Khiladi 786 is the best time pass you can find this weekend, if you leave your brain at home and just go along for the ride. Action, snappy dialogue, silly dialogue, good acting, so-bad-it's-good-acting, Mithunda and Akshay Kumar, this movie is so packed with masala it could be used to make chaat at Chowpatty. Such a fun movie deserves no less than a super-fun review, and this is what you're reading right now.
First, we give away the LOL-scars, because we have a sneaky feeling Khiladi 786 won't be winning any Oscars, and we think that's wrong. Read on, to find out who got the Chinese Maal Award!
Khiladi 786 soars to staggering heights of dialogues, and then plunges to unexplored depths of rhyme, sometimes within the space of ten seconds. We've ranked the top 5 of each for you. We left out the movie's most popular dialogue, though, the one which talks about 'Bhooton ka sansaar' being something that cannot be seen. Obviously, the movie writers didn't watch 'Talaash' last week. If you remember a dialogue that you particularly loved that's not here, tell us in the comments section.
Khiladi 786 is a movie of mysteries. How do the children of such a multi-racial house look so Punjabi? How do people look exactly the same (down to the same wigs) in 20-years-ago-flashbacks? Why did they not make a shady pun by naming Sattar Singh's family by counting down from 70 rather than counting up from 71? How is this not a Rajinikanth movie? Luckily, all these don't matter because the movie is so mindlessly entertaining.
But one thing you will surely not understand is why the movie was titled 'Khiladi 786'. After all, it has little in common with the other Khiladi movies that Akshay Kumar has churned out over his professional life. Fortunately, the 786 part is easier to explain. Read on to be enlightened.
We hope you enjoyed this review as much as we enjoyed creating it for you. If you have any more jokes about the movie you'd like to share, tell us in the comments section.

Time after time, the RCB batsmen do their best to put a good total on the board. Time after time they succeed, even when two of Gayle, Virat and AbdV fail.
First, Chris Gayle went crazy and scored 175. Then David Miller took a game away from RCB. Then Kieron Pollard suddenly forgot that there are scoring shots other than sixes.
