Dilwale Dubbed Worst Movie Of 2015 And 9 Other Bollywood Blunders

Showbiz Apr 05, 2016

At the Eighth Annual Golden Kela Awards, Dilwale took home the award for the worst movie of 2015.

Despite the amazing all-star cast, the movie is illogical — even by Rohit Shetty’s standards. Many film critics thought the movie was too predictable and lacking in plot. Even King Khan and Kajol weren’t able to save Dilwale.

The movie still ended up making more than its budget, so does it really matter if it was a full-on entertainment movie with zero logic? 

While you ponder that question, here’s a list of nine other 2015 Bollywood blunders you want your money back for.


1. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo

Sooraj Barjatya is famous for his family dramas, like Hum Appke Hain Kaun and Hum Saath Saath Hain. However, he failed to capture the same magic in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo with over-the-top sets and costumes, predictable emotions and dialogues, and an unrealistic plot and storyline.

2. Singh Is Bling

Although Singh Is King managed decent popularity, the sequel was another story altogether. The movie was immature — even by Bollywood standards. It was 139 minutes of torture to watch this movie.

3. Calendar Girls

Perhaps director Madhur Bhandarkar tried to make another version of Fashion? The movie was backed by a great idea but failed to capture audiences, even with sexy close-ups of women's bodies.


4. All Is Well

This movie was yet another disappointment. It's sad to see that a film with so much talent would be wasted on forced humour and an equally forced effort to redeem family relationships.


5. Bombay Velvet

Another big disappointment of the year was Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet. The movie was promoted with such promise and expectations but was full of clichés and predictability.


6. Ek Paheli Leela

Well, who needs a plot and a story when you have sexy Sunny Leone in the movie? The movie was more about unoriginal dialogues and vulgar dance moves with too much skin.


7. Roy

This was yet another predictable plot story, although the director tried to make it unique. The movie was a lazy attempt at what could have been exceptional.


8. MSG: The Messenger

Gurmeet Singh Ram Rahim debuted in this movie as an actor, director and writer. The movie was a jumble of so many things that it was hard to decide exactly which reaction to have. Here's hoping he won't try an experiment like this again.


9. Tevar

Another movie with great talent and promise, Tevar delivered a whole lot of disappointment. There isn’t much plot in the movie to begin with, and whatever story there is, it’s, well, predictable.
