In a country where millions of people come to Mumbai to fulfill their dreams, And every year about one thousand films are also released, What decides whether a film is a hit or a flop in Bollywood? Is it a good script, or an A grade cast? Along with the story, the box office collection, and when it comes to India, the irony is that luck plays a role more than hard work.
Here is a list of the 10 biggest flops of Hindi cinema.
1. Ram Gopal Verma Ki Aag
Which word is used to make a remake of a superhit film? resulting in a huge failure? It is popularly known as ‘Ram Gopal Verma Ki Aag’. We very much wonder what has prompted Ram Gopal Varma to work on this project and pay a fine of about ten lakh rupees for copyright infringement as ordered by the Delhi High Court. Who was also a heroin ‘Sholay’, then later played the role of the protagonist. The film has been one of the lowest-grossing films of all time and has also received negative public reviews.
2. Tees Maar Khan
‘Farah Khan’ considered ‘SRK’ as his lucky charm and ‘Happy New Year’ was one such project which he announced in the year 2005, But due to some reasons this project got shelved and he made ‘Om Shanti Om’ with him. After this film, there was a lot of bitterness in the relationship between both of them and they had ‘signed’ for their next film. And the only hit thing about it was the item song ‘Shiela Ki Jawani’, and we also think that she has since decided to patch up with ‘SRK’.
It is the story of an orphan (Abhishek Bachchan) who is later discovered to be from a lineage of ancestral warriors and embarks on his journey to play his part in saving the kingdom, The fantasy film received very poor critics and public reviews. It was one of the lowest-ranked films on ‘IMDB’.
It was only after a controversial lip-lock in the film ‘Dhoom 2’ that Bachchan was not at all happy about it, ‘Hrithik Roshan’ and ‘Aishwarya Rai’ again appeared together in ‘Guzaarish’ directed by ‘Sanjay Leela Bhansali’. Although ‘SLB’ doesn’t have a very good equation with flops, despite having a good story, it didn’t do well at all.
5. Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja
After ‘Shekhar Kapur’ in the year 1993, this film directed by ‘Satish Kaushik’ left the direction midway. Despite the presence of many actors, the film was not successful at all in making box office collections.
It was an action thriller film directed by Mani Ratnam and featured ‘Abhishek Bachchan’ as an antagonist (compared to ‘Raavan’) co-protagonist. The film was compared to ‘Ramayana’ in a very politically incorrect way, thus failing at the box-office, with poor critics as well.
‘Priyanka Chopra’ and her then-boyfriend ‘Harman Baweja’ appeared on screen together for the first time in the science fiction film directed by the latter’s father. The actor’s debut proved to be a disaster at the box office and received negative critical reviews.
This action-comedy was an official remake of the 1983 film of the same name starring ‘Jitendra’. Along with a fairly regular track from the ’80s, the actress, who is also the daughter of the antagonist, He falls deeply in love with the hero’s simplicity and bravery when he saves his life. And the original version was a blockbuster, but the experiment of ‘Sajid Khan’ was a total failure.
9. Bombay Velvet
It is a period film set in the 60s that depicts the love story of a street fighter ‘Johnny’ and a jazz singer and rich villain ‘Kaizad Khambata’ (“Karan Johar”). Who takes great advantage of Nayak’s poverty to further his utterly illegal business. We all have seen KJ doing magic in his own direction, But his debut as an actor may not have been good for him at all. The film was a critical and commercial disaster.
If you happen to announce the remake of any blockbuster film, then it is a risky act because the expectations from the remake are very high. The same happened with ‘Karzzzz’, directed by ‘Satish Kaushik’, which was conceived from ‘Karz’. The story of reincarnation did not do much for ‘Himesh Reshammiya’. The film received harsh critical reviews and was a total failure at the box office as well.
