Playing young Sardar and Gursher Singh (Amreek’s Grandfather), Aditi Rao Haidri, and John Abraham can also be seen doing cameos. The film could not attract much audience despite an intriguing trailer due to a flat storyline and poor execution. An emotional connection was missing, along with the constant switching of dialogues from Punjabi to Hindi. Hence, Sardar Ka Grandson could land a rating of 4.2 from IMDb and 20 percent from Rotten Tomatoes.
Thinking about Priyadarshan, instantly, names such as the Hera-Pheri franchise, Hungama, and other blockbuster comedy hits come to our minds. Naturally, the anticipation and exciting expectations were bound to increase within the audience when Hungama 2 was announced for release after the absence of PriyarDarshan for eight years.
But the romantic comedy Hungama 2 could not entirely recreate the buzz and magic Priyadarshan is known for. Despite being the sequel of the 2003 film Hungama, the movie, Hungama 2 is a remake of the 1994 Malayalam film Minnaram which Priyadarshan himself also directed. The plot is initiated when a woman named Vaani knocks at the door of The Kapoors with a toddler. She claims that the toddler is the child of her college sweetheart Akash.
What Does Bollywood Have In Store For 2021?
Featuring the talented star cast of Paresh Rawal, Shilpa Shetty, Meezan Jaffery, and Pranitha Subhash, the film failed to induce an explosive laughing phenomenon among the audience. Contradiction creates disastrous chaos throughout the film, along with the poor script. The confusion only frustrates the audience rather than making them laugh. Hence, Hungama 2 earns the rating of 3.1 by Imdb only.
The Girl on the Train
British Author Paula Hawkins published a psychological thriller novel named ‘The Girl on the Train’ in January 2016 which went further on to become the bestselling novel. The movie stars the talented star cast of Parineeti Chopra, Aditi Rao Hydari, and Kirti Kulhari. A Hollywood film was also released with the same name. The plot revolves around the female protagonist suffering through severe psychological trauma after losing her kid, marriage, and job. The producers failed to recreate the booming phenomenon of both the novel and Hollywood film.
Parineeti endeavored to understand Emily Blunt’s character deeply, but she appears extra dramatic in certain moments. Also, the insensible plot twists were not adding up. Hence, Imdb could only give a 4.4 rating and 9 percent from Rotten Tomatoes.
Time to Dance
Starring opposite Sooraj Pancholi, we have Katrina Kaif’s younger sister Isabella Kaif in the movie’ Time to Dance’. Director Stanley D’costa could only get the rating of 1.8 by Imdb on the film. In addition to the film plot being dull and bland, the actors also lack the correct intensity of emotion or any emotions. Due to the absence of exhilarating plot twists and turns, the storyline could induce a vital interest from the audience according to a dance-based film.

Time to Dance is based on an injured ballroom dancer becoming thrilled when she finds a perfect dance partner. Attempting to move past her tragic past, she makes efforts for victory while simultaneously fighting her love for her partner.
Expectations were raised after ‘Stree’ performed well at the box office and impressed the audience. Coming from the same makers and director Hardik Mehta, ‘Roohi’ should have maintained the same success level as ‘Stree’ if not surpassing it. But the storyline fails to deliver the subtle humor and streamlined execution as ‘Stree,’ which disappointed the viewers.

Claiming to be a horror-comedy, ‘Rooohi’ doesn’t serve either spine-chilling horror or comedy. It turns out to be bland. Not only do the special effects fail to impress, but even the sequences are also awkward and dull. Starring Rajkumar Rao, Jhanvi Kapoor, and Varun Sharma, ‘Roohi’ ends up earning the rating of 4.3 by Imdb and 10 percent from Rotten Tomatoes.
With Salman Khan’s celebrity power and direction from Prabhu Deva, ‘Radhe’ was indeed one of the most awaited films of 2021. But it turned to be a downright dull and flop film. Thus, the makers had to content themselves with just the rating of 1.8 by Imdb and 9 percent from Rotten Tomatoes.
Top Suspenseful Thriller Movies On OTT Platforms Which Will Keep You Ecstatic For The Entire Day
There is the usual absence of a consistent and logical storyline in the movie. Confusion is at an all-time high among the audience when unplanned incidents happen in the plot with no sense whatsoever. Every time a new character is introduced, they end up to the fate of death within the next couple of minutes. Salman Khan, as always, makes an entrance beyond the sense of science and in an utterly ridiculous way. The chaos makes the film a pain to witness
Criticism further becomes well-deserved when even Salman’s father disregards the movie and its plot.
