Rohit Shetty’s films might have actually highlighted the importance of dramatic action scenes and slow-mo car stunts in Bollywood. Afterall, he’s known for his insanely detailed fight sequences, classic humour, vivid locations and whirling cars in the thin air.
His kinda cinema is not only visually appealing but also highly entertaining! He stepped into Bollywood with a hilarious project and went on to make various genres like thrillers, comedy and drama. But the underlying theme of all his movies is masala and pure magic.
Let’s have a look at Rohit’s extravagant list of hits so far!
The Golmaal franchise is one of the most beloved comedies of Bollywood ever since the first movie released in 2006. With a hefty cast and hysterical comic-timing, Rohit Shetty has given us three crazy movies and the fourth one – Golmaal Again – is soon going to hit the theatres.
They say you need to place your brains aside while watching these films because they’re purely meant for making you laugh. The best part about these films is how they spoof popular culture and sometimes the celebrities in the movie itself.
Golmaal has completed 11 years now and we bet you had no idea that the title was derived from the initials of the four lead characters – Gopal, Laxman, Madhav, and Lucky!
In 2011, when cop-movies were in high demand, Rohit Shetty and Ajay Devgan came up with Singham. Unlike his previous movies, Rohit took charge of a much serious genre, focusing on politics and its corrupt nature.
Singham is the cop that saves the day. But what happens when he finds a corrupt trail within his own system? Every time he tries to do his job, he is overthrown by his seniors. He finally resorts to playing the shrewd game to fight against injustice.
With kickass action scenes and a hint of humour, Singham turned out to be a roaring hit. It’s 2014 sequel Singham Returns hit the 200 crore mark at the box office, proving Rohit Shetty as one of the best directors of Bollywood.
Rohit Shetty hit the jackpot when he bagged King Khan for his rom-com – Chennai Express. While the base story was like every South-Indian movie ever, he added his overdose of spoofs and a strong star-cast to steal the show.
This light-hearted rom-com begins with Rahul’s journey to immerse his grandfather’s ashes but he gets rerouted due to the serious case of Don’s daughter – Meena. Meena is the perfect rebel on the run, while Rahul will rather be anywhere but Komban village. What happens next is for you to find out!
We love how SRK pokes fun at his claim to fame DDLJ scenes and dialogues and advertises his Nokia phone – a classic Rohit Shetty knack.
In 2015, Rohit Shetty recreated the golden magic of Shahrukh and Kajol’s chemistry with Dilwale. It was one of the most awaited films of the year because the duo was about to sizzle the screen after five long years.
The movie is a sing-song version of Romeo & Juliet where two lovers part ways due to the family rivalry, but there’s a major twist in the tale that turns a few tables, or in this case – cars. Get set for an intense crime film with action-packed drama and slow-mo romantic scenes.
Did you know? The famous song Gerua is shot at some of the most magnificent spots across the world and its picturization is such that all the backdrops seem too good to be true.
Most of us watch movies merely for the sake of getting away from reality, and Rohit Shetty’s movies help us do just that.
