role reminds you of one he did in another film, Pyar Tho Hona Hi Tha. There he i
s searching for the boyfriend of the girl he secretly loves. But intense scenes

In 2001, Devgan starred in another moderately successful film, Yeh Raaste Hain P

r with the public.[47] Mahesh Manjrekar's Tera Mera Saath Rahen followed.
In 2002, Devgan performed in Ram Gopal Varma's fictional examination of the Mumb
ai underworld in the film Company. Devgan played a gangster named Malik. Both Co
mpany and Devgan's performance received critical acclaim. Taran Adarsh reviewed,
"Ajay Devgn enacts his role to perfection. A controlled performance, the actor
takes to this complex character like a fish takes to water. He underplays his pa
rt with admirable ease."[48] Devgan was nominated for the Filmfare Best Actor Aw
ard and won the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor.[49] Devgan's next release
was David Dhawan's comedy Hum Kisise Kum Nahin, with Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay D
utt and Aishwarya Rai.[49] The same year, he played the role of Bhagat Singh, in
Rajkumar Santoshi's biopic The Legend of Bhagat Singh.[50] His performance was
well received by critics. Taran Adarsh said, "Ajay Devgn has lived the role. To
state that he is excellent would be an understatement. His performance is bound
to win admiration from cinegoers, besides fetching awards."[51] The film was rel
eased on 7 June 2002 and went on to win two National Film Awards, including the
National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Hindi, and three Filmfare Awards, i
ncluding the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Movie. Despite these awards, and De
vgan winning his second National Film Award for Best Actor for his performance,
the film was not popular with the public.[49] Devgan went on to perform in Anees

ice.[52] He then starred in the action thriller Qayamat: City Under Threat with

n next performed in Milan Luthria's romantic film Chori Chori opposite Rani Mukh
erji and Sonali Bendre. This film did not succeed at the box office.[52] Devgan'
s next release of the year was Prakash Jha's Gangaajal. The film was set in the
time of the blinding incident in Bhagalpur, Bihar. Rediff.com said, "Ajay Devgan
pulls up an ace with a part tailormade to reinforce his seething-under-the-surf
ace angry hero image. To his credit (and the director's), he brings style and gr
ace to a largely stereotypical, righteous protagonist. To a great extent, his pr
esence covers up the film's patchiness in the second half."[53] Devgan was nomin
ated for the Filmfare Best Actor Award for this performance. He then worked in R
ohit Shetty's directional debut Zameen[54] and J. P. Dutta's war film LOC Kargil
.
In 2004, Devgan was cast with Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai and Akshay Kumar i
n Rajkumar Santoshi's action thriller Khakee. The film was released on 23 Januar
y 2004. It received positive reviews and became one of the highest-grossing film
s of 2004.[55] In Khakee, Devgan once again played a villain. His performance as
a police officer turned murderer was well received by critics. Taran Adarsh sai
d, "Ajay Devgan adds yet another feather in his cap with a performance that coul
d've been played only by a master performer. His confrontations with Amitabh Bac
hchan are exemplary."[56] Later in 2004, Devgan appeared in Indra Kumar's Masti:
Sanam Teri Kasam. He also starred in Yuva.[57][58][59]
Devgan next collaborated with Rituparno Ghosh in the relationship drama Raincoat
with Aishwaraya Rai. The film is an adaptation of O. Henry's The Gift of the Ma
gi. Raincoat met with wide critical acclaim and won the National Film Award for
Best Feature Film in Hindi.[60][61] Devgan was praised for his performance. Redi
ff said, "Hesitation, desperation, humiliation Ajay Devgn conveys them eloquentl
y. His Manoj is no cool dude, but just another lower middle-class guy in misery,
with whom none would like to switch place. He particularly stands out in the sc
enes where he cries in the bathroom, or begs Neeru not to marry someone else."[6
0] In 2004, Devgan was also seen in a cameo appearance in Taarzan: The Wonder Ca
r.
2005 was a less successful year for Devgan. His movies were not financially succ
essful. They included Insan, Blackmail, Main Aisa Hi Hoon, Tango Charlie and Shi
khar. However, the films Kaal and Apaharan did well. For his performance in Apah
aran, Devgn was nominated for the National Film Award for Best Actor and the Fil
mfare Best Actor Award. His performance as a villain in Kaal also earned him a n
omination for the Filmfare Best Villain Award.[62]

In 2006 Devgan played Othello in Omkara, an Hindi adaptation of William Shakespe
are's Othello. It was directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. The film is a tragedy of sexu
al jealousy set against the backdrop of the political system in Uttar Pradesh. I
t premiered at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival and was screened at the Cairo Inter
national Film Festival.[63][64] Omkara was well received by critics. Rediff said
, "Othello is a tricky role, a leading man eclipsed by the villain. Yet the Moor
is a brooding and compelling character, and Ajay Devgn does valiantly with his
material. Omkara strips Othello of the racism, exchanging his black skin for sur
prisingly inconsequential half-Brahminism. Ajay's best bits are when restrained,
and while there is a bit of a seen-that feel to his character, by the time the
film is over, you realise just how unflinchingly solid he's been."[65] Taran Ada
rsh said, "Ajay makes a stirring and powerful interpretation of a man haunted by
uncertainty about his lover's faithfulness. The serious look that Ajay carries
suits him to the T. Of course, Ajay is exceptional in the film and looks every i
nch the character he portrays."[66]
In 2006, Devgan also starred in Rohit Shetty's Golmaal. It had two sequels Golma
al Returns and Golmaal 3. In the same year, Devgan was featured in a short docum
entary about the Mumbai floods of 2005 titled The Awakening.[67]

