Mard ko dard nahin hota/ the man who feels no pain

Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota - Best Action Movies on Netflix India

“Mard ko dard nahi hota” is a 2018 Action/comedy which features Abhimanyu Dasani as Surya in the lead role.

The actors Radhika Madan, Gulshan Devaiah, Mahesh Manjrekar, Jimit Trivedi also have crucial roles and have done complete justice to it.

The movie has been written and directed by Vasan Bala and produced by none other than Ronnie Screwvala. “Mard ko dard nahi hota” is a famous dialogue from the 1985 hit movie, “Mard”.

However, the 2018 movie is filled with sarcasm and is taking a jibe at the concept of toxic masculinity which makes men hide their pain because if that is not done, they would be showcasing themselves as weak or incompetent.

The movie begins by showing Surya as a boy who has congenital insensitivity to pain. In simpler words, it is not possible for him to feel pain or hurt. The movie has a very fine balance of comedy and seriousness. The message that the movie tries to convey is very strong and sensitive.

The whole concept of it is very new in a society like ours. However, the movie has been internationally acclaimed and very well received by critics and the audience.

The martial art scenes are beyond perfection and are sure to get you an adrenaline rush now and then. A movie that is filled with action, comedy and conveys a strong message whilst destigmatizing our minds is not something anyone should miss. Do give this ‘coming-of-age’ movie a watch and as we say, do not forget to tune into Netflix!

This 2010 Action movie that has been directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia casts Irrfan Khan in the role of Paan Singh Tomar. It is the story of a young man from a small village who went on to join the Armed forces to earn a living for his family.

Soon, he gets recognized by his coach for his talent in running and is sent to the Sports Academy. He runs several difficult races and goes on to win many Gold medals for the country.

After he retired as a sportsperson, he faces a lot of trouble and realizes that no one is paying him the amount of respect he deserves.

One day when his mother is killed, he loses all his patience and senses and decides to become a dacoit for avenging the death of his mother and solving several other issues that troubled the entire village.

Gabbar: A hero in the name of a villain


How can we talk about action movies and not mention Akshay Kumar? He is a prodigy and has a legacy of his own.

A man that does all his actions by himself and is extremely disciplined is a rare find. Therefore, here is a movie by the ultimate ‘action hero’ of India. Aditya, the role played by Akshay Kumar, is a common man who has his own sweet and small dreams.

He has a loving wife (played by Kareena Kapoor) and is about to start a family of their own at a new place, in a new flat of their own. His wife probably gave him the happiest news of their life when she told them that they were pregnant and expecting their first child together.

However, a disastrous incident takes place and his wife dies. The blame is completely on the administrative system of the city and Aditya is completely shattered.

Now, we all know how difficult it is to get any sort of compensation from these authoritative people, and here all that Aditya was looking for was justice and he would not take anything less. He goes underground and prepares himself for all the challenges that are to come his way.

He comes out to challenge the authorities but at the same time, he has to make sure that his identity remains hidden because otherwise he would be arrested and put behind the bars like any other commoner to try to protest or seek justice.

He can gather a lot of people in his support and works relentlessly to avenge their grieves and get them the kind of justice they deserve whilst saving them from systematic exploitation and injustice. The people in power become alert and try to save themselves but our own Gabbar has traps fixed for everyone and no one except himself can save them from it.

The most fascinating fact about this movie is that it explores and portrays all the different forms of exploitation that we commoners are subjected to every day and how the privileged section of society acts blindly and ignores the suffering of others.

This movie surely makes all of us want a ‘Gabbar’ in the society who would aid in ending systematic corruption and be able to save the lives of thousands of people who die on the roads daily.

Do not fail to watch this movie as the message that has been portrayed here is very important for every one of us to know. Also, if you did not know, ‘Gabbar’ is the name of an iconic villain in the Indian Cinema Industry as the name of the villain in the movie ‘Sholay’ was Gabbar.

Also, does Aditya find love in his life again? We will keep that a mystery along with a lot of other things. So, do not forget to tune into Netflix!

Rowdy Rathore: Good cop vs. Bad Cop

Rowdy Rathore

I guess, as we are talking about the action genre, it would be wrong on our part to talk about Akshay Kumar only once. Rowdy Rathore was released in the year 2012 and took the theatres by storm. It made a total business of rupees 218 crores and that is huge, to say the least.

However, things change when he is posted on duty in a village that is a hub of criminals. He tries his best to cater to his duties and is then attacked by criminals. Cutting it short, there is another man who looks just like Vikram but is a thief himself.

He has a love interest called Paro (played by Sonakshi Sinha). As a part of destiny’s game, a friend of officer Vikram discovers him and narrates the entire story to him. He then takes full responsibility for Vikram’s daughter and assumes the role of an IPS officer.

The other criminals of the town are shocked by his return and cannot comprehend a lot of things. He goes on to fight them and avenge the death of many whilst showing the criminals their place. This movie is filled with entertainment, amazing action scenes, and some emotional scenes.

The fight scenes are going to keep everyone entertained throughout. Needless to mention, the music of the movie is extremely peppy and the dance numbers are a big hit.
