This Friday sees the release of Rocky Handsome and Batman V Superman, two action blockbusters that couldn’t be any manlier if they tried. So this means a look back at five of the best macho movies from Bollywood that you can enjoy over the weekend.
Shootout At Lokhandwala / Shootout At Wadala
The real-life inspired Shootout series has seen some of Bollywood biggest action stars from Amitabh to John Abraham. They’re the perfect mixture of gangsters, guns and entertainment.
Yeah, we’re going with the second film in the Dhoom series because it is easily the best. It’s got great stunts and set-pieces, hot babes, and a fantastic villain in Hrithik Roshan (sorry Aamir Khan).
While Amitabh Bachchan’s original remains a classic, Farhan Akhtar’s remake starring King Khan as the legendary title character ups the cool content in a major way. This is a stylish yet dangerous Don, the music is great and the twisty noir-ish plot is a delight.
Akshay Kumar is the original Khiladi, you can’t make a list of action films without him! This funky south remake directed by none other than Prabhudeva is one of his best in recent years. A total masala entertainer!
Like Akki, this list would be incomplete without Salman Bhai. After all, he’s the ultimate man for millions of Indians! And Inspector Chulbul Pandey is one of his most iconic roles. This one is a fun ride we can never get enough of. A modern classic!
