Bollywood is the biggest film industry in India. Not only the reach of Bollywood movies is worldwide, but the money invested in making these movies is quite high. No wonder making a movie is a big risk. But not all movies manage to woo the audience despite having hundreds of crores used in its production. Here is a list of Bollywood movies that failed at Box Office.
Mohejo Daro was made at a whooping budget of 100 crores. It was touted as one of the most anticipated movies of the year 2016. Everyone was excited about this historical drama, but the trailer was underwhelming. The biggest disadvantage was the fact that it was released against another big movie, Rustom. Mohenjo Daro failed to impress the audience. It was a dull and slow movie and lacked the research needed. Mohenjo Daro turned out to be an average movie with nothing to boast about. It could barely recover its production cost.
Mirzya’s trailer made us stand on our feet and jump out of excitement. The trailer looked amazing. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra brought alive the world of Sahiba-Mirza on the screen for us. Anil Kapoor’s son, Harshvardhan Kapoor, has finally debuted in Bollywood. Audience reached to the theatres to see if he would be able to bring the charm of his father on the silver screen. All they received was an undercooked storyline, blank heroine and a hero struggling to save the movie. The epic love story of Sahiba and Mirza was lost somewhere amidst the created by the movie.
R.A. One was made at the grand budget of 1.30 Billion rupees. It reflected on the screen. The movie tried its best to be as crispy as Hollywood action movies. Some scenes of the movie were believable, too. But the biggest let down was the story. It was overly simplified and lacked the hook needed to captivate the audience. R.A. One could only recover its cost without creating the expected magic on the box office.
Bombay Velvet is considered one of the biggest mistakes of Ranbir Kapoor. It was made at a budget of 120 crores and had a gleaming star cast. In fact, Karan Johar was roped in to play the antagonist in the movie. Despite good songs and incessant promotion, the movie failed at the box office. It couldn’t even recover its cost and was termed as one of the biggest flops of 2015.
Kites grabbed everyone’s attention with its attempt of producing a mix language movie. Barbara Mori, a Spanish actress, was playing the female lead. The movie was continuously surrounded by controversies and it piqued our interest. But the movie turned out to be a dud. Neither the story nor the leads were compelling.
