OK, today's movie pick is little known International Khiladi. So full of delicious cheese!

This is in the 'Koyla' territory for me. By that I mean it has hunky man!suffering and is overall of the so-bad-it's-good quality. In fact, it just might top Koyla because I don't remember Koyla having a climactc fight scene with a fake plane and people hanging in-out in a delightfully MST3K manner....Nah, mulleted SRK still trumps but this comes close.

International Khiladi is Bollywood attempting Rashomon. Sorta. But getting sidetracked by Twinkle Khanna's scary hair, and dancing in Canada, and lady wrestlers, and the weepiest mob boss the world has ever seen.

As the movie opens, our Noble Heroine, portrayed by 'Stanislavski-level-imitation-of-a-block-of-wood' Twinkle Khanna is on a witness stand. Akshay Kumar is in the dock (oh baby, what could I do with Akshay Kumar and handcuffs. Ahem.) Akshay Kumar is the 'International Khiladi' of the title, a tough mob boss who must have been awarded this title on the basis of all the amazing amount of weeping he does in this flick. Seriously. People who complain about the rivers of tears produced by SRK in Karan Johar movies have not seen IK.

Twinkle Khanna, who we later find out is a journalist with a recently diseased beloved brother, is accusing Akshay Kumar of rape. In some detail. Akshay, surprisingly, doesn't deny anything but sort of stares stonily ahead, probably contemplating his paycheck. Of course, since Akshay is the hero (I almost typed the 'heroine' because of the weeping) and Twinkle the heroine, we know that there must be Something More Between Them, and that he is unlikely to have raped her as even in a Bollywood movie, his being the hero trumps his being the mob boss.

The rest of the write-up. Spoilery, but come on, you'd watch this for the plot? )
