Bollywood's Top 10 FLOPS of 2016

Last updated on: December 28, 2016 11:03 IST

Kya Kool Hai Hum 3, Mirzya and Mohenjo Daro make the list.

The year 2016 saw its share of hits.

But quite a few films that were expected to do well failed at the box office.

Here's a look at the flops of 2016.

Mirzya
Box Office collection: Rs 11 crore

When Mirzya was announced, it made big news since Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra was going to introduce Anil Kapoor's son Harshvardhan in the film. It was also starring Kingfisher girl Saiyami Kher.

But the film could not deliver when it released. The hype during the promotions was also missing.

Rock On!! 2
Box Office collection: Rs 11.5 crore

Rock On!! 2 is one of those rare high profile films that could not garner any interest during its making, promotion or release.

The fact that it was a bad product further killed any prospects.

The word-of-mouth on the film was bad and it was totally rejected by audiences.

Great Grand Masti
Box Office collection: Rs 14 crore

Great Grand Masti is the peculiar case of a sequel not even making 15 percent business of a blockbuster franchise.

Grand Masti had done a business of 100 crore but Great Grand Masti failed to earn even 15 crore at the box office.

While piracy and censor cuts did impact it in a big way, it still doesn't explain why the adult comedy couldn't even make a decent collection!

Fitoor
Box Office collection: Rs 19 crore

Like Rock On!! 2, Fitoor was thanda right from its inception.

There were frequent casting changes -- Rekha was replaced by Tabu -- and the decision to cast Katrina Kaif opposite Aditya Roy Kapur misfired. They shared no chemistry at all.

The music didn't work either.

TE3N
Box Office collection: Rs 19 crore

Keeping aside the fact that TE3N is one of the most confusing titles that one has seen in a Hindi film, this Sujoy Ghosh production did not have much going for it even after a gripping trailer and a fantastic cast.

Amitabh Bachchan led the show in this dark affair, with talented actors like Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vidya balan lending able support, but the film missed acceptance from a large segment of the audience.

Kya Kool Hain Hum 3
Box Office collection: Rs 31 crore

Porn-com Kya Kool Hai Hum 3 took on Airlift at the box office and actually registered a good opening of Rs 8.15 crore.

But the word-of-mouth was poor and the collections started sliding at a rapid pace.

Beyond the franchise factor, nothing really worked for this Tusshar Kapoor and Aftab Shivdasani starrer.

Competition from Akshay Kumar's Airlift proved costly as well.

Baar Baar Dekho
Box Office collection: Rs 32 crore

Baar Baar Dekho had an interesting plot of Sidharth Malhotra's character going back and forth in time to find out the meaning of love and life.

But everything was lost in translation and eventually, it looked like a pretty film -- with a lot of help from Katrina Kaif! -- with no substance. 

The song Kaala Chashma was a rage, of course.

Ghayal Once Again
Box Office collection: Rs 40 crore

A delayed release, Ghayal Once Again was a decent product with some noteworthy sequences.

Unfortunately, it started badly and the climax looked very amateur. Word-of-mouth did not catch on and the Sunny Deol starrer could not cash in.

Mohenjo Daro
Box Office collection: Rs 58.5 crore

Hrithik Roshan and Ashutosh Gowariker coming together after Jodhaa Akbar was great news.

But the first promo killed the film in a big way.

Poor VFX, with an inane plot, bad costumes and poor historical detailing killed the film.

Fan
Box Office collection: Rs 85 crore

Shah Rukh Khan's Fan had a fabulous trailer which seemed to tell a novel story.

But the story was eventually too far-fetched and director Maneesh Sharma could not execute it well.

Of course, Shah Rukh's performance was noted.
