So now that we have gotten the commercial hits out of the way we have the real gems of the compilation which consists of Akshay’s best performances, which prove his mettle like nothing else:

Ajnabee –

Generally beginning with a negative role isn’t very nice but that is not the case in hand. Akshay played the bad villain in the movie and made us fangirl over him even more. The story of a couple who move into a new neighborhood in a foreign country and get close to their immediate neighbours, a couple with a different lifestyle and outlook. Akshay plays the husband who plans to exchange wives much to the other man`s dismay. The weak plot of the movie along with average performances by the other leads makes it even easier for you to glue your eyes to Akshay, not like he needs any. He plays the bad with a certain elegance and makes the phrase “Bad Boys are always what girls prefer” so much more believable!

Hera Pheri –

One of the best comedy movies made by Bollywood ever, this movie is one cult classic that Indian audience could watch over and over again irrespective of mood and time. Akshay played the role of Raju who is a part of a group of three men who portray excellent camaraderie all while going through a series of funny accidents which could make a rock giggle! Akshay plays the role of the mischievous and selfish guy with a good heart with such ease that it is impossible to imagine anyone as his replacement.

Bhool Bhulaiyaa –

A remake of the Malayalam blockbuster, Akshay played the crazy and weird psychologist who tries the logical way to cure his friend`s ailing wife who seems to be possessed by the ghost haunting her husband`s ancestral home which is a very old palace. Akshay enters the movie quite late after a chunk of the story has been elaborated and the audience is acquainted with the general scenario. Akshay acts like an asset to the movie instead of being the star he is, he becomes his character and acts as nothing more than a catalyst to the development of the story. His subtle yet complex portrayal of the doctor, all while showing the various sides to him is what makes his performance memorable.

Special 26

This real-life adaptation has an amazing storyline with an even better star-cast. Akshay plays the lead in the movie as a team of 26 people is recruited to loot various places in the most organised way ever. The story unravels in such a way that you cannot help but empathise with the core team of thieves who plan the heists. Akshay’s controlled and disciplined demeanour of a fake CBI officer is impeccable. With performers like Manoj Bajpayee and Anupam Kapoor, Akshay still manages to steal the spotlight.

Oh! My God –

One of the most loved Akshay Kumar movie this one stirred controversy all while getting a lot of love from the audience. The story revolves around an atheist who loses his shop to an earthquake and the government rejects his plea for a fund to cover his losses claiming it to be an act of God, which puts the financial aid out of their coverage. He then fights the case against God in the court of law all while dragging the fake and treacherous God-men into the court. Akshay plays Krishna in the movie and probably no other actor could play the role of the notorious God with such élan.

These were a list of Akshay Kumar’s best performance and if you are not watching these already then what are you even doing?!
