We're reminded of Roger Ebert's quote on bad movies: "I think bad movies are more of a first-date movie. If your date likes it, do not date that person again. And if you like it, there may not be a second date." 

The members of the Film Companion Film Club, our curated group of film lovers on Facebook, got together to pick their absolute favourite best worst films. After watching the Nawazuddin Siddiqui short film Carbon, Anupama Chopra started a playful thread asking the others which movie they thought was so bad that it was actually good


What makes a film so awful that it transitions from ordinary incompetence into a cult status and then into that state where you really can’t believe what you’re watching? Here's the list our Film Club members curated: 

1. Dunno Y Na Jaane Kyon…

2. Carbon

3. Lucky: No Time For Love

4. Sura 

5. 36 China Town 

6. Jaani Dushman 

7. Gunda 

8. Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…

9. Mohenjo Daro 

10. Clerk
