Explosions, dance, blood: these 3 new Indian action films are many times more brutal and cooler than Hollywood 'bubblegum'

They last 2-3 hours, but they don’t even have time to get bored.

If at the dawn of the era Bollywood was famous for its piercing dramas or low-grade action films that exploded into memes, by the 1920s Indian ‘peasant cinema’ was literally rising from its knees. Every year, a number of remarkable new products are released at the same time, featuring not only dancing with songs, but also hair-raising action.

“RRR: Revolution is roaring nearby”

An epic Indian film set in the 1920s around the struggle for Indian independence from British colonial rule. The plot tells the story of two legendary revolutionaries, Alluri Sita Rama Raju and Komaram Bheem, who joined forces to fight against the British authorities.

One of the reasons why RRR appealed to not only Indian but all audiences is its impressive visual aesthetic. Director SS Rajamouli skillfully combines traditional Indian dance fighting elements with modern technology and expensive production to create a spectacle that is stunning.

“Pathan. A battle with death”

The Bollywood action film tells the story of secret agent Pathan, who returns to work after a long break. The main character, played by Shah Rukh Khan, is confronted by an international terrorist organization bent on destroying the world.

The world audience fell in love with Pathan thanks to its dynamic action sequences and charismatic portrayal of the legendary Shah Rukh Khan, one of the most recognizable stars in Bollywood. The high level of production, special effects and impeccable fight choreography made the film spectacular and attractive to a wide audience, and the plot, based on the fight against international terrorism, resonated with audiences around the world.

“Monkey Man”

A thrilling 2024 action thriller about an ex-con who returns to his hometown in India to confront the corruption and crime plaguing his hometown.

The main character, using martial arts skills and a keen sense of justice, battles criminal elements in an attempt to restore order. The film is an exciting combination of fast-paced action scenes, dramatic twists and spiritual quest, making it unique in its genre.

Monkeyman has been actively compared to John Wick for several reasons. There are plenty of intense and masterfully choreographed fight scenes, and the main character, like Wick, has excellent fighting skills and uses them to fight numerous enemies.

Furthermore, both films are captivating because of their dark yet stylistically striking images and complex, charismatic characters. Monkeyman also explores themes of personal revenge, fighting for justice, and overcoming inner demons, making the plot similar to the story structure of John Wick.
