    Year In Review 2016: Bollywood’s Epic Fails This Year

    As in most years, Bollywood had its fair share of hits and misses in 2016. But amid the brilliant and the not so good, there were some terrible movies that made us question our sanity.

Looks like Bollywood will just have to try harder next year!
