Worst Bollywood Movies in 2019 According to


worst bollywood movies


As the year comes to an end let’s look at the worst Bollywood movies of 2019.

Bollywood has had tremendous growth this decade. From the kind of content-based audience. We have seen a huge transition in the kind of films that are being made.

The last decade was all about commercial masala films. However, this one has been more about content, about stories people connected more to their day to day life.

In the wave of good films like Uri: The Surgical Strike,  Article 15, Gully Boy and Kabir Singh,

Here’s a list of worst Bollywood movies that created a lot of hype but miserably failed to create the magic on screen.

1. Dabangg 3

worst bollywood movies

 The darling of the frontbenchers has repeated the gig so many times over in slow-motion, presuming schlock like Dabangg 3 will carry forward Chulbul Pandey’s legacy is beyond foolhardy.

In the latest, auto-piloted by Prabhudeva but the only thing he bares is desperation to succeed. Who wanted to know the flashback of a love story?

2. PM Narendra Modi

worst bollywood movies

With a landslide win in 2019 Lok Sabha Elections, Narendra Modi has become a personality personified beyond average reach. Lots of buzzes were created for the release of the film during the election times.

3. India’s Most Wanted

worst bollywood movies

Arjun Kapoor starer ‘India’s Most Wanted’ is a half-assed attempt at a patriotic movie in which the lead seems as disinterested as the audience would feel. Based on a true story, the film follows a group of officers who arrested terrorist Abdul Subhan Qureshi, of the proscribed organization Indian Mujahideen (IM) who is also referred to as India’s Osama Bin Laden.

4. Total Dhamaal

worst bollywood movies

Indra Kumar obviously knew that he did not have content smart enough to keep the audience gratified so he packed-up this exasperating-slide-into-nonsense with middling stars past their prime hoping to get the audience go into a nostalgia side-trip as the full-on-nonsense plays on.

5. Kalank

worst bollywood movies

A period film set in pre-independence Lahore/ Husnabad, this tragic love triangle is caught in a time-wrap decadent in its aphorisms and retrograde in its messaging with a script that seems altogether fallacious.

6. Student of the Year 2

worst bollywood movies

SOTY2 had been in news for a long time, for the franchise, leading stars, debut star kids and more.

Student of the Year 2 is the second release for the teen drama. Even if the first managed to present today’s bankable stars the second installment failed to impress the audience and critics.

7. Khandaani Shafakhana

worst bollywood movies

Sex-related issues are fast becoming a hot topic in the Hindi film scene. Liberalization, a market economy, globalization may have set the ball rolling but it’s really to the credit of brave filmmakers like Vinod L Rai, Anuraag Kashyap and his Phantom team, the John Abraham-Shoojit Sircar jugalbandi and a few more, that such enterprises have become far more acceptable and therefore successful. ‘Khandaani Shafakhana’ is meant to tap into the same largely unexplored vein but the thought-processes governing its writing or treatment have neither lucidity nor the coherence to make it effective.

8. Laal Kaptaan

worst bollywood movies

Navdeep (NH10, Manorama Six Feet Under) Singh’s latest, is an attempt to tell a dark, period/quasi-historical vendetta tale that’s set somewhere around 18th Century, in North India, after the Mughals were unseated from the region. Singh and Deepak Venkatesh write up a background of historic turmoil replete with East India Company pillage and privilege while framing what exactly happens after the strange-looking apparition, Gosain, a Naga sadhu (Saif Ali Khan) goes on a killing spree.

9. Housefull 4

worst bollywood movies

This is the fourth installment of the mindless Housefull franchise and it’s definitely 4 too many if you ask me. This one, in fact, goes back several centuries, way back six hundred years ago, to the 15th century, to frame its delusional narrative. And it’s far more archaic, exasperating, unforgivably indulgent and mind-numbing than the other three that came before this one.

10. Pagalpanti

worst bollywood movies

Anees Bazmee’s as the title suggests, is an attempted madcap entertainer that is as brainless as he makes them. There’s an invisible but clearly apparent No Entry sign for the brainy here. A multi-star cast film with the well-known faces acting retarded and totally gullible is probably a given in a big-budget mainstream Bollywood enterprise of this kind.

10. Jabariya Jodi

worst bollywood movies

Advertorials have been going to town about the ‘Pakadwa Shaadi’ aka forced marriage theme, central to this film but while watching, you realize that it’s more about the unresolved feelings between the two lead characters than about a social malaise meant as a counter salvo against unreasonable dowry demands.

11. Marjaavaan

worst bollywood movies

It is a film set in present-day Mumbai. Just three minutes into the film and you realize this is not a tongue-in-cheek parody of the problematic film decade, but rather a loud, half-hearted attempt to recreate and celebrate it.

12. Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas

worst bollywood movies

Sunny Deol turned director to launch his son Karan Deol. He even hard sold Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas on all mediums. But the audience verdict wasn’t in the film’s favor due to its outdated plot and poor performances. Guess Karan will have to try harder in his next project.

13. Romeo Akbar Walter

worst bollywood movies

John Abraham’s new-found interest in spy thrillers resulted in Romeo Akbar Walter (RAW). We could not find anything noteworthy in the film.

14. Drive

worst bollywood movies

Bollywood appears to be in a mad rush to jump on the OTT bandwagon, forgetting that Netflix is a streaming service, not a scrapyard to dump undesirable or second rate scripts on. Directed by Tarun Mansukhani (Dostana), the long-delayed was presumably designed as a cut-rate high on senseless glamour, swagger, and swindling.

15. Saaho

worst bollywood movies

Sujeeth’s Saaho challenges that theory by bringing it down even lower in its senseless pursuit of God-knows-what. The movie is excruciating of ignorant disarray and random action between cops and crooks.
