Bollywood jodis that didn’t work at the box office.

+1 vote

It is constantly great to see another pair sentiment on screen. It offers freshness to an oft-trodden class of sentiment. In an industry where performers are being dispatched consistently, Bollywood has choices to match up any attractive stars in different changes and mixes! 

Obviously, there is likewise a probability that not each pair would engage the moviegoers, regardless of how effective every star might be and regardless of the fact that they exclusively have an enormous after. Reprimand it on the absence of science, poor scripting or the absence of potential in the plot for their science to build up, a couple of these sets don't figure out how to awe the viewers.

Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt

Notwithstanding the sponsorship of Anurag Kashyap, Karan Johar and Vikramaditya Motwane and coordinated by Queen popularity Vikas Bahl, Shaandaar neglected to awe either the commentators or the fans! Despite the fact that it had a tall tale sentiment at its center, an attractive pair in Shahid and Alia, the peculiar screenplay was not upto everybody's taste. Shahid and Alia are again combined up in Udta Punjab, so seek they are fortunate after each other the second time around!


Aditya Roy Kapur – Katrina Kaif

The trailer was great, the tunes were brilliant, and Katrina was solid with Aditya, at any rate before the film discharged. However when the film turned out, none of the perspectives that pulled in us to the film could figure out how to rescue the fiasco the motion picture was. Point the finger at it on the normal exhibitions (with the exception of Tabu) and the deadened heading, Fitoor was one of 2016′s calamity! Both Katrina and Aditya need one gigantic hit to rescue their vocations!


Ranveer Singh – Parineeti Chopra

Despite the fact that Parineeti was dispatched in Ranveer Singh's Ladies versus Ricky Bahl (that was a failure also), it was just in Kill Dil that they were combined impractically. What's more, what a debacle it ended up being, almost slowing down Parineeti's vocation! Despite the fact that it was delivered by YRF, who dispatched both the stars, the film neglected to allure the viewers, notwithstanding when Parineeti went the glitz route for the part!


Arjun Kapoor – Sonakshi Sinha

Despite the fact that they were connected with each other when the motion picture was set to discharge, none of their science was noticeable when the film hit the marquee. In spite of the fact that the change of a well known Tamil film, Tevar never figured out how to click with the North indian groups of onlookers, even with Arjun Kapoor calling himself Salman Ka Fan!


Ranbir Kapoor – Anushka Sharma

Bombay Velvet could have been our Casablanca, however what it ended up being was a gorgeous wannabe perfect work of art! Both Anushka and Ranbir looked miscast, and significantly together they couldn't wow the viewers! We should trust they figure out how to redress this in their up and coming film, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil!


Ayushmann Khurrana – Sonam Kapoor

Indeed, even a swimsuit clad Sonam Kapoor, two or three kissing scenes and a brilliant Rishi Kapoor, this Meet The Parents' motivated flick didn't figure out how to meet the desires of the movies. In spite of the fact that Ayushmann and Sonam weren't terrible as a couple, the jodi didn't have enough energy to maneuver the gathering of people into the theater!


Imran Khan – Kangana Ranaut

It's truly terrible that the attractive and humble performer made is rebound through this disgracefully composed sentimental show, loaded with each banality there is. With respect to Kangana Ranaut, would we be able to ever censure her for adhering to movies that emphasis on her?

They say you win a few and you lose a few. The year 2015 saw a mess of movies which held a great deal of guarantee and made a ton of buzz before its discharge yet failed out in the blink of an eye as they could scarcely hold the gathering of people's consideration. A few movies were over-built up and advertised forcefully yet turned duds because of low on substance. A few them could simply earn back the original investment however will go down as soggy squibs in the last investigation. Chiefs like R. Balki and Dibakar Banerjee who were relied upon to think of victors disillusioned their fans. We take a gander at ten such movies (overall accumulations) which were anxiously anticipated before discharge yet didn't go all the way leaving viewers frustrated. 


Shaandaar (Budget – 70 Crore, Grossed – 51 Crore) 

Vikas Bahl's directorial after the much fruitful 'Ruler', "Shaandaar" discharged amid Dushehra on 22nd October. Touted to be one of the costly movies of the year it just declined to take off. In spite of the fact that it got the matching of Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt surprisingly on screen, the science simply didn't work leaving the gatherings of people exposed.


Tevar (Budget – 85 Crore, Grossed – 56 Crore) 

The principal huge spending arrival of 2015 which opened on ninth January began off promisingly however couldn't maintain its run. A change of the Telugu hit 'Okkadu', Arjun Kapoor was combined with Sonakshi interestingly yet their science turned frosty. The main redeeming quality was Manoj Bajpai who put in a splendid execution as the enemy. 


