A Funny Summation to the year 2007 for Bollywood films

The year 2007 was a landmark year for Bollywood. There have been successful films like Partner, Om Shanti Om, Namastey London, Bhool Bhulaiyya, Welcome, Jab We Met, Dhamaal, Hey Baby, etc. (Notice the similarity in the subjects of all of them? No? They are all inane, nonsense comedies). Then there were some other successful films like Cheeni Kum, Aapka Suroor, Bheja Fry, Guru, Eklavya, Life in a Metro, Traffic Signal, Shootout at lokhandwala which do not fall in the inane comedy category.
Then there were good films like...uhmm... The Namesake, Taare Zameen Par and..... well, I guess two films in a year is more than one can ask for in Bollywood. That too one from an Oscar nominated director and one from the Gem of India, Debutant director Aamir Khan. Okay there was Chak De! by Shimit Amin (Nice film only that it seems to be lifted from some Hollywood flick but I will give it to Chak De- good film)
Then there were some really gems of un-films which makes one wonder how they even managed to release in theatres? Nanhe Jaisalmer, RGV Ki Aag, Goal, Aaja Nachle, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, No Smoking, Anwar, Big Brother, Cash, Chhodon Na Yaar, Delhi Heights, Tarararumpum, Salaame Ishq, Nishabdh, Naqaab, Kya Love Story Hai, Hattrick, Good Boy Bad Boy, Gandhi-My Father(It breaks my heart to mention this film in this category but Feroz bhai really botched up a brilliant subject), Fool and Final, Dus Kahaaniyaan, Etc.
I think the latter category directors should all consult an astrologer for their future. Tell you what, I have done exactly the same thing for them- Consulted an astrologer for each one of those directors who did not make a mark this year. Wanna read it? Just click on the link below.
