The Worst Films of 2023 From ‘Animal’ To ‘Salaar’



Marvel, oh Marvel, what happened to you? It seems like they’re in a bit of a rough patch, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania didn’t do them any favors. Sure, the movies have been a bit lackluster lately, but this one took the cake. Not only were the plot and CGI a mess, but the treatment of the crew behind the scenes was downright abysmal. Bill Murray, Evangeline Lilly, and Jonathan Majors tried their best, but it’s hard to salvage a sinking ship. Lets check out The Worst Films of 2023 From ‘Animal’ To ‘Salaar’ details given in this article.


Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar

Now, imagine a film filled with dance numbers featuring Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor. Sounds like a good time, right? Wrong. Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar managed to ruin the enjoyment factor with its regressive and misogynistic plot. And let’s not even get started on the director. A horrible human being, they say. Ouch.



Bollywood has a knack for bad remakes, and Bholaa is a prime example. A remake of the beloved Tamil film Kaithi, it’s not just bad for being a copycat. No, it goes a step further by making the character’s religion the central focus, seemingly to cater to majoritarian sentiments. Ajay Devgn, we expected better.


Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan

Remember the stereotypes peddled by Chennai Express? Well, Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan decided Tamil Nadu needed something worse. Salman Khan’s romance and “unique” dance moves inflicted more pain on the audience, and the parallels drawn left us cringing. Farhad Samji, did you think this was a good idea?


The Flash

Warner Brothers, what were you thinking? Despite all the off-screen shenanigans with Ezra Miller, they decided to release The Flash. Resurrecting dead actors with horrendous CGI, they boldly stood beside a film that left our eyes scarred. Maybe Tom Cruise and Stephen King saw a different version, but we’re still trying to recover.



Intent and marketing gone wrong. Adipurush reeked of malice and was rejected by almost everyone who watched it. Saif torturing Ibrahim and Taimur with this masterpiece might be the only good thing to come out of it.


Tiku Weds Sheru

A Kangana Ranaut production. Need I say more? Probably not, but we will. Expect cringe-worthy moments and regressive storytelling. A pass from us.



Drawing parallels between the persecution of Jews and a marriage in India? Nitesh Tiwari, you missed the mark with Bawaal. It’s surprising how history lessons turned into Bollywood confusion. Let that sink in.


Gadar 2

Gadar was a huge success, but the legacy sequel, Gadar 2, left us traumatized. Discriminatory success and painful viewing made this one a regrettable experience. Note to self: earthquakes and traffic collisions are a walk in the park compared to this.


Dream Girl 2

Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, Anek, Doctor G, and An Action Hero set the stage for Dream Girl 2. A commercial failure parade, celebrating the cringe-worthy and regressive. Raaj Shaandilyaa and Ayushmann Khurrana, you’ve outdone yourselves.



Hyper-aggressive nationalism and bigotry found a home in Raktabeej. Even legends like Victor Banerjee were unable to save this film. A feeble attempt at invoking nationalism left us questioning its existence.



Ah, Animal. Morally corrupt artists creating a morally corrupt product. Celebrated by morally corrupt people. And the silence around its use for bigotry speaks volumes. Sandeep Reddy Vanga, Pranay Reddy Vanga, Ranbir Kapoor, take a bow. The only thing worse than Animal? The promise of a sequel.


The Archies

A waste of storynt, resources, and time. The Archies left us wondering why it exists. Sometimes, even the most gifted actors can’t save a sinking ship.



Prashant Neel’s KGF: Chapter 1 had its flaws, but Chapter 2 redeemed itself. Salaar: Part 1 Ceasefire, however, is a mess. The narrative and visual storytelling are headache-inducing. Can Part 2 save the day? We can only hope.


Rabindra Kabya Rahasya

As a Bengali, Rabindra Kabya Rahasya hit close to home. An eyesore of a film attempting to spoil Rabindranath Tagore’s legacy and throwing in a feeble attempt at nationalism. Thankfully, Tagore’s legacy stands strong.


Dishonorable Mentions

Now, let’s give a “dishonorable” shoutout to some movies not bad enough for the list but bad enough to deserve a mention. Chris Evans suffered through Ghosted and Pain Hustlers, both painful. Kabzaa, a surprising release alongside Prashanth Neel’s movie, provided a blueprint for a KGF rip-off. Kuttey, an amateur’s attempt at communism, proved that some ideas are better left untouched. Sara Ali Khan featured in Gaslight and Zara Hatke Zara Bachke, an achievement of sorts. Mummies felt racist, and movies like Gumraah, Kiss, Kiss!, and Chengiz reeked of insensitivity. Simulant was criminally boring, and The Mother and Bloody Daddy had nauseating editing.

Ravanasura, Pathu Thala, Virupaksha, Boo, and Veera Simha Reddy shattered the myth that the South only makes good movies. Almost Pyaar DJ Mohabbat showed us Anurag Kashyap might be running out of juice. Lost and Kadak Singh by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury in the same year deserve a special mention. Ponniyin Selvan II was torturous, Jaane Jaan forgot to have well-lit scenes, and Fukrey 3 urinated on its wholesome legacy. Disney, you should be called out for everything you put out in 2023. Embarrassing in every way imaginable.
