Laal Singh Chaddha is getting bad reviews on IMDb
Laal Singh Chaddha has a rating of 3.5 on IMDb based on 12,000 votes. This is a very bad rating on a popular movie rating site. In fact, Laal Singh Chaddha has become Aamir’s lowest rated film on IMDb. His major flops like Mela (2000), Dhoom 3 (2013) and Thugs of Hindostan (2018) are rated better. This is not a good sign for the creator, but the rating changes with the votes, so there is a chance that the rating will increase in the near future.
