Rajni's best negative role?

May 17, 2007

He might be the reigning deity of Tamil cinema now, but there was a time when Rajnikanth used to play the bad guy to the hilt.

Be it Balachandar's 1976 hit Moondru Mudichu, where he plays a character smitten by his friend's girlfriend, or Bharatiraja's 16 Vayathinile, where he is the village loafer, Rajni has played the consummate baddie in style.

With just days to go before his most-anticipated Sivaji releases, jog your memory, dear reader, and tell us what is your favourite negative role by Rajnikanth.
