With Gadar 2 and OMG 2 set to release soon, here is a look at some sequels that did not make a mark.

Gadar 2 and OMG 2

Bollywood has recently started to follow the pattern of milking successful films, turning them into franchises, and, more often than not, ruining the original for the audiences instead of coming up with fresh concepts for films. Here are a few of them to consider.

Lust Stories 2

The first season was produced for Netflix as an experimental OTT initiative roughly five years ago. And despite those weaknesses, it succeeded. Although both supporters and detractors praised the effort, there was a lot of criticism around it. The creators took their time to put together the sequel after receiving comments, but they did not take note of the negative reviews the first one received. In desire Stories 2, three of the four stories have infused desire and misplaced stories.

Krishh 3

Even though the first movie, Krishh, was actually a sequel to Koi… Mil Gaya from 2003, viewers at the time liked it for what it was: a superhero Bollywood movie. A third installment was not anticipated, but the producers thought it would be a good idea to let down their devoted followers with another sequel. Although Hritik did a good job reprising his character, the plot was by far the weakest component. Fans of the previous film, who had been emotionally attached to it since 2003, were extremely disappointed with Krishh 3 due to its cringe-inducing dialogue and shoddy acting by the supporting cast.

Gadar 2 and OMG 2

Housefull

Although the first movie wasn’t exactly a smash comedy, it did have its moments. The ones that came after, though, were undeniably forgetful. Additionally, the movie becomes more scary than hilarious when middle-aged actors are paired with actresses half their age. The audience is unlikely to revise its opinion given that a fifth installment is scheduled to be released early next year.

Rock On 2

The original movie had a wonderful soundtrack, excellent acting, and a compelling plot, making it famous in many respects. But the sequel utterly wrecked it! The actors underwhelmed, but the soundtrack—the element that made the first movie so successful—became the weakest aspect in the sequel.

Once Upon a Mumbai Dobaara

We can categorically state that this was the beginning of Akshay’s subpar performances in Bollywood. The original movie featured a compelling plot, and Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi led the cast thanks to their superb acting. The sequel’s creators worked really hard to make the movie seem amusing, but they utterly failed.

Golmaal Returns

Fun Unlimited was the slogan for the original Golmaal, and this version not only lives up to but surpasses that. With all the individuals and their strange antics, it was a lighthearted situational comedy that was enjoyable. To cut a long tale short, the number of sequels falls well short of the first film.

Welcome Back

The entertainment and comedy in Welcome were a mixed bag. However, the completely unnecessary sequel was rife with meaningless speech, poor music, and terrible performances—and that, too, from a cast you would expect to be much better.

Salman Khan Firing Case Timeline: From Gunshots Outside His Home to Salim Khan’s Reaction and Anmol Bishnoi’s Message

For the Khans, Sundays were anything but ordinary at Galaxy Apartments in Bandra, Mumbai. Salman Khan’s family was meant to have a quiet day on April 14, but they were uneasy when they heard gunshots outside his home early that day. A lot happened over the day, with the Mumbai police being involved and Anmol Bishnoi, the brother of Lawrence Bishnoi, claiming responsibility for the tragedy. A full timeline can be seen here.

Gunshots were fired outside Salman’s home

On Sunday, a lot of people awoke to the news that Salman’s Mumbai home had been shot at around five in the morning. Three bullets were initially thought to have been fired, but the police said that two unidentified people had opened fire. Forensic teams from the police arrived on the site, and his home’s security was stepped up. Images of the forensic team searching the crime scene were released. They showed them four casings and a bullet that had struck the wall of the building.

CCTV footage of suspects surfaces

The CCTV footage of the suspects was initially difficult for police to identify based on their bike’s number or faces. But the shooting was a drive-by. A further obstacle to distinguishing the two riders was that they were both wearing helmets. Nonetheless, the Bandra police used the accounts of those who heard the gunshot as support for filing a formal complaint against the unnamed individuals. The actor’s residence was said to be close to the location where a two-wheeler was discovered.

Salim Khan remains unperturbed

Salim Khan was in no mood for bullying, even with all the hoopla surrounding his kid. After the event, the well-known scriptwriter not only went for a walk, but the report cited a source stating, “Salim Khan is not perturbed at all and carried out his routine as always.” The family is extremely watchful and circumspect. Salman Khan is with them, safe and sound. Businessman Zafar Sareshwala states in a Zoom video that “Salman was in the house when the attack occurred.” Salman and Salim Saab were standing in the gallery when one shot was fired.

To boast, “See, we shot guns at Salman Khan’s house, we escaped, and now you keep Rs. 50 lakhs ready,” they have terrorized and scared us with this. Salman seemed comfortable, Salma Aunty was acting normally, and the family was not afraid of what had transpired. Salim Saab decided not to allow himself to be intimidated and went for a walk. The commissioner of police in Mumbai called him and told him, “This is the best response; you’ve essentially completed their entire effort.”
