A demeanour during some Bollywood films from a calendar that were evidently high on expectations though low on roughly all else
Going by perfect comparison, this year saw range for investigation within a proportions of a industry. There were some sparkling moves by dauntless filmmakers. On a downside, a some regulars unsuccessful miserably during what they customarily do best. And by regulars, we meant a Bollywood stars who sell a film usually on their merit. 2013 saw utterly a few examples where films featuring large names weren’t means to make a lift in a right direction. HitList points out a few…
Director: Prabhu Dheva
Downfall: While you’re reading, this no-brainer is presumably minting income in your circuitously cinema gymnasium though a fact stays that there is frequency any cinematic value to a film. Since a altogether grounds is a adore story (compared to a over-the-top violence), it’s also value indicating out that there is frequency an iota of chemistry between a lead actors in a film.
Director: Abhinav Kashyap
Downfall: Before this masala hop released, there was a clever notice that Ranbir Kapoor can’t presumably go wrong with a choice of a script. And afterwards this film released. However, his opening in this unmemorable bid was still appreciated. But a film wasn’t. Nevertheless a moolah it captivated and a mount a actor took along with a executive helped their box a bit. At any rate, a cliches a film in doubt had weren’t perceived kindly.
Director: Sajid Khan
Downfall: Hubris can take a complicated toll. This sold film is a primary instance of such leaning. During a pre-release interviews, a executive went on record claiming that he was aiming for R200 crore. The aam janta clearly weren’t amused possibly by what they listened and saw. Besides, it also reinforced a faith that remakes are improved limited to imports from South India.
‘Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara!’
Director: Milan Luthria
Downfall:Releasing a week after Chennai Express, a underworld-meets-romance tale indiscriminately gimlet a brunt of a successful – if not improved – film. But then, nobody was to be blamed when a product itself didn’t click with a open on a scale a makers were formulation for. All things pronounced and done, it done money. And humorous how Imran Khan was allocated a tumble man for a gigantic debacle!
Director: Apoorva Lakhia
Downfall: First thing first, because disaster with a classic? Second thing second, because disaster with a classic? Particularly when we don’t have a wherewithal to understanding with a strenuous climb. It didn’t come tighten to what it set out to achieve. Starring Ram Charan (who done his Bollywood entrance with a remake) and Priyanka Chopra, a film lacked a really mixture that done a 1973 strange what it is remembered for today.
‘Yamla Pagla Deewana 2’
Director: Sangeeth Sivan
Downfall: Do sequels always work? Going by a stats, a answer is a resounding no. This movement comedy was quietly promoted as a ‘Deol venture’ with Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol starring together to torment your humorous bone. By a finish of a initial weekend, a reviews and feedbacks were unanimously shouting during a really thought of creation such a absurd film.
Director: KS Ravikumar
Downfall: Miserable is a word to go with this South remake. Casting an tasteless span of Sanjay Dutt and a most younger Prachi Desai was usually one of a film’s mistake pas. There were many some-more to follow as a film starts with a high actor blending idlis with beer; a rest of it is zero reduction than a retinal embarrassment.
Director: Rajkumar Gupta
Downfall: For some reason, whenever Amit Trivedi is a mind behind a song of a film, it’s reputed that a try will click. Well, it doesn’t always. Moreover, Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan simply couldn’t offer a saving beauty to this temperate torment comedy. There was a thick cloud of beating left behind as critics and masses were awaiting too most from a duo.
‘Ek Thi Daayan’
Director: Kannan Iyer
Downfall: Before this abnormal thriller could even strech a marquee, there were a clever hum doing a rounds that it was ostensible to surpass as no other film expelled on a Friday it did. Regardless, a try unsuccessful to gain most on a rather renouned expel including Emraan Hashmi, Huma Qureshi, Konkona Sen Sharma and Kalki Koechlin. Leaving a unmemorable route behind, lukewarm incited into a keyword.
Director: Ram Gopal Varma
Downfall: Whenever one stands adult to criticize Ramu, Satya (1998) unintentionally becomes a anxiety indicate for a filmmaker what he was once and a one he seems today. After this supplement strike a (emptier) theatres, one couldn’t assistance wondering because sequels – like remakes – is all set to turn a huffy subject in a not-so-distant future.
‘The Attacks of 26/11’
Director: Ram Gopal Varma
Downfall: When Ramu announced his enterprise to constraint India’s misfortune militant conflict on a celluloid, there was an atmosphere of terror around interjection to his new lane record. And he didn’t defect his detractors. The film looked like a diseased doppelganger of what it could have been. A rambling attempt. Butt of jokes withstanding, a critics panned it and a audiences avoided it like epidemic.
‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’
Director: Vishal Bharadwaj
Downfall: The usually thing extraordinary about this differently forgettable film was a title. And a subject it tackled in pieces and pieces. Though installed with pre-release hype given Bhardwaj (with films like Omkara and Kaminey to his credit) was helming a project, a concentration was also on Imran Khan and Anushka Sharma. But when it non-stop in a January, there was an underwhelming greeting from roughly all directions.
