One of the most successful action films that came out of the YRF banner, Dhoom featured drool-worthy bikes and macho men -- John Abraham's broody demeanour, Abhishek Bachhcan's no-nonsense cop and Uday Chopra's naive crook were big hits with viewers.

Dhoom 2 replicated the success of the first film.
Hrithik Roshan played an international thief with a ripped body and a skimpily-clad Aishwarya Rai Bachchan played his accomplice.
The action shifted to Brazil this time and there was plenty to feast one's eyes on, from sun-kissed beaches to a bikini-clad Bipasha Basu.

YRF's 2008 film Tashan was all style and little substance.
Anil Kapoor plays Bhaiyyaji, a Bhojpuri-speaking don who wants to learn 'Englissss' while Saif Ali Khan plays a call centre executive, who is summoned by Kareena Kapoor to teach him.
Akshay Kumar, who plays a country bumpkin, rounds off the cast of this film fashioned after a Western.

Kabir Khan's first fictional film Kabul Express, by his own admission, was based on his experiences in post-war Afghanistan when he went there to shot his documentaries.
The film follows two Indian journalists (John Abraham and Arshad Warsi), who are sent to the country to report about civilian life in the war-ravaged areas. There encounters with the Taliban and a fellow journalist from the US make the film engaging.
