Probably one of the biggest gaffes, because the movie is usually considered as iconic, comes from ‘Sholay’…
That’s Thakur and his visible hands, hidden under his blinding white kurta.
You would think that makers wouldn’t make such BIG blunders. But then it was 1975 and nobody knew Sholay would become one of the biggest Bollywood blockbusters ever.
Aside from this particular one that really caught my attention, there are many examples of movie mistakes in Bollywood…
Some are rather small that likely go unnoticed, while others are big and make you wonder what the directors and editors were thinking.
We all remember this scene from ‘3 Idiots’…
Check the handwriting from two different takes. It doesn’t match.
Another of Aamir Khan’s mega-big movie ‘Lagaan’ had a minor mistake.
In 1892, one over in cricket used to have 8 balls. But in Lagaan, they showed 6-ball over.
You have watched ‘Heyy Babyy’, haven’t you?
The story of the movie, which includes finding the father of the baby, doesn’t really make sense had they simply done the DNA test to identify the father.
And then this iconic scene from DDLJ that defined a generation of lovers and love stories…
The only problem is why couldn’t Simran just get on the train from the other door?!!
This scene from the movie ‘Haider’…

The movie is based in the 1990s and there you see a mobile tower.
In ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’, the three friends come on a bike and leave in a jeep…
There are many, many mistakes in Bollywood movies, in terms of plots, set and actors – from ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ to ‘PK’ to ‘RaOne’.
You will find at least one mistake in every movie. And that’s okay. When you make something, there bound to be some blunders.
You will find mistakes even in Hollywood Movies.
Hope this answers your question.
