The love for films has forced us to tolerate all sorts of cheesy Bollywood romances to horrible Hollywood plot lines, from irrelevant item songs to over exaggerated emotions in Lollywood films. We’ve seen it all and we wouldn’t want you to go through the same torture that we experienced.
Therefore, here’s a list of 7 movies, that we’ve regretted watching!
7. Made of Honor
Directed by: Paul Weiland
Produced by: Neal H. Moritz
Actors: Patrick Dempsey and Michelle Monaghan
Made of Honor is a typical love triangle, the best friend realises his love for the girl when she gets engaged to someone else. The only thing keeping the audience entertained is Dempsey’s acting and the beautiful Manhattan and Scottish countryside.
Directed by: Vikas Behl
Produced by: Anurag Kashyap
Actors: Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt
Don’t let the name, Anurag Kashyap fool you. Despite being the first destination wedding movie of India, it has nothing but breathtaking and picturesque locations. The story does try to talk about some issues like fat shaming, but the arguments are weak. Full of lame jokes, the movie is anything but “Shaandaar.”
5. Failure to Launch
Directed by: Tom Dey
Produced by: Scott Aversano and Ronald M. Bozman
Actors: Matthew McConaughey and Sarah Jessica Parker
Extremely predictable and horribly scripted, Failure to Launch has nothing but Matthew McConaughey’s good looks. This movie is nothing but a forced comedy, where Matt gets bitten by some insanely benign creatures like dolphins and Chipmunks. Despite having an amazing cast, it failed to actually get to the point where it could grab the audience’s interest.
4. Badrinath ki Dulhaniya
Directed by: Shashank Khaitan
Produced by: Karan Johar
Actors: Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt
This is yet another Bollywood flick by KJo where Varun Dhawan tries to be the lover boy, uneducated with a wealthy background. Agreed, that the story does talk about issues like dowry and supports ambitious and career oriented women. However, it does not have a solid argument and can be argued against easily by the masses.
3. Karachi se Lahore
Directed by: Wajahat Rauf
Produced by: Wajahat Rauf
Actors: Shehzad Shaikh, Ayesha Omar, Javed Shaikh, Yassir Hussain.
Although having a stellar star cast, the movie looked more of a theatre play. From the punch lines to the lame parodies, it is nothing close to how a movie works. Though they do bring the comic relief through Moti’s stammer. However, all of these things become redundant and the audience cannot help but wish that they never opted to watch the movie in the first place.
2. Bride and Prejudice
Directed by: Gurinder Chadha
Produced by: Gurinder Chadha
Actors: Ashwariya Rai and Martin Henderson
An Indian version of a classic Pride and Prejudice can make anyone who truly loves the iconic movie cry their hearts out. It’s a complete cringe-fest! One cannot imagine Darcy doing the Punjabi ‘bhangra’. It’s a typical Bollywood masala rather than being a beautiful classic romance. Honestly, the ghost of Jane Austen might come to haunt Gurinder Chaddha one day.
1. Dekh Magar Pyaar Se
Directed by: Asad Ul Haq
Produced by: Ali Murtaza
Actors: Humaima Malick and Sikander Rizvi
Honestly, don’t watch it! The audience had great expectations from Madam Noor Jehan’s grandson, but all he sadly didn’t live up to it. With a poor plot line and character development, it seemed like a bunch of commercials jumbled up together.