Shamitabh (Budget – 25 Crore, Grossed – 22.46 Crore) 

R. Balki's Amitabh and Dhanush starrer which discharged on the sixth February was a non-starter from the very beginning. The thought was novel yet the screenplay went no place. Much was normal from the executive who gave us 'Cheeni Kum' and "Paa" yet passed up a major opportunity this time. 


Roy (Budget – 40 Crore, Grossed – 44.52 Crore) 

Discharged on thirteenth February, executive Vikramjit's anticipation show "Roy" pretty much made back the initial investment in the cinematic world. The film however had star esteem as Arjun Rampal and Ranbir Kapoor yet it exited viewers befuddled as they were not able choose on the off chance that it was a romantic tale or a tension show. The music fared superior to the film. 


Detective Byomkesh Bakshy (Budget – 35 Crore, Grossed – 36 Crore) 

A Yash Raj generation coordinated by recompense winning chief Dibakar Banerjee was discharged on third April. A considerable measure of consideration was given to its creation esteem than its substance. The groups of onlookers couldn't associate with Bengal's most loved imaginary criminologist. In any case a valiant exertion gone vain. 


Mr. X (Budget – 35 Crore, Grossed – 25 Crore) 

Vishesh Films 'Mr. X' had its most loved serial kisser, Emraan Hashmi assuming the title part of Mr. Undetectable which discharged on the seventeenth April. The film had just the same old thing new to offer aside from its embellishments and 3D vision. Another failure from the "Bhatt" creation house. 


Bombay Velvet (Budget – 120 Crore, Grossed – 31.85 Crore) 

Anurag Kashyap's retro interpretation of vintage Bombay was discharged on the fifteenth May which featured Ranbir Kapoor with Anushka Sharma interestingly. The generation qualities were better than average including the sets which gave a look of Mumbai of the 60's. 'Bombay Velvet' simply didn't have enough start to set the movies ablaze. A noteworthy frustration from the free thinker chief. 


All Is Well (Budget – 33 Crore, Grossed – 37.10 Crore) 

Umesh Shukla's second directorial after the fruitful 'Goodness! My God' had Rishi Kapoor, Abhishek Bachchan and Asin in the number one spot parts. Discharged on the 21st August, the flick was an 'enjoyment on the run' sort parody which was great in spots however didn't make the effect it was required to. 


Hero (Budget – 50 Crore, Grossed – 33.37 Crore) 

Subhash Ghai's clique change of 1983, "Hero" got discharged on eleventh September which presented the pair of Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty. Co-delivered by Salman Khan, the film neglected to snatch any eye-balls as the gatherings of people liked to return to the Jackie-Meenakshi starrer at the end of the day. 


Katti Batti (Budget – 40 Crore, Grossed – 24.41 Crore) 

Nikhil Advani's interpretation of live-in relationship discharged on the eighteenth September was a moderate starter yet came up short on gas as the group of onlookers didn't discover anything novel in the script. The blending of Imran Khan and Kangana managed to get a couple snickers however wasn't sufficient to rake in the moolah for its makers. 


Often, after  producing a blockbuster, our bollywood movie producers are tormented by doing a sequel. Some of the time these sequels hit and sometimes they miss. Here are a some of the sequels which weren't up to the mark



Golmaal Returns

"Golmaal" was entertaining all around. Indeed, even the peak was shot interestingly. In any case, 'Golmaal Returns' wasn't as clever as its antecedent. The cleverness was constrained and it was truly hard to giggle at those jokes. Additionally, the motion picture stereotyped ladies in different ways. The main humorous minute in this motion picture was the point at which the lead performing artists masquerade as ladies. 


Golmaal 3

This motion picture didn't achieve both its antecedents' level. The motion picture had a lousy storyline which was overdosed with tasteless jokes. Likewise, the negligible battles between the lead on-screen characters didn't help by any stretch of the imagination. The motion picture is lousiest in the whole arrangement. 


Bheja Fry 2

This continuation wasn't totally terrible. Be that as it may, the motion picture could have been something more. In spite of the fact that, the motion picture creators endeavored at making this film amusing, they weren't absolutely effective. It can be observed once. 


