If there’s light, there’s darkness, if there’s sweet, there’s sour. Similarly, if there are good films, there are bad films. 2018 brought with it its few shares of disappointments and rather massive ones. Let’s have a look at the Worst Films of the Year:-
1. Race 3
Never did we imagine the third film in the Race franchise will unfold in such a terrible, turgid and forgettable manner. Inspiring more memes than memories, the best things about Salman Khan’s Race 3 were the jokes on social media. As for the film, none of our business!!!
2. Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se
Bobby Deol confessed in an interview how sitting at home for over four years made him squirm with discomfort and impatience. He wanted to work and work everyday of his life and never wanted to sit home again. Good! But it seems choosing the right scripts still isn’t his forte. This inconsistent and inconsequential third part of the Yamla Pagla Deewana series was unfunny and unmemorable. Why did the Deols even bother? Oh, as Bobby said, he didn’t want to sit home!
All the bad things this year belonged to Bhai in 2018, it seems! After Race 3 and a brief appearance in YPD 3, he produced and launched his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma in a love story that was forgotten right after the first show got over. Sharma had the looks, the dancing skills and the screen presence. All was needed was acting chops, but if he had them, Bhai would’ve never launched him.
4. Namaste England
If someone were told Srk and Arjun Kapoor went to the same acting school, he would either be slapped or seriously trolled. But that’s the painful truth. Kapoor, who was quite impressive in his debut, collaborated with his first co-star Parineeti Chopra for the second time and trust us when we say this, gave the audiences one of the most excruciating cinematic experiences in years. Why, Vipul Shah, why?
5. Thugs Of Hindostan
A film that brings together Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan should light up the screen, shouldn’t it? And when you have YRF spearheading the production and a magnanimous budget of 300 crores, things shouldn’t go wrong, should they? Well, they did! Director Vijay Krishna Acharya was so enamored by the scale and the stars at his disposal that he turned a blind eye to something called a story. This was a film that created history on Day 1 by collecting over 50 crores, and become history right on Day 2!
