4.0 out of 5 stars An Action Thriller Drama 8 May 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Director Raj Kumar Santoshi's " Khakhi" is truly a tribute to the Indian police force. Though it has its flaws, one can see that Bollywood can still produce quality cinema.
Khakee is the story of Anant Srivastava (Amitabh Bachchan), a man who has accomplished precious little in his career as an officer, regardless of various promotions. He, and his chosen team are to go to Chandangarh and bring terrorist Dr. Iqbal Ansari (Atul Kulkarni) to a Mumbai court. Amongst his squad are Sr. Inspector Shekhar (Akshay Kumar), who is the police force¢¥s bad boy, and Sub-Inspector Ashwin Gupte (Tusshar Kapoor) a rookie fresh out of training on his first mission.
With two constables, the squad goes to Chandangarh, where they meet Mahalaxmi (Aishwarya Rai) who is the only one who recognizes the face of the terrorist ring¢¥s leader, Angre (Ajay Devgan), who is doing all in his power to prevent Ansari¢¥s appearance in court. Does the squad succeed in taking Ansari to court? Is Angre defeated? The rest is a roller coaster ride of twists and turns that answers these questions and always manages to catch the viewer unaware.
Khakee is not to be missed! Simply put, it is one of the best movies in recent times.

4.0 out of 5 stars Riveting... 18 Mar 2005
Format:DVD
First things first. This is by no means a typical Bollywood cop drama. And that makes a refreshing change. Raj Kumar Santoshi has given us some gems in the past - Ghayal, Damini, Pukar, The Legend of Bhagat Singh to name a few. But this by far is his best flick to date.
DCP Anant Shrivastav (Bachchan) is assigned the already foiled mission of transferring an alleged terrorist, Iqbal Ansari, (Atul Kulkarni) from Chandangadh to Mumbai. He assembles a diverse group of cops to aid him with a task that is both dangerous and significant to him in that it his last chance to prove his credentials in his otherwise stagnant career. Joining him is Shekhar Sachdev (Akshay Kumar), a disillusioned, corrupt police officer, Ashwin Gupta (Tusshar Kapoor), a naïve, honest new recruit out to make a difference, a couple of other sidekicks and a key witness, Mahalakshmi (Rai).
The transfer begins, but seems to be thwarted at every stage by ex cop turned baddie (Devgan in a role that will give the regular Bollywood villains a run for their money!). It soon becomes obvious that an insider is his accomplice ensuring he is always a step ahead of Shrivastav and his all important mission. But the question is, just which one of them is doing the dirty on them?
That, in a nutshell is the simple premise on which Khakee runs. Any other director would have made a big mess of it, but with Santoshi at the helm of affairs, the way in which the plot unfolds twist after shocking twist (especially the one in the climax) keeps the audience glued to their seats.
The cinematography is mind-blowing, the action sequences - terrific, dialogues are praise worthy, the script and screenplay are spot on (barring a few minor cinematic liberties which are forgiven going by past Bollywood standards!).

4.0 out of 5 stars long but fun action flick 14 Aug 2004
By Roland E. Zwick - Published on Amazon.com
Audiences in India must have amazing attention spans if "Khakee" is any indication of what passes for "normal" in their cinema-going experience. This political action drama runs 180 minutes, a playing time usually reserved in the States for sweeping historical epics or theater-based musical comedies. Yet, despite its enormous length, "Khakee" is very rarely boring, mainly due to its no-holds-barred, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink shamelessness. Writer/director Rajkumar Santhosi throws just about every element he can get his hands on into the mix: car chases, hand-to-hand combat scenes, heroes who are dripping with nobility, a villain who wears sunglasses even at night and seems to be lurking around literally every corner, a pair of star-crossed lovers, innumerable plot twists, corrupt government officials, even a couple of delightful but utterly irrelevant fantasy musical sequences in the best Bollywood tradition. None of this really should work but somehow it all does. Credit the filmmakers for providing the high energy and exuberant spirit necessary to pull it off.

The plot seems as if it could have been ripped right out of today's headlines, what with the government bringing together a team of five crack policemen to escort a recently arrested Pakistani terrorist safely into the hands of justice so that he can stand trial for helping to incite a riot in an Indian city. Or is it really the government officials who are corrupt and the "terrorist" an innocent victim of their grand conspiracy? Despite the apparent topicality of the subject matter, "Khakee" is really nothing more than an enjoyably over-the-top, entertaining action picture with a surprising amount of humor and warmth to counterbalance the violence. The five policemen have an almost Keystone Kops quality to them at times, making them very likable from the outset. Santhosi also allows us just enough of a glimpse into their personal and family lives to make the characters believable and interesting. It doesn't hurt that the leader of the team is actually a craggy-faced, pot-bellied middle-aged man, far from the typical Hollywood action hero. As a result of this bond established between them and the audience, the trite and corny speeches the characters deliver extolling the virtues of dedication and honor are far more stirring and effective than they have any real right to be.

