After the Indian, Telugu language film RRR hit Netflix and blew up around the world, everyone’s looking for the next big hit out of India and a movie hitting theaters this week might just be that movie: Bade Miyan Chote Miyan. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the Hindi language action-thriller is a wild ride. When an anonymous, masked villain emerges in India and targets the military, stealing dangerous secrets, two legendary agents are brought out of hiding to track the infiltrator down.

Enter Firoz “Freddy”, a.k.a. Bade Miyan and Rakesh “Rocky,” a.k.a. Chote Miyan (Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff, respectively), two elite soldiers with wildly differing personalities and methodologies. Together, they must fight an army of masked vigilantes to track down the real villain.

Even if that’s a great time at the theater, it’s not the only Hindi and/or Telugu language film in theaters right now. Some great ones are currently in theaters in North America. If you’ve wanted to start getting more into Indian films, 2024 is the year to start.
