10 Bollywood Movies That Tanked at the BO in 2017 So FAr

1

Tubelight

Tubelight

By roping Chinese actress Zhu Zhu, the film had raised its level of anticipation amongst the viewers. And after the kind of acceptance that Salman received for his character in ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, the makers were hopeful that the actor would be able to ace it this time as well. However, the audience didn't take to the hero's change in acting style.

Raabta

Raabta

There was much that ‘Raabta’ was in buzz for. Right from Sushant’s break-up with his long-time girlfriend Aankita Lokhande to his link-ups with his co-star Kriti. All raised the anticipation level amongst the viewers. While the audience got to see a lot of Sushant-Kriti chemistry, it failed to work for the benefit of the film.

Jagga Jasoos

Jagga Jasoos

After a long hiatus, Anurag Basu’s ‘Jagga Jasoos’ managed to finally release in July this year. The film starring the alleged, now estranged couple Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, was in news even before the release of the film due to various reasons. Even after much hype about Ranbir’s character and the plot of the film, the film failed miserably.

Meri Pyaari Bhindu

Meri Pyaari Bhindu

Akshay Roy’s ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ was yet another outing of actress Parineeti Chopra with Yash Raj Films opposite Ayushmann Khurrana as the male lead. While this film gained good word of mouth publicity before it’s release due to Parineeti’s debut song as a singer in the film, the film in totality after its release proved to be a disaster.

5

Half Girlfriend

Half Girlfriend

After the success of ‘2 States’, Chetan Bhagat’s next novel ‘Half Girlfriend’ was in great demand. So much so that, Ekta Kapoor and Mohit Suri bought the rights of making the film on the novel even before the completion of the novel. However, unlike ‘2 States’, ‘Half Girlfriend’ was clichéd and also lacked intensity between the lead pair.

6

Sarkar 3

Sarkar 3

The third instalment in the Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Sarakar’ franchise, ‘Sarkar 3’ starring Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role yet again, released in May. Although the set-up and actors resemble the first part, it lacks the nuances that ‘Sarkar’ had.
The film also featured actors like Ronit Roy, Jackie Shroff, Manoj Bajpayee, Amit Sadh and Yami Gautam. While the performances of all the actors in the film were praiseworthy, the film was not engaging enough and sadly lacked RGV’s touch

Phillauri

Phillauri

This fantasy comedy was not successful in striking a chord with the audience. Anushka, who played a friendly ghost in the movie, promoted the film extensively before its release. The actors like Suraj Sharma, Diljit Dosanjh and Mehreen Pirzada managed to steer the film to some extent with their performance but the one-line plot of the film had nothing great to offer.

8

Rangoon

Rangoon

Rangoon remained one of the most highly anticipated films of 2017 with its most talked about star cast and storyline. The film that released in February had gained much eye balls even before the release of the film for it starred Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor together for the first time. Given the fact that Shahid shares a past with Kareena Kapoor Khan who is currently Saif’s wife, much was written about the duo and their budding professional relationship.

OK Janu

OK Janu

‘OK Janu’ starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor was an official Hindi remake of Mani Ratnam’s Tamil film ‘O Kadhal Kanmani’ featuring Dulquer Salmaan and Nithya Menon. The film released in January. While the Tamil original received a good response from the critics and audience alike, the Hindi remake failed to recreate the magic for the Hindi audience.

Begum Jaan

Begum Jaan

A remake of the Bengali film Rajkahini, Begum Jaan failed to find an audience despite a cast of outstanding actors.
