Actor Rajinikanth's badassery on screen - lighting his cigarettes with pistol shots - is widely known among Indian pop culture fans. But if you imagine for a moment that there were others like him, in fact 7, all of a sudden you begin to question your entire existence.
These gems from the bowels of YouTube sum up the Indian superhero cult - men who perform unbelievable stunts seemingly with little or no effort while maintaining a clinical distance from their subjects - in this case unfortunate everyday objects that are thrown in the air, blown up and trashed.
These logic-defying fight scenes make you make you wonder why these men's talents haven't been exploited for the greater good. There are no colourful underpants and latex tights involved - just good old-fashioned shirts, bright trousers teamed with some really chill shades.
Here are seven perfectly good scenes from Indian films you need to revisit for laughs.

Easy, affordable heart transplants, anyone?
