Third WHEELED Characters Shone Impartially In Theaters #A2ZofBollywood

I can’t believe we reached the Last Week of A2Z Challenge 2020, only 3 letters away from the finishing point. Today I have brought some famous characters from Bollywood movies, who might not play the main lead or protagonist in the movie however they have undoubtedly succeeded in imprinting the marks in the hearts of their audience, just like the main characters or I should say sometime overshadowed them.

Here Third Wheel Character refers to the supporting characters from the movie irrespective of the screen time more or less, their character positively or negatively contributed in leading the story to the climax.

So here comes my list of 9 main Third Wheel Characters from the different movies whom we love them or loathe them, we definitely can not forget them.

1). ADVOCATE GOVIND SHRIVASTAVA FROM DAMINI(1993):- Sunny Deol’s impeccable dialogue delivery uplifted the film to the heights of brilliance. We hardly remember any other dialogue from the movie by anyone, it does not mean the rest of them did not perform well, of course, they too were brilliant nevertheless Advocate Govind Shrivastava shined above all. In fact, both his ‘Dhai Kilo Ka Haath’ and ‘Tareekh Par Tareekh’ dialogue is still using by us as a quip even after two decades.

2). RAHUL MEHRA FROM DARR(1993):- A violent Psychological Love story Darr was the first movie in my knowledge where antagonists stole the fan base from the protagonist. The audience was in love of a psycho lover Shahrukh Khan’s performance. Even Lead actor Sunny Deol could not comprehend the fact a mere 2 movies old actor could overshadow him lousily.

3). BHIKU MAHATRE FROM SATYA(1998):- Bhiku Mahatre character has been played by the newcomer of that time Manoj Bajpayee, who made his mark in Bollywood with this character. He got accoladed and appreciated for this character and won the Filmfare Critics Award for the Best Actor and National Film Award for Best Supporting Actor. The main protagonist SATYA was played by the actor J.D.Chakravarthy who definitely did a fabulous job in the movie but the limelight was stolen by the character Bhikhu Mahatre.

DURGA DEVI(Dadi) FROM BADHAI HO(2018):- Actress Surekha Sikri impressed the audience with her spectacular performance as the grandmother of Ayushmann Khurrana in the movie, for which she also bagged her third National Award as the best actress in Supporting Role. Whatever it is either in a furious future concern mother or a supportive mother in law who stands alone to save her pregnant daughter in law from the disgraceful remarks of the society or with her wittiness the actress plays slayed in every way on the screen.

9). ALLAUDDIN KHILJI FROM PADMAAVAT(2018):- Alauddin Khilji a notorious emperor, the moment when Ranveer Singh took entry on the screen no one from the audience could able to take their eyes off him. The way he emoted the lust, greed, betrayal, ambition all together in his walk and talk Ranveer has certainly carved his name in the list of brilliant actors. If I am not wrong after the SRK’s Darr it was the movie Padmaavat where antagonist’s performance overshadowed protagonist.
