From 83 and Mohnejo Daro to the Bombay Velvet and Jagga Jasoos, the last decade (read 2011-2021) has seen its share of huge disasters in Bollywood. To be honest, several Bollywood films have been bitten by dust and have been described as box office disasters since 1953, when Sohrab Modi’s Jhansi Ki Rani was one of the first Hindi films to fall into the box office. As the years go by, the rate of disasters that occur and the amount of money they lose increases exponentially. And with the crazy amount of money circulating in Bollywood over the last 12-15 years, a movie that ends in disaster not only seriously affects trade, but also opens up a huge hole in the finances of producers and distributors, not to mention the crash. . the hopes of the exhibitors (read theater owners).
There are two types of movies that make money at the box office – the first, where the audience has little to no interest from the beginning, the medium to small budget rinses, which are dead on arrival in cinemas because they carry a zero buzz and are not really surprising many when rinsing is proven. Then there is the second type, which we will list today, the ones that are made on big budgets, have big stars, are relatively interesting, but either turn out to be dudes that sink after the first day a la Bombay Velvet or get great reviews, combined with amazing word of mouth, but just do not click with the masses in general due to many factors a la 83.
