Before the Internet explodes with those by-now mandatory Rajinikanth jokes to celebrate him winning the Padma Vibhushan award, here’s a small treat for the legions of his fans. Here are five scenes from his films where the 65-year-old actor gives us a hint into why he is one of a kind.

Padayappa (1999)
Man, you’ve got to watch this close encounter between Rajinikanth and Ramya Krishnan. It’s a loaded scene where Ramya and Rajini fight for an upperhand. Do you really think anybody other than Rajini could do this scene with equal swagger?

Baasha (1995)
Check out his entry scene in Baashha (1995). Move over Travis Bickle (Taxi Driver). Here’s someone who could teach you how to do it.

Velaikaran (1987)
He’s called the people’s actor for nothing but this: The hero fights for his people. So, he did it. Right in the middle of the road.

Enthiran (2010)
Listen to this dialogue and you know what we’re talking about. English subtitles are there for your benefit.

Compilation from various films
This montage of Rajini’s action scenes will make your day for sure, maybe even night.
