Stills from Tevar and Taken 3

Both Bollywood and Hollywood have action to offer this weekend

It's action all the way at the box office this weekend with the Bollywood film Tevar and the Hollywood film Taken 3 set for release.

Arjun Kapoor's childhood dream of working with producer father Boney Kapoor comes true with Tevar, a remake of the 2003 Telugu hit Okkadu. Directed by Amit Sharma and produced by Boney and Sanjay Kapoor, the film, an on-the-run love story, also co-stars Sonakshi Sinha.

The plot revolves around a kabbadi player (Arjun) who goes into hiding with his girlfriend (Sonakshi) in order to save her from an unwanted marriage to a faction leader.

The film's chartbusting numbers such as Madamiyan, Radha Nachegi and Let's Celebrate are already a hit with fans.

In the third instalment of the Taken franchise, Hollywood's unlikeliest action hero Liam Neeson returns as an ex government-operative whose life is turned upside down after he is accused of murdering his ex-wife. He is pursued by a police inspector (Forest Whitaker), and eventually employs his skills to track the real killer and extract justice.

Directed by Olivier Megaton, the film also co-stars Maggie Grace and Famke Janssen.
