Well, if you’re a fan of Bollywood, you know that you can almost predict what is going to happen next in most movies. Try how much ever they may, on a macro level, Bollywood can’t seem to escape a few cliches. These plot twists are what makes our movies more relatable and we aren’t complaining. Today, let’s take a look at a few of these twists. We are sure you’ll enjoy the read!
1) A highly educated, spoilt silly daddy’s girl falls in love with the poor and unfortunate hero and makes his life worth living. They fight for their love, almost die in the attempt and finally win over the girl’s notorious father. She moves in with the hero, and they live happily ever after.
2) Films based on the lost-and-found formula are blockbusters in the Indian film industry. People either get separated in Kumbh Mela or the Indian Railways! One brother jumps on to a moving train and other can’t and then one of them spends their life finding the other. If only they’d both waited and caught the next train!
3) After getting lost, the film leads meet many times throughout the movie but never recognize each other. In the end, a rare birthmark or a tattoo will seal the deal.
4) Before setting off the battle, hero wastes all his time with his big dialogues and villain waits until he finishes.
5) Let the car, house, or truck blast in the background, the hero walks away from it all unscathed and victorious.
6) In a bomb, there are only green, red and sometimes yellow wires to cut and the bomb is defused only at the last second before blasting.
7) Classic! Since Ramayana days, whenever the heroine is in trouble, the hero comes and saves her. No geographical boundaries apply!
8) Heroes always grow up while running or when they’re showering and just turn around.
9) No professors or principals can interfere when the leads are singing and dancing in college. Rules are for the laymen!
10) The leads may not be able to afford the basic necessities of life but they dream of romantic songs on the lavish mountains of Switzerland. Nothing less is good enough!
