Once a movie releases, there is a lot of buzz about the leads of the films, the antagonist and even the supporting cast. However, there have been a few films where characters with less screen time have managed to create a significant impact amongst the audience and added soul to the film.
We at Bollywood Dhamaka have curated a list of special characters from Bollywood who won hearts through their minimal screen time.
See them here:
1. Dr. Rustom – Munna Bhai MBBS
Apart from providing comic relief multiple times in the Rajkumar Hirani directorial ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’, Dr. Rustom’s character is wholesome. He is an ordinary doctor trying his best to live life without any trouble. His encounters with the leads of the movie i.e. Sanjay Dutt and Boman Irani bring out the best and worst in them both.
2. Vasuli Bhai – Golmaal franchise
Apart from Ajay Devgn, Tusshar Kapoor, Arshad Warsi and so on returning to essay their roles in all the parts, another character has been a constant in the Golmaal series and that is ‘Vasuli Bhai played by Mukesh Tiwari. His character always falls prey to whatever scam the leads put him through and the result is always hilarious.
3. Kanta Ben – Kal Ho Na Ho
Although Kal Ho Na Ho starring Preity Zinta, Shah Rukh Khan and Saif Ali Khan is supposed to be a heartwrenching drama, the film made sure it doesn’t get too intense by having hilarious scenes here and thee throughout the film. Kanta Ben is definitely the highlight of the movie who often mistakes Aman and Rohit (played by SRK and Saif) to be in love with one another. Her reactions will always tickle your funny bone!
4. Bob Biswas – Kahaani
In this thriller directed by Sujoy Ghosh, the character of Bob Biswas was so good that everyone often was on the edge of their seats whenever he took over the screen. He played the role of an assassin who is undercover as a life insurance agent. He tried numerous times to kill the lead of the movie, Vidya Balan.
5. Roohdar – Haider
This has to be the greatest cameo of all time. In this movie adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet director Vishal Bharadwaj replaced the supernatural element by introducing the character of Roohdar played by the legendary Irrfan Khan. He is a stranger whose aim is to provide information to Haider (Shahid Kapoor) about his missing father after which he discovers his true calling i.e. revenge.
