Khakee movie review

khakee review {4/5} & review rating

Crime movies offer a glimpse into one of the world’s most dangerous and unpredictable jobs. plus, cop movies seem to get the best of most directors, who try to make the movie more realistic and gritty.

If there’s one thing you should do when you watch khakee, it’s this: you should focus your full attention on what’s happening. a momentary lapse in focus or a brief popcorn break at an inopportune moment can deprive you of exciting moments in this densely packed, intricately crafted film.

Rajkumar Santoshi’s latest offering, Khakee, is tough, electrifying and explosive. is one of the most exciting thrillers to hit the screen in recent times.

khakee scores points in almost every level, except later!

From the acidic comments about the corruption in the system, to the tense and fast-paced action sequences, to the twists and turns in the story [the preclimax will catch you off guard], it delivers what it promises.


what began as a routine mission to transport an isi terrorist iqbal ansari [atul kulkarni] from chandangadh to mumbai ended as a nightmare. the first police escort team was ambushed midway, blown to pieces. but a brave officer managed to stop ansari from escaping.

now another team was being sent to do this job from mumbai.

this crucial task was entrusted to dcp anant [amitabh bachchan]. the officer was a failure in the eyes of the establishment and, more importantly, in his own. this was his only chance to prove himself.

clever, brave but rotten to the core, mr. inspector shekhar [akshay kumar], for whom the lines between good and evil, good and evil had been blurred long ago, was also forced to fulfill this mission. he didn’t want to be a part of this mission, but he had no choice.

Third on the list was Sub-Inspector Ashwin [tusshar kapoor], a young officer on his first serious assignment. he was going to find out the hard way that there was a huge difference between the training school and the basic reality of the harsh, corrupt and violent world that exists.

These three officers accompanied by two agents were now tasked with escorting the feared terrorist from Chandangadh to Mumbai. but someone out there didn’t want them to come to mumbai.

A faceless, nameless enemy, who was always one step ahead of them and would do anything to stop them, was proving to be a stumbling block.

the difference between khakee and many other more routine films of the genre begins with the script. Clever, insightful and consistently engaging, Rajkumar Santoshi and Sridhar Raghavan’s screenplay is a treat for anyone who sees film as a medium for both art and entertainment.

the film is full of various twists and turns, but not so many that the plot becomes difficult to digest or follow. the subplots (and there are several) are just as well developed as the main story, and the supporting characters are portrayed as more than just colorful misfits decorating the background.

Khakee takes nearly three hours to tell her story, but you don’t realize how quickly those three hours go by. Santoshi keeps a tight control of each scene. the pace of the film is adequate; It has moments of drama, tension and a lot of action.

one wouldn’t say that khakee is the best script santoshi has tackled, but it would certainly be among the best.

From an execution standpoint, Santoshi is in form once again. various sequences remain in its memory even after the program has finished. instances:

Even after the interval, the film has its share of brilliantly executed sequences. show these:

Another aspect that enhances the film is the dialogue [rajkumar santoshi], which will be greeted with thunderous applause at various points in the film. cinematography [kv anand] is brilliant. the action sequences [tinu verma] are exceptional and one of the main assets of the company.

the music [ram sampath] belongs to the popular genre, but the three songs in the movie ‘wada raha’, ‘dil dooba’ and ‘aisa jadoo’ [lara dutta] seemed forced in the script. if khakee had been a movie without songs, the script would have been even stricter.

santoshi has the ability to draw wonderful performances from the cast. In fact, the leads in his films have given unrivaled performances, as well as being rewarded with the national award [Sunny won the coveted award twice, for Ghayal and Damini, Anil Kapoor for Pukar, and Ajay Devgan for The Legend of Bhagat Singh. ]. In Khakee, Amitabh Bachchan gives one of the best performances of his career. he has some of the toughest scenes in the movie. in fact, a lesser actor would not have done the role justice. But Bachchan’s expressions, voice, and movement bring the character to life. this performance should serve as a textbook for everyone facing the camera in bollywood.

akshay kumar is fantastic. the actor leaves a strong impression despite facing powerful artists. he is amazing in light sequences. without a doubt, this is the best performance of his career.

ajay devgan adds another feather to his cap with a performance that could only have been rehearsed by a master performer. His clashes with Amitabh Bachchan are exemplary.

aishwarya rai lands a role to prove her talent and more than lives up to the hype. tusshar may not have many lines to say, but his presence and expressions register a strong impact. Tanuja is tremendous in a small but significant role. jaya pradha is suitable. atul kulkarni is a complete natural. lara dutta is fantastic in the ‘aisa jadoo’ number.

Overall, Khakee has wonderful performances, an intriguing web-like plot, outstanding action, and expert direction as its trump cards. All of these factors together should make for a rewarding experience for your investors.
