We have grown up watching Bollywood movies. Our cinemas may be plastered with posters of Bollywood movies but all of us know that these movies aren’t exactly the kinds that leave any real impact on our lives because they are just so far from reality that it would be absurd to believe any of this could really happen. But it’s a guilty pleasure… we can’t help ourselves.

Here are 27 things an average Pakistani hates about Bollywood movies:

1. There is a love story in every story.

2. Some movies are only love-triangles and nothing else.

a) Two friends love the same girl. Always.

5. The heroine dances in a Chiffon sari/Net dress… in the snow! -_-

6. Songs, songs and more songs!

The movies are more about the songs than the story-lines!

15. Unrealistic portrayal of how love works!

In real life there are no violins or music or flying dupattas!

16. If they have Salman Khan. They only have Salman Khan. No plot – No story.

No logic!

Not everyone who sticks out their tongues is a ghost guys… Can we have some sane looking ghosts, please?

27. And there is always a happy ending to all the stories! Always.

But in reality it’s not always “Ja Simran ja jee le apni zindagi” okay!?

We come out complaining about how we want to see something different, something closer to life. But with the release of the next film we’re back at the cinemas!
