Every movie that is made has an aim to hit bull’s eye at the Box Office. Some hit accurately, some go close, some manage to just satisfy, but some really disappoint and we end up calling them disasters. If much hype isn’t created and the movies just come and go, it wouldn’t matter much to us. But, if a proper hype is created and then the movie doesn’t reach the bare minimum expectations, they fall flat at the box office.
These don’t happen with small movies because we have no clue of what the movie is going to be anyways. But, those biggies – they do come with lot of expectations and they come at those times when the audience is eagerly waiting to get entertained. Now instead of ‘The End’, if the audience read an imaginary word ‘KLPD’ at the end credits, they really get frustrated and throw the movie flat on the ground. Going back in timeline, here are those biggies which fell flat, literally FLAT at the box office.
1. BIG BOSS
Chiru was in his peaks and Big Boss came with lots of expectations back then. It failed miserably and turned out to be the biggest disaster in Chiru’s career.
2. SEEMA SIMHAM
After the faction trend picked up and Balayaa cracking hard with Samarasimha Reddy and Narasimhanaidu, the third one back fired big time and ended up being a disaster in Balayya’s career
A much hyped movie which was part of the Sankranthi Race in 2001, failed to live upto expectations and turned out to be a debacle.
4. TAKKARI DONGA
Jayanth C Paranjee took all precautions around this first big venture being the producer too for this one apart from directing it himself. But, unfortunately it didn’t work out according to the hype that it created and lost out to Tarun’s Nuvvu Leka Nenu Lenu in the 2002 Sankranthi race.
This was coming right after PK delivered Kushi, which was an industry hit. A lot of hype and expectations were created around this. Infact this was the first movie to come up with a proper trailer, which was a rare scene then in TFI. And it simply bombed falling flat from the first show itself.
Arranging exclusive trains for the fans to attend the audio release of this one was itself which is even unbelievable now. After rising to heights with Idiot and Amma Nanna O Tamil Ammai, this was Puri’s collaboration with Jr. NTR and obviously the hype too was at its peaks.
7. OKKA MAGAADU
This one too was part of the Sankranthi race and with the first looks and the huge cast, YVS Chowdary let our imaginations break open the roof. One of the big disasters in Balayya’s career again.
After Magadheera, Allu Arvind looked to repeat the same with Allu Arjun and spent a lot on this one. Apparently Chinni Krishna went to Himalayas and wrote this story. Wonder how serious he took his job. Somehow people couldn’t digest the fact that Allu Arjun in that avtar and it finally ended up being a disaster.
Prabhas’s looks were just kickass in this one. His looks, walks etc in that trailer were really stylish and this generated a lot of hype. But, on the other end it was Lawrence who not only handled the direction but also the music. Seriously, MUSIC?? And after the movie release it was just banging your head against the wall. Neat disaster.
This was unexpected from a combination which just delivered a blockbuster like Dookudu. Later did we discover that the writers and the directors had a spat and this was the result of it.
There are many more but we just picked up the those which were on the top 10 list. If you have any other movies which you felt were even worse and shattered your expectations please let comment on the section below.
