It is now December, and another year is about to end. So now it’s time to get the report out to check out the green and red marks out there when it comes to movies. Before we share our favorite and also not-so-favorite movies of the year, let’s first take a look at what IMDb has to say about Bollywood this year. Although the industry has failed to create a good cinema compared to its regional cousins, it has made a lot of noise, some good, some bad. A few films made it to theaters, but most made it straight to our homescreens with direct OTT output. Jai Bhim: Acclaimed Suriya Film Named to IMDb’s 250 Top Rated Films; Soorarai Pottru also among the 8 Indian films on the list.
In this special report, we take a look at seven Bollywood movies that were ranked among the worst according to the IMDb rating this year. Whether you agree with the ranking or not, please share your thoughts in the comments section below:
Starting the list in descending order …
The Train Girl (2021)
Parineeti Chopra in The Girl on the Train
IMDb Rating: 4.4
The remake of Emily Blunt’s thriller, an adaptation of a novel of the same name, The girl on the train had Parineeti Chopra in mind. While the novel and its Hollywood adaptation aren’t in the top leagues, the lukewarm Bollywood remake makes them look like masterpieces. The Girl on the Train movie review: Parineeti Chopra’s Netflix thriller is a shallow remake with a surprise ending.
Parineeti Chopra in Saina
IMDb Rating: 4.3
Looks like IMDb voters really hate Parineeti Chopra. The actress’ second film on this list is the biopic of badminton champion Saina Nehwal. Directed by Amol Gupte, Saina is a decent biopic, so its entry among the worst movies is a surprise. Whereas even worse films have managed to escape the cut. You look, Satyameva Jayate 2!
Rajkummar Rao, Janhvi Kapoor and Varun Sharma in Roohi
IMDb Rating: 4.3
The horror comedy, starring Rajkummar Rao, Janhvi Kapoor and Varun Sharma, attempted to replicate the hit formula of Street who came a few years ago. But other than a few slightly funny comedy scenes, Roohi left the audience unimpressed enough to score low.
Sardar Ka Grandson (2021)
Arjun Kapoor and Rakul Preet in Sardar Ka Petitson
IMDb Rating: 4.2
The Wellness Saga, starring Arjun Kapoor, Neena Gupta, Rakul Preet, Aditi Rao Hydari and John Abraham, released direct on Netflix. While the story is interesting – that of a grandson trying to bring his grandmother’s house from Pakistan to India – it was the execution that disappointed us. Sardar Ka Grandson movie review: Neena Gupta becomes savior in half-baked Netflix movie by Arjun Kapoor and Rakul Preet.
Bunty Aur Babli 2 (2021)
Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji in Bunty Aur Babli 2
IMDb Rating: 3.6
The sequel to the 2005 film Bunty Aur Babli commits the first cardinal sin of replacing Abhishek Bachchan with Saif Ali Khan as Babli. Second, the film lacks the charms of the original, including a killer soundtrack, although the cast gives the roles their best. Bunty Aur Babli 2 movie review: Rani Mukerji, Saif Ali Khan, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Sharvari Wagh add infectious charm to this weak scam game.
Hungama 2 (2021)
Meezaan and Shilpa Shetty in Hungama 2
IMDb Rating: 3.1
Boy, 2021 has been really bad for the sequels. Technically, Priyadarshan is Hungama 2 is not a direct sequel to his hit Hungama, but rather tell a new story, this time rehashing his own Malayalam hit Minnaram. However, the director fails to adapt the film to the current settings and the comedy turns out to be terrible instead of entertaining. Hungama 2 Movie Review: Dear Mohanlal Fans Stay Away From This Outdated Minnaram Remake, Starring Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Meezaan Jafri.
Salman Khan and Parineeti Chopra in Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai
IMDb Rating: 1.8
In view of its dismal rating, there is little doubt that Radhe is the Race 3 from 2021. An abysmal remake of the Korean thriller Outlaw, Salman Khan and Disha Patani‘s film suffers from rambling storytelling, crankiness, terrible acting, and ridiculous action sequences. Now that Outlaw 2 is ready for publication, just hoping Bhai doesn’t find any crazy ideas there.
