When it comes to mingling of action with romance that's served best with comedy, Akshay Kumar is the star for you. Khiladi Kumar, as adept he is at action, is equally cool as a comedian and super-hot as a lover. He will get you involved, like no other. Second in his Khiladi series was the film Main Khiladi Tu Anari, a 1994 film which was though a remake of Hollywood film, The Hard Way, yet it achieved milestones that have added to the history of Indian cinema.
Here's a short retake on 90s action-comedy Main Khiladi Tu Anari:
The film not only interested the cinephiles in India but the film interested the martial arts critics around the world. Main Khiladi Tu Anari turned out to be first Bollywood film that was reviewed by martial arts critic Albert Valentin who decked it with three and a half stars despite it being a remake. 'As with a Bollywood action film, this is a nicely blended mix of action, comedy, and the mandatory musical sequences that make Bollywood what it is today,' he wrote about the film.
The film was galore with dialogues that turned out to be amongst the memorable Khiladi Kumar dialogues. Such was the craze for the dialogues of the film that the film went on to become the highest grossing film of the year, immortalizing the character of Karan Joglekar.
â€œHume sirf ek take milta hai, sirf ek take ... aur agar uss ek take mein hamse koi galati ho jati hai ... toh maut ke samne zindagi ghutne take deti haiâ€
Watching the choreography in this film might turn out to be a #ROFL moment yet one cannot ignore the melodies that made the 90s peppy for us! Be it the title track or the Chura Ke Dil Mera like stalker number, every song became imbibed in our memory.
Nominated in three categories, the film didn't earn any awards, yet it became synonymous with Shilpa Shetty's entry in the industry. Despite Aag being Shilpa's first film in a leading role, it didn't earn her much appreciation. However, Main Khiladi Tu Anari brought Shilpa under limelight.
