Some Bollywood movies are a real disappointment. Even after casting the famous actors and spending a hefty amount of money on the actor’s wardrobe, they forgot to focus on one thing that matters the most i.e. the storyline of the movie.
They assumed the audience would be stupid enough to not see through the shallowness of their movie in the midst of amazing dresses. While the makers thought they could fool the audience with the actors’ wardrobes, the smart audience called off their bluff.
So, here are the 6 movies where the makers spent more money on clothes than the script:
1. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
Another movie by Karan Johar, where makers focused more on clothes and less on the storyline. While its lead actors – Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had the best wardrobes, we wish if makers had paid a little more attention to the plot, it’d have been a perfect film.
2. Jhoom Barabar Jhoom
Jhoom Barabar Jhoom is another glamorous Bollywood movie with lots of blinged-out clothes thrown in. We wonder if the makers would have given some attention to the story and performances, this movie would have made some sense.

The movie revolves around the character Aisha, who loves playing matchmaker for the people around her. And, in the process, she ends up ruining her own relationship with close friends. Starring Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Ira Dubey, and Amrita Puri in lead roles, it looks like the makers spent much more time and money on actors’ wardrobes than the characters and storyline.

Another movie that makes it to the list where makers forgot to remember that audience couldn’t be fooled by fashionable clothes!
5. Veere Di Wedding
While the cinematography and the appearance of the female characters are visually impressive, the remainder of the film including the story, direction, acting, and characters are subpar. Furthermore, the movie is heavily inundated with brand placements, transforming it into a feature-length advertisement rather than a cinematic experience. Overall, the film is of low quality and lacks substance.
Kalank – Karan Johar’s ambitious period film miserably tanked at the box office. The reason was simple – the movie had the biggest names in the industry but lacked a good script and credible performances. But, while the makers forgot to pay attention to the script, they did a stellar job in dressing the characters. But, the audience made it very clear that the real beauty of a movie lies in its script. And hence, even after being a visually and aesthetically pleasing movie, it fell flat at the box office!
