My views on Akshaye Khanna

First of all, thanks for keeping this site busy with your comments when I was away.

I have watched Tees Maar Khan and my first reaction was WTF? The movie is absolutely horrid. Mainly because Farah Khan couldn't even get the basic cuts and takes right. The most elementary stage direction was non-existent. Acting was horrid from big and small actors except Akshaye and Aryan Babbar.

My first reaction again on seeing Akshaye was to say WTF? But on the whole he rocked. I have always wanted to see him in an abandoned carefree role where he's totally let loose and he delivers that here. He totally rescued the movie.

Incidentally, after watching this movie some friends and I have discussed the idea that Akshaye was brilliant in all his slightly eccentric cameos-- Salaam E Ishq, Aaja Nchle and Tees Maar Khan. He's of course less happy in straight romantic roles like Taal and others. Maybe somebody should write him a full length eccentric role and make a movie out of it. Imagine the sheer joy of having Akshaye of Salaam E Ishq or Aaja Nachle in the whole movie!

There's a disparity between a star and an actor. As a star, we all imagine Akshaye as a charming debonair and sophisticated man. As an actor however, he should be free to do any role, however silly and pull it off. As a star, this is not the movie I'd imagine him in but as an actor, he was top notch and totally brilliant.

WHat you said...you are right!!!
But for how long Akshaye Khanna??? What Akshaye has gain from all that? Simply nothing!!!!
Eveyone keep saying Akshaye is an underated actor or he is huge talent??? What the use???
Everyone praise Akshaye was fantastic in Salaam-e-ishq, Dil Chahta Hai etc...!! Then Farhan Akhtar and Nihkil Advani didnt repeat him????
As a fan dont you dream to see Akshaye Khanna bags awards??? or his films turn to be blockbuster???
The year 2011 is already look ZERO!!!!
If Priyadarshan or Abbas Mustan or Anil Kapoor otherwise Akshaye will be jobless!!!!

its good for akshaye if he dont sign any movie of second role and signed only main role then you see the result.

I think Anurag Kashyap should take advantage of this guy ...

^Yeah...Absolutely... So, must Vishal Bhardwaj, Madhur Bhandakar, Shimit Amin, Rajkumar Hirani,,,,,etc... including Karan Johar, Aditya Chopra, Sanjay Leela Bhansali...etc...

The second KJo/A.Chopra is a joke I guess ? These directors would always give a second-thirdly role to Akshaye Khanna ... 'coz they're poor scriptwriters, and don't add that much of personality apart from the lead ... who is certainly to be SRK.

At least, let's hope that Vishal Bhardwaj, Madhur Bhandakar, Shimit Amin, Rajkumar Hirani & Sanjay Leela Bhansali can extract the best of Akshaye Khanna...
