A movie that ruins your whole day and a bonafide disaster that makes you question your life choices. What should be the stakes for a film to be a catastrophe?
First of all, the storyline should have no head or tail. Secondly, the actors involved should have stardom that surpasses many in the field. Lastly, the film must be built as one of life’s greatest joys for the year.
TopPiks has created a list of the worst Bollywood movies that satisfy these criteria. However, even though these movies will traumatize you for a day, you have to watch them at least once to experience a different level of perplexity and amazement in your life.
Here are the eight worst Bollywood movies you need to watch:
1- Student of the Year 2
Student of the Year 2 broke all the records for Karan Johar. Successor to his Student of the Year had no purpose other than showing an unrealistic school and launching star kids on a bigger platform. The love triangle between the three leads, Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria and Ananya Pandey, makes no sense and garners a score of 6% on Rotten Tomatoes.
2- Love Aaj Kal 2
Who could have imagined Imtiaz Ali directing a disaster of this level after creating some of the best-written movies in Bollywood?

3- Dabangg 3
Salman Khan’s Dabangg franchise had only one goal of fan servicing the action loving hardcore fans of the superstar.
