If we take a look at 2017, it is easy to conclude that this year has been nothing short of a disaster for Bollywood. Even though filmmakers tried their hands at concept-based films like Raabta or realistic films like Haseena Parkar, nothing seemed to have struck a chord with the audience. As the year is coming to an end, here’s a list of films that really disappointed us this year.
Raees: Shah Rukh Khan starting off 2017, what else would one want? Well, the film did the unexpected. The film minted money at the box office, thanks to Shah Rukh’s fans, but as far as the story goes, the film was a disappointment. To add insult to injury, Shah Rukh’s gangster role was nothing to write home about and Mahira Khan’s potential was underused.
Rangoon: We all had high hopes from this film and perhaps that is the one basic reason why we all came out of the theater utterly disappointed. We loved Kangana Ranaut but it seems in order to glorify her, Vishal Bharadwaj forgot to pay dues to Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor who have given him his best – Haider, Omkara and many more. The tale fails to bring out the magic Vishal is known for.
