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.

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.

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,
