khiladi

If Superhero Movies were made in India

There’s something about the superheroes and the idea behind their relationship with humans, whether it’s a metaphor for the better part of us, or the more flawed part of ourselves.

Before Bollywood starts adapting the Superhero culture and starts making movies on it, we have picked a few and tried our bit on If Superheroes were made in India.


1.       SpiderMan: Tiger Shroff

The Boy next door turned Superhero is what Tiger Shroff can be best at


2.       Superman: Siddharth Malhotra

Imagine Siddharth Malhotra  in formals and specs, trying to struggle through his mundane life


3.       Batman: Hrithik Roshan

The Jaw line, the voice and the personality. Looks like our Greek God fits into the correct description of The Dark Knight


4.       Green lantern: Akshay Kumar

Bollywood Khiladi can be the perfect replacement of Ryan Reynolds, What say?


5.       Wolverine: Sanjay Dutt

The Bollywood Baddie Sanju Baba is the only Actor who can do justice to Hugh Jackman’s performance


6.       Captain America: Vidyut Jamwal

We have seen him in Force and Commando. No doubt he can pull it off, smoothly (with attitude)


7.       Thor: John Abraham

Give him his Mjolnir (hammer) and you will understand what we are talking about. “You have my word!”


8.       Hulk: Salman Khan

Need we say more? Isn’t it obvious why Bhai is the only one who can do justice to the Angry Hulk?


9.       Iron Man: Shah Rukh Khan

Looks- Check

Personality- Check

Attitude- Double Check 


10.       Loki: Arjun Rampal

Remember Ra.One? Is it just us or even you think he can play a kickass role as Loki?

Recommendations - Hindi Movies (1940′s - 80′s).

@myluckyerror privately asked me for a few movie tips between the 40′s and 60′s. I thought this could be interesting for more people, so I decided to make an offical post out of this. I will add more movies to this list if I find them recommendable after watching.

1940′s

  • Aag (1948)
  • Mahal (1949)
  • Andaz * (1949)
  • Barsaat (1949)

*Andaz is a visually beautiful and fast-paced film with an interesting storyline. But there is a lot of misogyny in the second half. You should be aware of that before watching it.

1950′s

  • Awaara (1951)
  • Albela (1951)
  • Tarana (1951)
  • Baaz (1953)
  • Shree 420 (1955)
  • Pehli Jhalak (1955)
  • Devdas (1955)
  • Mr. and Mrs. ‘55 (1955)*
  • Chori Chori (1956)
  • New Delhi (1956)
  • Jagte Raho (1956)
  • Pyaasa (1957)
  • Ek-Saal (1957)
  • Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi (1958)
  • Kala Pani (1958)
  • Dilli Ka Thug (1958)
  • Parvarish (1958)
  • Dil Deke Dekho (1959)

*Mr. and Mrs. ‘55 was a wonderful movie, that supported strong women and the choices they made independently, until all of that was crushed and turned into misogyny about 30 minutes before the movie ended. Keep that in mind before watching it.

Movies I haven’t seen yet, but definitely want to watch: Anari (1959), Kaagaz Ke Phool (1959), Parineeta (1953), Naya Daur (1957), Miss Mary (1957), Madhumati (1958), Baazi (1951), Amar (1954), Tumsa Nahin Dekha (1957), Taxi Driver (1954), Paying Guest (1957), Mother India (1957)

1960′s

  • Mughal-E-Azam (1960)
  • Barsaat Ki Raat (1960)
  • Chhalia (1960)
  • Jis Desh Men Ganga Behti Hai (1960)
  • Junglee (1961)
  • Half Ticket (1962)*
  • Naughty Boy (1962)
  • Mujhe Jeene Do (1963)
  • Teesri Kasam (1966)
  • Amrapali (1966)
  • Jewel Thief (1967)
  • An Evening in Paris (1967)
  • Padosan (1968)
  • Prince (1969)

*Half Ticket is a bit stupid from time to time, but it is a good and simple comedy with Kishore Kumar and Madhubala. So if you don’t search for an epic movie and just want a little bit of light comedy, this is the one for you.

Movies I haven’t seen yet, but definitely want to watch: Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam (1962), Chaudhvin Ka Chand (1961), Tere Ghar Ke Samne (1963), Teesri Manzil (1966), Aradhana (1969), Woh Kaun Thi? (1964), Gumnaam (1965), Guide (1965), Sangam (1964)

1970′s

  • Mera Naam Joker (1970)
  • Purab Aur Pachhim (1970)
  • Khamoshi (1970)
  • Haré Raama Haré Krishna (1971)
  • Seeta Aur Geeta (1972)
  • Raja Jani (1972)
  • Sholay (1975)
  • Kala Sona (1975)
  • Dharmatma (1975)*
  • Amar Akbar Anthony (1977)
  • Kaala Patthar (1979)

* Dharmatma is Feroz Khan’s remake of the Godfather. Especially the scenes with Hema Malini (who is playing the pendant to Apollonia Vitelli) are visually stunning and include great songs. If you watch Dharmatma as a single project, you probably will like it. If you see it as a remake of the Godfather, you will be extremely disappointed.

Movies I haven’t seen yet, but definitely want to watch:  Pakeezah (1972), Koshish (1972), Majboor (1974), Chupke Chupke (1975), Abhimaan (1973), Kati Patang (1970), Khel Khel Mein (1975), Guddi (1971), Laila Majnu (1979), Kabhie Kabhie (1976), Bhumika (1977), Deewaar (1975),  Shatranj Ke Khiladi (1977)

1980′s

  • Shaan (1980)
  • Umrao Jaan (1981)
  • Kranti (1981)
  • Arth (1982)
  • Ashanti (1982)*
  • Namak Halaal (1982)
  • Razia Sultan (1983)

*Ashanti isn’t necessarily what you would call a great movie, but I enjoyed it anyways. And there are two reasons for it: Shabana Azmi - Zeenat Aman - Parveen Babi in one movie and the chemistry between Parveen Babi and Mithun Chakraborty. So if you like the actors you will probably enjoy it, otherwise there isn’t really a reason to watch.

Movies I haven’t seen yet, but definitely want to watch: Silsila (1981), Mirch Masala (1987), The Burning Train (1980), Nagina (1986),  Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988), Chandni (1989)

so not much has really changed for the khiladi of all ages…

Akshay Kumar has found a formula through the years and he’s stuck to it like a leach. The funny man embraces his crude, slapstick humor and isn’t called the "khiladi" (player) for nothing. He’s also been a pro at spotting which actresses are lucky for him & then proceeds to have a string of 20 movies with them. This has led to the many distinct eras of Akshay including: 

  • The era of Raveena Tandon
  • The era of Kareena Kapoor
  • The era of Priyanka Chopra
  • The era of Katrina Kaif
  • The era of Sonakshi Sinha

(looks like he’s ready for a good chomp in the bottom right clip…)

Which was your favorite era?
