Bollywood movies NOT to watch on Valentine's Day

     Next

Next

Your choice of film on Valentine's Day can be a deal-breaker. Yes, it's *that* important.

It’s ideal for cuddling up to your partner after a wonderful evening or even if it’s the only special thing you do to go with those lovingly baked brownies.

What’s more important, however, is your choice of film.

Believe it or not, it can be quite a deal-breaker.

So here are some movies we think you should steer clear from playing on February 14.

Ek Main Aur Ek Tu

It’s a charming romance comedy.

Only you remember what happens right?

Imran digs Kareena. Kareena digs Imran. Only in a strictly platonic way.

Not planning on getting friend-zoned for life? Avoid.

Darr

Some chap everyone ignored in college decides to slip into full-on stalking mode for the girl he crushed on.

That results in crazy pandemonium against gorgeous snow-clad backdrops in Yash Chopra’s violent love story, Darr.

Bottomline: We pick Shah Rukh Khan’s Pyaar Dosti Hai fundas over I love you K-k-k-k-iran.

Raanjhanaa

For all of Dhanush’s heartfelt verve and tenacity, Raanjhanaa unfolds the events of a rather messy romantic.

There’s too much politics of the heart and mind and physical aggression to recommend it on a day that celebrates the rosy facets of life.

Ek Duuje Ke Liye

All through the course of this romantic drama, Kamal Haasan and Rati Agnihotri convey the inspiring commitment and restless angst of young lovers forced to stay apart by their incompatible parents.

And just when they are two steps away from their happily-ever-after, Ek Duuje Ke Liye turns so brutally sadistic, it will scar its viewer for life.

Ishaqzaade

In this bristly retelling of Romeo and Juliet, children of enemy clans fall for each other.

Before unconvincingly turning new leaf, Arjun Kapoor’s deceitful Romeo pretends to be smitten by an unexpectedly gullible Parineeti Chopra followed by revenge sex, regressive compliance and, ultimately, a foolish urge to play gun-gun.

What a waste.

Omkara

Another reworking of Shakespeare (in this case Othello) revolves around a couple intensely in love but ends on an ominous note.

Lack of trust can ruin a relationship is the moral here as Ajay Devgn allows a scorned Saif Ali Khan to poison his mind against his blameless sweetheart Kareena Kapoor resulting in immensely tragic finish.

For all three.

Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna

Don’t think anyone’s idea of a romantic date involves watching a film about how two self-seeking people wreck their peaceful marriage and family life to have an affair with an unlikable individual.

And if that’s not silly enough, Karan Johar tries to justify their actions by making them look so virtuous for not trying to get back together after a divorce until prompted by their exes.

Skip it, sister!

First he uses her blind state to execute his covert operations.

Then he spends the night with her.

Then he dumps her by making her believe he’s dead.

Then he reappears from nowhere and makes a puppy face in front of her and their son.

Then he kills her father and is identified as a national threat, a terrorist.

Of course, she shoots him in the end.

Rajnigandha

Sure, Rajnigandha is a terrific film.

Unless the object of your affection is still making up his/her mind about you, know this.

In Rajnigandha, a Delhi girl who is engaged to a somewhat regular guy goes for a job interview to Mumbai where she meets ex-flame and she begins to secretly infatuate about him all over again.

Luckily, nothing happens.

But, hey, it might just give him/her ideas.

Sadma

You know how this ends, right?

Sadma is a beautifully crafted tragedy about a sympathetic young man and his single-minded devotion to nurture a girl who’s lost her memory and mind. But that’s what it is, a tragedy.

Unless you want your special day to end in a sob fest, hide your copy NOW.
