A brave fighter and a cheap film star!
Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan have made many films together, but none has shown them as collaborative as Yeh Dillagi and Main Khiladi Tu Anari. In this action comedy flick, they play two extremely different characters.
Akshay is a tough policeman and Saif is a popular film star, who, fed up with the spineless romantic heroes he plays on-screen, decides to follow Akshay and learn his mannerisms as a preparation for a future role as policeman. Familiar na! Well it's not an original film, but it's a decent Bollywoodish version which has its own style. The film is light, funny and does not take itself too seriously, and that's why it works.
Akshay, in his own special well-known angry young man style, is nice and well cast. Saif is hilarious and basically plays himself. Shilpa in a double role of a bar dancer and a street dancer is extremely attractive, very sexy and vivacious, and her comic timing is top-notch. This girl is just to die for in "Churake Dil Mera" song. I never really understood why big production houses never bothered to sign her for their films. She was so perky, peppy, beautiful and evidently talented.
Well, watch this decent Bollywood film from the 1990s and buy the DVD is you still haven’t.
