Salman Khan films you must watch if you are a true fan!
May it be the hit and run case of 1992 or his controversial relationships, Salman Khan was always on the spotlight. In his decades long of career he sure did carve a niche for himself in the tinsel town with several of his films setting the cash registers. Here’s a look at some of the best Salman Khan films that you must watch if you are a true fan!
1.Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015)
This one is my personal favorite. Directed by Kabir Khan the film is loosely inspired from the real life story of Geet, a mute Pakistani girl who lost herself in India. Salman Khan plays Pawan, an ardent devotee of Lord Hanuman. One fine day he finds Munni and promises to return her to her parents in Pakistan. This was one of those roles which was particularly carved for Salman. He plays Pawan with such innocence that we instantly fall in love with him. Also, the film stands out from his filmography as a fresh and thoroughly entertaining film.
Salman Khan shines as an aspiring wrestler in Sultan. He plays this one rather effortlessly. Hats off to his amazing body transformation. The movie opens with a middle-aged and unhealthy Sultan living a regular lowly life. The same Sultan who was once an Olympic medallist. What led to his devastating transition? What went wrong in his life? That is what the whole film is about. Paired with Anushka Sharma for the first time, Salman does an impressive job in Sultan.
3. Ek Tha Tiger (2012)
The Kabir-Salman director actor combo is worth all the money. Ek Tha Tiger is about a RAW agent who is tasked with recovering confidential information before it is gained by Pakistan. However, his plans see no success because he falls in love with a Zoya (Katrina Khaif). The film is funny, thrilling and a complete entertainer, a ravishing spy thriller I would say.
4. Kick (2014)
Kick is the official remake of the 2009 Telugu film of the same name. It is an action-heist film with Nawazuddin Siddique as the antagonist. It’s interesting to see Nawaz switch to the mainstream after having a stint in artistic cinema. The film has some peppy songs that will tempt you to groove to the tunes. Salman plays Devi Lal Singh alias Devi, a man on a mission to loot money from the corrupt (for good reasons though!). Jacqueline plays a convincing female lead.
5. Wanted (2009)
Here’s an interesting fact : Did you know that Wanted was certified as A for depiction of violence? This was Salman’s second film to be A rated after Garv-Pride and Honor. Coming back to Wanted, the film does total justice to its original version in Tamil. The film gave Salman a career boost after having a dry spell at the theatres for a while. Since then there has been no turning back.
6. Bodyguard (2011)
Yet another remake, but rather an interesting one. Bodyguard stars Salman along with Kareena Kapoor Khan and was a Bollywood remake of a Malayalam film with the same name. Salman plays Lovely Singh, bodyguard to Divya (Kareena Kapoor). Cupid plays its magic and they fall in love, but not that easy. Bodyguard is a fun romantic comedy that serves as a perfect one-time watch.
7. Ready (2011)
Ready may not be Salman Khan’s best film but it sure is funny and entertaining. If you are someone who is in for just laughs, then this one is for you. The film has Asin Thottumkal as the leading lady and shake pelvis with Salman.
Best from the 90s!!
8. Hum Apke Hain Koun (1994)
This 1994 Sooraj Barjatya film is a celebration of Indian Wedding traditions. It made a lasting impact on wedding celebrations in India, which often include songs and games from the film.Hum Apke Hain Kaun ended up being the highest grossing film that year. The film stars Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit in the lead roles.
9. Andaz Apna Apna (1994)
Andaz Apna Apna is a timeless comedy classic starring Aamir Khan and Salman Khan. The duo offer a charming chemistry and win our hearts with their portrayal of two carefree daydreamers. Amar (Aamir Khan) and Prem (Salman Khan) are two best friends who plan on getting rich by marrying two rich girls. How they manage between love and their ambitions is what the film is all about.
10. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1997)
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam has Salman Khan, Aishwariya Rai and Ajay Devgn. As can be inferred, the film is centred around a love triangle. Set in the vibrant backdrop of Gujarat, the film is rich with Gujarati culture’s hue and colors. Salman plays Sameer, an NRI student who comes to Nandini’s (Aishwarya Rai) house to grasp the intricacies of Indian classical music. He falls in love with Nandini but their love is welcomed with demur. And Nandini is married off to Vanraj (Ajay Devgn). How their lives turn out is the rest of the plot.
