If Bollywood were a science student, it would have flunked in all subjects except languages. Bollywood scriptwriters’ hatred for the concepts of physics is on display as soon as you start watching any of the sci-fi movies produced by Bollywood in the past couple of decades. The gravity-defying stunts, the larger than life plots, the mind-numbingly senseless characters and everything in between come together to form a Bollywood science fiction movie. So, grab an aspirin and read on to find out the top offenders of Bollywood that tried reinventing physics.
1. Ra.One (2011)
This big budget SRK starrer was so much into the ‘out-there’ category that a game character created by the lead (SRK) of the movie decided to take on human form and kill the very person that created it. But even that couldn’t stop it from tanking at the box office.
2. A Flying Jatt (2016)
This movie tries to answer the question, what happens when a superhero tries to impersonate the mighty Tiger Shroff? Or was it the other way around? Nevertheless, a villain drawing power from nuclear waste should be enticing enough to make you watch this movie, right?
3. Krrish 3 (2013)
A continuation of the movie that gave us our first alien in Bollywood, Krrish 3 finds itself crossing paths with the plots of numerous DC and Marvel comics while also borrowing inspiration for many scenes from movies like Superman Returns (2006) and Batman and Robin (1997). While the movie did bring in loads of cash for the producers, it failed to create a unique personality of its own.
4. Love Story 2050 (2008)
What happens when Bollywood tries dabbling with time travel? A love story! With a plot that would make H.G Wells come back to life and question his own creative genius, Love Story 2050 in its attempt to predict the future seems to have gotten only one thing correct - the flying cars in Mumbai, because of the pothole-ridden Mumbai roads.
5. Prince (2010)
Drawing inspirations from movies like the Mission Impossible franchise and The Fast and The Furious franchise, Prince was an attempt in the right direction in many ways, casting included. The only aspect it fell short on is its appeal to the public.
