Many netizens took to Twitter to call out the irony of how Bollywood films like Jayeshbhai Jordaar and Jersey fail at the box office, but, an insufferable movie like Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 turned out to be a 100 Crore+ movie. Yes, the movie has so far made 180 Crores at the box office so far.
No one can deny that Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan starrer Bhool Bhulaiyaa was incredible. With the perfect storyline, no forced humor, and compelling horror scenes, the entire movie left many impressed and awestruck. How could one forget the stellar cast and Vidya Balan’s goosebumps-inducing performance as Manjulika?
But, sadly, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is a movie that even Tabu couldn’t save. Many took to social media to call out how the movie introduces cheap and unfunny punchlines right when the ghost is supposed to scare the audience. After watching the movie on OTT, many called out the movie as a mess of unnecessary scenes and dialogues.
But, what left many shocked was how the Kartik Aaryan-starrer managed to make over Rs 180 crores at the box office. Here’s what they think:
Many people on Reddit also had a very similar opinion:
“I like Kartik and I think he’s a good actor. Tabu is brilliant and then the rest of the cast is funny too, ngl. There’s funny lines in the movie. But, how did this absolute shit fest of a movie with a god awful story line earn that much to begin with? How did this movie with the storyline it has earn 200 crore plus. This movie doesn’t even come close to the first one.” – u/BaseGenesis
“Tabu’s ghost sitting on Tabu at night and human Tabu scares Ghost Tabu by telling her “what will people say about you” And the ghost Tabu backs off because she cares what people say….even after she is dead. I couldn’t stop laughing.” – , “Only good thing about this movie was Tabu. Movie is under par.” – False-Train878
The recent trend is worrisome. If movies like Bhool Bhullaiya 2 will become box office hits and not films like Sonchiriya or Masaan, then who can save Bollywood cinema from getting doomed?
