2016 Rewind: 18 Honest Bollywood Movie Posters

If Bollywood would honestly name its movies, this would be their real names


‘Nautanki’ runs through every Indian’s blood and Bollywood does every possible ‘drama’ to give it a boost. The year 2016 wasn’t the best year of Bollywood. This year tonnes of crappy movies were released, some failed to attract the viewers, some failed to make any collection at the box-office, though some did excite viewers, they failed to impress them.

So, to give you a rewind of the year 2016, Bayside Journal decided to recreate a list of movie posters with honest movie titles, because these indeed suit them better than the original ones. Take a look and don’t forget to vote for your favourite one.

1. Befikre


When Aditya Chopra decided to act like a lazy ass, he wrote a movie called Befikre. Bollywood mein mein aisi choti choti baatein hoti rehti ha Mr.Chopra.

2. M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story


If a biography is treated like a hagiography, the movie ends up being called Sant Dhoni: The Man Who Can Do No Wrong. When the producer of the movie is best friends with the person on whom the biopic is based, this will automatically happen.

3. A Flying Jatt


This Indian Marvel movie is epic. This so-called sci-fi will make you question all the superhero movies made till date. As if Krrish wasn’t enough, we now you have another superhero in B-Town.

4. Great Grand Masti


Too many cooks spoil the broth! When the star cast of the movie has, Aftab Shivdasani, Ritesh Deshmukh, and Vivek Oberoi, all in one frame, you know what to expect. We need not say more about this movie: Great Grand Masti was one of the biggest mistakes of the director’s life.

5. Fan


When you get a double dose of Shah Rukh Khan and fans of Badshah still fail to turn up at the theatre, isn’t it heartbreaking?

6. Rock On 2


Rock On 2 was made keeping the viewer’s need in mind. The movie gives you enough time for a loo break, popcorn refills, and also enough time to chat on WhatsApp without missing anything. All you can say is Rock On 2’s Magik is indeed tragic.

7. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil


I am not sure how many liked the movie. But Ae Dil Hai Mushkil surely saved a lot on its marketing and promotion budget thanks to the political parties that made its release so mushkil.

8. Mohenjo Daro


Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daro was so funny that it hurts.

9. Shivaay


If you are craving some mindless action, watch this 172-minute snow-fest. By the way, just letting you know that the movie has nothing to do with Lord Shiva.

10. Raaz Reboot


Be glad that this is the last installment of the Raaz series because you wouldn’t be able to bear another one. However, despite lots of disappointments, there are some things this movie teaches you that you should remember while thinking of ghost hunting:

• If you wear a mangalsutra, evil can’t possess you.
• Evil spirits are not scared of Catholic priests.
• The Gajendra Moksha Stotra (Lord Vishnu mantra) can make the evil spirit leave the body it has possessed.

11. Udta Punjab


This year was the year of controversies and productions’ saving tonnes on their marketing budget. While Pahlaj gave a tough fight to Udta Punjab, he surely made it fly in the box office. Censor di maa di!

12. Housefull 3


If you are looking for a dosage of torture then Akshay Kumar’s Housefull 3 is a must watch.

13. Kya Kool Hai Hum 3


Mr Pahlaj, I am sure this movie reminded you of your previous creations and hence you turned a blind eye to this one. We love sex, but this sex-comedy just fails to turn us on.

14. Kapoor And Sons


Karan Johar and his three musketeers! The B-Town Godfather created a new movie that looked like a contemporary version of Rajshri’s ghar-ghar ki kahaani.

15. Sanam Re


Expensive trip to Ice Age

16. Mastizaade


Trying to figure out what is what? First, Kya Kool Hai Hum and then Mastizaade, B-Town was definitely in need of some desperate action when they wrote these two golden scripts.

17. Dear Zindagi


The philosophy here is free, free, free!

18. Mirzya


This ‘epic’ romance was an epic bore.
