    From Heropanti 2 to Bunty Aur Babli 2: Sequels which made us wonder why makers didn't stop after the first film

    Making sequels to Bollywood films is a tricky business. They could turn out to be better than the original, but could also end up becoming a big disappointment. Here are some of the worst sequels ever made.

    From Heropanti 2 to Bunty Aur Babli 2: Sequels which made us wonder why makers didn't stop after the first film

    Sequels to popular films have tons to offer-- a new story-line with the same hit concept, fan following thanks to the original and a chance to see our beloved characters in a new scenario. But there are also risks along the way. For instance, what if it did not meet the expectations set by the original film? Well, Kartik Aaryan ’s horror comedy Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 emerged to be a success. However, we can’t expect all successors to fair as well as it did. As we gear up for many more sequels which will come our way in the future, let’s take a minute to revisit some really bad installments which made us wonder why the makers didn’t stop on part 1.

    Tiger Shroff made a smashing debut in 2014 with the film Heropanti. When he announced the spiritual sequel where he returns as Babloo, fans were obviously excited. Sadly, Heropanti 2 turned out to be a major disappointment. Also starring Tara Sutaria and Nawazuddin Siddiqui , the story didn’t make much sense and even Tiger’s gymnastics couldn’t save it.

    Race 2 was a hit at the box office but unlike the original Saif Ali Khan starrer, which was a major success, this one received mixed reviews. It was slow-paced and lukewarm at most. Then came the third installment headlined by superstar Salman Khan , which was the worst of the lot.

    While Masti still had a decent plot, the sequel Grand Masti and third installment Great Grand Masti had no story-line to offer. Riteish Deshmukh, Vivek Oberoi and Aftab Shivdasani ’s adult comedies received negative reviews and were also described as ‘trash’ and 'cringe' by some critics.

    Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji’s Bunty Aur Babli was one film which did not need a sequel. It was perfect the way it was and meddling with the characters and story-line only left a sour taste behind. Saif Ali Khan could sadly not recreate the magic as the new Bunty but at least Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari Wagh did good work. To be honest, the trailer was far better than the actual film.

    Multi-starrer Dhamaal had its fair share of flaws, but at least it was funny. The same can’t be said about Double Dhamaal, which was full of clichés. The only good thing about it was Mallika Sherawat’s song Jalebi Bai. And don’t even get us started on the poorly written third part, Total Dhamaal !

    Which sequel from this list disappointed you the most?
