Again within the 90s and 00s, I didn’t have entry to the web. Naturally, I grew up on a gentle dose of Bollywood motion pictures. As a toddler, I used to swear by a few of these motion pictures however as a completely functioning (jk) grownup in 2020, I can’t bear to re-watch these movies with out cringing laborious.

This was a kind of era-defining motion pictures that the majority 90s Indian youngsters will bear in mind. If I’m being trustworthy, I’ve watched and cried over Tina (Rani Mukerji) dying, Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) being a nasty good friend to Anjali, and Jr. Anjali taking part in cupid to Sr. Anjali and her man-child of a dad. Nonetheless, finally it dawned on me that Rahul realised his love for Anjali after she switched her wardrobe from athleisure to chiffon sarees. Additionally, I can’t start to think about the emotional burden of an Eight-year-old who’s lifeless mom has put such an unlimited accountability on her shoulders. Nope, not occurring.

2. ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’

Okay, there’s no want for KHNH purists to really feel attacked. Tbh, I nonetheless shed copious quantities of tears every time I watch Aman (SRK) mendacity within the hospital mattress. Nonetheless, to be truthful to cinema and artwork usually, it’s a problematic movie that’s homophobic and sexist. Let’s not overlook the Kantaben scenes, they aren’t humorous. Additionally Aman utterly interferes in Naina’s (Preity Zinta) life and commonly patronises her for her life decisions. 10/10 wouldn’t stan.

three. ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’

This film isn’t half as unhealthy because the others on the record. On a lazy day, you may watch it with your loved ones and buddies. Nonetheless, as somebody who isn’t cocooned by Ramkishan’s wealth and palatial home, I’ve to ask myself: what precisely is that this film about? A minor inconvenience (the place a 50-something lady has a second of insecurity) apart, the characters appear to be brimming with positivity and good vibes. The boys are supplied the whole lot on gold plates whereas the ladies take care of them. Sorry, some individuals should hustle…rather a lot.

four. ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…’

Earlier than Emily in Paris, we had Poo in London. There are lots of obvious issues with this film however Kareena Kapoor Khan’s character Poo takes the cake. As a child, I used to like watching her introductory scene on repeat however the older I grew, the extra annoying it appeared. Other than that, let’s not overlook that the complete film is predicated on two grown-up males’s incapacity to speak with one another. Now that I give it some thought, that could possibly be probably the most reasonable facet of the film.

5. ‘Hum Tum’

It’s been just a few years, however I’m nonetheless questioning how Saif Ali Khan gained the Nationwide Movie Award for Finest Actor for this film. A very good a part of the plot is predicated on Rani Mukerji’s character Rhea tolerating Karan (Khan). As if it wasn’t annoying sufficient, now we have two animated characters desperately making an attempt to propagate gender-based stereotypes. Ummm, I’d like a refund please.
