In my top 10 , my top ten most overrated Bollywood movies that is
19 April 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw Raja Hindustani way way back in 96 when it first came out. It was a huge blockbuster and made Karisma Kapoor a major star. The songs became imensely popular, especially Pardesi Pardesi. In my opinion the songs are the only reason the movie became such a huge blockbuster because the story is pretty appalling and clichéd. The story as it is involves Aamir Khan, a cab driver who falls in love with a rich girl who comes to stay with him. They get married but then the rich girl's parents try to cause problems in their relationship and the couple eventually split. The movie's main problem is that it can't decide whether it wants to be a remake of Jab Jab phool kile or Akele hum akele tum and it ends up as an uneasy mix of both. The movie can't even be saved by the wonderful songs. An awful awful movie and the fact that the movie did so well simply astounds me.
