8 Bollywood Movies That Prove A Big Budget Doesn’t Always Guarantee Success

Well, it is not that easy to make a movie, and that too a good one. From finding the right script to the right producer to the best cast and marketing team, a good movie is a product of collaborative efforts of many people working together. And with Bollywood, time and again, big budget movies have been made with grandeur, mega sets, multiple star casts and phenomenal shooting locations.

While a big budget does raise curiosity and eyebrows, many times, the money invested does not guarantee sure shot success at the box office. Just like these 8 movies that were made on very high budgets, but sadly, didn’t work.

1. Agneepath (1990)

The movie was made on quite a budget for its time but even Amitabh Bachchan’s impeccable acting skills as ‘Vijay Deenanath Chauhan’ couldn’t make people love the story. Once again, Agneepath was re-enacted with Hrithik Roshan, but guess we are just not that interested in Kancha!

2. Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja

The Sridevi starrer was known for being made on a lucrative budget. But even good casting and investments, people didn’t like it.

3. Drona

The movie had some interesting special effects creating a visible interest in public and could have been pulled off better. Even with a big budget and a well to do script backing it up, the movie went flop.

4. Love Story 2050

While we have no qualms about this one getting beaten up at the box office, the fact that the movie looked at the future with its sci-fi elements and a so-called real/reel love story between Harman Baweja and Priyanka Chopra, couldn’t save this one. This was clearly a lesson well-learned about touching the sci-fi genre in Bollywood. Either pull it off well or just stay away!

5. Bombay Velvet

Was it Karan Johar and his little stint at acting or the whole idea about thinking about manifesting this movie in real, Bombay Velvet’s demise at the box office stays a mystery yet to be unfolded. Clearly, this one is going to be a case study for those learning cinema!

6. Rangoon

Despite the fact that it was a Vishal Bhardwaj directorial with the finest casting with Kangana Ranaut, Shahid Kapoor, and Saif Ali Khan, the movie sadly could not win the public’s heart. Even the passionate scenes between Shahid and Kangana could not save the film from getting badly crashed at the box office.

7. Jagga Jasoos

Well, the movie was a first musical in Bollywood and clearly wasn’t received with a lot of gusto in the country. Despite it having a lot of similarities with its predecessor, Barfi, in its locales and aura, the movie was a flop.

8. Jab Harry Met Sejal

Shah Rukh Khan, Red Chillies Entertainment, Imtiaz Ali, nothing, absolutely nothing could save this one. The story went a little overboard and nobody understood why are we still watching clueless protagonist finding the purpose of life through a woman, once again.

Clearly, a movie needs much more than just overflowing money to make it work! Here are 10 low budget movies that were blockbusters and super hit at the box office.
