Movies give us timeless heroes and powerful villains. Like Harry from the Harry Potter series to Bajrangi from Bajrangi Bhaijaan. And Draco from the Harry Potter series to Gabbar Singh from Sholay. They are incomplete without a hero and a villain. But sometimes, they give us characters that leave us with nothing but a burning desire to punch them in the face. Conniving movie villains that are so infuriatingly evil that we get great pleasure in watching them get what they deserve.
So today, we are looking at 12 of the biggest bollywood movie villains of all time. Movie villains that we can’t help but love to hate. Read on.
1. Gabbar – Sholay
veteran actor Amjad Khan is well-known for his character as the eternal villain of Bollywood. “Kitne aadmi the?” yes, we are talking about his role as ‘Gabbar’ from Sholay. Everything was perfect, be it his acting, his dialogue delivery, or his cruelty. It would be wrong if we say that he is not one of the hated yet loved villains of Bollywood.
2. Dheeraj Pandey – Murder 2
In the second installment of Murder, we saw Prashant Narayanan portraying the role of a villain. And to say that he did complete justice to the role would be an understatement. He amazingly played the role of a satan worshiper who mercilessly killed any woman he came across. Therefore his convincing performance is the reason why we add him to list this.
3. Mogambo – Mr. India
An edge-of-the-seat thrill is a perfect way to describe the film, Mr. India. Late legendary actor Amrish Puri played the role of the sinister yet clever Mogambo in this film. “Mogambo khush hua” was his patent dialogue for whenever there were villainous things to happen. Indeed an iconic villain from Hindi cinema.
4. Sunny – Mardaani 2
Rising star Vishal Jethwa portrayed the character of Sunny in Mardaani 2. He, without any doubt, did an outstanding job. In Rani Mukerji’s action-thriller Mardaani 2, he was a hard-to-catch rapist. His character was loathed nationwide, and we all know that’s a compliment.
5. Kancha Cheena – Agneepath
Kancha Cheena, the name itself suggests how villainous the character could be. In the 2012 film Agneepath, veteran actor Sanjay Dutt portrayed this evil role. The evilness, gruesomeness, and cunning looks accordingly made the character more interesting.
6. Ma’am – Kaun
Although her character did not have any name Urmila Matondkar still aced in the thriller film Kaun. Evils often have a habit of portraying themselves as victims, and this character was no different. She was mostly referred to as Ma’am, although her character was much darker than you can imagine.
7. Shakaal – Shaan
Spine-chilling performance is an apt term to describe the character Shakaal. Portrayed by actor Kulbhushan Kharbanda, this character made its way into the hearts of many people who hated him dearly. It was from the famous film Shaan.
8. Prem – Bobby
“Prem naam hai mera, Prem Chopra,” every cinephile is well aware of this dialogue. Veteran actor Prem Chopra played the role of Prem in the film Bobby. The character’s devilishness is unparalleled; therefore, we call him an iconic villain from B-Town.
9. Rakesh – Ek Villain
Ek Villain is a heartwrenching film. In addition to the hate that Riteish Deshmukh received for his evil roleplay, his acting was loved as much. Rakesh brutally murdered an innocent woman for his anger with his wife; if that is not villainous, then what is?
10. Liak Tungrekar – Badlapur
Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of the most talented actors from the B-Town. He portrayed the role of a petty thief in Badlapur whose robbery went wrong. However, his character received the required amount of hate for a villain.
11. Maharani – Sadak
Sadashiv Amrapurkar is still popularly known for portraying Maharani in Mahesh Bhatt’s film Sadak. This was a character that is revered as one of the most wicked and dreadful villains. The reason is, Maharani ordered her henchman to kill two people who were dearly in love.
12. Robert – Amar Akbar Anthony
Amar Akbar Anthony is one of the sensational films from the older times. Late actor Jeevan is known for his villainous roles, but his most famous one is Robert from AAA. His sophisticated character had the evilest traits of all.
These are some of the very famous villains from our B-Town. With their talent, a movie turns out to be a success, and we love them for that!
