A Protagonist is not a hero without a villain and that's where the villain plays one of the most important parts of a picture. And as we celebrate the auspicious occasion of Dusshera, a festival of victory of good over evil, we have also witnessed some villains in movies that are no less than raavans and we can't forget them for their spectacular performances. So, today, as we celebrate the victory of good over evil, here presenting some terrifying Raavans of Bollywood who stole the limelight from the heroes & became the highlight of the movie -
Jageera (China Gate)
The character of Jageera of 'China Gate' ie Mukesh Tiwari, is one of the strongest villains who feeds human flesh to vultures, lives in ravines, filthy beard and hair like big demons, and played his villainous role has done a remarkable job.
Rakesh Mahadkar (Ek Villain)
Ritesh Deshmukh's character as Rakesh in Mohit Suri's Ek Villain is one of the most horrifying raavan of Bollywood who satisfies himself by killing ladies who talk discourteously to him.
Gabbar Singh (Sholay)
The credit of bringing a purely ruthless villain on Indian cinema goes to Amjad Khan, who with his portrayal of dacoit Gabbar Singh in 'Sholay' stole the show. The great actor gave rise to a wild, visceral monster, who is still unbeaten by any other character.
Remember the dialogue 'Mera Naam Hai Bulla, Rakhta Hu Main Khulla' from the film Gunda! He is one of the most memorable villain, one glance at the evil Bulla and you will be convinced that he is a devil in the film.
Alauddin Khilji (Padmaavat)
Sanjay Leela Bhansali 's 'Padmaavat' is known for his stellar performances but it was Ranveer Singh in the role of Khilji who was the highlight of the film. One glance at him and one can see the abashed, horrifying, killer Khilji.
Gokul Pandit (Dushman)
Aashutosh Rana's character as Gokul Pandit in Dushman is the scariest of all. Aashutosh Rana is still remembered as his commendable role as the psycotic postman in the Kajol starter film Dushman.
Prem Chopra did his best while playing the character of a sleazy, manipulative younger brother or a leery uncle. Bobby's iconic dialogue 'Prem naam hai mera... Prem Chopra' helped him to show his over-the-top villainy.
Mogambo (Mr. India)
The baddie of Hindi cinema who had the power to terrorise audience with merely his roaring voice and rigorous looks was Amrish Puri. In 80s, he became an iconic star of Hindi films and rose to prominence after the release of 'Mr. India'. In the film, he played a super villain Mogambo and his phrase 'Mogambo khush hua' became one of the best recognised lines in Bollywood.
