10 Cliches Fed By Bollywood In The Late 80's And 90's That Left Us Amazed
Bollywood has always been full of cliches. I don’t hate it that much but yes I am still amused. Its in this ridicule of Bollywood that I found my amazement too. Irritating cliches but nevertheless I am always amused whenever I come across these in TV. So here is the list.
1) Hero Ka Chichora Friend
Why the heck does the lead actor in every 90’s college kind of movie hang around with the creepiest kind of friends. They can be easily described as that one famous dialogue in Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar – “Akal ke bhooke, shakal ke bhooke aur na jaane kis kis cheez ke bhooke”
2) Devanand Ka Duplicate
Surprisingly every college in the 90’s Hindi cinema era had Devanand’s duplicate enrolled as a student. So much so that I suspect Devanand’s duplicate has managed to feature in more movies than the evergreen legend Devanand himself
3) Dr Alban – Its My Life. I Don’t Know What Hindi Movie Makers Had Against Dr Alban
If life was a Bollywood movie and you are a woman be very scared when there’s Its my life by Dr Alban playing in the background. Doesn’t matter if you are with a trustworthy friend or partying in a den full of drunk gangsters, you are going to be raped
4) Fardeen Khan And His Superbike
I mean come on. No matter whether the guy is playing a business tycoon or a poor man dwelling on the streets, he always somehow has a fuc&%#$ superbike. Bollywood could really go into depths of his character on screen at least. And lets not even go on his acting abilities 🙂
5) Pehle Takraar Phir Pyaar
All 90’s college type movies always has this. The lead actor and the actress do not like each other and fight a lot and then only fall in love. I mean why the heck couldn’t they have been friends initially, get to know each other and then fall in love. I mean.. ok leave it
6) Pyar Paison Se Nahi Insaano Se Kiya Jata Hai
One thing I never really understood was how come so many couples fall in love with a person not from their social strata. Rice guy falls for poor girl and vice versa. I mean come on, there would be people from your social class who are nice, good looking and smart. I think you guys just do it to piss your parents off 🙂
7) Oh Well We Need A Rape Scene. Who Should Be Raped ? Why Not The Hero’s Sister Or Maybe His Girlfriend
Oh come on you script writers. This was definitely required for the story and its not at all for titillation. You know it’s too hard to make the hero hate the villain. Cos you know its too hard to find reasons in this world for people to hate the other person.
8) When Suniel Shetty Plays Someone In The Forces, He Never Gets An Officer Rank
I mean he has had his share of war movies and stories based on some sort of defence thing. But he never gets to play an officer in those particular movies. One time he got a chance Main hoon Na and there also he was court martialed. 🙂
9) Women Who Have Strayed Away From Our Sanskar And Have The Audacity To Dress Up In Western Clothes Are Bought To Their Senses By Our Dashing Hero
Ah well we have always believed in letting women feel sorry for the choices they want to make in life
10) And Lastly Women Were Always Gullible To Believe This Man
Ranjeet. One look at the guy and you know you have to lock your women folk, young cute boys and any livestock walking around. He will hump anything he gets his hands on. Still women believed that he will marry them after sleeping with him. No darling, he is not going to marry you.
