Bollywood might not have reached the level of Hollywood when it comes to animation and creating special VFX characters, but when it comes to naming our Villains, our script writers are way way ahead of Hollywood.
For years, our Villains have been given amusing names and have been asked to play a rather comical person on screen. Their onscreen portrayal of a villainous character often gets blown away due to typical catchy and amusing names given to them.
In this post, the team of Funniest Indian brings a list of all those villains, who made the audience laugh rather than intimidate them.
1- Amrish Puri In 1992 movie Tahalka
With an eerie song ‘Shom Shom Sha Sha’ increasing his demeanor, Amrish Puri as ‘Dongrilla ka Hitler General Dong’ was more comical than menacing.
Amrish Puri as General Dong
2- Amrish Puri In Nishaan
Though the movie didn’t fare well at box office, Amrish Puri’s school girl look did create a hype but failed miserably.
3- Kulbhushan Kharbanda in Shaakaal
Shaakaal’s gadgets, comfortable arm-wresting chair, control room with buttons and pond with swimming sharks, made him more of an entertainer rather than villain.
4- Deepak Shirke as Pralaynath Gendaswamy in Tirangaa
One of the worst villain names Bollywood ever came up with, Gendaswamy symbolized a union between Bollywood and a hippo cartoon character. His warnings in the movie sounded more like wedding bells rather than death bells.
5- Gulshan Grover as Kesariya Villayati in Ram Lakhan
The only bad thing Gulshan Kumar did in the movie, he called himself Bad Man.
6- Mohan Agashe as ‘Khokha Singh’ in Trimurti
Khokha Singh should be a prime target of CBI rather than our politicians. His name perfectly symbolizes what is wrong with him.
7- Shakti Kapoor as Crime Minister Gogo
Like his entry in the movie, he seems a character straight out from some comedy show.
8- Mukesh Rishi as Bulla in Gunda
‘Naam hai bulla, rakhta hun khulla’. It is sufficient to bring out his pedigree as a villain.
9- Amrish Puri as Mogambo in Mr India
‘Soja beta, varna Mogambo aajayega.’ I bet everyone has heard this dialogue in their childhood.
10- Amrish Puri as Bhairo Nath in Naagin
How can we forget Bhairo Nath’s epic dialogue, ‘Aao Kabhi Haveli Par’.
