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.

5 Himesh songs we love to hate
The Congress Party cannot be happy right now. After contesting in 5 states over the past few weeks, they are winning just one, the smallest of the bunch. In the others, their seat share stands at a pitiful, exam-failing 21%. Heads will roll, strategies will be debated, RaGa will emerge unscathed.
R...Rajkumar is bad. We don’t wish to spend too much time on using words to explain how bad it is because it is movies like this which prove that every second of your life is precious. Spending it on R...Rajkumar is a huge mistake. Right from the inexplicable use of fullstops in the title to the insanity that went into writing the dialogues, R...Rajkumar had us thinking about all the bad things that happened in our lives, and how they actually become good when compared to whatever it was that Prabhu Dheva was attempting.
As the economy keeps inflating, so do Bollywood collections. In no time, they’ll each be making the equivalent of the cost of one onion! We predict that the upcoming Dhoom 3 will make 300 crore. Here’s why:
Following elections in Delhi yesterday, exit polls point to the fact that the Congress is going to lose, and pretty badly. What a surprise. Not. Considering the Congress’ performance over the past few months, we’re sure pretty much ANYONE could have beaten them. Here are a few examples:
It's December, and that means we are in the holy month when Rajinikanth was born. On December 12, the man will turn 63, and his trillions of fans are
This week, we are gearing up to watch Prabhu Dheva’s next outing on the silver screen, ‘R…Rajkumar’ (RR). Starring Shahid Kapoor, who hasn’t exactly had the best career run in the past few years, and Sonakshi Sinha, the film looks promising. Here are a few tips for you to make sure you’re well-prepared for the film:
Yesterday was the season premiere of the fourth edition of Koffee with Karan, and it sure didn’t disappoint. Salman Khan, who was a guest on the first episode, claimed to be a virgin (he may as well have told us that pigs fly – there’s a higher probability of that actually being true)
