4 Popular movies I hated

I strongly belive a good movie is a matter of perception, different people have different choices. There are many cases when a movie is not liked most of the people but you might love them and there are also cases when people love the movie but you tend to hate them e.g. My mom didn’t like Rang De Basanti and my Bua hates Munnabhai M.B.B.S. on the other hand our very own @filmigirl loves Tashan. Similarly there are many popular movies which I have hated and here are 4 movies which top the list.

(In no particular order as I hate all of them with same amount of disgust)

Fanaa: I still remember dragging my friends forcefully to watch this movie and also remember that despite the fact that we were 15 mins late we went to watch the movie. My friends still curse me for taking them to watch it and I don’t blame them. The movie’s story wasn’t that bad but the way it was executed was really awful. I remember the scene when Rishi Kapoor accidentally falls from the cliff, I know it was meant to be a thrilling sequence but it brought me into splits. And the less said about the acting the better, every time Aamir uttered those 3rd class shayari’s I cringed and his mamu jaan was more of a joker than a villain, the only saving grace was Kajol who as always was a dream to watch but alas! she wasn’t enough to save the movie for me.

Love Aaj Kal: Another movie I dragged my friends to watch and  I know God won’t give me mercy this time. I could sum up the whole movie in one word BORE! The Deepika-Saif track was so horrible that even the sweet sepia story wasn’t able to uplift the movie for me. Deepika as usual can never say a word without that absurd style. That dialogue to Rahul Khanna “Hamare beech kuch atak gaya hai” was so unintentionally funny and the sequence in which Saif realises he actually loves Deepika was the biggest WTF!! moment of the movie. Seriously Imtiaz stick to rom-coms!!!

Devdas: I strongly believe that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is the most over-rated director ever. He might be able to churn out good performances (read Black), but when it comes to story-telling he falls flat. This movie had every thing going against him except Madhuri. Ash shrieked to her fullest, SRK hammed it up to T (a daring thing for me to say that), screenplay was snail paced, his changes made very little sense, I can go on forever. This movie SUCKED so much that it can give porn stars a run for their money in sucking department.

Vivaah: I don’t like Ekata Kapoor type serials so it’s obvious that I won’t like this movie. I mean where the hell in this whole UNIVERSE do u find such people who are either white as milk or black as bat??? I know a lot of people of people who love this movie as it was about good sanskaars n all that stuff but I just want to say can’t it be shown in a better manner I mean why those OTT dialogues and toooooooooooo good to be true charachterisations. Even the music was pathetic with tunes that are so outdated that even Prithivi Raj Kapoor would hav found it old fashioned.

Dis-Honourable Mentions: Dhoom 2(The only movie in the history I fell asleep in between), Gadar, Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani.

This is completely personal opinion feel free to disagree. Tell me your own choices will love to know about it.
