  • Review: KHILADI 786 Is Akshay Kumar At His Goofy Best

    Akshay Kumar is back with Khiladi 786, his eighth Khiladi (The Player) movie over the past 20-odd years. It’s been a dozen years since he released a film with that title, but he has far from abandoned the character he perfected in the ’90s. The last few years have seen Kumar playing the same over-the-top hero character in masala film after masala film to typically very good box office results. In fact, whenever Kumar tries to stray from the path he built for himself with offbeat films like 8×10 Tasveer, Blue, or Joker, audiences tend to stay away in droves. In a way, even though this film doesn’t have an original bone in its body, I’m kind of glad that he has accepted his role

  • Movie Review: KHILADI 786 by FENIL SETA

    I strongly believe that it’s not the plotline that makes or breaks a film. There are films boasting of skeletal and beaten to death plots but have worked wonders thanks to an effective script and execution. Khiladi 786 sadly isn’t one of those films. When one is attempting to present a fairly predictable story, it’s important that the dialogues and one-liners entice loads of laughter. Unfortunately, that doesn’t happen and what one gets to see are the same old sequences/jokes repackaged to the viewers! The story of the movie: Mansukh (Himesh Reshammiya) is the worthless son of marriage bureau owner Champak Lal (Manoj Joshi) who has unintentionally ruined many marriages fixed by his father. To prove his worth, Mansukh takes up a tough challenge –

  • Reason behind Khiladi 786′s disastrous opening.

    Yesterday early morning i said that Khiladi 786 will not open more than 8+ cr. But those clown fans gave me wired response. Now i am giving few reasons behind this disastrous opening. 1. Akshay Kumar, he is the biggest reason. 5 release a year is just too much for general people. Somehow, people have this idea that he is doing khiladi 786 just only for money. He has zero responsibility toward his fans. 2. Himesh Reshmiya, when people heard that he is the actor, producer, writer and musician of this film, they just turn their back. 3. All expected a Khiladi associated slick action and thriller with lots of turn and twist. But this is just a comeday movie with OTT action.

  • ‘Satyamev Jayate’ vs ‘Talaash’: Should Aamir Khan practise what he preached?

    For close to three months Bollywood actor Aamir Khan made Indians squirm with guilt and denial and forced them to face their dark side over a series of well researched and executed social documentaries on rampant social inequalities. The straight talking, intense host of ‘Satyamev Jayate’ tore apart the moribund traditions that manifested in gender specific selections of foetuses, caste discrimination and abuse of the elderly. He made a nation sit up and take notice of the hypocrisies that its people passed off as convention. He even moved the stone-hearted with stories so grim that they’d make your skin crawl. All the more reason why ‘Talaash’ was such a letdown because its lead protagonist and social torch bearer compromised the stand he took months ago

  • Khiladi 786 First Day Business (8.75cr) & Talaash Down On Second Friday (2.25cr)

    Friday 8th December 2012 10.00 IST Khiladi 786 First Day Business Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network  Khiladi 786 was below the mark on day one collecting around 8.75 crore nett on day one. The film did well in pockets but overall collections were below the mark. The film was totally let down by Delhi and  East Punjab as these areas did awful business. East Punjab at around 62 lakhs is like a washout for such a film and Delhi/UP at 1.6 crore is also very bad despite UP cities having fair collections.

  • Khiladi 786 Has Disappointing Day One

    Friday 8th December 2012 22.00 IST Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network Khildi 786 is set to have a disappointing day one. The film was never likely to have a huge first day but the early first day figures are set to be well below the mark. A Talaash sort of opening or 5-10% less would have been okay but the early figures coming in from Delhi/UP, East Punjab and Rajasthan suggest that even a 10 crore nett total is not on the cards. The figures from other circuits may surprise but its unlikely as if an Akshay Kumar starrer is weak in Delhi and East Punjab where his starrers are normally so strong then other places will find it tough going. A likely scenario is a first
