The Gabbar Singh character was actually inspired by the character Jabbar Singh played by Vinod Khanna in Mera Gaon Mera Des

Gabbar Singh squashing an ant to indicate how they killed that Sachin char, is totally inspired or paying homage to the scene where El Indio does the same in For a few $s more

The whole point of a villain in these movies is that he leaves an indelible mark on the viewer with his dialogue delivery and/or costume.

Jabbar Singh ( and Gabbar Singh) were supposed to brash and despotic. 

 

We don't like the smart villains in our movies, we just elect them instead. :dontknow:

 

Also, I attached some really bad re-mix version of the song. Exactly what @riya mentioned in the other thread.

The song is very humable. And the strong glaring by Laxmi Chayya and Dharmendra. Mashallah, if only looks could kill.

 

PS: That Indio guy has nothing on Gabbar Singh. Even the name sounds like a dye, and not that of a mega villain.

Occasionally I read the Inquilab. The Urdu press is basically a joke and most of the stuff they churn out is outrageous, except a few editorials and their HILARIOUS movie reviews. They have recently started a word of the day thing. Where they take up a word and go through its etymology.

 

The word for the day was: mawali

It comes from the fact that most of Shivaji Maharaj's soldiers were from the Mawal region/tribe. And the Mughals used the word mawali for them. But back then it didn't have the negative connotation that it does now and meant people who were sinewy and lithe. A generation after the death of Shivaji Maharaj, when the Marathas became brigands and plundered farms and cities the word mawali assumed its current meaning: ruffian. And that is the meaning that stuck.

Also re-villains; Bollywood has had some really strange names for villains

 

Mogambo

Dr Dang

From Bollywood's context, maybe, but Dang is not an uncommon last name, while Mogambo (the greatest) was a film starring Clark Gable:

 

 

 

which was a remake of Red Dust, which also has Gable in the leading role:
