20 Biggest Flop Bollywood Movies of 2009

Posted by Kokolicious on December 30th, 2009

Another year draws to a conclusion but Bollywood does not have much reason to smile. It has been one of the worst years for the industry. There were some hits here and there, but the flops clearly outweighed them. We saw the most expensive movies end in smoke and the anticipated ones not delivering even an iota of what they promised. To add on to the misery, there was the long strife between the industry and the owners of multiplexes on how to share the revenue. Anyway, let’s have a look at the top biggest failures of the year 2009.

Tum Mile
When you are basing your story on the plight of the people of a city, it is almost immoral that you do not highlight that plight, which is the Mumbai floods of 2007. Perhaps this is the worst film from the Bhatt camp. And Soha Ali Khan, just when we started considering her as an actor of substance, like Tabu, it is unbelievable that she would do a movie like this. Well, Emraan Hashmi is quite popular with the ladies, but that cannot be the only strong point of a movie!


Aa Dekhen Zara
One never stops wondering why did the producer choose such an odd timing for the release of the movie. After all, why would he choose the time when the tension was high between the multiplex owners and the industry? The movie could not even have an opening at many places. And when you do not have any competitor, you attract all the critics to yourself. By the way, don’t you think Neil Nitin Mukesh and Bipasha Basu is a very odd pair?

