Bollywood movies that are so bad they’re good

We’ve all seen quite a few Bollywood movies that are so awful that they make you get up and go halfway because you can’t put yourself through the torture of bad acting and a ridiculous plot. Well I’m here to tell you about some other absolutely gruesome movies that are better not to touch. They are so horrible that you will laugh in frustration. You can put them on your “never ~ watch” list or, maybe, on your “I’m-so-drunk-can-do-this-watch” list.

Just warning! This article contains SPOILERS if you’ve never watched these * cough * gems before. I wouldn’t recommend watching them, frankly, but, you do.


Karzzzz (2008)

Reliance Entertainment / Photos of the Sun

This movie is a solid example that no matter how many “ZZZ” you add at the end of an OG movie remake, it will always be crap if Himesh Reshammiya (the actor) has anything to do with it. ! Overly dramatic speeches and ridiculous dialogues made this one unintentionally funny watch! Tandoori Nights still slaps, however.


Humshakals (2014)

Fox star studios

This movie made me roll my eyes to the point of having a headache. The whole principle of “3 pairs of identical-looking people who get tangled up in one way or another” is ridiculous to begin with, then the references to it being a “slapstick comedy “made me tremble with discomfort. If you don’t mind the secondary embarrassment, check out this one!


Prem Aggan (1998)

FK International

Prem Aggan certainly cannot be counted among the most notable films of its time. First, it’s ridiculously long with mind-numbing dialogue and over-the-top acting, and second, the second half is just … SAD! It’s not a bit of a sad emotional movie, but a bit of a sad “wow-it’s-a-movie so poorly done”, which is also laughable. Well, at least it makes us want to EXERCISE! 🎶!

If you like pain, please donate this “hasen dard” a chance.


Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani (2002)

Shankar Films

Twenty minutes after the start of the film, a bride transforms into a skeleton and kills the husband. Another woman is almost assaulted in a girls’ shelter but is saved by Sunny Deol. The whole school then gangs up against this poor woman and forces her to forgive her attackers because, “Ladkon se toh galti ho jati hai” . It was the last straw for me and exactly when I closed it … frankly I didn’t even want to move on to the shape-changing snake part! Maybe you will. Good luck!


Radhe (2021)

Zee Studios / Salman Khan Films

This is another addition to the list of Salman Khan action movies that suffer from a hero complex. It’s quite mundane work, and that’s all I have to say about it. This movie was almost as bad as 2020 and 2021 combined.


Himmatwala (2013)

UTV Movies / Pooja Entertainment

I think I seriously lost a few neurons looking at this one. The movie will take you back to the dark ages of Bollywood with every gruesome, cliché trope that’s been done, like, a million times. Even if I had to watch this movie to save my life, I would choose to die.


Jodi Breakers (2012)

Prasar Visions Pvt. Ltd.

If you are planning to completely waste a few hours of your life, I would ask you to go ahead and watch this movie. But if you value your time, I suggest you stay away, AWAY from this movie.


Welcome to New York (2018)

Magic Movies

I expected better from Sonakshi Sinha and Diljit Dosanjh because they are both good actors! Or maybe it’s just how collectively bad the script, dialogue, and humor in this movie was that I would like to ask – WHY? Just why ?!


Ram Gopal Verma Ki Aag (2007)

RGV Film Factory / Reliance MediaWorks Ltd.

Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag is a supposed sequel to the legendary Sholay but does not compare at all. Plus, no one has given a clear thought to the title, considering the other ways it can be interpreted … The entire film has ridiculous “trippy” cinematography and follows a pretty ambiguous plot line. I’ll call this a snooze-fest for sure, but it’s hilarious when you’re drunk.


Desh drohi (2008)


It’s a cringe-fest, all of you. This one was physically painful to watch and KRK’s utter lack of originality or any form of talent made me want to tear my eyes out. It also made me LOL when I was absolutely not supposed to LOL. I took pity on the lead actress who clearly seemed to be doing her best to keep a constipated smile on her face and be done with the whole movie, ASAP. I can’t blame him! (Although I sincerely hope it isn’t tagged # 2rsppl).


Race 3 (2018)

Films by Salman Khan

this one is like the others bhai movie that has tacky and absurd dialogue, impossible action sequences, awkward dances, and the most ridiculous twist in history. Also, since this is a Salman Khan movie, expect a healthy dose of “sanskaar” and “parivaar“lines added to the mix. After all, bhai dil mein aate hai, samajh mein nahi.


Drone (2008)

Eros Entertainment

A bullet point in the career of Abhishek Bachchan, Drone was the only movie he said he regretted making. And we can certainly see why. It was a time when hype was considered cool, and visual effects were certainly lacking. I’m now going to go wash my eyes and clear my mind after watching this one!


Baaghi 3 (2020)

Fox Star Studios / Nadiadwala Petitson Entertainment

Aah, another headache – another plot filled with insane action sequences and testosterone instead of, you know, a real storyline. This film was made only for Tiger Shroff to show off his acrobatic skills and his chiseled six packs. (I don’t think he likes to wear shirts, tbh).


Love story 2050 (2008)

Baweja Movies

This movie literally made me scream “What?!” in almost every scene it was SO absurd. So where is the logic? The main character’s girlfriend dies, so he insists on traveling to the future (his uncle has a time machine) instead of going back to the past to save her, and ends up meeting his reincarnation. He then tries to make this 2.0 girlfriend fall in love. It’s a great movie to watch again when you just want to burn your brain cells.


Student of year 2 (2019)

Dharma productions

Do I still need to say something? Judging by how unimpressive the first movie was (despite the flourishing career (s) it gave to its tracks), this one takes the boring factor up a notch. I practically winced in embarrassment at every scene! Do you like to torture yourself? Be careful in this case!


Namaste England (2018)

Eros International

This movie is full of plot holes and mistaken messages that no one would (or should) fall for. First, who even thought about doing a sequel to Namaste London, which was mediocre at best? But no, they wanted to spoil it even more with the “willful, selfish wife who challenges her husband” trope. He plays like any other Indian sanskari cliché, where the female lead is determined to make a mistake but ultimately the male lead makes her feel guilty for apologizing to him for how she was ‘wrong’ and how ‘love triumphs’ . Frankly, they should have burned the script halfway through his writing! Besides, no one has heard of passports and enhanced border security in this film?


Khaali Peeli (2020)

Zee Studios / Offside entertainment

It’s a bland movie with horrible acting, a predictable plot, and it didn’t add anything new to my way of appreciating it in the slightest. Honestly, I started to regret my decision halfway through. Khaali peeli annoys kiya!


Mastizaade (2016)

V One Entertainment

I have no words for this one … except maybe – EWWW! Forget the movie, only the three minute trailer is enough to make you absolutely uncomfortable and disgusted! Disgusting adult humor, inappropriate innuendos, racist jokes, unnecessarily sexualized body photos – even for a sex comedy, I don’t know how this one even got past the censorship panel! GRIMACING.


Maar Khan t-shirts (2010)

UTV Movies

If illogical comedy scenes and overplaying gave birth to a child, this would be this movie. Also add songs of objects like “Sheila Ki Jawani”, a weak storyline, no plot at all, and insanely flat dialogue, and you have a recipe for disaster. It will definitely make you laugh and cry in frustration!

There are plenty of other newsworthy and truly awful movies that I couldn’t fit into this post that you may or may not agree with. If you think more, let me know in the comments!
