Each year, Bollywood churns some disappointing films and 2016 was no different. Bollywood Hungama in this feature presents to you the list of films that were unbearable and wasted people’s time and energy:
Publicized as a porn-com, the film was neither sizzling nor funny. It rested on clichés and a very shabby writing, which became unbearable after a point. The numerous cuts ordered by the Censor Board added to the woes.
It released a week after KKHH 3 and also suffered the same grouse of Censor-cuts. But notwithstanding these cuts, the film itself was a mockery in itself. It seemed that it was made just to present the writer’s list of double meaning jokes. This and sickening display of female anatomy became unbearable after a point.
Fitoor was visually beautiful and mounted on a great scale. But these factors don’t save a film when the script is so unexciting and the chemistry between the lead actors is so thanda. And what exactly was Tabu doing in the film? We should have realized something is wrong with the film when Rekha ditched and opted out.
When the film rests on the idea that a man can find love within 500 steps (and he does find), one can imagine how it is going to eventually turn out. Moreover, the quasi-sex camp in the film was neither convincing nor exciting. Urvashi Rautela was super-hot but it was not enough.
This was a bad sequel to the comic caper Tere Bin Laden. The first half was still bearable but the second half was where the film went all wrong. The manner in which Ali Zafar’s character is treated must have been a big blow to his fans.
The film offered nothing new and moreover, Himesh Reshammiya remaining poker-faced throughout the narrative didn’t help much. And why so loud background music?
Love Games attempts to present the idea of swingers, which hasn’t been touched by any other film. However, the goings-on in the film were laughable. The makers attempted to add a thrill element in the last 30 minutes but it fell flat. Dialogues like ‘You are like so dead…like D-E-D’ further ruined the experience!
Azhar had all the masala required for a great biopic. But they failed to achieve much as they simply touched upon certain aspects of his life without delving much into it. The courtroom scenes were the weakest parts of the movie. It was sad to see Emraan Hashmi delivering one more flop flick
This was in the league of Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3 and Mastizaade – poor writing, objectionable dialogues and amateurish execution. Naming a sexy maid after Shiney Ahuja was in a very poor taste
When the superhero pushes away the villain into space to fight him out in a ‘pollution-free’ environment, you know that the makers have gone too far in taking the audiences for granted! Moreover, blatantly lifting a sequence from the Hollywood film X Men: Days Of The Future Past was another big blow.
This film could have worked big time 10-15 years ago. But in 2016, there was no scope for Raaz Reboot to make a mark. There was nothing new in terms of scare factor – viewers had experienced it all. No wonder, the BIG suspense was easy to guess in the first half itself.
Arguably, I shouldn’t be adding this film to this list as it’s obvious that this film was made not to entertain viewers but to show Dr Pitaji’s (Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan) greatness. And just like his first 2 films, he does unbelievable stuff – parts the sea a la Moses, fights paagal haathi’s, monsters, giant gorillas and lots more. Yes, he also teaches a lesson to beef eaters. Hope Tannishta Chatterjee never sees this film for Dr Pitaji also cracks a racist joke!
The action and chase scenes of Mirzya were breath-taking. But the film moved at a snail’s pace and the story has been beaten to death hundred times. Harshavardhan Kapoor & Saiyami Kher might be talented but they don’t get a chance to showcase their acting abilities. Even their chemistry was just not great. A waste of 60 crores (or was it more?)
Just why this sequel was made beats me. The storyline was unexciting, the performances were okay and the songs were a huge disappointment. The team went all the way to Meghalaya but the location doesn’t serve an important part of the film. Farhan Akhtar leaving his family & friends for a silly reason further added to the problems with the film. The characters were rarely happy – mostly they were sad, sombre or angry – and that’s how viewers also reacted after watching this film!
Is this made by the same guy who made DDLJ – is what the whole nation or rather the world is asking. The film was riddled with juvenile and clichéd stuff. To top it all, the climax was shockingly pathetic.
The film objectified women and showed a rape scene in the most objectionable manner possible. Ironically, the film released on 4th anniversary of Nirbhaya rape. The movie, moreover, was riddled with unintentionally funny moments and corny dialogues.
Which film out of these was the most disappointing? Do let us know!
