Rohit Shetty's Sooryavanshi has set the stage for many more cop movies.

Joginder Tuteja looks at coming films on the men in uniform.


John Abraham, Satyameva Jayate 2

John last donned the uniform in Batla House, a critical and commercial success.

He returns with Nikkhil Advani's production, Satyameva Jayate 2, which has Director Milap Zaveri at the helm of affairs again.

The promo of the film indicates that John isn't just a cop, but he's also a politician, a vigilante, a farmer...


Salman Khan, Antim - The Final Truth

Right from Patthar Ke Phool to Radhe - Your Most Wanted Bhai, Salman has played a cop so many times.

In Antim - The Final Truth, he plays a uniformed Sikh all over again after Heroes, where he had played an army man.

The promo of the Mahesh Manjrekar film indicates that Salman will play to the gallery once again and with brother-in-law Aayush Sharma opposite him, there will be a lot of action and dialoguebaazi in store.

Akshay dons the uniform again after Sooryavanshi in the official remake of the Tamil suspense drama, Ratsasan..

This time, he is on the trail of a serial killer who murders little girls.

This may well be one of the darkest films Akshay has done in his eventful career.


Saif Ali Khan, Vikram Vedha remake

Tamil film Vikram Vedha had done quite well with R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi gaining immense appreciation for their bravura performances.

The film is being remade in Hindi by the original director duo of Pushkar-Gayathri, and the stage is even bigger with a pan-India appeal, courtesy the coming together of Saif Ali Khan and Hrithik Roshan.

While Saif plays the the cop, Hrithik is the antagonist on the run.

Yet another remake which is currently been put together is HIT: The First Case.

Originally made in Telugu, this Vishwak Sen starrer had done well despite releasing just before the first COVID wave broke out.

After that, it did well on OTT.

It caught Bollywood's attention as well and now Rajkummar will step into the part of the protagonist in the remake.


Emraan Hashmi, Driving License remake

Earlier this year, Emraan Hashmi was seen as a cop in Mumbai Saga.

Now, he plays one again in the Hindi remake of the Malayalam film, Driving License.

In the original, Prithviraj Sukumaran played a superstar and Suraj Venjarmoodu played a cop.

If reports are to believed, the Hindi remake would see the face-off between Akshay Kumar and Emraan.


John Abraham, Ayyappanum Koshiyum remake

Yet another Malayalam remake that has been announced is of Ayyappanum Koshiyum.

Like Driving License, this was about the clash of egos between Biju Menon and Prithviraj Sukumaran.

John and Arjun Kapoor will play the respective characters in this drama, directed by Jagan Shakti, who returns after Mission Mangal.

Unconfirmed reports indicate that Nayanthara will play a cop in Atlee's next, starring Shah Rukh Khan.

The source of these reports are a couple of leaked images that have surfaced on the internet.

If it's true, it will be a treat for pan-India audiences to witness this actress on screen, opposite Khan, in a masala entertainer.


Rani Mukerji, Mardaani 3

Though one still awaits an official announcement, one expects Rani Muherji to return with Mardaani 3.

The first two films in the franchise have been good hits, with the actress throwing punches and making them count.

She has been a force to reckon with in these Aditya Chopra productions and one waits to see which crime she will fight in the third part.
