While we usually focus on the many heroes and heroines in films, it appears that villains are the new preoccupation. Since we’ve already talked about a movie’s main character, admit it or not, villains are also a true “star” in any film.
The success of the film is determined not only by the heroes, but also by the antagonists. Various iconic villains, such as Gabbar from Sholay, Lion from Kaalicharan, Prem from the movie Bobby, and others, are still remembered by fans.
These villains were so good that they eclipsed the film’s protagonists. The baddies of Bollywood, on the other hand, have evolved with the passage of time. So, in today’s piece, we’ve compiled a list of some of history’s most bizarre villains.
Audiences were terrified of these individuals because they were both insane and evil at the same time. Take a look at this:
Murder 2 – Prashant Narayanan
This sensuous film, starring Emraan Hashmi and Jaquiline, altered people’s perceptions of fear.
Prashant’s violent and insane performance as Dheeraj Pandey in the film about a sexist cross-dressing eunuch and a psychopathic serial killer who poses as a customer, telephones the hookers, and murders them was well worth seeing.
Mardaani 2 – Vishal Jethwa
This one takes a particular position on the list because to his status as one of the most psychotic killers of all time. We vividly recall the beginning of the film, when the role of “Sunny,” played by Vishal Jethwa in Mardaani 2, mercilessly caught up with a little girl.
The audience was sufficiently terrified by that particular scene from the film!! Aside from that, the psychopath killer in the film was a terrifying experience for both the audience and the performer.
When asked about his performance in the film, the actor admits to going through a traumatic experience and even began crying after exiting his part.
Makdee – Shabana Azmi
This villain was a nightmare for any child, and many of the children of the 1990s have been haunted by him! Is that correct? Shabana Azmi, a Bollywood actress, managed to persuade us that she was a witch or something else entirely throughout the film.
However, as the film proceeds, the true nature of this psychotic monster is revealed to be a con woman. Shabana’s witch was a psychopath in every sense of the word!
Kaun – Urmila Matondkar
While we were all expecting Manoj Bajpayee to play a true psychopath throughout the movie, the actress Urmila Matondkar proved to be a pleasant surprise for the audience.
Various suspects for being a psychopath killer were pointed out in the film from the beginning to the very end, with Urmila prone as a victim, but the actual drama unfolds at the end of the film, with Urmila being a psychopath but mad killer.
We were completely frightened out by her behaviour throughout the movie and what she was doing!
Sangharsh – Ashutosh Rana
When we hear the name of this film, we get a shiver down our spine because of Ashutosh Rana’s role in it. The actor’s spooky yet horrifying appearance in this film had our hearts skip a beat. Remember how this madman was spotted bald and making a weird sound at the end of the movie?
This was another another wacky villain who ranks among the top of this list!
Ek Villain – Ritesh Deshmukh
Aside from featuring a number of well-known and well-loved songs, the film’s Shraddha and Siddhant combination was well-received by the audience. For Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor and actor Ritiesh Deshmukh, this film was a life-changing experience.
While we’ve usually seen Ritiesh in comedic parts, this film made us reconsider our opinion of him. His portrayal of a psychotic killer who vents his rage on a group of nameless girls by brutally murdering them was genuinely insane!
Table no 21 – Paresh Rawal
If you’re one of the people who hasn’t seen this movie due of its unpopular cast, it’s time to reconsider. This Bollywood film is one of the most underappreciated, yet it has a deep message and a number of disturbing themes.
In the film, Paresh Rawal played not just a quirky character, but also a psychotic villain with his own methods of seeking vengeance!
Badlapur – Nawazuddin Siddiqui
Now, this is most likely one of Varun Dhawan’s classic but magnificent performances. From the songs to the storey, it managed to make us all cry at least once throughout the entire film. Is that correct?
Nawazuddin’s portrayal of Liak Mohammed Tungrekar in the film was genuinely bizarre.
Darna Mana hai – Rajpal Yadav and Sushant Singh
We kept this film at the bottom of the list since it was accountable for a slew of psychopaths throughout the movie! Despite the fact that we only listed the names of two psychopaths in the title, this film was totally based on any and all types of psychopaths that one may possibly encounter or envision!
Rajpal Yadav’s tale, in which he was presented as a frightening apple salesman, was told in story number four. In narrative number two, the actor Boman Irani appeared as a psychotic murderer and a hotelier.
Apart from that, Sushant Singh, who played a crazed shadow murderer throughout the film, was a cherry on top toward the conclusion.
So, which one did you think was the craziest!? Could you think of any additional psychopaths from Bollywood films that we missed? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below. And don’t forget to follow Desihumor on Twitter for additional updates.
