Bollywood has always shown us movies are larger than life. Bollywood has always told us we need to escape real life through the tales they spin and the webs they weave. While we are on the same page for the most part, there are some movies which definitely work hard to challenge our intellect. Here are a few movies whose endings are so bizarre, the entire plot of the movie is lost.
1. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
While I am a closeted Kuch Kuch Hota Hai fan, the movie makes no sense. Anjali loved Rahul but Rahul loved Tina and Tina loved him back. They got married, had a child and Tina promptly passed away. Eight years later, Rahul’s kid sets out to meet her namesake who is now engaged to Aman (Salman Khan) who plays the perfect stalker. While the plot seems fairly text book so far, the ending is just very off book. Rahul realises he loves Anjali and Aman just had to give her away at their wedding. What on earth was the entire 2 and a half hours before this about then?
2. Delhi 6
Normal people pass away and go to wherever they are meant to go to. However, not in this movie. Abhishek Bachchan’s character life ends and unlike normal people, he meets his grandfather, eats jalebis with him and then comes back to life like it’s nobody’s business. Meanwhile, Sonam Kapoor and a pigeon share a funny love story. Only Ekta Kapoor has been known to shed a tear or more for this particular film. The rest of us just cried because of the sheer idiocy.
Bollywood has taught us grand gestures are the way to happily forever afters. However, this does not mean the gestures always make sense. Take Parineeta for example. Saif Ali Khan’s character fought against all odds to find his way back to his wife, Vidya Balan. Did he really have to uproot a fountain and do it though? If the wall he broke through was an Ambuja Cements product, the company would have shut down long, long ago!
4. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
This movie taught us a lot of things. The main one being, if he does not love you, then just let him go already! In this movie, however, logic is just lost towards the end. “Did you miss the shot the first time? No problem. Here is another bullet.” This essentially forms the principal plot of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Why Bollywood? Why do you reinforce this stalker like tendencies?
Have you ever eaten a dish thinking it was paneer but it turns out it really was soya chunks? Well, Taalash is exactly like that. What starts off as a pretty interesting crime thriller turns out to be a story about really well dressed, vengeful ghost. Why you do this to us? Just why?
A love triangle and a happy ending is not an uncommon script in Bollywood. However, one gets very Kuch Kuch Hota Hai feels from this particular movie. The only different thing here? The girl gives her best friend the boy. My problem with Cocktail is simple. It is a “cocktail” of a lot of things and the end result is really not appetising. Yech.
Movies like this make us stop and think about all the time we could have spent doing something else. I mean, come on guys, we want entertainment, but we also want a little bit of sense at the end of the road. Right?
Bollywood Films That Show How One Is Never Too Old For Happily Ever Afters
How often have you look at twenty odd year old couples walking hand in hand and not given the idea a thought? However, how often have you watched a movie and suddenly realised the age gap between the leads in not quite what you are used to? Bollywood has tried time and time again to break free from the cliches and set its own rules and today, we give you a list which breaks stereotypes!
1. Akshay Khanna and Dimple Kapadia in Dil Chahta Hai
Even in the early 2000s, when we claimed to be a progressive audience, the idea of a younger man professing his love for an older woman was not the norm. Dil Chahta Hai set the trend for a different world, where Akshay Khanna‘s character subtly showed his love for Dimple Kapadia’s character, an older, alcoholic divorcee. While she did not entirely reciprocate the feelings, the emotions were displayed beautifully!
2. Akshay Kumar and Rekha in Khatron Ka Khiladi
Akshay Kumar’s explosive make out sessions with the older woman Rekha, when on a quest to find his brother’s whereabouts in Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, was all things twisted and steamy. What makes this film so special is the unique pairing of Akshay Kumar and Rekha! Truth be told, there was no way one could have shown these two at a similar age!
3. Anil Kapoor and Sridevi in Lamhe
Lamhe, perhaps one of the most progressive films to have released in Bollywood, showed Anil Kapoor‘s character falling in love with the much older character of Sridevi’s character. What makes this film all the more iconic is how Sridevi’s daughter comes back years after her mother’s death and falls in love with Anil Kapoor’s character all over again! To say no other film managed to reach this level would be an understatement!
4. Konkana Sen Shrama and Ranbir Kapoor in Wake Up Sid
This film has to be one of my favourite movies on this list. An older Konkana Sen Sharma tries over and over again to find someone who matches her expectations, only to realise the true love of her life is none other than the much younger Ranbir Kapoor! Clearly true love has no boundaries, right?
5. Ranbir Kapoor (again) and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil was all about unrequited love, longing and the pain felt by broken hearts. One of the best ways this could have been shown was through Ranbir Kapoor’s and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan‘s relationship. Weird to say the least, the makers stuck to the bold theme all the way through!
One is never too old to love and Bollywood always reinforces this fact over and again! If you think we missed out on any movies which have to be added to the list, comment and let us know!
