Top 12 Detectives of Bollywood!

  • Films based on a detective are a new trend in Bollywood. It seems this trend is drawing the versatile directors and the leading stars to make a film on such themes. The recent film is Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, which is an ambitious venture of director Dibaker Banerjee and stars the young lad Sushant Singh Rajput as the lead actor. Sushant who entered Bollywood with 'Kai Po Che' is all set to play a young Bengali private detective in the film. From television to a successful carrier in Bollywood, the actor has already made his mark in the industry.

  • After the success of Barfi, Ranbir Kapoor and Anurag Basu have come together again for their next film Jagga Jasoos. In the film, Ranbir will be seen playing a 17 year old boy who becomes a detective to search his missing father. After the failure of Besharam, we just hope this film works in favour of Ranbir Kapoor. Well, it will be interesting to see Ranbir play a teenage detective. On top of that we will see his lady love Katrina Kaif as 
the leading lady in the film.

  • We have already seen Vidya Balan's acting skills in her film Kahaani where she comes to Kolkata in search of her husband. Again, she did a praiseworthy job in Bobby Jasoos which released last year. The actress played various avatars with such ease and simplicity, that we were not even able to recognize her in some of her get ups. But, unfortunately the film could not attract the audience and failed at the box office.

  • Director Sriram Raghavan tried to build Saif Ali Khan's character a strong one in 'Agent Vinod', but it didn't work well on the silver screen. Bollywood's Nawab played a character named Vinod, who is a Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agent. Even Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor's sizzling chemistry was not able to do any favours to the film. Apart from this, Saif Ali Khan with his mean and cool look was able to impress the audience with his acting.

  • If it's Salman Khan, the single screen theatres has to be full! Salman Khan portrayed the role of an Indian spy (RAW) code-named Tiger in his film Ek Tha Tiger who falls in love with a Pakistani spy (ISI) during an investigation and the story further goes on about, how Tiger's ideology and principles change over time. With his drool worthy looks, impressive appearance on the big screen and crackling chemistry with Katrina Kaif, the film became a big hit!

  • The most entertaining and funny detective we have seen in the films is Akshay Kumar. Akshay is one actor who can play any role with such ease, whether it is a police officer, a thief or a detective, everything is a real character for him. He plays a funny detective in Thank You who helps married girls find out about their husband's extra marital affairs. Not only this, it was fun to watch his techniques to bring the husbands back on line.

  • Another film where Salman played a detective was Wanted. Well, not really a detective but Salman played a local ruffian working for a mobster but later it was revealed that he was a cop in disguise.

  • Anil Kapoor still manages to keep his presence alive on the big screen! In Abbas Mustan's movie Race, the actor plays a fruit-eating private detective with Sameera Reddy as his bimbette in tow. The film stars many young actors like Akshay Khanna, Saif Ali Khan, but this veteran actor keeps up with much younger co-stars. Impressive! Isn't it?

  • Emraan Hashmi is one actor who is known for his steamy kiss and sensuous scenes. But, the actor did a brilliant job while playing the character of an undercover Indian detective in his film Gangster who falls in love with an alcoholic girlfriend of a gangster.

  • We all know that Sanjay Dutt is an amazing actor, but the actor playing a funny detective in Chatur Singh Two Star was not acceptable. Donning the trench-coat and by making funny faces, he disappointed us with his cringe worthy performance. Everything from the tacky dialogues to the quirky clothes, this film doesn't come anywhere close to deserving even the 2 stars that is included in the title of the film.

  • Although the film was not a hit, Shah Rukh Khan bagged the title of 'Badshah of Bollywood' after playing a detective in his film Badshah. The film was a combination of comedy, thriller and romance and who can play all the three genres at one time better than King Khan. We also got a chance to see the fresh pairing of SRK and Twinkle Khanna for the first and last time in the film.

  • Akshay Khanna plays a detective in Shahid-Kareena starer 36 China Town. The actor interrogates suspects with much silly drama which makes the film boring but the actor does manage to solve the case before the end-credits roll. We have seen many actors playing detectives in the past, but Akshay surely disappointed us in this one.
