What are some of the worst Bollywood remake of Hollywood movies? For a long time, Indian movies have been making remakes of Hollywood’s greatest blockbusters. Some of the directors succeed in putting forth a worthwhile movie while others make it so horrible that people cringe hearing its name.
Top 5 worst Bollywood remake of Hollywood movies
Here are the 5 worst movie remakes of Hollywood which will make you cringe just by hearing the name.
1) PLAYERS was the worst Bollywood remake of Hollywood movies
This worst movie is a remake of the blockbuster movie “ITALIAN JOB” released in 2003. Players are a disgrace to the Italian job; you have a wannabe actor, 2 hackers,2 thieves magician, and explosive expert to fulfill the dream of their mentor Victor Braganza. The movie lacks direction, acting skills, and the story is very sappy topping the movie list. I am sure the writers and director of the Italian job must have gotten a brain aneurysm with this remake. Cars made out of gold? Like seriously? A bit too much don’t you think?
2) BICHHOO was also one of the worst Bollywood remake of Hollywood movies
This movie was released in 2000 was a shabby remake of the movie “Leon-the professional”. Except that the little girl from Leon is 22 years old in these movies, almost 70% of the movie is completely dubbed from Leon. The director made so many faults that cannot be neglected and to top it off there is bobby Deol dancing in it making it the worst movie. I mean wow how much can a movie suck. The worst thing is the last scene of the movie I mean is he a superman? Cause no normal human being can jump out of an explosion and fly like that.
This movie was released in 2007 and it was the Bollywood remake of Hollywood movies “Cellular” which was released in 2004. Apart from the fact that the director couldn’t even wait for a few years before making this movie, the acting was so bad in the movie that it made people cringe just by hearing the name of the movie. Just by keeping the name of the movie the same as a Hollywood movie and implementing a completely different story of another worst movie, it’s not called original. The ending might have been the most pathetic and totally cliché ending ever, the president’s own son wanted to kill her for power? Come on a little originality and innovation won’t hurt you, people.
4) DIL BOLE HADIPPA
Released in 2009, this movie was the worst Bollywood remake of the Hollywood movie “She’s the man”. The director might have thought that just copying a story from a blockbuster movie will make the remake a hit. Rani Mukerji is playing the role of a girl who wants to accomplish her dreams of playing her favorite sports by pretending to be a boy much like Amanda Bynes, except for the fact that she falls in love with her coach who could be easily mistaken as her son. It sure was the worst movie as, at the start, it is shown that Rohan’s s(Shahid Kapoor) parents are divorced and when his mom comes back to India they are reunited. Cliché much?.
5) CHOR MACHAYE SHOR
This cringe-worthy movie released in 1997 was one of the Bollywood remake of Hollywood movies “Blue streak”. If you think what could be worse than horrible acting and direction are, then the answer is Bobby Deol’s dancing. While ram is romancing with inspector Ranjit, his so-called twin Shaam is dancing around the trees with the cop’s daughter. Seriously dancing around trees? What is this 1960?. And the fact that they kept so many twins in the movie just adds negative points to it. Maybe the director is too obsessed with twins that he kept 2 extra sets of twins just for time pass which ended up as the worst movies.
