Big-budget Bollywood Movies That Failed

Anurag Kashyap may be getting rave reviews for his performance as the antagonist in the film Akira, but that has not helped him overcome the disaster called Bombay Velvet. Even today, the director talks about how he failed everyone associated with the movie, especially the lead actor, Ranbir Kapoor. The movie will go down as one of the biggest failures in Bollywood as the monetary loss was huge due to its extravagant budget. In fact, many movies were termed as flops only because of the amount spent on making them. They did get a good opening but never managed to recover the costs of production. Read on to know more about these films. 

Love Story 2050


Touted to be one of the best sci-fi Bollywood films ever, this 2008 release sank without a trace. The movie marked the debut of Harman Baweja and the actor barely worked in any films after this one. 



After the successful film, Guru, the trio – Mani Ratnam, Abhishek Bachchan, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan – returned with Raavan. The film was supposed to be a turning point in Abhishek's career. Unfortunately, negative reviews and bad word-of-mouth made Raavan one of the biggest flops of 2010.



When you have Anil Kapoor, Salman Khan, and Katrina Kaif in a film that’s directed by Subhash Ghai, you’d expect it to be a blockbuster. But the 2008 movie, Yuvvraaj, was rejected by the audience and even A. R. Rahman’s brilliant score couldn’t change its fate. 



This film marked the return of Bollywood's most loved jodi – Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale took a bumper opening at the box-office but since Bajirao Mastani got better reviews, the collections dipped in the next few days.  

Dil Dhadakne Do


A multi-starrer that features some of the industry's biggest names, helmed by the director whose last film was the super hit – Zindagi Naa Milegi Dobara. Well, Dil Dhadakne Do had everything going for it. The trailer created the necessary hype and the songs were topping the charts, too. However, due to its lavish production values, it became tough for Zoya Akhtar's movie to recover costs.
