1. Hum Saath Saath Hain
Hum Saath Saath Hain is a classic example of a Bollywood guilty pleasure movie. The movie is often criticized for being regressive, melodramatic, and cringy. From promoting stupidity and nosy behavior in the name of Sanskar like the whole family accompanying the newlywed couple to their honeymoon to cringe songs like ABCDEF, the movie has a lot of issues. However, for many, Hum Saath Saath Hain is a movie that they secretly love but are hesitant to admit to others.
2. Chennai Express
Though Chennai Express was a huge hit, there is no doubt that Rohit Shetty’s directorial is still known for its bizarreness. From the unrealistic storyline to Deepika’s weird accent to cringe comedy, this movie had a lot of issues. However, many of us still secretly love the movie.
Missing out on Amitabh Bachchan’s Sooryavansham while mentioning the guilty pleasure movies is a crime. When 60-year-old Amitabh Bachchan still played a character that was 30 years old! One of the movies that many of us loved watching but will never admit in public!
4. Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham
No one can deny that there were many moments in the movie that were entirely cringe. From the overenthusiastic Kajol character to OTT Poo aka Pooja, the movie has been criticized for being stupid and regressive in recent times. But, there are some of us, who secretly love it!
With time the movie has been declared a regressive sanskaari saga with both Poonam and Prem as stupid and idiotic. But, we bet, many of you would have still watched it multiple times.
Based on the storyline of Ek Din Ka Chief Minister, this movie was full of unrealistic twists and turns with an overly sentimental storyline. While the movie has some cringe segments, we still loved watching it.!
7. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
With time, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai has been criticized for being regressive, misogynistic, and toxic. From labeling Rahul toxic and Kajol stupid [for choosing Rahul over Aman], the movie has been labeled as the toxic saga of all time. But, there are still many of us, who still love watching it and are hesitant to admit it.
And, remember Salman Khan in his blond wig when he was trying hard to pull the desi He-man look in the early 90s! One of the movies we secretly loved watching but will never accept in public!