Dil Bole Hadippa
What was supposed to be sweet comeback almost became a sad final farewell for Rani Mukherjee. Well, Rani had worked really hard for this film and as usual, she looked great. But nothing came to the aid of this desi version of She’s The Man. Besides, the humour behind gender change is obsolete now. It’s juvenile.
Kal Kissne Dekha
If we look at the timing of the release of this movie, then it should have walked away with all the cash. It was one of the first releases after the long strife between the industry and the multiplex owners over the sharing of the revenue. It is like a plan to do a Rakesh Roshan to his son by Vashu Bhagnani went awry. Not every son is a Hrithik Roshan. And the theme of seeing past and future? Give us a break!
8×10 Tasveer
This movie was different from the movies which Akshay Kumar had been doing. Maybe it was too different for the people to even accept it. They say, one of the most effective way to deal with horror movies is to leave it open to interpretation, rest, the audience’s own imagination will do. But here, director Nagesh Kuknoor left it too open ended, they needed some points from where they could start. They came out all lost.
Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Naa almost convinced us that we are about to have another superstar. But this movie was a sad anti-climax for this nephew of Aamir Khan. We were also waiting for the debut of Kamal Hassan’s daughter, Shruti Hassan. Well, it just turns out to be the wrong launchpad for her career.
Madhur Bhandarkar‘s movie is always a success, at least in one aspect. Mostly, his films score high on critical aspect. This movie was also marketed using this aspect. But as the name would have suggested, it did not have any pace in it and the audience was slowly driven to boredom. Controversies regarding nudity is supposed to do good for the movie. Unfortunately, no one seemed to bother about that, not even the censor board.
De Dana Dan
This movie had a fairly good opening but could not sustain for long at the box office. The trio of Akshay-Suniel-Paresh is not funny anymore. One more movie and they will start to get annoying. Maybe time for Priyadarshan to come up with something new altogether. Hera Pheri was classic, but De Dana Dan, it is the complete opposite of it. And Katrina Kaif, inspite of her status, just looks like a misfit amidst these comic trio.
Perhaps it is high time that directors stop exploiting Cricket. We all know that in this country it is more than religion. It is a part of our lives, but that does not necessarily mean it is an interesting part. We already had amazing classics on this theme like Lagaan, which even went for the Oscars. The theme has been too overplayed. One more movie on this and we will be sick and tired of it.
This movie is an example of a very bad handling of a very outdated theme. Nothing could make it any newer neither appealing. Sometimes, our own Big B turns up with ridiculous movies that one feels like asking him ‘why’? And Sanjay Dutt? He is supposed to be the baddie of the movie. But his costume was more fitted for a jester than a crime lord. Fantasy is something which the industry is yet to learn, let alone master it.
Acid Factory
When was the last time White Feather Films gave us a hit? It was multi-starrer Kaante, way back in 2002. This camp includes big names like Sanjay Dutt, Mahesh Manjarekar and Sanjay Gupta. But after their magnum opus Kaante, the quality of their production seems to be declining with every movie.
Billu Barber
These days we do not quite expect Shahrukh Khan and Irrfan Khan to deliver flops. They delivered powerful perfomance here too. But the movie being  flop inspite of this is not a surprise. If it was just a powerful performance by an actor which makes a movie work, then there is no doubt that Billu Barber would have worked. It was the star power of Shahrukh which did its bit of drawing the crowd, and their shock is as much as ours to find that the movie is about Irrfan Khan who plays Billu! And not to mention the glamourous Lara Dutta trying hard to play rustic. She could not do it in Mumbai Se Aaya Mera Dost, she could not do it here either.
Kambakkht Ishq
Was it fair to expect Sylvester Stallone to save a Bollywood movie with a cameo appearance? Don’t know about that, but all we know is that he could not. By the way it was one of the most anticipated movie of the year. This movie got all the hype one can ever expect. Not only that, it had all the glam and gloss. What it did not have was substance. The director tried to sweep it under the carpet with all the possible means, but the audience is not stupid. They saw it right through.
Main Aurr Mrs Khanna
Salman Khan was riding high on his recent glory which he got from Wanted, which was an unexpected success. Maybe, if you can have unexpected success, then you can very well have unexpected failure also. The movie did not even have a decent opening, which many other flops of the year at least managed to get. Their are many things where one can place the blame. First of all, the pairing of Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor did not result into any chemistry at all. Even the promotion itself of the movie was questioned. Salman Khan was not the protagonist of the movie, it was Sohail Khan. Yet the promos convinced us of that. The audience felt duped.
What’s Your Raashee?
What is common in Lagaan, Swades and Jodhaa-Akbar? They all were successes both commercially and critically, and directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar. But What’s Your Rashee? does not just fit into his profile. It is like the odd-man-out. Experimentation is fine, but there is something called constancy too. It almost seems as if he has run out of ideas. Otherwise why would he take up an outdated theme? And what is this casting of Priyanka Chopra in twelve different roles? Was it with the intent of overdosing the audience with her or to set up a Guiness Record? We can expect Govinda and Mahmood doing this, but Priyanka Chopra and Ashutosh Gowarikar! Unpardonable.
London Dreams
Vipul Amrutlal Shah made us laugh till our stomachs hurt and cry till our eyes went sore with Waqt. It became a household movie, which both the young and the old could sit together and enjoy thoroughly. This was a much bigger project than Waqt. Waqt was appreciated for the aptness of the casting. Even the minor characters were portrayed with much perfection, like that of Laxman played by Rajpal Yadav. In London Dreams, sheer injustice was done to the casting, specially that of Ajay Devgan. All his intensity was misplaced. But what outdid even this was the flimsy script, too many loopholes in it. In other words, nothing was convincing about the movie. And when the movie is a musical, you cannot have a bad background score and that is exactly what Shankar-Eshaan-Loy did!
Delhi 6
I guess it is the promising directors who disappoint the most. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra became the voice of the nation with Rang De Basanti and it is almost unforgivable that his next movie would be such a disappointment. The biggest drawback of the movie was his preachy tone. Common man would certainly think ‘What’s gotten into him?’ They were not at all happy with the moral self-righteousness of the director. Besides, he took too many sub-plots into consideration and consequently, could not do justice to any one of them. Maybe he should have saved all the different sub-plots for different movies, and not try to cramp all of them into one.
Chandni Chowk to China
When people went to see this movie, people wondered,"What happened to the Nikhil Advani who delivered a blockbuster like Kal Ho Na Ho?" Before this movie, Akshay Kumar was on a golden run of successes. The director perhaps thought of joining that run which actually turned out to be an utter fiasco for both of them. The charm of Nikhil Advani had ended long time back when he delivered the biggest flop of 2007, Salaam-e-ishq and with this movie we saw the waning away of Akki’s charm too.
Bollywood should stop banking too much on real life couples and think that it would work like a mantra. It does not work always. There have been many disasters in the past. If those were not enough, this one should come as one huge warning. At least the pairing should fit the context. There was no particular reason why Saif and Kareena was paired, except for the fact that they are an off-screen couple. That apart, even the whole treatment of the film, including the promos was not done right. It was too serious a movie.
This movie just proved that what a bad spender Bollywood is! It is sad to see the most expensive film ever go down like this. This movie had everything, mind blowing special effects, breathtaking locales, amazing cinematography and a wizard of a music composer. It could have given any Hollywood movie a run. Unfortunately, it was not the case. The audience rejected it right away. It lacked one essential thing which makes a movie a movie, a good script. All the big names like Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt and even the wizard, A.R.Rahman could not save it.
