Yes, Sunny Deol's performance in BORDER was outstanding! I also loved the film JEET! (See http://www.fallinginlovewithbollywood.com/2015/03/beauty-and-the-beast-bollywood-style-jeet.html). I've seen ARJUN, BETAAB and DILLAGI, but at the time of this post these films were difficult to find in U.S. DVD or streaming sources - so I chose not to recommend since the purpose of these lists is to encourage viewing. Good to see that access to Indian films is improving in the U.S. Of the three films you mentioned, ARJUN is my favorite. I was also happy to see GHAYAL ONCE AGAIN. It was interesting to see the continuing saga of Ajay Mehra and how Sunny Deol envisioned the character's evolution. Looking forward to GHAYAL: TRINITY!
Tenadek - yes, Zakhm, The Legend of Bhagat Singh and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam are wonderful films starring Ajay Devgn. This list focused on his roles as a police officer, so those films didn't fit into this category. Perhaps it is time to highlight these films and some more recent films of Ajay Devgn! Definitely looking forward to seeing his performance in TAANAJI. :)
