5 Underrated Indian Spy Films

Team FC

D-Day (2013)

D-Day follows a group of RAW agents and their mission to extract India’s most wanted D-company leader, Goldman (played by Rishi Kapoor), alive. Apart from its taut pacing and well-written characters,  Advani also delivers a standout climax scene.

Madras Café (2013)

Madras Café is the story of Vikram Singh (John Abraham), an Indian Intelligence Officer deployed in Sri Lanka on a secret mission to decimate the terrorist outfit, LTF. The movie does not follow the predictable pattern of an Indian officer solving problems, instead, it has layers of deceit, leaks and foreign involvement.

Baby (2015)

Baby, a covert task force to eliminate terrorism, is tasked with catching a deadly terrorist. Led by Ajay (Akshay Kumar), this team sets out on their mission. Baby features an ensemble cast of deadly villains and has some of the coolest action sequences in recent times, especially the entry into the hotel at Al-Dera.

Goodachari (2018)

Goodachari transcends its average writing through sheer ambition and sleek action. Adivi Sesh plays Gopi, the orphaned child of a deceased RAW agent. Goodachari is especially memorable for the role it assigns the leading lady in the film (Sobhita Dhulipala, in her Telugu debut)

A Gentleman (2018)

Centred around the story of a peaceful man who wants to settle down in USA with his girlfriend but gets embroiled in a world of espionage because he is mistaken as a spy. Raj and DK execute the pre-interval twist with a lot of skill and the movie is the perfect marriage of comedy and slick action
