Condense a film plot into 140 characters, make sure it is bad. That's the best way one can summarise #ExplainAFilmPlotBadly, a hashtag which has been trending on Twitter for the last few days and still going strong.

Here are a few sterling examples: "It's all about a billionaire who dresses like a bat," or "A man sits on an island and talks to a volleyball." And the best: "Boat load of people take Ice Bucket Challenge. It ends badly. The girl floats away."

Here's looking a few Bollywood films and explaining them badly. Some directors did that do their films though.

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge

Case study on why conservative Indian parents should never let their daughters go backpacking across Europe - they may actually fall in love with guys who buy/steal beer. Haw!

Hum Aapke Hain Kaun

A very long wedding video, the pet dog also gets to play dress up.



Never mess with Indians when it comes to cricket.

Slumdog Millionaire

Being poor in India is a **itty business. Even the girl comes running for you only after you become a crorepati.


Sunny Deol takes on a hand pump. Sunny Deol wins.


You are an Indian superhero. But more importantly, you are Hrithik Roshan so no underpants on top of bodysuit. Just wear an itsy-bitsy mask, the cast still can't figure out it's you.



Never take women lightly, whether they are pregnant or not. They wear hairpins, don't they?

Om Shanti Om

Shah Rukh Khan will overact, even if he is born twice.

Ragini MMS

Sunny Leone gets undressed. And yes, there is a ghost in there somewhere too.

Dhoom franchise

Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra are the heroes. Thank God, there are the bad guys; they always get away.
