Bollywood: Main Khiladi Tu Anari
We are straight as a doorbell!
A Bombay police officer seeks revenge when his brother is killed by a powerful underworld figure. Things get complicated when a matinee movie idol begins to tag along the policeman so he can research a movie role. Starring Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan and Shilpa Shetty in pivotal roles, the film is chiefly known for a male friendship that ends up looking like...something else. Just watch this. And Laugh.


This film provides examples of:

  • Foreign Remake: inspired by The Hard Way, starring Michael J. Fox and James Woods.
  • Romance on the Set: Akshay Kumar and Shilpa Shetty are reputed to have started dating during the filming. Then they drifted apart and got back together while making another film together.
  • Roundhouse Kick: Akshay Kumar likes to inflict these on the baddies.
  • Shout-Out: Shilpa's character is named Basanti, after Hema Malini's character in Sholay, and her introductory scene is inspired by Hema's character in Seeta Aur Geeta
  • Slow Motion: heavily abused in the action scenes
  • Unnecessary Combat Roll: Akshay Kumar also does this frequently in the action scenes.
