Khiladi 786: THE PROMO!

The Khiladi is back!! Come on, Akki, make me forget all about Joker...

What's funny is that this is being sold as a "continuation" of the Khiladi franchise but if I'm not mistaken, the Khiladi was always kind of a mock turtleneck wearing "cool" dude, not a homespun hero but I could be mistaken.

The Khiladi franchise is the least franchisey franchise I've ever seen. The first film he kicks ass but the plot goes to a weird thriller place. Then MKTA he's a badass cop, but in International Khiladi he is a bad guy who ends up being a good guy because there are worse bad guys than him, basically. It doesn't seem like there's a strong common bond between the films. I definitely would not term them "Indian Bond films" as some people have.

International Khiladi def had turtlenecks. Lots of them.

This trailer looks pretty cool. IMO Tashan was a Khiladi film without the title, but others I'm sure would disagree..

I don't know much, but I've seen a number of the Khiladi movies (Aside from agreeing with both the above comment and the turtlenecks bit as well); so it seemed to me it was a "franchise" because it carried the word "Khiladi" and had Akshay.

Mr. And Mrs. Khiladi was more homespun hero. He played a poor guy who was told by his astrologer he'd be a great king one day, so he never did any work. Except beat people up.

Why would you ask Akki to make you "forget about Joker" when you described it as "delightful" and "a charming little film"?

@stuart Ah... well, it's not exactly "Joker" I want to forget but Akki's horrible reaction to it. It's because I did enjoy it that it kind of offended me that he would abandon it like that. ;P

That's all.

Note from Filmi Girl:

I love Bollywood - and all the ridiculous things that happen in Bollywood - but it doesn't mean that I can't occasionally make fun of various celebrities and films.

If you don't like my sense of humor, please just move on by - Trolls are not appreciated and nasty comments will be deleted.
