Audiences may easily obtain the highest-quality information in these exciting times since it is readily available. Because there are so many OTT platforms, we are never without access to entertaining movies and television series. Because there is so much rivalry, it is more vital than it has ever been for Bollywood to refrain from producing subpar films. 2022 was a year that was filled with numerous terrible movies that we could have done without coming from Bollywood.
The following is a list of Bollywood films released in 2022 that not only were not well received by audiences when they were shown in theatres but also had the lowest ratings on IMDb. These painful movies ended up being a total loss in terms of both the time and money spent watching them.
1. Jahaan Chaar Yaar (IMDb- 1.2)
This play, which was directed by Kamal Pandey, was met with disapproval not just by the film reviewers but also by the audience members who saw it. The film focuses on four married women who are unhappy in their roles as housewives and features Swara Bhaskar, Meher Vij, Shikha Talsania, and Pooja Chopra in the leading roles. They decide to take a vacation and make the most of their time away.
2. Nikamma (IMDb- 2.4)
Abhimanyu Dassani, whose mother Bhagyashree starred in the film Maine Pyar Kiya, made his acting debut in this film. In addition, Shilpa Shetty and Shirley Setia also appeared in the film. Due to the fact that it was one of the lowest-rated Bollywood movies of 2022, its lifetime revenue did not even come close to reaching 2 crore.
3. Heropanti 2, Om-the battle within (IMDb- 2.6)
The inclusion of films like “Heropanti 2” by Tiger and “Om” by Aditya Roy Kapur on this list is not at all unexpected. The terrible performances and poorly written scripts in these films left the viewer with little to nothing to look forward to or care about. Both movies had a significant budget, yet they were unable to attract audiences to the box office.
4. Dobaaraa (IMDb- 2.8)
The film “Dobaaraa,” starring Taapsee Pannu, debuted to acclaim from the film’s reviewers, however, audience members were not enthusiastic about the film. According to information gathered from a variety of sources, the film was produced with a budget of 30 crores, however, it concluded its theatrical run with an estimated lifetime domestic gross of just 3–4 crore.
5. Liger (IMDb- 2.9)
“Liger,” a Hindi-Telugu bilingual film, has received a rating of 2.9 out of 10 on IMDb, which places it as the sixth worst Bollywood film of 2022. Even though it was one of the most anticipated movies to be released in 2022, the film was a massive financial failure at the box office. The film, which was supported financially by Karan Johar’s Dharma Entertainment and Puri Connects, was highly condemned for having poor acting talents and a poorly written storyline.
6. Dhaakad (IMDb- 4.0)
Kangana’s film “Dhaakad,” which had an enormous budget of 85 crores and failed to do well at the box office, brought in a total of just 2.58 crores throughout the course of its run. The box office failure of the movie sent shockwaves across the industry.
7. Shamshera (IMDb- 4.9)
The audience did not like Shamshera because the writing was so terrible, and the storyline was so poor. The box office performance of this movie, which was made on a big budget of 100–150 crores, turned out to be a major letdown. It did so poorly at the box office in India that it did not even reach the 50 crore mark.
8. Raksha Bandhan (IMDb- 4.6)
The film Raksha Bandhan, which has a rating of 4.6 on IMDb, was disappointing for many viewers. Even though the movie debuted to a variety of reactions from the press, it did not do well on its first weekend at the box office. This movie was also one of the least successful films that Akshay produced in 2022 in terms of how much money it made at the box office.
9. Laal Singh Chaddha (IMDb- 5.0)
The film “Laal Singh Chaddha” marked Aamir Khan’s return to the major motion picture industry after an absence of four years. Even though it was one of the movies that many were looking forward to seeing the most in 2022, the film ended up being a major disappointment. Because of the many problems that have arisen as a result of Aamir and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s (the female lead) previous utterances, several internet users have called for a boycott of LSC.
10. Bachchan Pandey (IMDb-5.3)
Another Akshay Kumar starrer Bachchan Pandey turned into a disaster. This movie miserably failed to draw the audience into the cinema halls and bombed the box office.
There are a great number of films released in 2022 that ended up being a total and utter waste of both time and money.
