If there are no bad films, we probably wouldn’t really enjoy talking about the good ones. So you see, even unexciting movies are important. Here’s listing down six such films from the year so far!
1. Bombay Velvet
The film was a grand fare in every sense possible, yet it fell terribly short of casting a spell on us. Despite being helmed by Anurag Kashyap, a huge ensemble flick and a fairly decent show of performances by them all, Bombay Velvet left no impact on our minds and became an unforgettable movie with absolute ease.
Tevar lacked tevar, to say the least! The action drama left us unsatisfied and exhausted. Add to that, the film’s intolerable length that seemed like forever as we sat to watch the flick!
A genius of a director was getting the acting stalwart Amitabh Bachchan and the South sensation Dhanush together. What else did we need? Well, a compelling story and crisp screenplay. And Shamitabh lacked both from the word go.
4. Dolly Ki Doli
Sonam Kapoor played a season con artist who targeted young bachelors, entrapped them, wooed them, married them, drugged them on the wedding night and ran away with all their wealth. While the plot was pretty interesting, the screenplay lacked conviction. There were too many loopholes and gaps that left us frustrated as the story unfolded. The film that could have rocked the cash registers, was reduced to be bad cinema for all its flaws.
Horrible is the word to explain this film in one word! An amateurish attempt by the makers, Roy had nothing it should have! While Ranbir Kapoor in his extended cameo looked like making efforts to make his part stand out and failed miserably, Arjun Kapoor tried his best but couldn’t go beyond making us yawn. Jacqueline Fernandez was simply a misfit. And let’s not even talk about the screenplay – it was that bad and draining!
6. Mr. X
A sci-fi thriller? Like, really? Do you remember the 2004 supernatural thriller, Gaayab, starring none other than Tusshar Kapoor in the lead role? Well, my point is, the makers of Mr. X learnt no lesson from Gaayab and presented their project with as much laziness and illogicality as they could.
