16 Times Bollywood Gave Us Visual Effects So ‘Unbelievable’ That Our Eyes Were Bleeding

Vasudha Sabharwal

Bollywood has a long-standing trajectory of bombarding us with visual effects so terrible we were laughing out loud. While movies like Brahmastra and Ra.One proved there’s been a sea of change, we had our doubts after watching the first teaser of Adipurush.

While thankfully, after criticism, the creators of Adipurush decided to work on VFX wherever possible; nothing can be undone about the films we’ve already witnessed and ridiculed.

Acknowledging that there has naturally been a significant improvement with time, we are looking back at some of Bollywood’s worst VFX that were so bad they were good. Take a look:

1. They could have easily made the bride look scary with make-up. Instead, they chose to do this
