It was 2013 and I remember going alone to the theatre for the first day first show of Aashiqui 2. I sat quietly through the odious film simply because I was tripping hard on the movie’s music album. And while I must not have confessed this before (mostly because I was trying to be cool by going alone to the theatre and all), it was a really confusing, not to forget disappointing watch. How could a movie with that bomb a soundtrack turn out to be so…blah?!
That said, Aashiqui 2 is certainly not the first or the last film with that kind of a track record. I know it, you know it, and the entire nation knows it. In fact, a recent thread on Twitter brought back some really exasperating memories of movies will glorious music but a next level drab plot that I have watched over the years. And truth be told, I have watched far too many of these, way more than what a person should be allowed to endure in their lifetime. Well, such is life! In case you already haven’t watched these moves and to save you from the ordeal here’s a summation of movies that have lit music, but super shitty plots that you should steer clear of. Also, even if you already survived them all, scroll through for some cheap thrills:
Name a shitty movie that has a fire album. I'll start-

Who knew that the guy who crooned “Kaise hua, kaise hua…tu itna jaroori kaise hue” would go ahead and slap the actress in the film! Yes, to the songs, no to Kabir Singh. One colossal disappointment!
We did dance on Chammak Challo for a good one year to follow but please don’t even get us started on the movie! Songs, yes! The film, no!
Well, ‘Tarrefan’ was one hell of a song, yes! Sadly, it ends just there.
While Roy must have given us the party song of the year with “Sooraj Dooba Hai” that was mostly it. No other take away from this drab show of a film which in my humble opinion was the silver screen equivalent of a human yawn. There I said it!
‘Kho Gaye Hum Kahaan,’ ‘Sau Aasmaan,’ ‘Nachde Ne Saare,’ ‘Dariya!‘ If only even ten percent of the effort invested in creating the music track and songs of this movie was invested in the plot and performances! If only!
Guess this one’s gonna haunt me till my last breath. The fact that I was dealing with some major heartbreak issues back then doesn’t really help either!
Still can’t get over the fact that Kareena and Imran did two films together with chemistry that can only be scored in negatives. Also, all these Imran Khan films so don’t deserved the glorious albums that were wasted on below-average projects. I am kinda also reminded of I Hate Love Storys here.
It escapes me how can the same creative heads approved a song like “Labon Ka Karobar” and the plot of Befikre in the same go. How?
So they did dare to tell us that ‘Dooriyan Hain Zaroori’ only to throw a surprise wedding for the actress without seeking her permission for the same towards the end? Okay, then!
Okay, this one is in the list simply coz it shouldn’t be here in the first place. While I absolutely disapprove of the film, there’s no way I am approving of the music either. ‘Ishq Wala Love,’ really?!
Also, cannot believe I legit watched all of these movies. That’s what bomb AF music does to you I guess!
