Khakee had too much of expectations with it which is why some are disappointed. But its a fairly well made regular santoshi movie. It's Amitabh's performance and presence what makes Khakee a treat to watch.
Let us examine Amitabh, and attempt to discover what the magic power is that draws millions of men into watching his movies year after year. Can it be that they seek the true man in themselves through him? No, because they'd end up with a crippled man in a wheelchair attempting the stunts. Can it be that they seek the opportunity to sit and meditate on the philosophies of life? No, because they get so swacked on the heroine, they can't even meditate on which end of the body to put into the seat. Can it be that they seek to get away from their wives and kids? You said it!