Kajal Aggarawal And Bollywood Stars Show How To Kiki
Kajal Aggarawal shows us how to do the #KikiChallenge in a safe way. The #KikiChallenge quickly become popular over the internet after Drake released his song In My Feelings from his latest album Scorpion. The #KikiChallenge is when a person dances to the song beside a moving car, while someone is filming it from the car. First the Tide Pod Challenge now this? I’m scared for this generation.
Kajal Aggarawal along with her co star Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas created awareness regarding this dangerous challenge. The actors use a wheelchair instead of a car and end their video with a safety message.
Joining in the bandwagon, better late and safer! Our very conscious version. किकी we लव you (but we love rules more) . . . . . . . . The madness we do on set while shooting an action sequence, with my Star of a partner-in-humour @sreenivasbellamkonda #kikichallenge #inmyfeelingschallenge @champagnepapi #trafficpolice #responsibledriving #responsiblecitizens #dontfollowrandomfads #notattheriskofyoursafety #andnocompromiseonsafetyofothers #allforgoodhumour Video @kishorekotumphotography Dj @apoorva_srinivasan
The Mumbai Police condemned this dangerous challenge by tweeting out their disapproval. The Police later punished three people for participating in the challenge. They got the offenders to clean up the police station.

#ANDHADHUN Starring Tabu, Ayushmann Khurana and Radhika Apte
The first motion poster of AndhaDhun, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Radhika Apte and Tabu just released! The film is directed by Sriram Raghavan co produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Matchbox Pictures, is set to release on 5 October 2018.
Andha andhe ko rasta dikhaaye, toh phir andha kaun? #AndhaDhun produced by @Viacom18Movies & @MatchboxPix releases in cinemas near you on 5th October, 2018. @ayushmannk @radhika_apte #Tabu #SriramRaghavan @zeemusiccompany pic.twitter.com/PtHRzvflaX
— AndhaDhun (@AndhadhunFilm) August 17, 2018
Ayushmann Khurrana is moving away from his comfort zone after acting in romcoms such as Vicky Donor, Bareilly Ki Barfi and Meri Pyaari Bindu. He plays a blind pianist in this latest film.
“It (doing Andhadhun) was a deliberate decision. I think it is not important to reinvent yourself with every film. Actors probably take themselves too seriously thinking, ‘I have to be different in every film’. But more than seeing you differently, the audience wants to see you doing a different story. Apart from that, you can reinvent yourself after establishing yourself in a particular genre,” the actor said.
Oh it’s not easy when you have to match up to Sriram Raghavan’s string of badass film titles but we all gave it a try! Presenting #AndhaDhun! https://t.co/NlVTNA6dVO @andhadhunfilm @radhika_apte #Tabu #SriramRaghavan @Viacom18Movies @Matchboxpix @ZeeMusicCompany pic.twitter.com/javunbzlOq

The first look of the film will be revealed on soon. Andhadhun will be set in Pune and the shoot is almost complete. Talking about the film’s title, the director, Sriram Raghavan said, “We are punning with the title as Ayushmann plays a blind pianist. It goes well with the story too. We had a lot of options in our mind, including Shoot The Piano Player, but the producers weren’t keen on using an English title. I know the real word is ‘Andhadhund’, but the ‘D’ is silent for us.”
We are so excited to see Ayushmann Khurana and Radhika Apte together! Are you?
Guess Who Wants To Sing For A.R. Rahman?
The American singer cum actress Selena Gomez recently expressed her wish to work with the music maestro A.R. Rahman.
Are you listening, Mr. Rahman?
Recently, in an interview, Selena Gomez said I like AR Rahman’s work. He is a global figure today. I would love to sing or be part of his compositions. I think it would be beautiful to sing for a Bollywood (movie.)
— Selena Gomez (@selenagomez) July 13, 2018
Well, Miss. Gomez, who does not want to collaborate with the self made maestro, A.R. Rahman? We hope you work with Rahman, soon!
Selena Gomez is also famous for lending her voice to the dark character Mavis, Count Dracula’s daughter, in the newly released flick Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation.
The 25 years old singer also added she had been following several Indian music artists and believed they are “wonderful”.
Allah Rakha Rahman, also known as, A. R. Rahman, is an Indian composer, singer, songwriter and music producer. The music maestro has composed a number of soundtracks in various languages including Iran, Tamil, English, Hindi and the list goes on! Rahman rose to fame with his phenomenal composition for the film Roja. He gained global recognition after winning two Oscars in the year 2009 for his remarkable music for the critically acclaimed movie Slumdog Millionaire. Rahman is also honoured with the Padma Bhushan, one of the highest Indian civilian award the Government of India.
Earlier, Rahman collaborated with several international artists and composed music for foreign films like 127 Hours, People Like Us and Muhammad: Messenger of God.
As of now, Rahman is working for various Tamil projects including Sarkar, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, Sarvam Thala Mayam and others.
Apart from being a music maestro, Rahman is also making a virtual reality film called Le Musk. This marks the composer’s directorial debut. We look forward to a collaboration between Rahman and Gomez in the very near future!
