Akshay, Salman, Shah Rukh, Ajay promise an ‘action-packed’ 2021

Action films have always delivered and Bollywood has an impressive line-up ready to put the COVID-19 blues behind.

It was in the 1970s when “action films” started ruling the roost. What started with the likes of Dharmendra, Vinod Khanna and Shatrughan Sinha went full throttle with “angry young man” Amitabh Bachchan bursting onto the scene. The genre ruled well into the 80s with Big B doing what he does best, as Anil Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty, Sanjay Dutt, Sunny Deol and Jackie Shroff joined the party. The three Khans announced their arrival in the 90s when romance bloomed on the screen but Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn and Suniel Shetty kept action alive.

As the third decade of the new millennium dawns, action films are set to take the centre stage and with a bang, more so as theatres look at resurgence and cinema-goers look to put lockdown and coronavirus blues behind them.

All eyes are on Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn, John Abraham and South entrant Yash to deliver at the box office with their big-budget action-packed extravaganzas and bring back the audience.

Plans are afoot for the releases of Sooryavanshi, Radhe, Pathan, RRR, Satyameva Jayate 2 and K.G.F Chapter 2, to name a few.

Each of these films promises a heavy dose of action entertainment. Sooryavanshi and Radhe are cop dramas, Pathan steps into the spy zone, RRR is a period flick, Satyameva Jayate is grass-root masala and KGF 2 opens another chapter about one man taking on the coal mafia. At least, Rs 1,000 crore is riding on these films.
