Scriptwriter, poet and lyricist, Javed Akhtar recently said that if we were to make a list of the various villains in Hindi movies over the year we could describe the entire socioeconomic history of our country.
The writer has been part of show business for more than 40 years and said that most of the villains in the 1950’s were landlords, then in the 1970’s all the villains were industrialists and the 1990’s had mafia dons as villains.
The scriptwriter of super hits such as Shaan and Deewar said that today there is no villain in society. It is the ideals that have become the villain.Mr. Akhtar also said that social issues are no longer focused on in movies and he feels that the main reason for that are the many multiplexes that are around now.
