Yes, B-Town is the one place where hitting an amnesiac on the head can make memories come flooding back. It is also the only place in the world where saying "I love you" can bring back the dead, and of course, where the dua is much more effective than any dawa.
Here are 5 films that showcased Bollywood at its most medically inaccurate:
Do you like to think of yourself as a patriot? Do you love India more than anything in the world? If yes, you might have just ensured your immortality!
According to Clerk, all you need to bring a patriot back from the dead are a few patriotic recordings. When Bharat is unable to afford a doctor, his heart attack gets the better of him. But who needs doctors when the patient is a patriot? His sons immediately started playing Kadam Kadam Badhaaye Jaa on the tape recorder. Before we knew it, the aptly named Bharat was up and marchin’ along to the tune!
Diya Aur Toofan
When Amar was killed on his wedding day, Gyaneshwar came up with a brilliant idea. Why not surgically remove Amar’s brain and store it in order to "keep him alive"?
Billa No. 786
If there’s one thing we’ve noticed about Bollywood and medicine, it’s that Mithun Chakraborty is a part of a lot of medical marvels. He made history in Billa No. 786, when he was bitten by a snake. What’s so special about that? He is probably the only person in history to die of a snake bite and then come back to life!
So how did Mithun Da come back to life? Simple! The snake simply returned to suck the venom out of his system!
If you thought the phrase "garam dimag" was a metaphor, you could learn a thing or two from Rowdy Rathore.
When our titular hero was hit by a rickshaw, his brain suffered damage that made it heat up, which lead to incapacitation. However, medical problems in Bollywood have quick and easy solutions. Especially when it’s the protagonist’s life at stake. This severe brain damage was easily cured by sprinkling some water on his head! Who would’ve guessed?
Medical marvels are a genetic thing. Jimmy, starring Mimoh Chakraborty, is proof of that. Jimmy, an engineer by day and a dancing sensation by night, was diagnosed with a life-threatening tumor.
Though this would’ve normally been tragic, we knew only a miracle would cure our hero. When Jimmy got into a fight and received a blow to the head, it truly turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Why, you ask? Well, according to Bollywood medicine, all you need to cure a tumor is a smack to the head!
