11 Bollywood Plotlines That Were Annoying AF

There was NO way Anushka Sharma didn't recognise her husband in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.

Posted on

1. Rahul playing Anjali in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and not realising even ONCE that she was into him.

Rahul, you swine. You only wanted your women to behave a certain way and fit society's standards. You ignored your best friend who'd been there for you throughout and now that she's wearing a saree and you're suddenly in love with her? LEAVE MY GURL ANJALI ALONE.

2. Naina and Rahul in K3G.

Why was Naina dragged into a love triangle for no reason? Why was Rahul never asked if he wanted to marry her? Why did Yash and Nandini think this was okay? Why did Naina have to have her heart broken because parents were idiots?

3. Tuffy being made to make decisions and pass messages in Hum Aapke Hain Koun.

4. Everyone casually fat-shaming Sweetu in Kal Ho Naa Ho.

Dharma Productions

Sweetu, one of the most unapologetic characters in film history, was always made to feel bad for who she was and how she looked. She put herself out there and believed in love relentlessly only to be told that she has less of a chance because she's fat???? And literally NO ONE spared her. Not even her own best friend.

5. The idiots unnecessarily bullying Chatur aka Silencer in 3 Idiots.

Chatur was a good student and hustled his way through college to maintain his grades. He was cursed for fighting his indigestion issues and being a diligent student. Let's not lie — Chatur was bullied in college.

6. Everything Akash did in Dil Chahta Hai.

Excel Entertainment

Everything about Akash was just wrong. He was a dick to his friends, his parents, and the love of his life. You could tell me that he went on a ~journey~ to find himself, but let's not deny all the awful shit he did to other people so HE could personally improve.

7. Shekhar's whole family yelling at him to break the wall in Parineeta.

Vinod Chopra Films

Parineeta was a beautiful, flawless film and a great break for Vidya Balan's career. It all goes well till Shekhar decides to LITERALLY break the wall separating him and Lalita. He is also backed by an extremely dramatic fam and it just gets really confusing at the end.


8. Karishma and Raveena being totally okay with Amar and Prem impersonating liars for no apparent reason in Andaz Apna Apna.

Vinay Pictures

At least Karishma and Raveena had legit reasons for switching identities. They wanted to vet the suitors they met. But what reasons did Amar and Prem have? They were just LYING TO FOOL RICH GIRLS.

9. Bunny suddenly realising he's in love with Naina after she took off her glasses in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.

Dharma Productions

OKAY. Honestly, women are not less attractive when they wear glasses. It would be great if Bollywood stopped perpetuating this. Thanks. Also, don't tell me NO ONE noticed a beautiful woman like Deepika Padukone at any given point in time.

10. The injustice done to Preeti in DDLJ.


Preeti was unnecessarily dragged in Raj and Simran's shaadi drama because Raj's father refused to talk to his son. The poor woman just ended up with a broken heart and an idiot brother.
