Bollywood Badmashes

Bollywood Badmashes
The bad men of Bollywood had all the fun until the hero realised that he too can get a little naughty. Always on the losing side at the climax, but their meanness won the hearts of the audiences. Hindi film villains usually came in only one size - larger than life. Some of them even overshadowed the otherwise lead characters. Most of you Hindi-filmi keedas would recognise all the villainous voices on the following audio track.

But don't you miss them? I mean the glorious flamboyance of screen villians? They are colourful (Mogambo), funny (Ajith), scary (Pran), iconic (Amjad Khan), and above all unforgettable. Was this meant to be a list of the all time greats? If so, then Jeevan an oldhand whom you can see in some of the older b/w movies should also be added.
