The biggest flops of 2013
There have been no shortage of flop films in the star studded world of Bollywood. Whether it is the big budget films with mega stars or small budget entry level films, several productions failed to engage the audience. Here are some of the major flop films produced by Bollywood this year:
1.Besharam starring Ranbir Kapoor and made on a whopping budget of Rs 60 crores definitely tops the list of one of t he most expensive flops in 2013. The superstar reputation of the lead actor helped in amassing a huge opening day collection, but the film could not even triple this in its entire run.
2.Once upon a time in Mumbai dobaraa carried a lot of expectation. Even with a budget of 60 crores, it could not live up to its prequel and could not compete with Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express leased just a week ago.
3.Himmatwala starring Ajay Devgn was a remake of the original Jitendra – Sridevi starrer. While the original story was nothing special, the remake was downright infantile and the audience responded in kind. Though director Sajid Khan was confidfent of the film, it flopped rather badly.
4.Matru ke bijli ki mondola directed by Vishal Bhardwaj promised to be a good film with many star names linked to it, but it disappeared from the screens within two weeks of its release. Imran Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer turned out to be a major disappointment.
5.Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 is another prominent namein the flop list. This is rather surprising as director Sangeeth Sivan has earlier delivered quite good comedies. But this film was disappointing in all aspects.
6.Zanjeer the remake of the classic Amitabh Bachchan cult film was a major mistake from the get go. The audience was not at all interested in this Ram Charan Teja starrer and the film failed badly at box office.
7.Policegiri starring Sanjay Dutt was a remake of a Tamil film. It was average, but the audience decided to reject the film and though it started well, it quickly went downhill.
8.I, me aur main made in a budget of 10 crores is a rather puzzling story where the lead actor was confident of the film, but it disappeared from screens after the first week.
9.Shortcut Romeo starring Neil Nitin Mukesh and Ameesha Patel fared so badly that it was difficult to find a screen where it was released.
10. Ishkq in Paris was supposed to be the comeback film for Priety Zinta but made hardly any ripples in the box office.
