Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena (translation: One Player, One Beauty) is a 2005 Indian Hindi crime thriller film directed by Suparn Verma.[1] It is a remake of the 2003 Hollywood crime drama movie Confidence. This movie was another movie in which the father-son duo Fardeen Khan and Feroz Khan had worked. Before this, they had worked in the 2003 movie, Janasheen. This movie was the first lead role for actress Koena Mitra, who was previously seen in small roles.

Plot[edit]

Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena focuses on the duo of Arjun Verma (Fardeen Khan) and his best friend Rohit (Rohit Roy) who con people for a living.

During their latest of escapades, the duo manages to con the rich accountant of a don by the name of Sikander (Gulshan Grover), resulting in them stealing millions of rupees. Soon after, Rohit (Rohit Roy) is killed by Kharbu's men and Arjun escapes to another city. Kharbu manages to track him down and orders him to pay up the stolen sum plus interest or face Sikander's retirement plan.

To get his hands on the millions, Arjun sets up a special team who will help him execute the plan. Also involved in the team is Natasha Kapoor (Koena Mitra), a psychiatrist who ends up being conned by the group but eventually succeeds in seeking revenge. Arjun finds out that Natasha has a sexy body. He eventually succeeds in sleeping with her in a hotel room.

Thrown into this mix is another character by the name of Jehangir Khan (Feroz Khan), who slows down Arjun's plans to get his hands on the money.

But later it is shown that it was the plan of Arjun to seek the revenge of the death of Rohit as Sikander is arrested by police in drugs case. The film ends with arjun going with friends and his lover natasha with the jahangir money.
