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 super hit.
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 miserably.
The movie was publicised as it starred Ranbir Kapoor with parents and yesteryear stars, Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh. However, the family starred film was over-hyped and flopped at the box office.
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.
