You Might Have Totally Misunderstood These 12 Movies

Showbiz Apr 25, 2016

The majority of Hollywood and Bollywood movies have a meaning and message behind them, but sometimes those messages are easy to misread or misunderstand.

We put together a list of 12 movies that viewers have misunderstood.

1. Darr (1993)


Shah Rukh Khan's character, Rahul, was seen as infatuated, but in reality, he was stalkerish and psychotic.

2. American Psycho (2000)


Starring Christian Bale, this movie by no means supported violence. The message was about condemning violence.

3. Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006)

The message in this Bollywood star–packed film was about making decisions without any consideration of the consequences. It wasn't preaching infidelity.

4. 500 Days Of Summer (2009)

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character, Tom, was selfish and slightly obsessive — not exactly the ideal lover!

5. Luck By Chance (2009)


This movie was about ambitious, driven people. Not aspiring Bollywood actors.

6. Inception (2010)

Leonardo Di Caprio's Inception left people guessing the real ending, but British director Christopher Nolan said, "I want you to chase your reality."


7. Raavan (2010)

Starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and hubby Abhishek, Raavan touched on concepts of righteousness. It wasn't just a re-telling of the Ramayana.

8. Jane Eyre (2011)


Michael Fassbender's character, Rochester, was rude and selfish — the opposite of gentlemanly!

9. Raanjhaana (2013)


This film starred Sonam Kapoor and Dhanush. Dhanush's character, Kundan, won many hearts, but he was actually quite obsessive.

10. Gravity (2013)

Starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, Gravity wasn't just a sci-fi space movie. It was a story about winning against all odds.


11. Haider (2014)

Haider wasn't just an adaptation of Hamlet. The Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor picture also touched on the situation in Kashmir. 

12. Highway (2014)


Alia Bhatt's character, Veera, suffers from Stockholm syndrome. She doesn't fall in love with Mahabir, played by Randeep Hooda
