Bollywood is melodramatic, nearly always a bit extra, and has its own flair of doing things that are particular to it. Yes, there are a few things that we typically see in our movies that make us grimace. But there is one point on which we can all agree: they are the same movies that we all consider to be somewhat of a guilty pleasure. Even the most clichéd parts in these movies offer comfort to us when we’re feeling nostalgic.
The introductory scenes of the main characters are unquestionably a highlight of Bollywood movies that are particularly noteworthy. Of course, the first impression on the audience is crucial, and these movies almost always excel in doing that.
Have we really moved past Raj’s entry sequence in the romantic movie Mohabbatein, when he sports this adorable lad look? Absolutely not!
There are, however, a lot of other ‘Hero ki entry‘ scenes that are just too iconic to be forgotten.
1. Shah Rukh Khan in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham
Rahul getting off the chopper in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and Jaya Bachchan’s Nandini nearing the door while holding an aarti ki thali is a scene that will always be over the top but will always be memorable.
2. Hrithik Roshan in Dhoom 2
I’ll wait till you can name another opening scene that was as captivating as the one that introduced Hrithik Roshan’s character, Aryan.
3. Rajesh Khanna in Anand
Anand, played by Rajesh Khanna, is as memorable as the movie itself. He actually was in the movie a bundle of joy, and it was clear from the moment he entered the frame.
4. Ranveer Singh in Bajirao Mastani
Among the most recent movies, this historical drama actually gave the Peshwa the prominence he earned. And the remarkable dialogue, Cheete ki chaal, baaz ki nazar aur bajirao ki talvaar par sandeh nahi karte. kabhi bhi maat de sakti hain, still imprinted in our mind.
5. Salman Khan in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
In Bhansali’s romantic drama, Sameer was undoubtedly one of the quirkiest characters Salman Khan has ever portrayed. The first sequence immediately made the character’s energy and charm fairly clear, and we couldn’t help but admire him.
6. Shah Rukh Khan in Devdas
You become fascinated by Shah Rukh Khan’s character Dev because of the entire build-up to his arrival in the movie. Additionally, the way Bhansali portrays the lead character and his endearing relationship with Paro will make you swoon.
7. Ajay Devgn in Phool Aur Kaante
And this one will always be without a doubt the OG among entry scenes. We can’t help but feel nostalgic because it was so iconic that Ajay Devgn recreated it decades later.
8. Rahul Roy in Aashiqui
In this timelessly iconic ’90s movie, the music, the setup, and the introduction of the romantic hero are all things that could only occur in that era. Because the same-film sequel clearly failed to capture this very same magic.
9. Aamir Khan in Rangeela
Talk about introducing a character subtly—Rangeela did the same for Aamir Khan as Munna. In contrast to the boisterous persona he was, he entered fairly subtly but impressively.
10. Abhay Deol in Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!
Abhay Deol’s persona radiated the same eccentricity as the film’s theme. From his very first scene, Lucky’s nonchalant style was fairly apparent, and the audience felt keen to know more about the character.
11. Aamir Khan in Rang De Basanti
DJ from Rang De Basanti embodied cool, therefore the character’s entry had to fully capture his carefree demeanour. You will still have an adrenaline thrill after seeing this scene today.
12. Amitabh Bachchan in Don
Even though Amitabh Bachchan rarely gives performances that are anything less than remarkable, the original Don who brought the swag to the big screen will always be cherished.
