Anti-hero was a new concept which has been gripping up its momentum since the 80’s. The main push this theme got in the 90’s when people remembered the characters of villains, rather than heroes.
These are some of the best anti-hero characters we have seen recently:
S.S. Rajamouli’s ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ was the best movie for the year of 2017. Prabhas and Rana’s acting was appreciated. But this time it was Rana Daggubati who was more captivating in the movie, more evil, powerful, having a fierce look with a huge physique took over everything. The movie was that year’s biggest blockbusters.
None of us imagined this chocolate boy will be doing the role of a villain in director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’. Singh played the role of ‘Alauddin Khilji’, this role can be called as the greyest character in 2018. It is for sure that the best villain is going to be none other than ‘Ranveer Singh’, for playing the role of ‘Khilji’.
For the first time we saw him in Sonam Kapoor’s ‘Neerja’ wherein he plays the role of a terrorist and a mad one. His acting, anger, arrogance was appreciated by the Indian audience so much, that it earned him the role of ‘Malik Kafur’ a bisexual character in ‘Padmaavat’, who is in love with ‘Khilji’. This role was also loved by everyone. Recently we saw him in ‘Sanju’, he plays the role of ‘God’, a drug peddler in the movie.
No one knows him but everyone will recognize his face because of his authenticity as a villain. He plays the head ‘Abu Usman’ in Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif’s ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ in 2017. His acting, calmness and posture were very much appreciated by the viewers, this is not something unofficial but his role was more spoken of after people saw his acting.
Which is your favourite anti-hero? Do you think that the grey characters leave a stronger impact?
