We are halfway through the year, time passing by quickly like an unfriendly neighbor refusing to make eye contact. We've been welcomed with some great cinema, from Gully Boy to Avengers: Endgame. But the good is followed by bad, and here is our list of movies that didn't make an everlasting impression-
Kalank is probably the biggest disappointment of this year. The film was made with whopping budget of ₹ 150 crores but it failed to recover the cost. Even the huge starcast of the film was not able to save it.
Why Cheat India
Emraan Hashmi leads this crime-drama based on bureaucratic corruption in our education system, in what is a confusing and lagged storyline. The audience wasn't falling for this stale take, as it only managed a measly 9 crore against a 20 Crore budget.
Kanagan Ranaut starrer Manikarnika was released with lots of expectations but film faild to impress many. There were some controversies too which impacted film's business.
In a not-so-funny comedy that no one asked for, Arshad. Warsi plays a conman with 13 wives. The finally couldn't reach the one crore mark, falling flat on an estimated 15 crore budget.
The fact that this movie with a cast like Sushant Singh Rajput, Bhumi Pednekar, Manoj Bajpayee, Ranvir Shorey, and Ashutosh Rana with 'Udta Panjab' fame Abhishek Chaubey behind the camera failed to perform commercially leaves one completely boggled! The film engrossed 6.6 Crore for its 30 Crore budget.
India's Most Wanted
Arjun Kapoor's move to action genre went unnoticed by the masses as the movie only collected 15 Crores against a 37 Crore budget.
Ritesh Batra returned to his Bollywood roots after enjoying international success with 'The Sense of An Ending' (2017) and 'Our Souls at Night (2017) with Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra starrer 'Photograph'. The made a critical reception everywhere but here, only collecting 1.30 Crore in gross.
Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota
This offbeat film was never a product for mainstream consumption, and came as no surprise when it heavily tanked on Box-Office with a paltry collection of 2 crores.
Chuck Russell, who once made Jim Carrey starrer 'The Mask' seems to have hit a slump with the pathetic excuse of a film starring Vidyut Jammwal. It (somehow) made 24 Crore domestically against a 35 Crore budget.
Sums up the awareness of the release of this movie, as no one knew when it came out and disappeared. Starring Sunny Deol as an ATS an officer wasn't enticing for the audience, as it earned only 5 Crore against a 25 Crore budget.
Jhootha Kahin Ka
We won't be surprised if you haven't heard of this one. Smeep Kang, known for his massive success in Punjabi movies, makes a Hindi film debut no one cared about; with the Box-Office statistic of 10 Lakh collection against an 11 Crore budget speaking for itself.
Even Diljit Dosanjh can't save this trainwreck. Even though it was released recently, don't count on it to make a Box-Office splash. As of now, it has gathered an approximate 9.24 Crore for its 25 Crore budget.
