Dil Bechara Fake Reviews

Since this movie get 93% of 10/10 it gained my attention.
Click on the review tab and sort them by review date and you can see that most of the reviews are 2 lines reviews written by "new users" that usually have their name typed like that "name"-"5 numbers".
It's clearly some fake activity that's trying to put this movie on the map.
Maybe some bots or something like that.
Hope this reviews will be banned and their votes won't be counted for the imd top 250.
They're ruining both indian and main imdb chart.
Can you fix that?

I agree it came to my attention, and I can't figure out how a movie releases 2 days ago on Disney + attained:
9.5/10
90.7% of 10/10 for only 9 Top 1000 voters.
77 000 votes

and it is already #1 on the Top Rated Indian Movies
 
I hope that IMDb fixes this problem soon.

At this point, it is not even Indian nationalism boosting this film's rating, it is sabotage.

it's all fake reviews. i don't know if it's indian nationalism or Disney+ that is boosting its release, since 2 days ago Hamilton enter directly in the top 20. And guess what? It's streamed on disney+. Everything is strange..

These figures are clearly manipulated. Whatever IMDb's special vote manipulation protection algorithm is, it ain't working too well.

Incidentally, if one excludes all the "10" votes (and the "1" votes, just to be fair), we get an (unweighted) average of 7.1 which looks reasonable.

Yes, 7.1 looks reasonable for the target demographic; given that this is one of those "doomed lovers" schtick films that Bollywood viewers love & the fact that the lead died recently in real life.

Also, this is the unweighted average. We don't have access to the raw data or weighting algorithm, but that usually knocks the rating down by about one-third of a star.. so you're looking at around 6.7 - 6.8.

another problem linked to this is that every indian movie is gaining positions.  fake accounts are giving 10 not only to this but to other Indian movies like Andhandhun or Taar Zameen Par.. this thing is changing the list in a fake way..

Dil bechara ratings is 9.4 but it is not on the top list.
Why you are biased with Indian films. It is wrong.
Dil bechara has higher ratings than Shawshank redemption.

Hey all - thanks for the concern on this. The algorithm that is designed to defeat fake votes and attempts to skew ratings runs periodically, so the rating and any fake reviews will even out over time.

High ratings for this movie was triggered because of the death of the lead actor. Indian audiences get manipulated very easily to give 10's because of this.

Erm, this is very easy to explain...The main lead died at age 34, June 14th this year:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sushant_Singh_Rajput

So all his fans will flock to the last movie he's in and write honorary reviews and ratings. This has all the traits of fake reviews, but they aren't - they aren't relevant to quality of the movie either, but do reflect the sentiment associated with it.