Don 2 : The King is Back

Wear's astonishment finishing raised the eyebrows of numerous cinegoers. Notwithstanding, Don 2 didn't awe numerous. In spite of the fact that the film was business achievement, it was a basic disappointment. The motion picture was intensely affected by 'Sea's 11'. Likewise, the executive, Farhan Akhtar, neglected to disclose in the matter of why Asia's mafia sovereign transforms into a criminal. What's more, notwithstanding being a mafia bigshot, Don (Shahrukh) does everything, including the unimportant things, for example, getting the medication dispatches. In general, this spin-off was an immense frustration 


Jannat 2

Jannat 2 has made this rundown simply because of its story. The execution of Imran Hashmi and Randeep Hooda are great however they aren't sufficient to spare the motion picture. Jannat had an unusual story yet Jannat 2 here had an anticipated story which neglects to awe. Other than that, the motion picture is great. In any case, somewhat more exertion could have improved this motion picture 


Jism 2

This boorish film is exhausting. Sunny Leone, previous obscene performing artist, was given a role as the main woman of this continuation. Be that as it may, her well proportioned looks don't rescue this film. The screenplay, story and music were taken care of inadequately by debutante' executive Pooja Bhatt. On an entire, it is a forgettable toll. 


Yamla Pagla Deewana 2

Subsequent to scoring an astonishment hit with 'Yamla Pagla Deewana', Dharmendra chose to do 'Yamla Pagla Deewana 2'. The motion picture had Dharmendra and his children, Sunny and Bobby, ahead of the pack parts. Not at all like its antecedent, the motion picture was a failure. The motion picture wasn't clever and it had a typically frail story. 


Race 2

Race was amazing. In spite of the fact that, it was a freemake of 'Farewell Lover', "Race" was very much coordinated. However, 'Race 2' doesn't achieve that level by any stretch of the imagination. The motion picture battles to awe the gathering of people with its anticipated turns. What's great in this motion picture is Saif and John Abraham's contention. Other than that the motion picture is average. 


Murder 3

Murder 3 was an Indian psychological thriller film and the sequel to the 2011 film, Murder 2. Directed by Vishesh Bhatt and produced by Mukesh Bhatt from Vishesh Films. This is the third installment in the series and unlike its predecessors, this edition is an official remake - of the Colombian thriller The Hidden Face. Murder 3 was released on 15 February 2013 to mixed reviews. The film performed moderately well at the box office.

Besharam is another Ranbir Kapoor film which was made with a financial plan of around 85 crores. Despite everything we ponder what was so costly in this film? Ranbir wore the most unpleasant garments ever, so plainly, closet didn't get the cash. Anyway, the film floundered as it could just produce 35 crores.



Blue had a financial plan of 129 crores. It featured Sanjay Dutt and Akshay Kumar, who for beyond any doubt charge bombs for movies. The Icing on the top was the melody Chiggy-Wiggy by Kylie Minogue who charged 6.5 crores for her two moment appearance. Be that as it may, the motion picture didn't awe individuals and they left Blue with red. irate countenances.



Kambakkht Ishq made a decent attempt! The motion picture featured Kareena Kapoor Khan and Akshay Kumar furthermore had cameo parts by Hollywood performing artists like Brandon Routh, Denise Richards and considerably Slyvester Stallone. Having Hollywood performing artists mean a major gap in the makers pocket. Kambakkht Ishq was made with around 60 crores yet could just gain half of the contributed cash.



Bombay Velvet was a fantasy venture for Anurag Kashyap. It featured Ranbir Kapoor, Karan Johar and Anushka Sharma. Regardless of how great the cinematography of a film is (and it truly was), if the story isn't incredible, the motion picture will slump. In the wake of being putting in 125 crores, the motion picture could just win 25. Yes! You read that privilege.



Shaandaar looked encouraging when the trailer discharged. Featuring Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, the motion picture appeared to be a tall tale romantic tale however it didn't coordinate up to the creative energy. The exhausting film made individuals rest off in the theater. Made with 75 crores, the motion picture couldn't win back portion of its speculation.



Kites featuring Hrithik Roshan, Bárbara Mori and Kangana Ranaut had a colossal spending plan of 150 crores. With outside areas and a stunning Mexican performing artist, the Rakesh Roshan film guaranteed a considerable measure. However the drained, dormant story couldn't spare the sinking film and it slumped in the cinematic world, no doubt.

The film's music, every single melody, took the country by contend tempest, and still sounds as crisp and sentimental even today as it did decades prior! Aashiqui was the romantic tale of two youthful sweethearts, played by Rahul Roy and Anu Aggarwal. They both opened their Bollywood accounts with the sentiment adventure.
