5 best Films of Arjum Rampal
While fans have flooded social media with adorable birthday wishes for the birthday boy, we take a look at Arjun’s great films at the box office here
Om Shanti Om (2007):
Playing a full-blown antagonist to Shah Rukh Khan, Arjun gave a knock-out performance as producer Mukesh Mehra who in a fit of rage kills his wife Deepika Padukone and is later snuffed out by her ghost. It is no secret that Arjun’s role was inspired by Pran in Madhumati. Suave villainy was in vogue.
Rock On (2008):
In an ensemble cast of fair-to-fine actors Arjun stood out as the band’s lead guitarist Joe Mascarenhas, torn and tormented, grappling with girlfriend problems, writing songs that no one would probably hear and inventing new excuses for living a lie in the musical band that he called home. Brooding intense and rebellious, Arjun won a richly deserved National award for this performance.
Perhaps Arjun Rampal’s best film to date. In a large cast of stars of every gender and shape, Arjun was stand out as a Sanjay Gandhi doppelganger. As a power-hungry empirical politician there was something distinctly chaotic ,pyscho about the character. Arjun acted and brought out those the dark shades in the political figure without fumbling over the mounds of self-conscious dynastic dynamics that director Prakash Jha had thrown in the way. Incidentally Jha repeatedly tapped the best of Arjun in films like Chakravyuh and Satyagraha.
After the success of ‘Raajneeti’, Arjun Rampal teamed up with ace filmmaker Prakash Jha once again for another political drama titled ‘Satyagraha’ in 2013. Arjun, who featured alongside Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Manoj Bajpayee and many others, but managed to leave a mark with his great on-screen presence. The film which received mixed-reviews went on to earn Rs 55.08 crore at the box office.
We Are Family (2010):
Caught between two great actresses Kajol and Kareena Kapoor, Arjun played a man caught in an extremely difficult situation. He made the character empathetic and dignified but also made sure that he stood his ground in a film that clearly belonged to the ladies. Arjun loves the ladies. But he never lets them take over the show.’
Arjun excelled as a bad guy on the silver screen in this film. While fans have always showered the birthday boy with love, Arjun played the villain in the Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Ra.One’ and almost stole the limelight from the Badshah with his great acting The film which even starred Kareena Kapoor Khan earned a staggering amount of Rs 113.94 crore at the box office and featured a cameo by South superstar Rajinikanth as well.
