The Ten Worst Films of Emraan Hashmi

     Next

Emraan Hashmi began his innings as an actor almost a decade ago in Bollywood. Although Mahesh Bhatt's nephew made a good impression with his debut Footpath, his 'serial kisser' reputation along with a tendency to repeat themes and roles considerably delayed his entry in the league of A-listers.

Things look better than ever for him since his striking work in Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai, The Dirty Picture and, in all probability, Dibakar Banerjee's Shanghai. Too bad his last Friday offering, Jannat 2, bumper opening notwithstanding, wasn't received too kindly by the critics.

Quite a few films of his have met with similar fate earlier on. Here's a look at ten worst Emraan Hashmi starrers.  

Aashiq Banaya Aapne

As is the case with most of his movies, this one too, boasts of a chartbusting soundtrack (by Himmesh Reshammiya). 

But the love triangle itself co-starring Tanushree Dutta and Sonu Sood is nothing more than a mindless skin show dedicated to showcasing Dutta's curves and Emraan's lip-locking skills.

Tumsa Nahi Dekha

Like a beautiful girl on the street? Smack her on the lips. And you might live happily forever. Or so this shoddy version of Pretty Woman seems to suggest.

Tumsa Nahi Dekha is designed to unleash Dia Mirza's cute-to-sexy transformation and Emraan's puckering ability. On both fronts, the outcome is strictly 'meh'.

Shot in London, Vivek Agnihotri's directorial debut features an assorted cast of Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Suniel Shetty, Sameera Deddy, Tanushree, Irrfan Khan and Emraan.

Only there were no takers for this glossy but hollow rip-off of one of Hollywood's most revered films, The Usual Suspects.

And here Emraan aspires to tickle the funny bone.

Unless his tedious escapades with Celina Jaitley, a slew of innuendoes and mandatory sizzling scenes become one's idea of amusement, there's nothing even remotely comical about this daft rom-com.

Wait, his screen name is Mann Kumar. Ha ha, anyone?

The viewers are subjected to yet another helping of Emraan's flourishing sex life on silver screen in this silly, sloppy and sleazy crime thriller boosted by super hit Reshammiya concoctions like Jhalak dikhla ja and Soniye.

Emraan sticks to his tried and tested expression, read smooch and smirk, whereas Dino Morea and Udita Goswami don't even bother to try.

The Killer

Vishesh Films' weakness for duplicating gritty Hollywood fare into tacky desi remakes isn't new. And so there's nothing one can do except feel bad for a talent like Irrfan Khan wondering what he's doing in a loony remake of Michael Mann's Collateral.

What about Emraan Hashmi? The man and his blank leading lady Nisha Kothari are preoccupied cashing on our hero's best-known virtue.

Dil Diya Hai

Okay, so he doesn't kiss in this one but not much has changed. Emraan gets embroiled in another twisted romantic triangle.

And here the unpalatable bits, the Murder hero abducts his hapless ladylove (Geeta Basra) and sells her off to a reliably wooden Ashmit Patel for money in order to save his ailing mom. Patel, of course, falls in love with her till another twist in the plot surfaces to assault the audience (whoever showed up) and their leftover senses.

What on earth convinced Subhash Ghai to produce this farce? Perhaps the same reasoning that green signaled Yuvvraaj.

Point is Good Boy Bad Boy, with its foolish humour, invisible logic and agonising performances by Emraan, Tusshar Kapoor, Isha Sharvani and Tanushree Dutta, is easily one of the most forgettable films around the nerd versus naughty theme.

The Train

Yet another Hollywood copy (Derailed) with a terrific soundtrack (by Mithoon) and scorching love-making scenes between Emraan and his leggy heroines – Geeta Basra and Sayali Bhagat.

Proving that one cannot stick to formula for success, The Train came crashing down at the box office.

When a film picks on a sensitive subject like racism, one expects a judicious mixture of thought and research. But Emraan's Crook is so outrageously dim, it's almost hilarious.

And even Emraan's celebrated lips cannot do much to inject life in the company of non-actors.
