Bollywood filmmakers love to make sequels of acclaimed and commercially successful movies. But some films don’t require sequels. Making a sequel after a movie has a strong ending increases audiences’ curiosity and expectations. More often than not, it will be incredibly challenging to match the freshness and brilliance of the first film. Unfortunately, the bad sequels have outnumbered the good. Today, we look at some of the worst Bollywood movie sequels.
The original Rock On! was gorgeous. The story of friendship presented had a fantastic, incredibly unforgettable soundtrack, to put it mildly. So, everyone had high hopes for the sequel as well. But it turned out to be a terrible film. The performances were awful, especially Shraddha Kapoor’s. The soundtrack was the poorest aspect of the film. Rock On 2 indeed disappointed the viewers.
Vaastav was a superbly produced film. Thrilling, amusing, and superbly performed. But its sequel Hathyar should have never been made. The Mahesh Manjrekar-directed film was utterly meaningless. Hathyar had a pointless plot, over-the-top acting, and a lousy script. The movie had nothing going on for it except a good star cast. It was a tragedy that such a great movie had such a bad sequel.
Although slapstick, Golmaal: Fun Unlimited was a laugh-out-loud comedy. It included some hilarious scenes, which helped to make the movie stand out. The performances were excellent, especially Paresh Rawal’s. But the sequel was just annoying. It was tacky, vulgar, and offensive to the senses.

Even Akshay's authenticity couldn't save this movie, and it turned out to be a disaster.
Sarkar was RGV’s version of The Godfather, which impressed the audience with its dark ambiance. It starred the Bachchans, Amitabh, and Abhishek. Both of their performances were brilliant in Sarkar. Expectations were high for the sequel, but it disappointed the viewers. It presented nothing unique and stuck to the same formula as the first film. The movie was loud and pointless, and the plot was absurd and far-fetched.
Hungama, directed by Priyadarshan, was a hilarious film with funny and quirky characters, a great script, and good performances. When its sequel got announced, which marked the director’s comeback, the fans had high hopes for the film. But it turned out to be only of the worst films ever. Hungama 2 had an unfunny and problematic plot, a bad script, and featured terrible performances. Priyadarshan’s attempt to recreate the magic of the original failed miserably.
2007’s Dhamaal remains one of the best comedies of Bollywood. The actors displayed excellent comic timing, and the script was wonderfully crafted. After its sequel’s announcements in 2012, expectations were undoubtedly strong. But Double Dhamaal is one of the worst sequels ever. Adding Kangana Ranaut and Mallika Sherawat Mallika Sherawat is a glamorous Model turned bold >> Read More... was unnecessary, and the performances were terrible. It ruined the memory of the original for the audience.
Welcome remains one of the best comedies of Bollywood, and it was hilarious. Everyone was perfectly cast and gave terrific performances.

Only a select few performers can successfully portray such comedic roles, and John is not one of them. The sequel has some stupid dialogues, filthy songs, and bad performances. Nothing in this movie was worth remembering.
2008’s Race is a stylish action-thriller with a clever script, a soulful soundtrack, and great performances. Its sequel, Race 2, isn’t as good as the original, but it still is a watchable film. But Race 3 is a complete mess. It features terrible performances, over-the-top action sequences, and a crappy script. Salman Khan Salman Khan is a very famous Indian actor and a pr >> Read More... replaced in Race 3 and performed as he did in every movie. Remo D’Souza should strictly stick with choreography from now on.
One of the most successful comedy sequels in Bollywood is the Housefull franchise. While the first Housefull was a hilarious trip for the viewers, the second one was also quite a fun watch. But Housefull 3 didn’t land on the expectations. The storyline seemed completely dumb, and the characters were unfunny and annoying. The performances were also lousy. The direction by Sajid and Farhad is terrible. Housefull 3 is followed by an even terrible Housefull 4.
