Hindi Movies to Avoid
Here are some bad Hindi movies that I had the misfortune to watch. A 1-star rating means that I would unwatch this movie if I could. A 2-star rating means it’s still pretty bad, but (depending on your tolerance level) you won’t feel like you’ve been tortured mentally after watching it.
- Hyderabad Blues 2 (2 star).Silly and aimless but not horrible.
- Bombay to Bangkok (1 star). Why would Kukunoor do this to his own reputation?
- Heyy Babyy (1 star). Akshay Kumar had a few good movies, but seems to be picking only bad ones nowadays.
- U, Me aur Hum (1 star). Tries to be meaningful and talk about Alzheimer’s disease, but is mostly just obnoxiously bad Bollywood masala. Should’ve known as soon as I saw the atrocious Hinglish title.
- Kisna (2 stars). At least there’s some rope Mallakhamb to watch.
- Kites (1 star). The worst thing about this movie is how seriously it takes itself. Loads of unintentional comedy — but not worth watching.
- Dabangg (1 star). Incoherent, disjointed and generally hard to watch.
- Guzaarish (2 stars). Typical Bhansali stuff — self-indulgent, pedantic, un-creative, weirdly monochrome, and resorts to cheap tricks to get audience sympathy. (Black was just as bad.)
- F.A.L.T.U. (2 stars). Apart from being a blatant rip-off of Accepted, it’s got no flow, events seem to happen without any reason, and it’s not funny.
- Student of the Year (1 star). This movie was so bad I had to walk out midway, in spite of going with extremely low expectations (seeing as it was directed by Karan Johar).
