100 Spy Movies You Should Watch If You Love Going Undercover!

Action movies have become everyone's favourite right from the time Jackie Chan amused us with his action and comic blend. And we especially loved it after the west started exploring the spy theme thanks to Ian Fleming. He is the one who introduced us to James Bond character by writing 11 Bond novels and we are so fortunate to have his writings being converted into movies. We are in awe when we watch Hollywood Spy Movies like Casino Royale even today and who wouldn't agree if we say Daniel Craig looks classy playing the character of James Bond. He carried the same poise in Skyfall movie that became the second highest grosser of 2012.

While the west has shone in this genre, other movie industries experimented with it and have released quite a slew of movies that have grabbed eyeballs. Our very own favourite MegaStar Chiranjeevi played the role of a C.B.I. agent in the Telugu spy movie Gudachari No. 1, which became a blockbuster in 1983. Coming to Bollywood, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Ek Tha Tiger was the highest grossing Bollywood film of 2012.

One man who has to be appreciated in this field is Kamal Haasan, an actor who has starred in multilingual films. He has directed and co-produced his movie Vishwaroopam in 2013, which was one among the highest grossing Tamil movies of all time. He has announced the sequel named Vishwaroopam II which released in 2018.

Meanwhile here are 100 spy movies that you should watch if you like going undercover!
