What are the best Bollywood action movies?

J. Sta. Ana - Contributor

When we think of Bollywood movies, we often picture a scene of actors wearing colorful costumes dancing to upbeat songs and catchy tunes. It seems as if the audience has already attached "Bollywood" to "musical". But, the Hindi cinematic landscape offers a wide range of genre - from a depiction of social issues to a classic romantic comedy-drama. Aside from their vigorous and musical skits, the Bombay cinema also covers heart-pounding action films. So, if you want to wander from Hollywood films to unexpected Hindi cinema twists, it's time for you to explore these Bollywood action movies.

Bollywood didn't fail to produce exceptional quality films over the years, not to mention talented artists as well. Just before 2019 ends, Yash Raj Films released a record-breaking action film featuring the dynamic duo, Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. The hit action movie, War, was so appealing that it was dubbed as the "Mission Impossible" version of Bollywood. True enough, it did take inspiration of some iconic Tom Cruise scenes from his M.I series. Looks like Siddharth Anand, the director of War, is not subtle about his fondness of John Woo's masterpiece. Following this promising movie, we also listed other box-office hits that can please your thirst for action and suspense. Feel free to browse through our Bollywood action films and don't forget to comment if we missed one of your favorites. If you want another film with a combination of action and thrill, you can also watch Mardaani 2 online as well as watch Dabangg 3 online. Both movies are guaranteed to be action-packed and star-studded! Enjoy bingeing and get ready for an action-packed adventure with our list of the best websites to watch Indian movies here!
