Indian Superhero Movies
While a lot of these films did not do so well at the box-office, some of them have become iconic in their own rights and given another muscular, sharp-witted, swift superhero for the kids to look up to. Here is a list of the most memorable superheroes in Bollywood!
Best Indian Superhero Movies
Mr India (1987)
Well who can forget Bollywood’s first superhero. Mr. India is to this date regarded as the best superhero movie ever made in this country. Even today the film is loved by old and young alike. It was directed by Shekhar Kapur and had Anil Kapoor, Sridevi and Amrish Puri in the lead roles. The film is also known for it’s iconic dialogue, “Mogambo khush hua.”
The film that almost single-handedly led to the Rajnikanth Jokes goes viral. Other movies too contributed to the ‘Rajni’ phenomenon, but, the technological effects of ‘Robot’, one of the most spoken-about Bollywood superhero movies, brought sci-fi Bollywood movies almost at par with Hollywood. Robot featured around 60 VFX.
It was one movie that crossed all boundaries in terms of its promotions. Shah Rukh Khan, the superhero, was in the lead role, while Arjun Rampal played the role of the super-villain. The film also starred Kareena Kapoor, Akon, and Rajnikanth. Around 1,200 artists worked for two and a half years on the movie’s high-end graphics and visual effects. 2D and 3D versions of Anubhav Sinha’s ‘Ra. One’ became a benchmark for superhero movies in Bollywood. It even achieved several awards for its technological brilliance.
It was one of those Bollywood superhero movies that found its own superhero. Hrithik Roshan‘s avatar was not a copy of a Superman or Spiderman, but an absolute original superhero. Krrish impressed the world with its special effects and Hrithik’s performance was well received by critics.
Bhavesh Joshi Superhero (2018)
The film revolves around a young man who is determined to do the right thing and challenges anyone who resorts to illegal means. When he faces obstacles from the corrupt authorities, he becomes determined to bring justice and undergoes rigorous training. The film stars Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan Kapoor in the lead role. Harsh would surely want to put the failure of his debut film Mirzya behind him.
