2018 gave us some really great Bollywood movies and it was a delight to be at the movies. But there were some that we expected a lot out of and didn’t perform and live up to our expectations as much. 2018 started off with the promise of some epic and never-before-seen actor combinations but turns out not all that glitters is gold. So, in case you had missed out on some of these movies and are feeling a little bad, worry not because these are movies that anyone could have let slide, even the actors who took up the movies.

So, here are 10 movies that left us disappointed in 2018:

Fanney Khan

This film is living proof that even phenomenal actors like Rajkummar Rao, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and Anil Kapoor can’t make up for a lousy script.

Namaste England

This movie should go back to the 80s. How this movie was even made in 2018 is beyond me. Parineeti, C’mon, you can do better than this, for sure!

Thugs Of Hindostan

This one was a huge let down for us and the actors in it. Who would’ve thought a film with legends like Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan would tank. Not us. No amount of star power could’ve saved this Hindi version of Pirates Of The Carribean.

Race 3

3rd time’s the charm. NOT. Not for this movie franchise that became the butt of every internet joke. Let’s stop at 3 for this, shall we?

Batti Gul Meter Chalu

There was a lot of expectation from this movie, what with the subject matter a topic that needed to be brought to the forefront. Unfortunately, the main theme of the movie kind of got lost in the subplots of the movie.

Satyameva Jayate

Cop and robber chase movies are always fun. Unfortunately, not this one. If you are watching this movie, here are 2 points that might be a saving grace: Manoj Bajpayee and Nora Fatehi’s Dilbar Dilbar. True story.


Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se

We absolutely love watching this trio on screen. But, the movie is another matter altogether. ‘Nuff said.


The trailer of this movie looked super interesting and it does have Manoj Bajpayee. But, after all the hurdles it faced before the movie hit the theatres, it didn’t manage to win over the critics or the audience.

Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi

The first installment of this movie was a revelation and one super fun Punjabi ride. The second one is another mindless entertainer, sure. But nothing that you’d want to spend 2 hours for, TBH.
