How Irrfan Khan redefined love and the perception of the Right Man?
When it comes to romance in Bollywood, it is hard to imagine someone else other than SRK. He has personified love and romance, right? Romance in our imagination is about beautiful locations, mountains, pickup lines and hero doing all the right things to impress the heroine. But do you think ‘Real Mai bhi Aisa hota hai’? Everyone is different and sometimes the right guy will come across a man who is weird, confused, funny but has his heart at the right place. Today, we are remembering Irrfan Khan and here are a few characters that he played and completely changed the definition of the Right Guy. Be it, Rana, in Piku to Yogi in Qarib Qarib Single, his unconventional romance left us awestruck. Let us take a look at his characters.
1.Monty – Life in a Metro
It was Irrfan Khan’s character that received a lot of love from the audience. It is the main reason why we still love to watch the film whenever it is aired on television. Monty just redefined the right man. The guy was sweet, cute, confused and has an adorable sense of humour. The way he explains things to Konkana in the film made us realize all we need is Monty in our life. Monty’s romance was cute, interesting and refreshing.
2. Rana – Piku
Rana was not an ideal lover but he had his heart in the right place. He loved Piku but wasn’t sure. His sarcasm left a mark on us. It is never easy to steal the limelight when you are working with megastar Amitabh Bachchan. It was Irrfan who did that. Nobody could have pulled off the character of Rana better than him. Piku and Rana’s love story was fresh and cute. It was during the drive when they actually get to know each other. He understands why she is stubborn and Piku realizes he is not a jerk. Piku has responsibilities, Rana disappointments. His wife leaves him and his previous job turned out to be a nightmare. The film was all about hinting that Rana has feelings for Piku. In the 2 –hour long movie, the line between hinting and confession was never crossed. He was adamant when it came to confessing his feelings but he didn’t shy away from showing compassion in the warmest way possible. Don’t you feel we all should Rana in our life?
3. Jogi Qarib Qarib Singlle
One of the best love stories we have watched in the past few years. Set on two adults Yogi and Jaya, the film is a delight to watch. We loved Irrfan’s character. Like a regular romantic hero, he does nothing to impress Jaya. He often cracks weird jokes and talks a lot. He misses the train and always brag about his ex-girlfriends. But he knows Jaya is the one for him. Their hatke love story will keep you hooked till the end. Yogi’s stupid jokes and unconventional ways of expressing love is the major takeaway of the film. He doesn’t take things seriously but wants to seriously win Jaya’s love.
These were our favourite romantic characters of Irrfan Khan. He redefined the right guy and gave us some refreshing and hatke love stories. These characters left a mark in our hearts and made us believe that Right Man not only comes with Violin, beautiful background, he can also come with confusion and sarcasm. He can be cute as well as vulnerable. Irrfan Khan will always be remembered for his great performances and will stay in our hearts forever.
