December has arrived and so has our series of the ‘best of‘ and the ‘worst of‘ lists which we know you’re dying to read! So let’s start with the worst movies released this year. These movies have not only made us cry (because we spent nearly 3oo bucks watching one movie) but they’ve sometimes made us question our sanity. So here’s a list of the worst movies of 2014 which were universally hated by the audience and critics alike – for good reason!
Humshakals was the first movie that popped into my head while writing this. Not only was it horrible on so many levels, it was such a waste of talent! I mean imagine, Saif Ali Khan, Ritesh Deshmukh and Ram Kapoor along with Bipasha Basu, Esha Gupta and Tamannah in one movie and you make that into a 2-and-a-half-hour migraine-inducing feature production costing crores. What a waste!
Directly taking the grand party scene from The Great Gatsby aside, The Xpose could have still been a decent murder mystery, if only the leading actors were not Himesh Reshammiya and Honey Singh. They’re great musicians… but actors?
Another movie which showed some promise but sadly fell extremely short of expectations. It had everything one would want in a rom-com… a good looking actor (with acting in his blood and all), a confident and pretty actress, a director whose brother has made some of the finest movies on romance and an Academy Award winning music director whose music has literally saved movies (remember Rockstar?)… yet Lekar Hum Deewana Dil sucked. As Rajeev Masand rightly said:
“Remember Saathiya? Take that film and drain out the crackling chemistry of its leads, wipe out every genuinely affecting moment scripted by Mani Ratnam, and ask AR Rahman to come up with a lesser soundtrack than the one he composed then. What you’re left with is ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’, a bland, uninspired concoction that is predictable every step of the way, yet plods on for an unforgivable 2 hours and 20 minutes”
Rishi Kapoor, you could definitely do better than trying to get into Kaanchi‘s pants. Forget the horrible acting, the pathetic screenplay and the so-bad-you-want-to-laugh-out-loud dialogues, it was Rishi’s role that made me sad. Really, really sad.
The english title of this Ali Zafar–Yami Gautam flick on IMDB is ‘Total Chaos‘ and that’s what this movie was. Chaos, exactly the way the Joker wanted Gotham to be in The Dark Knight (we all know how horrifying that turned out, right?)!
Shekhar Suman, who directed this movie for his son Adhyayan Suman, plays his best friend. Yes. Also, it’s a direct copy of the 2007 Hollywood movie, Awake. But the role of Shekhar as his son’s bestie is what bothers me the most. The most.
Sadly we all know how Mr. Suman (the older one) is kinda obsessed with staying young, so we shouldn’t be too surprised!
Regressive, boring and a decade too late. Super Nani was a waste of time and a waste of Rekha, which is a shame!
Abhay Deol‘s experiment didn’t really work out for the best. It could have, but it didn’t. One By Two‘s plot was so weak, even Wikipedia doesn’t have a ‘plot‘ section on the movie’s page.
Harman Baweja‘s third or maybe fourth attempt of a comeback… not surprisingly, it didn’t too well. Also bro, if you call a place THE GANGSTER LAND, and expect it to invoke fear in people, no one will take it seriously. Nobody!
Why Bipasha, why? Just because Harman starred in a horrible movie this year doesn’t mean you had to tread the same path!
The critic of Mumbai Mirror gave this movie zero stars. ZERO. He also said this:
I will spend sleepless nights thinking about the families of the unfortunate crew members. It is my job to tell you that the only un-offensive (and interesting) part is the preceding anti-smoking ad. It is also my job to ask the producers to withdraw this from cinemas in the name of public health and safety.
This movie was like the soul sister of The Xpose, only this one was supposedly a comedy (both were really funny in my opinion, but not in the way the makers intended it to be). Mika Singh is a star, but he should know he’s not good at everything, like maybe microbiology, astrophysics and acting! And Shaan, I love you but that blazer just blinded me; I don’t even know what I’m typing now!
Hey Shiv Darshan, the ‘Salman Khan in Tere Naam’ and the ‘John Abraham in Dhoom’ look is over! Didn’t you get the memo? It may perhaps resurface as a trend when some deadly disease contaminates earth and makes us all partially blind.
This movie released in 2014. Yes, it did. I don’t think you’ve seen it, so here’s a gist of the story.
Got this from IMDb! What even…
So what do you think? I can’t wait to land on Punjab and be a part of the fun, masti and innocence of the land. Also, there’s something rather familiar about the main alien (who I suppose is the GOD here). Can’t place it? I couldn’t till Priyam (from Team MM) came to my rescue!
Coincidence? I think not.
Which was the worst movie of 2014 according to you?
