Episode 120: Khoon Khoon

Khoon Khoon

As a crazed killer blazes a trail of blood through an anxious city, a hardened cop aims to take him down by any means in this remake of Dirty Harry.

IMDb

Imitation is the highest form of flattery. Khoon Khoon is the biggest exception to the previous sentence I have ever encountered. This movie induces flu-like symptoms: The film editing crew constantly fucks with the speed of the film, and makes abrupt cuts. The cameraman is always in a state of panning or zooming; There are no still-shots. The sound is low mumbles interjected with ear-piercing horns. And the dialogue and characters are so out of this world, you'll think you're having a feverish nightmare only to pinch yourself and realize there is still over 100 minutes left of this never-ending sickness. I feel like I am at sea right now just thinking about how woozy this film made me. Physical symptoms aside, Khoon Khoon illustrates how far Bollywood has come. This movie has all the same tropes we enjoyed in Singham but suffers from terrible [Insert any aspect of film here]. Modern Bollywood is king of "so bad its great." How they ever got there from "so bad its death-by-Rohrbachs" is life's greatest mysteries. After the news, we're rambling about Book Club. We are taking next week off giving you two weeks to check out Deathgasm!
