There are heroes who have a dark side. But there is a genre less explored-“villains as protagonists”. Here are a few interesting ones.
He saves his city from a threat he created, almost dying in the act. Uses language in the weirdest way possible (he is not to be blamed). And this guy is too cute to be a villain.
He makes his way to the top and we enjoy his success, lifestyle and him cheating the world. So do we love to see him fall.
He makes a villain look desirable and classy. In case you haven’t notice he drove a ford mustang in the movie back in 1978, a car which is launched now in India. Also, the same role was later played by Shahrukh Khan in a remake in 2006.
This one thief in Delhi escaped the jail numerous times. Later he turned out to be quite interesting character to be shown on screen as a protagonist. Don’t draw conclusions the real name is not lucky.
Frank Abagnale jr.
Another Leo character made it to the list. This con artist starts using his talents from school days, fools an airline, a hospital and later helps the FBI to catch people like him.
Vijay Dinanath Chauhan
We still remember this pose and the dialogue that comes after. A remake was done for this too. The character in itself is so iconic that writing about him will not be right. It is better you watch Agneepath.
From a sadistic super villain, who handles a shark with one hand to a warm-hearted father to three girls and the minions.
A Robin-hood kind of a smuggler, helping the poor. All he did was get money to the poor. He gave them clothes. He educated the poor at his expenses. How is he bad then? And what was the government doing then?
