    Tashan | December 11, 2012, 2:32 PM | 27 comments | 0 views

    Havent seen Khiladi 786 yet, but have heard its a good entertainer and there is no doubt it has under performed…now when u do 5 films per year and release them on random release dates…these things do happen that even a good film sometimes doesnt fulfil its potential so nothing to worry but my only regret is that why akshay kumar used the Khiladi title for a which was going to get a sandwiched release….genre is another thing as i have heard it has just 2 action scenes and thats too less for a khiladi film but akshay should used have used this title for an event film atleast not a hurried up 5th release of the year….cos i never wanted the khiladi comeback film to be an average fare…but cant help it now…lets move onto SPECIAL 26

    Now how was 2012 for AKSHAY

    without a doubt it was FANTATSIC and had K786 been a big hit, it could have been historic…esp cos i remember he had a bad 2011 and many people even said he wud be out of top 5 soon but a slap to those detractors, hes among the top 3 overall easily……and for the year hes at the top so far with 3 huge hits….ROWDY RATHORE…HOUSEFULL AND OMG….K786 shud be an average i guess….whereas JOKER was a flop which was disowned by him….overall an awesome comeback year by akki and not to forget his 3 hits are amongst most loved films of the year and werent just hits due to hype or festivals……

    now how his 2013 lineup looks…. (more…)

    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
    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 fact that it marks
    Akshay’s return as ‘Khiladi’ after more
    than a decade. From the immensely
    likeable KHILADI in 1992 to KHILADI 420
    in 2000, Akshay was the face of over half-
    a-dozen ‘Khiladi’ movies during that phase
    — some good, some plain average, some
    terrible movies. The brand ‘Khiladi’ got
    affixed to Akshay in those years.
    KHILADI 786 borrows the ‘Khiladi’ brand,
    but has no correlation with the ‘Khiladi’
    movies attempted earlier. KHILADI 786
    has a skeletal plot, but is padded with
    ingredients that are aimed at the hoi
    polloi: The lead man bashes up 10/15
    goons at one go like we swat mosquitoes,
    punches the wall in anger and the wall
    crumbles, even gulps down a man as if he
    we were consuming a soft drink from a
    straw [yes, you read it right!]. This is a
    mere sample of what you gonna see in
    KHILADI 786. So, be prepared!
    Come to think of it, KHILADI 786 has
    been made with the intention of grabbing
    the attention of the hardcore masses,
    hitting the ton [Rs 100 cr Club] and giving
    the tag of a ‘Hit Machine’ to its lead man,
    Akshay, who has delivered three solid hits
    this year. Ashish R. Mohan, who has been
    an apprentice to Rohit Shetty in the past,
    adapts his mentor’s formula of wooing
    the audience, stretching the term
    unbelievable more than it should. More
    on that later!
    Born to the owner of a marriage bureau
    Champak Lal [Manoj Joshi], Mansukh
    [Himesh Reshammiya] has been a
    complete failure ever since he has grown
    up and tried to help his father in their
    family business. All the alliances he had
    tried to get done have resulted in
    separation even before the marriage took
    To prove his worth to his father, he takes
    up an unusual challenge of getting the
    underworld don, TT Bhai’s [Mithun
    Chakraborty] spoilt sister Indu [Asin]
    married to a cop called Bahattar Singh aka
    Khiladi 786 [Akshay Kumar] in Punjab.
    Mansukh convinces TT Bhai to pretend as
    a cop. Little do they know that Bahattar
    Singh, his father Sattar Singh [Raj Babbar]
    and his uncle Ikhattar Singh [Mukesh
    Rishi] are not cops, but a family of con
    The two families now pretend to be
    policemen in front of each other, but the
    cat is out of the bag soon…
    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…
    * Mithun is supposed to be a dreaded
    don in Mumbai, whose name and pics
    have been splashed in newspapers and TV
    channels since decades [we're even
    shown clips], but how come Raj Babbar,
    Akshay and their family are completely
    clueless of his identity?
    * The track of Asin’s lover [Rahul Singh] is
    a yawn. What was the writer thinking
    while penning those sequences?
    * The climax, with Rajesh Khattar landing
    up at the wedding, Johny Lever unlocking
    himself from a room where he was held
    captive and Mushtaq Khan and Bharti
    suddenly becoming news reporters at the
    wedding mandap, looks too much of a
    cinematic liberty.
    On the plus side, the first-time director
    throws every trick in the book to entice
    the spectator and moves on to the next
    scene, before the viewer gets the feeling
    of deja vu. There’s no denying that you
    actually enjoy certain moments in the
    narrative. The concept of having an
    African and Chinese in the family is so
    funny. Also, the lost-in- mela brother
    surfacing in the end may look ridiculous,
    but makes you smile again. In a nutshell,
    the film caters to the masala loving
    audience and the director has no qualms
    about admitting it.
    Himesh Reshammiya, who enacts a
    pivotal part in the film, belts out super
    numbers here. ‘Balma’, ‘Lonely’, ‘Hookah’
    and ‘Long Drive’ have already made it to
    the music charts and are, without doubt,
    standout tracks. The action sequences are
    very much macho and executed with zest
    and enthusiasm.
    Akshay’s desi punches, raw and masculine
    action and the correct comic timing is
    sure to win a lot of hearts yet again. He is
    in his element, in complete form,
    brimming with charm and confidence.
    He’s the mainstay of the film and lives up
    to the title every bit. Asin is the
    prototypical heroine who has to look her
    best, dance admirably and pair off with
    her on-screen man.
    Himesh Reshammiya does very well,
    while Mithun Chakraborty and Raj Babbar
    add lots of weight to their characters.
    Sanjay Mishra is in his element. Mukesh
    Tiwari impresses. Johny Lever is under-
    utilized. Manoj Joshi, Rajesh Khattar,
    Mukesh Rishi and Gurpreet Guggi are
    perfect. Mushtaq Khan, Bharti and Rahul
    Singh deserved better roles. Claudia
    Ciesla’s item song adds glamour to the
    On the whole, KHILADI 786 is not for
    purists, but for lovers of hardcore masala
    films completely. If zany amusement,
    wacky humor and over the top
    entertainers is what you enjoy, this one’s
    for you. Go, have fun!

