    16. Raj – Baadshah
    17. Arun
    18. Rahul
    19. Rahul
    20. Raj
    21. Ram
    22. Mohan

    Some of these were made easy by the fact that I still haven’t seen all of his work!


  5. I haven’t seen half of the movies but will vote anyway:
    1. PBDHH
    2. Karan Arjun
    3. RNBDJ
    4. Guddu
    5. DDLJ
    6. haahat
    7. JHMS
    8. OSO
    9. Koyla
    10. Yes Boss
    11. Chak De India
    12. Dil Se
    13. Paheli
    14. Asoka
    15. Oh Darling..
    16. Baadshah
    17. One2Ka4
    18. DAH
    19. K3G
    20. Kal Ho Na Ho


  6. Well balanced…11 easy choices, 11 tough choices (harr harr)
    As it is about the hero, I have to choose the character, not the movie…
    Okay, here I am:
    1) Lalit (MM) – more layered than Ajay
    2) Sunil – rather realistic
    3) Surinder – such a lovable man
    4) G.One – yes, a good one
    5) Raj (DDLJ) – more mature than it seems on the surface
    6) Sunder (Chamatkar) – an innocent guy who has to learn some realities
    7) Harry (JHMS) – I love Dev, too, but he is a bit too cynical
    8) Samar – challenging the forces of the Universe (Om “only” challenging the evil guy)
    9) Shankar – from devote to combative
    10) Rahul (Yes Boss) – I wonder, how much Charlie will change…Rahul did
    11) Kabir (ChakDe) – I like Arjun, too, but Kabir tops him with subtlety
    12) Amar (Dil Se) – goes straight to my heart
    13) Raj (RBGG) – oh, oh, The Ghost is special, too, but Raj is the one who changes through learning
    14) Asoka – a powerful portrait
    15) Hero (ODYHI) – I like the movie Devdas, but not the character
    16) Raj (Mohabbatein) – someone with a hidden agenda although I prefer the movie Badshah to Mohabbatein
    17) Arun (One2Ka4) – also hard to choose, but he is believable in his friendship and his struggling with the kids
    18) Rahul (CE) – an immature guy who learns that he is stronger than he thought
    19) Rahul (K3G) – a moving portrait of an adopted son
    20) Raj (CC) – the opposite to an angel
    21) Raj (Dilwale) – I prefer MHN as a movie, but Ram is almost flawless and Raj has to struggle between love and self-respect
    22) Mohan (Swades) – one of his finest characters while Veer is one of his altruistic ones


  7. Great response Claudia! ๐Ÿ‘ Itโ€™s difficult to separate the character from the film but youโ€™ve done an excellent analysis.
