TGIF Repost in Honor of Thugs: Men and Women Emoting With Swords

This is such a good post, totally deserves to be updated and re-used.  Especially so we can all prepare to compare these sword emotions with the Thugs sword emotions.

I thought I wouldn’t be able to find many images, and then I ended up finding too many!  Actors portraying a whole range of emotion, with the dramatic assistance of a sword.

For instance, we have Hema being “confident and worried about my tummy showing” with sword

Sridevi being “Queen of the Universe and All I Survey” with sword

Hema again, being “cocky and a little amused at your confidence” with sword (thanks to cinemachaat for image)

Kareena being “too focused to worry about dirt on my face” with sword.

Kareena again being “who are these people and why is my picture being taken” with sword

Genelia being “I am defensive with great eye-liner” with sword

Sonakshi being “oh yeah, this is sexy, but I better not get cut” with sword

Anushka Shetty being “you disgust me and I will stab you” with sword

Anushka again being “I am resolute and inspiring” with sword(s)

Anushka being “oh yeah, come at me, I’m ready” with sword

Aishwarya being “ha-ha, I got you and I am a little turned on” with sword.  And Hrithik being “oh cute she thinks she has me and I am A LOT turned on” with sword.

Speaking of Hrithik, here he is being “are you looking?  You should be looking. I am a fantastic specimen” with sword.

And here he is being “okay, now I know you must be looking so I’m turning my back” with sword.

Shahrukh approaches sword wielding royalty love stories differently.  Here he is being “Blue Steel face and traffic conductor hand, oh yeah, I’m royal!” with sword

And here’s Aamir being “I am THROWING myself INTO this VERY IMPORTANT historical role” with sword.

And then Salman, like a breath of fresh air, keeping it simple, “ready for you” with sword.

This is Salman being “okay now I am so ready that I am almost over it!” with sword

And then, back in the day in a movie I love despite appearances, here is Salman being “what is happening and why am I wearing this wig and this is super super phallic” with sword

And then, to cleanse our palate, here he is being “so young and beautiful you should just eat me with chocolate sauce” with sword

And finally, my favorite sword picture that I stumbled across while looking for others, Karan Johar being all “This is Amazing!!!  I am so giving it to my twins when they get bigger” with sword and Rajamouli being all “I think he really really likes the present I just gave him!  Sweet!” with sword

And now here’s Prabhas being “my beard is itchy” and Rajamouli being “I just want to get back into the editing bay and be done with this promo event” and Karan being “wait, do I give it to the boy twin or the girl twin? What if they fight over it?” and Rana being “Am I smiling enough?  I’m so tired!” with sword.

And finally, our new entries.

Aamir being “Oh god, I really really hope this doesn’t flop like Mangal Panday but I will try to put on a confident face” with sword.

Amitabh being “I am noble and confident and also kind of using the sword as a cane because I am really quite old to be in an action movie” with sword.

And of course Lloyd Owen being “I’m BRITISH!” with sword

  1. Oh Hrithik, we were alllllllll looking at you in that shirtless sword scene. **sigh**

    I am fascinated by the divide between Desis and non-Desis over ToH. Every non-Desi blogger I know is excited for the film and every Desi I follow on Twitter is dragging it to hell and back.

    BTW, bless you for all this content. The news cycle has been a nightmare and it’s wonderful to find a respite here.

    • Bless you for commenting! I was feeling all sad and forgotten this morning until your little burst of comments.

      I love this Swords post, it is so stupid and so silly. I’ve tried to recreate it a few times with other things and I just can’t.

    • I do love that photo. And I was talking with a friend about how awesome it would be if there was an older powerful action heroine woman in TOH, and I realized I want Hema to play it, wouldn’t Hema from that photo be amazing in TOH going up against Amitabh and Aamir?

      • How dare you? :-p It is ridiculous, but peak hotness and I love his hair like that. Here’s the Twitter post it came from. https://twitter.com/srkuniverse/status/874089492512096256

        Oh, and I think he’s emoting amusement at getting paid however much he got paid to show up and hold a sword. Except in the last photo where he’s holding an eagle, where he’s emoting “Please don’t eat my face, nice bird.”

        • Agree completely with your emoting theories.

          And, don’t hate me, but I think that hair might be a wig? It is just a little too consistantly black and doesn’t look quite right to me. Also, if I were going to be paid to hold a fighting bird, I might choose a wig over real hair.

  2. If you like swords then you should watch the Hunted 1995 movie.

    characters in the movie slash others like it is a game of fruit ninja 😦

    atleast you get to watch all the ‘action’ to the spectacular rhythym of Kodo’s background music