  • Khiladi 786 music review
    Tashan | October 30, 2012, 3:00 PM | 5 comments | 0 views

    EXPECTATIONS are obviously huge as the combo of akshay n himesh has given us some very good music in the past be it AITRAAZ,PHIR HERA PHERI,HKDKG,NAMASTE LONDON,WELCOME or the recent OMG.

    so lets see if the album fulfills the huge expectations or not

    BALMA the starting music is wow but the song is blah, stupid lyrics and average singing, to be honest the song is most disappointing song of the album.

    O BAWARIYAN starts of with rap by yo yo singh and then himesh takes over, its a fun n spooofy sort of a song and the singers make it a fun listening, though it could have been a better song. (more…)

    With OMG! Akshay has become one of the few stars to deliver 3 or more BO Hits in a calendar year thrice and among the current stars, hes the only one to do so…Though joker failed but there is no doubt, it has been a landmark year for Akki and with K786 yet to come, this year well may prove to be his best, yeah even better than 2007.

    1. Started off as a side hero and flopped so badly that he started to drink all day n night long.

    2. After getting into a gay romantic-pervert-dirty- illeagal relationship with a famous director (sooraj)who was into small boys, he finally got a big film, though a heroine oriented one.

    3. That one hit was followed by several flops till his Real life Jaaneman the hairless Sooraj casted his toyboy in another woman oriented film HAHK.

    4. The small skinny boy then started copying sanjay dutt, took up drinking, opium and body building due to the frustration of all the gfs leaving him after getting to know that he was also two timing a male.

    5. After few lucky hits thanks to other male and female stars, came flops and many more flops. (more…)

    Well there is no doubt whem it comes to biasedness and exaggerations no one can beat bollywood media and critics and with JOKER, they have proved this yet again, i saw the film and trust me its no way a bad film, infact better than most crap entertainers these days, but the biased critics have no doubt killed and the man( or whatever he is) leading the charge is, the already quite infamous film critic and trade anal-yst TARAN BE-ADARSH, After posting a suspicious sort of review and calling the film a joke and disaster, hes now continously making nasty remarks on the film, maybe he is overjoyed with the low bo performance of JOKER & wants to prove, that hes the Mr\Miss know it all.

    Though the bo result of Joker may show he was right but i would like take to him back in the history N some of the blunders made by this douchebag of the highest order.

    I dont have anything against him at all and i wouldnt have even given a damn whether he liked the film or not, but the way this fool is behaving via his tweets is just Ridiculous and i guess he seriously needs to be shown the mirror so here we go.

    Here are some of the film review ratings by the genius Taran be-adarsh. (more…)
