This was a difficult year for the movie industry and movie aficionados all over the world. As the theatres remained shut during the latter half of the year, the movies moved to the digital space and the audience was spoilt for choice. While Bollywood has now realized that ‘Content is the king’ owing to the tough competition with OTT platforms, not every filmmaker followed suit. Some movies were still stuck in the pre-common sense era where the stories made no sense and were bound to leave the audience questioning logic.
Here are some films that you will regret watching and we suggest you should skip so you can avoid getting a headache -
Mrs. Serial Killer
Starring Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead, this crime thriller can be best called as a spoof, not a movie. You know the story is really a fail when even Manoj Bajpayee, who has a pivotal role, can’t clean up the mess the film was. The only suspense the audience really got intrigued about was the fact that why the movie was made in the first place. Viewers claim punching yourself in the face hard is a less painful experience than watching this.
Even Akki fans were left scarred by this film which was once one of the most anticipated movies. A messed up remake of Kanchana, a hit Telegu movie. Many slammed the movie for making a caricature of trans-women and some for glorifying superstitious belief. Even judging by the parameters of a brainless comedy, the movie fails miserably in spite of a stellar ensemble cast. It’s 2020, it is time we give these stereotypical and outdated content a break.
If you are one of those who actually saw this movie on the OTT platform, you have our condolences. Apart from killing your time and internet data, this movie also kills the last two brain cells of the Indian audience trying to figure out why Mahesh Bhatt thought this was a good idea. Sanjay Dutt, Alia Bhatt, and Aditya Roy Kapur have two expressions throughout the film. The plot and character are stuck in the ’90s, the film should be titled the ‘Road Not To Be Taken’.
Freshers Ishaan Khatter and Ananya Pandey’s Khaali Peeli is a must miss. This movie seems like a montage of masala movies from the ’70s and ’80s and the story just keeps forgetting the concept of logic the further it proceeds. One of the songs, Beyonce Sharma Jayegi was slammed for pro-colorism lyrics and was renamed to Duniya Sharma Jayegi, same is the treatment to the movie which is a poor rip-off tweaked by the director but is hardly unmissable. The film is aptly titled though, as this is exactly how the audience’s brain feels after watching the movie - Khaali.
