Today we celebrate the birthday of the most eminent villain of Bollywood- Amrish Puri. The legendry actor who had marked himself as a versatile artist but best known for his negative roles. He made people fall in love with the evils. The one who made people look good in the bad.
The demons are the ones who make us realize that sometimes you need to be a villain rather than being a hero as the hero is born with the emergence of the cruelty of the villain. It highlights the fact that something is wrong somewhere with someone in society. Amrish Puri became the trendsetter which made a way for other villains to be in the limelight through the accurate delivery of his roles.
The darkness lies within the demons which overpower their soul. They are the faces of dusk. They make us believe that sometimes it’s good to hate and express the hatred and that you have to free yourself from all the chains. He has won our hearts over and over again with the wicked smile, evil grin, and the insanity that is tall enough to represent his act.
He is well remembered for his iconic performances and characters that he not just played but involved himself completely into that character and lived those characters. Taking from Mogambo to Balwant Rai and Thakur Durjan Singh and Chhada in blockbuster films like Mr India, Tridev, Karan Arjun, Damini, Gadar- Ek Prem Katha, Nayak to name a few from the long list.
He made everyone his fan through his extraordinary way of delivering quotes and performing his patent acts. The characters played by him are immortal will always be celebrated in Bollywood. He gave fame to other villains like Gabbar, Shakkal, Dr Dang, and many more.
Today we miss and commemorate the legacy of this beloved villain of Bollywood who will always be alive in our hearts. It is rightly said, “If you want to be bad be bad for a reason” so that it’s worth it.
