Here's a list of curated new-age action-hero movies worth your time.
1.Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota – Netflix
Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota is the story of a man who has a rare health condition that prevents him from feeling pain. This is all he needs to take on his foes in this super-fun movie that features Abhimanyu Dassani in the lead role alongside Radhika Madan. Both actors excel in action sequences, so do not miss this one.
Vikram – DisneyPlus Hotstar
Kamal Haasan needs no introduction and neither does his last film, Vikram. This superhit film has the actor – who is 68 years old – knocking out the bad guys in style. The film has already attained cult status, so we think it is time to watch (or rewatch) the film.
War – Amazon Prime Video
This 2019 film had the audience's love in abundance. The box office numbers are proof. But what else can you expect from an action film that features Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff? It would suffice to say they fight as gracefully as they dance.
Minnal Murali – Netflix
This may be a superhero film but everything about this action movie is original. From the superhero's origin story to the villain, this Malayalam film is proof that sleek action does not need big budgets.
Fan – YouTube, Apple TV
Shah Rukh Khan's action-thriller film features him in a double role – as a superstar and as the superstar's unhinged fan. Watch it for SRK's earnest performance and carefully crafted action scenes.