"Khakee" has an almost effortless quality to it that makes it preferable to most similar films made here in the United States. There seems so little sweating and straining going on here. While the editing is often very flashy and sophisticated, the somewhat muddy photography and almost laughably bad sound effects give the film a charming, homespun quality that makes it especially endearing. The movie never stops moving, which is one of the reasons why one hardly notices its three-hour running time.

"Khakee" is no masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination, but it knows what it wants to do and succeeds in doing it very well indeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars hot diggity, this one's dang exciting! 31 Mar 2006
By H. Bala - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This offering from India is just about as must-see as you can get if you're an action-thriller movie buff. Yup, it's three hours long (I can already picture the short-attention-span generation cringing) but, Holy Tamale, it is worth it! This flick is laden with scenes of mayhem, carnage, police hijinks and political intrigue; strewn with random acts of bravery, sweet moments of newly-found romance and calls to honor and duty; and, yes, every now and then, a Bollywood song & dance number will ambush you, dear viewer. Even the few "slow" scenes (ie: scenes where no bullets are currently flying) are well done, serving the purpose of generating and then building up tension until the next time all heck breaks loose again (which is never too far off).

Now the plot: DCP Anant Srivastav (Amitabh Bachchan, whose face looks like an eroded cliffside) is a police officer in the late stages of his career who is handpicked to head a team escorting a hardened terrorist from Chadanghbad to Mumbai, wherein said terrorist will stand trial. Srivastav undertakes this mission in an attempt to salvage what he feels has thus far been a failed career. Assigned with him are two officers: Senior Inspector Shekhar Sachdev (Akshay Kumar), a disillusioned yet savvy, street-smart officer not averse to taking bribes; and Sub Inspector Ashwin Gupte (Tushaar Kapoor), a young idealistic rookie, very much averse to taking bribes. These three and a few additional policemen undertake a journey that will tax them to the utmost, make them doubt and challenge each other, as well as force each one to face his own personal inner demons. Needless to say, not everyone makes it to the end.

Part of what drives this rollicking movie is the quality of the acting herein. The cast does a very commendable job in the midst of all the gunfire, car chases, one-on-one punchfests... Two actors that particularly stand out are Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar. This duo, Bachchan as the elderly leader (reeking of that certain "My God, we must do the right thing" cologne) bent on seeking justice and Kumar as the amoral officer ("so tell me again why we must do the right thing, 'cause, you know, they're really shooting at us now") more intent on survival than idealogy, chew the scenery with crackling gusto. These cats were emoting! Ajay Devgan as the omnipresent, ever-smoking, sunglassed villain is cloaked with an adequate aura of menace. Aishwarya Rai, I feel, is underused (this is, after all, an action guy's movie) but, nevertheless, does credit to her underdeveloped role and makes the most of it. Yeah, the dialogue is oft times too melodramatic but because the characters are given time for their backstories to be developed, there's an engaging sense of heft and weight to them that garners empathy from the viewer, to the point where the actors' frequent over-the-top lines become somehow believable. Trust me, three invested hours will make you feel for and with the characters.

If you get a chance, check this one out. Gawd, the twists and turns in this one! Khakee is a fairly slick, glossy thriller, with great production values (although, every now and then, they do go overboard with some garish fight scene sound effects, reminiscent of various 1970s kung-fu flicks). Else, this film looks very good. I liken it to a cinematic boulder rolling down a hill, inexorably gaining more and more momentum until it slams to an explosive, crashing halt. It's must-see, baby.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good action movie! 18 April 2011
By Z.B - Published on Amazon.com
Khakee is a good action movie...It is about Dr. Iqbal Ansari who has been accused of being a terrorist, but he is not a terrorist...Some of the police are involved with some terrorist gangs who have put weapons in ansari's house, and Ansari who is innocent has been accused of being a terrorist..

Amitabh performs well throughout the movie...Akshay performs brilliantly as well...he is good in some comedy scenes...Ajay performs really well in a negative role...These type of roles suit Ajay perfectly..tusshar acts well..aishwarya is just okay..She doesn't perform that well...

Overall, khakee is a must watch as it contains mostly everything: action, comedy, romance, musical...

Boy we need movies like this in the U.S. Super honest police commander and friends take on a corrupt system defying all odds. Plenty of action and not a boring moment despite its length. The big surprise is Aishwarya Rai plays a bad girl! If you liked Sholay you will like this. While this is a serious action drama somehow they are able to incorporate some nice musical numbers and comedy and it works,
