Invest all the time, all the money, all your skills in a movie and make it truely awesome, but the indian audience will reject it. Well, thats the harsh reality. Crizic looks at some of the movies which should have been blockbusters but they tanked at box office. Here are the 7 flop bollywood movies which should have been hits.
If you perceive this movie on paper, you will find no reason why it became a flop after release. This film had an amazing starcast, great direction and superb acting. But probably Indian audience could not digest its coming-of-age story.
6. Dil Se
Dil se was a movie that was made with all innocence and heart put in. But may be its dark love story wasn’t well accepted by audience.
5. Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron
Yes. The funniest movie ever made in Indian history was a flop. The reason was simple. The audience at that time could not understand its out of the world satire and ahead of time comedy.
Indian movie buffs are pretty orthodox. When they start seeing their favorite actors in multiple typecast roles, they want them to do something different, yet they prefer them to keep going on with what roles they are typecasted into. The same happened with Amitabh Bachchan and, well, his voice. This Scarface-ish movie did not connect with the audience.
3. Andaz Apna Apna
Okay, even we don’t know why this movie was a flop.
Hailed as one of the most underrated movies around the world, Sadma was simply a flop due to audiences unacceptability of such topics.
1. Mera naam Joker
One of the greatest movie ever made in Indian history; Mera Naam Joker was a flop only due to its length (The movie being four hours long). But the four hour length was one of its USP. Anyway, the Indian audience could not understand this. Hence, this movie ends up as number one on this list.
