The Current Decade

OMG (2012)

Based on “Kanji Viruddh Kanji” – a successful Gujrati play, Oh My God alerts us about the current situation wherein religion is considered as a huge money-making market. The lead played by Paresh Rawal drags the rigid business of religion and God to court after his shop is damaged due to “The Act Of God”. Keeping in mind to not hurt anyone’s religious beliefs, the dialogues are delivered with banter. On the other hand, Akshay Kumar plays the role of Krishna Vasudev Yadav from Mathura (God) and guides Kanjilal Mehta (Paresh), an atheist during the courtcase. With his noted peaceful grin and screen presence, Akki is just overwhelming.

Baby (2015)

Set to pull out the international criminals, a temporary government intelligence team named “Baby” is assigned for the job with Feroz Ali Khan (Danny Denzongpa) as the leader. Captured with ranked action by Ajay (Akshay Kumar), the special officers have to be careful enough to not get into anybody’s hands. If they do, the government too will refuse to rescue them. With patriotism bleeding from every inch of his being, we see Kumar come up with mindful plots to fulfil the mission and to keep his family at bay. This Neeraj Pandey’s written and directed film is rich and quick in pace that keeps you hooked throughout.

Airlift (2016)

A prominent historical event boldly picked by Menon, gave us the taste of war situation where the maximum number of Indians were rescued during the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq. Akshay played a role inspired by our very own real-life heroes Sunny Mathews and HS Vedi under the name of Ranjit Katyal. Comfortably shifting from an arrogant businessman to a self-sacrificing man within 2hrs and 10mins, Kumar bagged in compliments for this commendable job!

PadMan (2018)

This film, based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham and a short story written by Twinkle Khanna, turned out to be an intelligent one. It throws light on the prevailing taboo of the menstrual cycle and hygiene in India. Akshay Kumar plays the role of Lakshmikant Chauhan (Arun) who is a fixer cum innovator. Not being able to afford the pricey sanitary pad for his wife who wears an unclean cloth during her period; Laxmi decides to make them himself. Frankly speaking, watching a mainstream masculine hero trying on a pad, cycling away with bloodied pants feels historic.

Well, we at have done our best to list down Akshay Kumar’s praiseworthy works of all time. But, if you’d like to add to the list, don’t hesitate to mention it in the comments below 🙂
