Film producers know how to increase their publicity before the movie hit the theaters. There are many Bollywood films which are over-hyped before its release. This raises expectations to a greater levels and when the viewer watches the film, he/she comes out disappointed as the publicity raised their level of expectations.
There are many Bollywood films which are overrated and
over-hyped at times. The recent example is Kochadaiiyaan which has released
today (23rd May, 2014). The movie has been over-hyped since months.
Although the movie is originally in Tamil and dubbed in 7-8
different languages, the Rajinikanth starrer film was indeed one of
the most awaited films of 2014. The film is directed by
Rajnikanth's daughter, Soundarya R. Ashwin.
It is apparently the first time daughter is directing her father
in a movie. However, we feel that Kochadaiiyaan has been
over-hyped to some extent. Be it the delay of film's release or
making it the first Indian film to be made with new technologies.
The movie promises to be a treat to the eyes. It is the first photo
realistic 3D film ever produced in India. Kochadaiiyaan is
equipped with Auro 3D sound technology and four separate tech teams
and many teams worked to make it picture perfect.
There are some other over-hyped movies in Bollywood as well
which have created a lot of stir but failed to stay for long. For
example, Jab Tak Hain Jaan is one of the overrated and
over-hyped movies in Bollywood which became all the more popular
after the sad demise of its producer, Yash Chopra. The film was
shown as a tribute to the legendary producer.
Here is a list of some over-hyped Bollywood movies. If you have
more to add to the list, do share with us.
The Over-Hyped Bollywood Movies:
The multi-starrer Rajinikanth film is one of the most over-hyped
movies. Although it is basically in Tamil, the movie which also
released in Hindi has been overrated due to the presence of
superstar Rajinikanth. It also marks Tamil debut of leading
Bollywood actress, Deepika Padukone.
Jab Tak Hain Jaan
It was another over-hyped movies from the YRF banner. The sad
demise of Yash Chopra made it all the more memorable yet overrated
as the story of the SRK starrer film was not that impressive. Worst
it had expressionless Katrina Kaif!
It might have been a blockbuster hit last year and grabbed many
awards as well. However, the movie has been over-hyped.
This is no doubt one of the most over-hyped Bollywood movies of
2013. The musical drama marked the debut of Aditya Roy Kapoor and
Shraddha Kapoor. The stars were lucky as the overrated film was a
2014 marked the over-hyped film of Salman Khan, Jai Ho. The
movie did not fare well at the box office as it did not meet the
expectations of Sallu fans.
The Khiladi has been giving back to back flop movies. Seems like
his bad luck is following him for sometime as the over-hyped
Bollywood movie Boss to failed miserably at the box office.
Vidya Balan went crazy and signed this irritating film. Even
after wide promotions in character, Vidya and Emraan failed to make
the film a hit.
Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine was the talk of the town since
Aishwarya signed it. From India to Cannes, Heroine was really
hyped. Later Kareena signed the film and the promotions also made
it overrated. However, the hyped Bollywood movie flopped

parents and yesteryear stars, Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh.
However, the family starred film was over-hyped and flopped at the
This was the next release for Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra
after Ram Leela. The bromance, promotions and events failed to make
the overrated film a hit.
Do we need to say anything about this publicised and highly
overrated Bollywood movie? It was something which was not expected
after 2 successfully hit Dhoom series.
