    This is yet another movie that explores the concept of two loving brothers standing on the opposite side of the law. Just the way Vinod Khanna leads a dual life and masks his real identity by pretending to be an NGO worker, in the same way John masquerades his real job of killing corrupt police officials by pretending to be an artist.

    Gunda

    This Mithun Chakraborty movie is not only similar to Satyameva Jayate in terms of graphic violence but also in another aspect. Even in Gunda, hero and villains constantly have angry poetry face-offs and people recite couplets before and while dying. In the same way in Satyameva Jayate, John Abraham makes sure to recite Sanskrit poetry before he burns corrupt police officials alive.

    Agneepath

    Another films that you will be reminded of while watching Satyameva Jayate is Agneepath especiallynthe new one with Hrithik Roshan in the lead. As if the use of blood and fire to show action was not enough throwback, the whole ‘imaandar baap ki maut ka badla’ is straight out of the film. It does not help that the actor Chetan Pandit who played the role of small Hrithik’s father in Agneepath is the same actor playing the role of John and Manoj Bajpai’s father in Satyameva Jayate.

    Gabbar Is Back

    The whole deal of John Abraham being a vigilante and killing corrupt police officers and being smart enough to out manoeuvre everyone is straight out of Akshay Kumar starrer Gabbar Is Back that came out in 2012, which in itself was the remake of 2002 Tamil film Ramanna. How original Milap Zaveri! Such respect, much wow!
