Sooryavanshi, the fourth movie in Rohit Shetty’s cop universe, was going to hit the theatres in March. Even the trailer launch had us ready for the film. Unfortunately, our wait for the movie became indefinite as the country entered lockdown. Now that we are unlocking gradually as a country, a new release date has been announced for Sooryavanshi. The movie is all set to release this Diwali and we might also see ’83 by Christmas. For everyone like us who still feels dejected that the wait is too long, we have a solution that will make this waiting period a little bearable. Here are nine movies that will bring the same adrenaline rush to you while you wait to go back to the theatres.

The person without whom the list will be incomplete, of course, gets the first mention. Chulbul aka Robin Hood Pandey (Salman Khan) with his moves and one-liners, will surely make you smile while the climax sequence will give you the blood-pumping action you are craving.

Holiday: A Soldier is Never Off Duty

Sooryavanshi is far from the first time Akshay Kumar is playing a man of the law, and there are a few more of his movies on the list as well. It was in Holiday that we saw the Khiladi last giving us some of the action moves that had made him so popular in the 90s.

We did promise that Singham entry and it doesn’t get better than the original. We have seen the movie enough times that we can quote dialogues like “Aata Maaja Satakli” and “Aata Tujhi Baari Aali,” and yet we can’t get enough of this movie.

One of our favourite cop multi-starrers, this movie has Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Aishwariya Rai Bachchan, and Ajay Devgn as a part of its cast. Although the film has a more serious tone comparatively, there are a few light moments here and there.

Abhishek Bachchan as Jai, the cop who was known for his quick thinking supported by the bumbling Ali played by Uday Chopra was the crime-fighting duo we didn’t know we needed. There have been two more movies after this one, but we know in our hearts that the original one was the best.

Force is not a movie known for its laughs but it does offer some fantastic action sequences. It follows an investigation conducted by a cop played by John Abraham against a drug peddler played by Vidyut Jamwal. Both known for their strength and agility packed some of the best action sequences in this movie.

Main Khiladi Tu Anari

Talking about dashing duos and 90s nostalgia, no movie beats the Khiladi and Anari. They churaod our dils (geddit?) with their amazing moves and one-liners.

Hunting down terrorists cannot get cooler than this. These are people who got the car chases and walking away from explosions back in the business, and they looked super cool doing this.
