Bollywood 'Khiladi 786' review: Akshay does a Salman Khan, but doesn't pull it off

A typical masala movie, yet it doesn't quite pack a punch

Ray-Ban Aviators. Check. Police uniform. Check. Handsome hero with super-hero powers. Check. Cheeky dialogues. Check. Pretty lover girl. Check. Handful of quirky supporting cast. Check. Item girl. Check.

'Khiladi 786' ticks all the prerequisites for a formulaic, Bollywood masala movie, yet it doesn't quite pack a punch.

And that's probably because the industry is already populated with many such uniformed heroes, and the audience don't have the appetite for any more.

From Salman Khan's Chulbul Pandey to Ajay Devgn's Singham, to Akshay Kumar's Rowdy Rathore, there's a sudden overcrowding that could in turn damage the flamboyant Bollywood cop-kitsch.

This might be Ashish R Mohan's first as a director, yet his influences from working as an assistant director on the set of Rohit Shetty's 'Golmaal' series appears unmistakable.

From manic comic situation that rely on buffoonery, there's very little tact or intelligence that Ashish deploys to tell the story.

Bahattar Singh is a robust Punjabi lad, who dresses up as a cop and flexes his magical muscles, to help the real uniformed clan to work efficiently.

It's a sort of charity that he, and his boisterous family of dad and uncle, indulge in.

But despite flaunting such incredible power, no girl is willing to marry him. In fact, the men's notoriety explains their global weddings, with Bahattar's granny being South African, mother a Canadian and aunt a Chinese.

"No Indian girl will ever marry into our family," laments the father.

It's this desire that is fulfilled by struggling wedding planner Mansukh Desai, who is out to redeem himself after his father throws him out of his house, and his business, for ruining his chances at hitting the 500-wedding record.

His cupid skills are put to test, as he invests his everything to connect Bahattar with an equally eccentric Indu Tendulkar, who is adamant to scare away any man other than her jailed lover.

Her brother, an infamous don Tatya Tukaram Tendulkar aka TTT, is insistent about giving Indu a "decent" life by finding a groom from a respectable family.

There unfolds a string of lies and complicated cover-ups that eventually lead into a dull, costume party.

The story written by Himmesh Reshammiya, who initially branched out from music direction to acting, is complicated and unoriginal. It's intriguing how he refuses to give despite showing little or no talent for the unmusical.

He even writes himself a part, a supporting one thankfully, but one that he overplays to shocking levels.

Akshay Kumar's versatility remains unquestioned. He charms, grins, frowns, angers, romances, fights and much more, all in the span of two-hours-and-twenty-minutes.

One minute he's bashing the baddies at record speed, and the next he's swaying to peppy Punjabi tracks. His Bahattar is an unmistakable all-rounder, like all his peers.

If there's anything that's unique, it's his incredible speed, which we are told, enough number of times, is a mystery, much like "ghosts" and "true love."

Asin remains dolled up impressively. She does attempt to do more, but the script doesn't quite allow it.

Among the veterans, Mithun Chakraborty and Raj Babbar do their bit, but never quite excite us with their flair.

Lines by writer Bunty Rathore are shockingly unfunny, which I'd like to validate with an example.

When a senior cop insists that Bahattar show him "papers" for the release of a prisoner, he rushes out and brings back a newspaper.

"I said paper, not newspaper," he shouts, to which Bahattar replies, "It's the Punjab Daily, that's what I read. If you want the Maharastra Times then please go get it yourself."

Minutes later, he shoves a gun into the prisoner's mouth and says, "Don't mistake it for a toothbrush and chew on it."

And like most Bollywood movie 'franchises', this movie, despite a borrowed 'Khiladi' title, has no reference to any of its earlier films in the 12-years since its beginning.

Understandable that 'Khiladi 786' is trying to play to the galleries, but unfortunately it tries way too hard.

And, considering there've been far too many perky cops in the past, this "cop" just doesn't make the cut.

Khiladi 786 & Dabangg 2 - Bollywood Box Office Saving Grace for Last Quarter of 2012.

With only Khiladi 786 and Dabangg 2 left in the last quarter of 2012, will these two films be the saving grace of Bollywood Box Office. Yes, out of 5 major releases of last quarter Jab Tak Hai JaanSon of Sardaar and Talaash verdict is more or less out. With JTHJ being a Super Hit and SOS being a Hit, it is not doubt that these films have grossed 100 crore nett mark, but one would have expected much more than that. With Talaash verdict is awaited, still it will hover around the 100 crore nett mark in its lifetime. Nowadays 100 crore is the minimum benchmark for big star cast films. Even niche film like Barfi! and OMG has collected huge. One would have safely said that these big films should easily cross 100 crore mark at the Indian Box Office.
With earlier release of the year like Ek Tha Tiger, Rowdy Rathore and Agneepath already big grosser of the year one would have expected that last quarter films would have given run for money to these movies. Anyways all is not lost. With Khiladi 786 and Dabangg 2 still to be released, let's be optimist. Reason, these films stars - one being the champion of crowd pullers to the theaters and another having an outstanding year at the box office in 2012.

Akshay Kumar is having one of the best year in his life. Despite giving a debacle in Joker no one can deny that Akshay is having a rollicking year and much credit should be given to him. Rowdy Rathore being the second biggest grosser of the year and biggest grosser ever of Akshay Kumar. It is an universal Hit with Blockbuster status in India. His other two releases Housefull 2 and Oh My God are mega Hit. If K786 repeat the Hit status for Akshay then 2012 might be the best year of Akshay in his film career.

Salman Khan the name is itself a brand today. When all other big stars are struggling to get past 100 crore nett mark, his film are setting records on how fast it can touch 100 crore. With ETT already neared 200 crore nett mark, it can be safely said that Dabangg 2 should easily cross 100 crore nett mark and how much after that is the main question. Dabangg 2 releasing in a normal weekend with only 25th as Holiday, still anything less than 130-140 crore mark will be under performing tag by Salman's standard.

Hence, inspite of knowing that, 'All that glitters are not gold', still we can expect Gold Rush at Box Office with these last two big films (K786 & Dabangg 2) set to release.

Khiladi 786 Advance Booking Report.

Khiladi 786 Advance Booking started all over India in almost all centers. Still few percentage of cinemas have started advance booking from today only. As per early trend the advance booking report is slow for K786. Around 15-20% tickets are sold out on average. Few high-end plexes have recorded 50-60% advance booking, but the figures are very few. 

K786 is masala entertainer and such film generally don't depend much on advance booking. Previous example being Rowdy Rathore and Bol Bachchan which registered average to poor advance booking, but registered huge opening at the box office. As for the film buzz, it istremendous, music is super hit and it will start well no matter what happens to the content, at least for first weekend.
