Most. Outrageous. Action. Movie. Ever?

At first, this extended clip from the 2010 Bollywood Kollywood film Enthiran — about a sentient robot created by a professor in his own image (Rajinikanth), who falls in love with the professor’s fiance (Aishwarya Rai), and then, naturally, turns evil — makes it seem like a cheesy mashup of Terminator 2 and The Matrix. Then the evil robot turns the guns of a small army against them in a most novel fashion, and you realize this film is a brilliantly cheesy mashup of Terminator 2, The Matrix, and that crazy-bananas martial arts comedy Kung Fu Hustle. And by the time a swarm of evil robots collectively form into a giant, seemingly indestructible sphere, you realize this is simply the most absolutely bananas action movie you may have ever seen in your life. Think I’m exaggerating? Watch the clip below, and then tell me, PopWatchers, if you can think of another action movie — reportedly the most expensive in Indian cinema history — that tops this one in sheer bonkers shamelessness: 

UPDATE: Thanks to eagle-eyed commenters for pointing out that Enthiran is a Tamil, a.k.a. Kollywood, film, and not a Bollywood one.

    Nice! I love the sphere!

  • Solamente Dave

    Dad-gum, that was nuts.

    I only made it through about half of it before the annoying Russian (?) dubbing drove me crazy.

  • Mr. Holloway

    Gleefully ridiculous! But on purpose, since this is clearly a comedy.

    I’ll still take something like “Commando” for Most Outrageous Action Movie.

  • bgw

    You really need to watch it until the end. It just gets more and more outrageous. Mute it if you have to.

    Michael Bay, seriously dude, you need to watch this and take notes.

    And Hollywood, do you see what a minimum of Shaky-Camness and a refusal to rely on fast cuts for action can do?

    Just an FYI, this is not a Bollywood film (meaning Hindi language/film industry based in Mumbai/Bombay); it’s Kollywood (Tamil language/film industry based in Chennai). Not all Indian films are made in Mumbai, and the regional industries have their own distinct personalities.

    bollywood = hindi movies. enthiran is a tamil movie. tamil movies are made in kollywood and not bollywood.

    • sivamgr

      bollywood = Hindi Movies (North India)
      Kollywood = Tamil Movies (South)
      Tollywood = Telugu Movies (South)
      Mollywood = Malayalam Movies (South)

      and so on.. there are another 24+ official languages and 600+ Unofficial, among which 3 or 4 into movie making.

      • satheesh
