When the film started, the ridiculous CGI birds were the only thing I could reasonably hate on.

At some point, though, that all changed when--and I am not making this up--only the first few words of every line were being subtitled, and I did something good for my sanity by giving up & going home.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania

As the movie opens, our heroine is bucking hard against her community's expected gender norms.

She is so completely successful that by the end of the film, her love interest is displaying visible chest-shaving bumps and ab-accentuating makeup.

Nenu Local

Every time a character smokes or drinks, there is a warning printed on the screen suggesting that the viewer shouldn't do these things.

Why is there no such warning when our "hero" sneaks into a woman's bedroom, sprays anesthesia in her face, and absconds with her unconscious body?

It's wall-to-wall microaggressions--and then things get really spooky.

I'm not sure which part was more discomfiting.
