Critic reviews and ratings

  • ...is not for purists, but for lovers of hardcore masala films completely. If zany amusement, wacky humor and over the top entertainers is what you enjoy, this one's for you.

  • ...common sense and intelligence, the complete lack of which characterises this mad caper of a film, which you don't notice because, well, you are too busy being bombarded by the dozens of characters, their corny one-liners, the sheer profusion of the truck land aesthetic and your own loud laughter.

  • For those looking for some logic-less laughtime, groovy tunes topped with some todh-podh - this one could bring some action to your weekend.

    Critic rating (?)

  • This is an out-an-out masala potboiler. Yes, it lacks the style and swagger usually associated with Khiladi films but it is as commercial as it gets.

    Critic rating (?)

  • If you are not looking for any logic in plot or genius in dialogues, Khiladi 786 is just for you.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...tries blending Akshay's Rowdy Rathore swagger with his Housefull humour. It ends up in a nowhere-zone in between.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • The anything-goes movie is packed with so many random characters and even more random jokes that moments of inspired humour emerge out of the hodgepodge.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...here was great potential here - the successful Khiladi franchise, the A-list cast, good music and so on. But debut director Ashish R Mohan makes a film that's a diluted, washed-down version of several such films.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is yet another film hated by the intellectuals and lauded by the masses. Watch it if your brain gets too heavy to bring it down to the theater.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Brains be damned, Khiladi 786 will appease the massy lot that digs the over the top tamasha.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...with its pedestrian humour, inane plot, and hammy performances, begs the question: haven't we had enough? How many more times will charismatic actors help stupid films get made?

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • I felt it is the least cheesy movie in the cheesy category this year because it had moments of self-deprecating humour, and the women here are treated nicely. Let’s hope it doesn’t cost them.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • If Rowdy Rathore, Dabbang or Singham is your idea of an entertainer, go for it. At least, these films don’t have any pretensions of being great, or even good, cinema.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Box office figures suggest that many people enjoy this school of cheerfully moronic cinema, but Khiladi 786 really isn’t my idea of a good time.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Watch it only if you are a fan of mindless masala movies.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • I don’t mind mindless comedies. My issue is that this one is predictable and flat and just occasionally amusing.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Ashish R Mohan, making his directorial debut here after assisting Rohit Shetty on the Golmaal series, pops the Dabangg/Singham/Son of Sardar template into the microwave, lets it heat for a bit and serves it up to a public that seemingly can’t get enough of silly action comedies.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • This is a ridiculous film, but at least it’s good for a few laughs

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...has nothing new to offer. It is cut from the same cloth that has yielded many of Akshay Kumar's recent vehicles. These films have sought to cash in on his rough and rowdy screen persona.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is meant only for those viewers who can achieve the medically-physically-and-absolutely-unnecessary feat of leaving their brains at home.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...loud and insufferable.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • In the end, I was left looking at a straw to clutch. Any little thing. I found, dear viewer, none. Not. A. One.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • What does one say of a comedy where you can laugh at precisely one moment?

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • This is a wannabe funny movie, an assault on our collective intellect.
