The heroes of the world may walk away with heroines in the end but they are downright minions when it comes to parading swaggerism. The ‘Villians’, however, perch themselves improbably but comfortably in their roles of mean but mod and ritzy men. Here is the list of cinema’s bad boys that are downright stylish:
Johnny Depp as Sweeney Todd
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of the Fleet Street
A man whose unusual rules to wear style are impossible to catch up, Johnny Depp comes as a pariah of fashion. They don’t wear it like that you know. Whilst most versions of Depp have looked nothing less than psychotic, his turn in Sweeney Todd stands out. The white shock on his hair make him look like a zesty demon barber.
Arjun Rampal as Shekhar
There are few good looking men in Indian than Arjun Rampal – a dude down to his boots. There was huge doses of disdain and swagger in his act as Shekhar in this poor excuse of a film.
Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman
The de facto best batman ever has had his murderous stylish turn in the slasher flick American Psycho. He was a killer – pun intended. For an iniquitous soul who kills for pleasure, he is too stylish. And we like it!
Leonardo Di Caprio as Calvin Candie
You always had my curiosity Leo. Now, the raucous you has my attention. All of it. The trailers of Django Unchained started around the same time as trailers of The Great Gatsby. The stark anomaly between his two looks are testimony to the fact that experimentation has found its nest. Leonardo is cap
Steve McQueen as Thomas Crown
The Thomas Crown Affair
What happens when you have billions in your account and nothing to do? You get bored! And if you were Thomas Crown, you’d do something outrageous. You will rob a bank. And all this while, you will look bloody good.
Amitabh Bachchan as Don
He looked debonair in 1981. He looked debonair in 2011. And I wager he would look debonair in 2031. You can’t make Amitabh Bachchan not look good. Not in this life.
Hrithik Roshan as Mr A
The Greek God is on earth. They call him Mr A, aka Hrithik Roshan
Raj Kapoor as Raj
Raj Kapoor’s Raj may not exactly suffice to the tag of ‘bad boy’, but looking at his role on the whole, he indeed was an antihero. A bloody stylish one at that. And boy, that scene RK just turns around, smoking his cigarette and throwing smoke in the air with disdain — that swagger remains timeless.
