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

This was a type of era-defining films that the majority 90s Indian youngsters will keep in mind. If I’m being sincere, I’ve watched and cried over Tina (Rani Mukerji) dying, Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) being a foul buddy to Anjali, and Jr. Anjali taking part in cupid to Sr. Anjali and her man-child of a dad. Nonetheless, ultimately 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 infinite 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 at any time when I watch Aman (SRK) mendacity within the hospital mattress. Nonetheless, to be truthful to cinema and artwork normally, it’s a problematic movie that’s homophobic and sexist. Let’s not neglect the Kantaben scenes, they aren’t humorous. Additionally Aman utterly interferes in Naina’s (Preity Zinta) life and repeatedly patronises her for her life selections. 10/10 wouldn’t stan.

three. ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’

This film isn’t half as dangerous because the others on the record. On a lazy day, you can watch it with your loved ones and pals. 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 girl has a second of insecurity) apart, the characters appear to be brimming with positivity and good vibes. The lads are provided every little thing on gold plates whereas the ladies take care of them. Sorry, some individuals must hustle…lots.

four. ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…’

Earlier than Emily in Paris, we had Poo in London. There are numerous evident 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 neglect that the whole film relies on two grown-up males’s lack of ability to speak with one another. Now that I give it some thought, that might be essentially the most sensible side of the film.

5. ‘Hum Tum’

It’s been a couple of years, however I’m nonetheless questioning how Saif Ali Khan gained the Nationwide Movie Award for Finest Actor for this film. A great a part of the plot relies on Rani Mukerji’s character Rhea tolerating Karan (Khan). As if it wasn’t annoying sufficient, we’ve got two animated characters desperately attempting to propagate gender-based stereotypes. Ummm, I’d like a refund please.
