Happy Veteran’s Day! To Celebrate, Men in Uniform!

Happy Veterans Day!  Yesterday was the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI and there weren’t nearly as many celebrations as I expected.  I guess 100 years from now everything we are going through will seem very small and out of date too.  That’s kind of comforting.  Anyway, enough of that, hot guys in uniform!

First, Shahid in Rangoon

And, for comparison, in Mausam

He’s in a flight suit, which of course makes me think of Shashi, The Best Kapoor, in Silsila.

There’s just something about a man in uniform being sweet and sensitive, right?  Like Rajesh Khanna here, looking all boyish and sweet but clothed in manly power and military might.

Almost as good is when the uniform and the responsibilities with it make him so responsible and manly that he doesn’t even notice the lovely lady next to him, like Amitabh!

Oh, Indian police uniform!  Why are you always so tailored and tight-fitting?  At least when certain actors like Ajay Devgn wear you.

Or Salman

Even Aamir Khan got in on it!

Or Sanjay Dutt.

Ooo!  We can do a “Now” and “Then” thing!  Check out Sanju Baba in uniform back in the day:

You know who has been in more uniformed roles than anyone?  Akshay Kumar!  Check out this richness.  From the innocent officer in training:

To the macho army commando:

To the police officer:

And, of course, his recent marathon 2 hour role entirely in a white dress Navy uniform:

I can’t forget Hrithik!  So pretty in uniform.

And let us take a trip down south.  Prabhas, we have this first look kind of image available to us.

Suriya practically lives in uniform.

I would never forget Nivin!

Or Prithviraj

And finally, did you really think I was going to let this go without SRK?  Let us remember, his very first part was as a man in uniform!

And then, years later, he returned to the uniform in one of his biggest hits.

Another one!

And another!

And then let me bring it on home with an orgy of Jab Tak Hain Jaan.

(Can I make a joke about how an Indian officer always has his “guns” on display?)

Oh!  And one more I just ran across.  He’s not technically in the uniform, but I think we can all enjoy this anyway, right?  And also suddenly feel tempted to join the Indian police force, if this is an occasional perk for their female officers.

Now, two things to ponder:

If you were making a recruiting poster of the noblest best looking man in uniform, who would you pick? (Shahrukh and non-Shahrukh category)

For me, for Shahrukh category, this one:

Non-Shahrukh category, this one:

If you were putting up a photo in your locker to sigh over secretly, who would you pick (Shahrukh and non-Shahrukh category)?

For me, for Shahrukh category, this one:

And for non-Shahrukh category, this one:

Update:  Sorry, Angie reminded me I forgot someone VERY IMPORTANT

  1. Recruiting poster, Shah Rukh category–same
    Non-Shah Rukh category–Suriya

    Poster in locker, Shah Rukh category–tie between blue flak vest and Samar with his hand in his pocket

    Non-Shah Rukh category–Shahid in Rangoon. He was incredibly hot in that movie, silly as it was.

    • You just gave me an excuse to look at the post again to see all those images, so thank you!

      Glad you agree with my SRK recruiting poster. The Indian Army really should be using it.

      My only problem with the SRK hand in pocket photo is that you can see very clearly his army ID of “Samar” (no last name). Which seems very inaccurate.

        • I think you solved the problem. All he has to do is remove the entire shirt, and then it doesn’t bother me at all.

      • 1) Accuracy in uniform name tags means last name over right pocket. Both in Indian and US military forces.
        2) Hands in pockets not allowed.
        3) Why mix police uniforms with Military uniforms when it is a Veterans Day holiday?

        • 1) That’s what I thought! It will continue to bother me

          2) I will assume the hands in pockets was him being caught in a candid casual moment. Perhaps the very second he was pulling something out of the pocket.

          3) Because I couldn’t find enough military uniform images.

    • Oh dear, what do you think the chances are that we have an actual Indian army member reading this blog who could help? I think probably very very slight, but maybe!

      • Maybe it’s an intentional difference for movie actor officers out of respect to real officers? To show they know they’re not the real thing? Like a 555 telephone number. Seems odd that every single one is wrong.

  2. Yesterday was 100th anniversary of Poland regaining indipendence and it was huge and very important. My hubby even made a white-red cake for this occasion 🙂

    Recruting poster:
    SRK’s second photo
    Non SRK – Shashi

    Locker photo:
    SRK – last one with Anushka
    There is no Maddy’s photo from Vettai so Surya

    • I took a Polish history class in college and it gave me a whole new view of WWI. In America, we think of it as the trenches in France and our first move towards being a global power. But in the Polish history class, it was the end of decades and decades of Polish oppression. Made me happier, because the other way WWI is sometimes seen is as a pointless war, trenches that didn’t move for years and then when it was over nothing had really changed. But something did change!!! Poland got independence!!!!

      And I have now fixed that grievous error on my part.

  3. Yes, the always tailored police uniform! When I was rewatching Talaash the other day I noticed that when you watch Aamir and Rajkummar from behind, Aamir’s uniform lovingly cups his manly buttocks but Rajkummar’s does not. I wondered if Aamir’s was tailored and Rajkummar’s wasn’t, but there is a chance that Aamir was just more fit before Rajkummar became a romantic hero, and he fills out his uniform better. I wondered about this but I definitely did not rewind a bunch of times to watch it again.

    Recruiting poster: I dunno, SRK just looks too sad in the rain to recruit people. But it might be the best picture. Non-SRK: Gonna go with Aamir, assuming we’re recruiting for the police.

    In my locker: SRK in Fauji! I usually like older SRK better, but he’s so little and young and cute and earnest! Non-SRK: Prithviraj.
