When Hollywood movies are dubbed in Hindi, certain keywords stand out. There is rampant use of ' tatsam ' words that are so difficult to comprehend, it's funny. Also, every movie title is exaggerated out of proportions, making them unintentionally funny. We thought it would be a good idea to compile such movie posters and put them in various categories.
Needless to say, some names will sound deceptive. Don't get the wrong ideas.

The desi obsession with ' Maut '
These category comprises mostly of action or horror movies. But don't be surprised if you find a couple of rom-coms in there. Indians are obsessed with death, which is why we watch 'Game of Thrones'.