ash and Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag.
In 2008, Devgan performed in the social film Halla Bol, directed by Rajkumar San
toshi. Also in the cast were Pankaj Kapoor and Vidya Balan.[68][69] The film is
based on the life of activist Safdar Hashmi, who was killed in 1989 by political
rivals while performing in the street play, Halla Bol.[70] The film received ha
rsh reviews.[71]
In 2008, Devgan also performed in Rohit Shetty's third film Sunday. He then took
the lead role with Kajol in his own directorial debut film, U Me Aur Hum.[72] T
he film performed moderately well at the box-office and earned positive critical
reviews for his performance as well as for his direction. Rediff said, "His cha
racter grows, discovers both shirt-buttons and subtlety, delivering an intense a
cting job. Speaking almost entirely in platitudes pithy at first, profound as he
goes on this grows into an extraordinarily well-written character, replete with
flaws and relatability. The way he treats his remorse, drunkenly pointing every
finger at himself around a dinner table, is superbly handled, as is his guilty
struggle to delineate his life experience from his professional opinion."[73] De
vgan also made a cameo appearance in his brother Anil Devgan's film Haal e dil. He t
hen starred in Afzal Khan's Mehbooba.
Again in 2008, Devgan performed in Rohit Shetty's comedy Golmaal Returns, a sequ
el to the 2006 film Golmaal: Fun Unlimited about a mistrustful wife who believed
her husband was unfaithful. The Indian Express said the screenplay was derivati
ve, concluding, "There is nothing particularly new about a suspicious wife keepi
ng tabs on her husband, and there is nothing particularly new in the way Ajay-Ka
reena play it."[74] Golmaal Returns was a financial success with global revenues
of ?79.25 crore (US$12 million).[75]
In 2009, Devgan produced his third film, All the Best, directed by Rohit Shetty.
It had some financial success.[76][77] Next, Devgan starred in Vipul Shah's Lon
don Dreams with Salman Khan and the Tamil film star Asin. The film was not popul
ar with the public.[76]

lmaal 3 (2010), Raajneeti (2010), Singham (2011), Bol Bachchan (2012), Son of Sa
rdaar (2012), Singham Returns (2014) and Drishyam (2015).[78][79][80] In 2010, D

thriller Rajneeti. Raajneeti was released internationally on 4 June 2010, after
some controversies regarding similarities between actual people and the characte
rs in the film. There were also issues about the use of the national anthem in t
he film. The film was made with a budget of ?60 crore (US$9.3 million)[81] When
the film was released, it had positive reviews and was financially successful.[8
2] Again, in 2010, Devgan starred in Milan Luthria's Once Upon a Time in Mumbai
which was among the top-grossing films of that year.[83] Both the film and Devga
n's performance were well received by the critics. Taran Adarsh said, "Ajay Devg
n is splendid as Sultan. The actor had enacted a similar role in Company, but it
must be said that his interpretation is so different in Once Upon A Time in Mum
baai. He adds so much depth to the character, which only goes to prove his range
and versatility. This is, without a trace of doubt, Ajay's finest work so far."
[84] Komal Nahta said, "Ajay Devgn is simply fantastic in the role of Sultan Mir
za. So real is his performance that it looks like he was born to play this role.
Right from his look to his acting including dialogue-delivery, everything is fa
bulous. Indeed, an award-winning performance!"[85]
Devgan then starred in Priyadarshan's action-thriller film, Aakrosh. The movie e
xplores the subject of honour killings. Aakrosh received some positive reviews b
ut financially unsuccessful. At the end of 2010, Devgan worked again with Rohit
Shetty in Golmaal 3, a sequel to Golmaal Returns (2008). Although, like its pred

aal series, earning more than ?107 crore (US$17 million).[86] Devgan also worked
as a voice artist in Toonpur Ka Super Hero, an animated film.
In 2011, Devgan performed with Emraan Hashmi in Madhur Bhandarkar's comedy Dil T
oh Baccha Hai Ji. He was a narrator in Yamla Pagla Deewana and also made a cameo
appearance in Ready. Devgan starred in Rohit Shetty's Singham. Taran Adarsh sai
d, "The title means 'Lion' and Ajay is in the centre of the battle between good
and evil. Ajay is well known for the lines, "aataa maajhi satakli". The embodime
nt of screen masculinity, Ajay enacts the central character of a righteous, hard
hearted cop with flourish. He brings alive on screen a larger-than-life hero cha
racter with determined conviction, which renders you thunderstruck. One of the f
ew actors who underplays his part admirably, he returns to the over-the-top-acti
on genre of films with this one. In a nutshell, his performance plays a pivotal
role in carrying the film to the winning post."[87] He then starred David Dhawan
's action comedy film Rascals.[88]
In 2012, Devgan starred in Tezz, directed by Priyadarshan. His co-stars were Ani

In 2014, Devgn featured in Rohit Shetty's Singham Returns , a sequel to Singham.
Singham Returns received mixed reviews from Indian critics.[91] Taran Adarsh of
Bollywood Hungama gave it 4 stars and said "The film is a complete mass entertai
ner with power-packed drama, hi-intensity dialogue and towering performances as
its aces. The brand value attached to it coupled with a long weekend will help t
he film reap a harvest and rule the box office in days to come.".[92] Singham Re
turns nett. Collection over ?32.09 crore (US$5.0 million) on the first day of it
s release in India. Domestic nett of Singham Returns are ?140.62 crore (US$22 mi
