Bollywood's BIGGEST FLOPS of 2017 so far

Last updated on: June 28, 2017 18:09 IST

The year so far doesn't look too good at the .

The first half of 2017 saw its fair share of surprises and disappointments, some of which hurt Bollywood in a big way.

While a few big budget films bit the dust, the worst hit have been a flurry of medium-budgeted films that have just not managed to find audiences coming their way.

Films like Raabta -- in which Kriti Sanon, left, looked bewitching -- had promising trailers -- but failed to live up to expectations.

The biggest flops of the year thus far:

 

Raabta
Box office collection: Rs 27 crore

While it looked good and could have made Sushant Singh Rajput a bigger star, its content went for a toss. The period setting was especially rejected by audiences.

 

OK Jaanu
Box office collection: Rs 23.6 crore

While the Tamil romcom OK Kanmani found much success, its Bollywood remake wasn't as lucky.

Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor returned after Aashiqui 2, but audiences gave them a cold shoulder.

 

Rangoon
Box office collection: Rs 23 crore

Vishal Bhardwaj had set out to make a modern day Casablanca, but audiences were indifferent from day one.

 

Begum Jaan
Box office collection: Rs 20.75 crore

IMAGE: Vidya Balan, Gauahar Khan, Pallavi Sharda, Ila Arun in Begum Jaan.

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

 

Sarkar 3
Box office collection: Rs 9.50 crore

When was the last time an Amitabh Bachchan starrer made so little money?

 

Meri Pyaari Bindu
Box office collection: Rs 9.50 crore

IMAGE: Parineeti Chopra and Ayushmann Khurrana in Meri Pyaari Bindu.

The low budget and the sale of non-theatrical rights ensured that Meri Pyaari Bindu was a profitable production.

Its box office failure further cast a shadow on movie mogul Aditya Chopra's less than stellar recent record.

 

Bank Chor
Box office collection: Rs 8 crore

IMAGE: Riteish Deshmukh in Bank Chor.

Another Yash Raj flop.

Time we say for Adi to hire some fresh talent at YRF.

 

Noor
Box office collection: Rs 7.75 crore

IMAGE: Sonakshi Sinha and Purab Kohli in Noor.

Noor, despite Sonakshi Sinha in the title role, sank without notice.

 

Machine
Box office collection: Rs 3.15 crore

IMAGE: Kiara Advani and Mustafa Burmawala in Machine.

Why couldn't that trusted combo Abbas-Mustan deliver a hit for Abbas's son Mustafa?

Alas, Machine's lifetime score is less than the first day numbers for their lowest performing film.

 

Aa Gaya Hero
Box office collection: Rs 1 crore

IMAGE: Govinda in Aa Gaya Hero.

Govinda had hoped that his comeback film -- that was in the making for several years -- would salvage his career.

Sadly, it was a disaster.
