AR Murugadoss yet again inspired Bollywood when director Krish made a remake of Tamil Supergirl, Ramanaa and presented Gabbar Is Back. Most action dramas in Bollywood inevitably have Akshay Kumar in them and in this movie too, the Khiladi hero not just got accolades from the masses but earned a lot of critical praise as well. The film shows how Aditya turned into Gabbar and took upon himself the task of punishing corrupt officers when he lost his wife (Kareena Kapoor Khan in a cameo) and his unborn child to a building collapse. Shruti Haasan appears in a lead role and one is bound to notice that she’s indeed gradually making her presence felt in the industry. The film became part of the 100 crore club earning over 160 crores while it was made in a budget of a bit over 60 crores.
