In case you haven't seen any of the unbelievable clips from these Indian action movies, India produces the kind of over-the-top action movies that the U.S. can only dream of nowadays. Their throwback Super Action genre shadows most mainstream properties the U.S. is producing, and these videos are the reason why. From the best HIndi action movies and South Indian action movies, these Bollywood films are full of fighting scenes and non-stop action.
Get ready to have your face blown to pieces with the 11 most ridiculous Bollywood action movie clips of all time... for now.
The Coolest Rescue You Have Ever Seen
This extremely intense fight scene is intensified even greater with all of the added pow! sounds. They happen all the time: when someone throws a punch, when a sword is thrusted, when a cut to a different take is used, when someone takes a breath. There is no end to the use of pow! sounds, and rightly so. I really do believe that more is more in this situation.
The Best Shot in the East
Let me be the first to say that these guys are speed demons. Check out :48 when the hero loses his hat; no biggie though, he's gotta keep going. The action really get's going at 1:49 when the hero goes over a small bump and his bike plops over in the dirt. But the hero manages to roll himself to safety (thank god!)The second half of the clip is a series of bad shooting, when suddenly these bad guys in suits show up and pull on what I believe is supposed to be pantyhose over their heads. What it looks like tough is a silky, burlap sack. It's a wonder that they even shot the hero at all.
Superman Ain't Got Nothin On Mustache
This is probably the best example of how ridiculous this genre is, and why you should share it with your children.
Before you read what happens, watch it in the video embedded here. THIS is what is missing from pretty much every Superman movie ever made. Why has nobody ever done this?
Here's what happens:
This man is shot in the chest, and NOT ONLY does the bullet deflect off his chest with a "ping" sound (scorching his shirt slightly, of course), but it flies back and takes out the man who shot it. Genius.
Also, doesn't this guy kinda remind you of Nick Offerman from "Parks and Recreation?" The mustache is uncanny. Just saying.
It's Like the Matrix, Only More Badass
This one reminds me of the opening scene of the Bejing Olympics, because everyone knows karate.
It's basically a real-life version of that scene in the Matrix Reloaded where Neo takes out like 1,203,984,203,984 Agent Smiths.
It all starts at 1:05 when the bad guy grabs the girl (noticing a theme here?)
What happens next is every guy in the gym is after the bad guy, but, even together, they can't stop him, which is amazing.
They also pull a move which is central to the personality of this piece, and which American movies NEVER do: they film from the POV of a character... and include his hair. Eat THAT, America!
I would think that a guy could at least pull his leg out from behind or something, or maybe they should probably stop taking turns.
Anyone else get the bowling metaphor at 1:46? Deep.
This clip, although it even looks as fake as "pro" wrestling (sorry 60 million people who watch it), is absolutely awesome. Why? Because this character is just that badass and puts Josh Brolin from No Country For Old Men to shame.Reminder to self: get shoes that blow air.
