling hurt. Till yesterday everyone were expecting 14-15cr opening, but now that it has opened to such abysmal figure, you guys blame it to the quantity of films. Why? Didn’t you guys know before yesterday that this is Akshay’s 4th release in one single year before predicting 14-15cr?

    Anyways, let the figures talk. The audience will give the certificate to the content of the film. And I feel this film is not crossing even a 60cr mark. But that’s fine! Who doesn’t have a failure!

    You guys just relax.

    WTH is issue here for akshay fans. sanket has watched the film that also FDFS he has given his review .
    he is entitled to his opinion. If he doesn”t like the film he becomes bad reviewer?LOL ,
    akshay fans have started finding fault in the sanket’s review if he has not liked the film WTH or he has to compulsory like the film or agree with your views about akshay film? :D

    can’t he have different views? Everyone is entitled to their opinion and views about any and every film specially poor sanket has watched it FDFS.

    Its so lame these same akshay fans were praising sanket and his reviews of RR OMG and HF2 and what more even Joker review by sanket which had got good rating by him was fully praised and applauded by akshay fans. but now he has not liked akshay fan so he becomes bad reviewer. Lol WTH.

    Sanket you are among best reviewer of NG, In fact i prefer your review rather than fenil’s review bcos his review is more of whole film story teller and its detail rater than a review . so keep reviewing the way you do.

    and akshay fans who disagree with this review, ok disagree and move on.

  14. Tango

    Sanket has every right to like or dislike a film, and no one can question it, NG is all about democracy.

  15. FS

    Sanket agar aage se tumko koi daraya dhamkaya to Aditya007 sirji ko batadena… He’l take care of all these iitians, iiams and iipms…

  16. Nirjhar

    This is uncalled for, why do people expect everyone will enjoy a movie the same way as they do … Sanket has every right to express his opinion whether he likes it or dislikes!

    I read both the reviews of Sanket and Fenil whenever a movie releases (Missing Suprabh though, are you reading Sup?) And both of them are good. As for Fenil, nothing to take away from him but he is a very generous person, and generous to movies. That is why I had previously called him Nikhat Kazmi of our forum. And I like him the way he is.

    Same way Sanket has his own style, and he has grown a reputation for himself. I liked the way he expressed his opinion abt K786 after seeing it FDFS, when we were hearing only blockbuster and 100 crores around the forum. I know one day he may dish out at my fav stars movie, but he has every right to do so if he doesn’t like it at all. Carry on Sanket, we are with you.

  17. iitianWay

    @toall….As sanket has all rights to say things about a movie in a review in public forum..i have all right to review that review..so guys dont pressurize me for not saying a word about a porfessional/best content writer sanket…pls.

    sanket jee regarding movie crossing 60 or not is not matter of people liking or not …wom is all about people going to movie than saying good/bad about movie.. so many movies coming these days and in same genre if people giving this one a miss than understand it…so sanket jee dont compare collection with people’s like or dislike…

    and yes i was all first to view ur reviews ..thats why i said this is the worst review from a professional reviewer point of view…not a general/persoanl viewer’s point of view…suprabh’s review i take them as personal review so i do not and will not comment on his coverage of movie…

    and pls dont feel unhappy with those who unsupports ur review…if u r looking for more in this line of action…just see/ponder on what others says …good critic is worth a ton than flatterer….and surely for this movie review u shud seriously read fenil’s one more time…

    @FS iit iim is not a matter here at all …iitianway is just an id …if u find it long to reply i already said all …u can use @iWay…which will not put pressure on u of carrying iit iim..etc.

    1. dennycrane1

      iway-u should be grateful to sanket that he contributed precious money and help khiladi reach 9 crore or so…

      @sanket-haven’t commented much on ur posts but they are of very high standard..u provide a neutral view to a forum divided by civil war..keep it up..and also if u have been tortured by the movie then watch big boss..entertainment at its best :D

  18. sanket porwal

    Truly overwhelmed by the support guys :) Thank you.

    Iitianway- See, yes you have to right to judge my review, but then calling unbiased wasn’t fair and saying that I am graduated enough to enjoy these movies was simply unacceptable. Because I love this potboiler films. You can go back and check reviews of any masala films (from Ready onwards) ad you will see only praises.

    Second thing, I am no professional reviewer to begin with. Fenil is, and I respect his reviews and also discuss it with him. And no, I don’t wanna pursue in this field. I love Bollywood and I am all game for it. I just express my views about film in bit more contented mannerisms than what other normally does. You guys express your views via comment, I do it through post in bit more details. Professional reviews are of Fenil’s. He cares to mention names of even the crew. Also he mention scenes, which again I do not do.

    And my problem is not that you have found errors in my way of reviewing…not at all! My problem with your comment was that you were arguing on subjective ground which I feel is most vague process.

    And I read every review of Fenil. I also discuss it with him on FB sometimes.

  19. iitianWay

    dennycrane jee ..it is his(or anyones who is in writing professional reviews) best of majboori to watch and review all of them …and u know (or shud know) the reasons very well :)

  20. sanket porwal

    dennycrane- I do watch Big Boss on regular basis. I love this show, and not even once I feel it is scripted. If its is scripted, than all the guys who stays in this house are best actors, even Navjot Singh Siddhu for that matter :D

    I have seen all seasons. Second and sixth are my favorites.

  21. iitianWay

    sanket…cool ..no issue anymore..as u r young, energetic and enthusiastic for things…i wish u all success in whatever u do..but one little lesson/teaching ..never carried away by flatterer more than critics..
    and my whole point of view was not subjective it was technical also – sound thing..and coverage of movie – sub plots.
    @For others i always comments on point of views… never on person or their id’s or on their background…and it shows in my comments.

  22. FS

    iitianway – You can dish out / criticize or blast his review just the way we do with taran or komal but thing is while comparing (which is also fine) his reviews with other members reviews you are stooping down so low in making sarcastic comments to put him down in comparison to other member which you have no right… I actually don’t read many reviews of both Fenil and Sanket except suprabh (coz he is funny and never discloses anything) but that doesn’t mean that Suprabh is better reviewer than the other two.

    You can criticize me or other members who are involved in regular fan wars for fun/masti but not to the members who hardly participate in such dumb acts in months… They deserve their right of respect…

  23. iitianWay

    yaar FS same thing with me happened when i read this review.
    I had( and still have) all respect for sanket …as other members had and have.
    As many said (i rem suprabh) reading sanket’s review to decide upon wathcing a certain one or not…then after this review i could not stop finding things which were not said in correct manner or not covered in totality…as he carries lot of responsibilty after attaining this position…
    just pointed to fellow member’s review … only to say/suggest what other feel missing in his review…he could have covered that giving views on those points but it was just neglected….which he/all shud have takeen in positive manner.

    tere mere aur danish aur anyone else..to chalta hi rahata hain…but he carries more load so he has to be carefull..not casual.

  24. Serenzy

    Agree with IITWay.

    Sanket is Biased and Anti-Akshay!

    :|

    I Always Had a Feeling that He Gets ‘Paid’ by Some Secret Source to Give a Bad Review.. ;)

    He is Emmy Hater too.
    :D

  25. iitianWay

    may be …who knows.. :)
    after watching both movies and reading his review for jthj and k786. :)
    ask him… :)
