Dev Mallya (Suniel Shetty) and Rohan Poddar (Ajay Jadeja) are bossom pals with different natures.

Rohan is a carefree sort of guy while Dev is a serious business tycoon.

Rohan meets Saanjh Mathur (Celina Jaitley), a painter by profession. She falls head over heels in love with him due to his innocent and sweet nature.

Soon his pal, Dev, also falls in love with Saanjh. But he is shocked to find, that an affair already exists between his best friend and the lady.

The film picks up momentum when Rohan is convicted for a murder he did not commit and is sentenced to life imprisonment.

Police commissioner Ranvir Singh begins to investigate and finds that he is innocent.

As the case reopens, evidence reveals that Rohan has been framed.

What happens next is what Khel (meaning the game) is all about.

The initial reels of the film are easy going as we get to witness the romance between Ajay and Celina.

The scenes at the interval point holds much promise for a riveting second half. And this does happen.

But we wish Bollywood directors would pay more attention to the screenplay.

When making thrillers like Khel, there is no need for song sequences as this mellows down the drama on screen.

But having said that, Khel does live up to its name.

The tension filled situations involving all the characters will have you on the edge of your seat.

In this film, we see Suniel Shetty playing a different character. Its nice to see him in a subdued nature as compared to his usual macho rambo self.

Sunny Deol and Ajay Devgan are their usual selves whilst Ajay Jedeja gives a natural performance considering that he is a newcomer.

Overall Khel is good escapist cinema which will appeal to the younger generation.
