10 Most Iconic Lines of Bollywood Villains
Growing up, we all saw the Bollywood movies with the most iconic villains and still to this day, we remember their famous dialogues. Villains of nowadays seem so tame compared to Gabbar, Mogambo or Prem Chopra of the old days. Some of these actors will be remembered forever by their iconic lines uttered when they were portraying the bad guys. Looking back on them now, we can’t help but laugh at the silly lines that seemed scary back then.
1. “Arre oh Samba, kitne aadmi the?” – Gabbar (Sholay)
Who can forget the legendary Gabbar and how he made every dialogue iconic. Lines like “yeh haath humko dede Thakur” and “ab tera kia hoga Kaliya?” are just some of his dialogues that we will always remember and laugh at.
2. “Mogambo khush hua” – Mogambo (Mr. India)
90s kids remember saying this line so much for everything that some may even still use it. In a time when “memes” were not trending, this was the closest thing to a meme we all had.
3. “Aankhen nikaal kar gotiyan khelunga” – Crime Master Gogo (Andaz Apna Apna)
The film itself was iconic because of its amazing comedic value but Shakti Kapoor’s character brought a whole new genre to life; comedic villain. From his Dracula-esque cape, sunglasses, slicked ponytail and timing, Crime Master Gogo will hardly ever be forgotten.
4. “Prem naam hai mera, Prem Chopra” – Prem Chopra (Bobby)
After this dialogue, nobody dared to forget who Prem Chopra was. James Bond who?
5. “Sara sheher mujhe Loin ke naam se janta hai” – Din Dayal/Lion (Kalicharan)
The actor played many iconic villainous roles but none were as unforgettable as this one where he seemed very proud of his alter ego.
6. “K-K-K-K-K-K-K-Kiran” – Rahul (Darr)
Probably the only Rahul Shahrukh Khan played that did not charm every girl into dreaming about him. The obsessive compulsive character is still etched into our brains and reminds us to stay away from boys who can’t take no as an answer.
7. “Bad Man” – Kesariya Vilayati (Ram Lakhan)
Gulshan Grover made the simple phrase so iconic that it is now synonymous with his character. The way he says teh line is what makes it so great.
8. “Mera naam hai Bulla … rakhta hoon khulla” – Bulla (Gunda)
This masterpiece seems like something we made up but this was the actual dialogue of this Mithun Chakraborty film that came out 1998. Apparently keeping change made him scary for some reason.
9. “Yeh zahreeli gas dheere dheere mehfil ko aur rangeen banati rahegi” – Shakaal (Shaan)
Other than his questionable knowledge of chemistry, we have to give it to him for keeping a shark as a pet. This villain scared us with his deadly pets and the stone look in his eyes.
10. “Nayak nahi khalnayak hoon main” – Ballu (Khalnayak)
Cementing himself as the best antihero and the most memorable one in Bollywood, Sanjay Dutt’s dialogue is still as iconic today as it was back then. Who can not love a character as amazing as this?
