This Week From Past – Main Khiladi Tu Anari

Release Date : 23rd September, 1994


Synopsys : 

“One of the most respected inspectors, Arjun Joglekar (Mukesh Khanna) is killed by drug dealer and gangster Goli (Shakti Kapoor). Mona (Shilpa Shetty), a cabaret singer and Goli’s mistress agrees to testify against Goli and is placed into witness protection by Inspector Karan (Akshay Kumar), Arjun’s younger brother, who aims to fight any injustice and avenge his brother’s murder. When Goli finds out about Mona’s forthcoming testimonial which would expose his real identity, he tracks her down and kills her.

Deepak Kumar (Saif Ali Khan), who is the most romantic actor around, is frustrated with the roles and his being type-caste as a romantic hero. He would like to do something different, and bring some change and excitement to his dull and boring existence. One day in order to overcome his tedious life, he gets drunk and drives around, and is arrested by the police, and held in a cell. This is where he meets with Karan, and is very impressed with his assertiveness, courage, and honesty, and would like to study his behavior so that he can use this as a background for his next movie.

Karan meets Basanti who is an identical duplicate of Mona. He promises to let Deepak hang around him if Deepak can get Basanti to pose as Mona. Deepak trains Basanti, and presents the new “Mona” to Karan. Karan places Basanti at the Moonlight Hotel as an amnesiac Mona, where she can report on Goli’s criminal activities. That’s how they uncover Goli eventually. While Karan and Mona fall in love with each other, Deepak falls is love with Karan’s sister, Shivangi.”

  1. thanks sir to bring amazing film mian khiladi tu anari.i love this movie.please say about ajay great films najayeez,vijaypath and diljale.please soon.

  2. Good, old fashioned masala romp! Akshay-Saif jodi reminded me a bit of AB/Shashi at times. This ofcourse belongs to a sub genre of Akkis “khiladi” films!

  3. main khiladi tu anadi wasnt a hit, just above average. two sangs, chura ke dil mera goriya chali and hum donon hain alag aLAG SAVED THE DAY. Its curious how two of the movies you showcased this week from two different years, saathi and main khiladi tu anadi were in the news for homoerotic content. in fact ashok row kavi reviewd this movie as gay flick. this coupled with some of his comments on sharmila tagore enraged saif ali khan so much that he reached ashok’s place to physically attack him.

    • Main Khiladi Tu Anari was hit (5.5 crore was enough for success unless it was Amitabh film whose prices were above 4 crore).
      All these above average is BOI conspirancy to show SRK in good light.
      Everyone knows Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa was flop (it collected only 1.5 crore) but still BOI gives it modest hit tag.

  4. awesome always thought why BOI have it at semihit but then realised from their old page, that it was also a hit there.

  5. lol BOI has no taken gopi kishen verdict down from hit to above average.

  6. hi , yakuza i have been reading ur blog since long . i just saw u using Nahata’s verdict to give us a picture about the movies of 90’s but i wd like to request u to take verdicts of Taran adarsh – who is by far the best and most experienced trade analyst , if its possible .

  7. i think taran is the best film critic of bollywood
