With one and a half months still left, 2007 has been a year filled with mega hyped movies. The audience didn’t get what they expected.” But for how long will these “big budget weak story line” movies work. Indian audience has become choosy. Foreign locations, extravagant sets, designer clothes do not guarantee success on the box office.
Here’s IF’s list of “super marketed bombed on the box office” flicks.
The recent of them all is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya, launching Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor. The movie boasts of romance, songs, dances and of course super good looking Ranbir. But the story failed to impress our Aam Janta.
Next in line was Nikhil Advani’s Salame-E-Ishq starring big names Salman Khan, Priyanka Chopra">Priyanka Chopra, John Abraham, Vidya Balan, Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla and the like. But the half cooked script and editor’s complacency to chop unimportant roles left the audience yawning.
Not far behind is YashRaj production’s “Tara Rum Pum” directed by Sidharth Anand. Saif Ali Khan in red race suit and slim Rani Mukerji failed to create an impact. It didn’t do as well as a YashRaj movie is expected to do.
Next is Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s “Eklavya” starring Big B did not generate much interest among the audience and the film had nothing to be proud of except India’s Official Oscar Entry.
“Jhoom Barabar Jhoom” Doomed in the box office. The film had couple of good songs. Abhishek’s moustache, Big B’s Johnny Depp look and ample of unfunny scenes just didn’t get the movie going commercially.
Ram Gopal Varma ki Aag tops the list of “Disastrous Remake” of the year. Somebody please tell RGV that there is one “Sholay” (august 1975), one Basanti, unmatchable friendship of Jai and Veeru and just one Gabbar.
Pradeep Sarkar’s “Laaga Chunri Mein Daag” was far fetched where the girl constantly believes that she has no option but to turn to prostitution. (Give me a break!)
Last but not the least; it is
Anurag Kashyap’s “No Smoking” starring John Abraham. The film will leave you dazed
and wonder what the director was thinking (or smoking) while making this movie.
Wish the director chose a different title, “No Story Only Smoking”.

Tara rum pum was a very good movie..... I really enjoyed watching it.......All others were really really boring......Aag was most horrible....... I still love the songs of jhoom barabar jhoom........jbj was a meaningless story.........I dint watch laaga chunari mein daag........
SAAWARYA WAS A SLOW MOVIE.LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAG,ONLY SONGS WERE GOOD.AAG WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FLOP.NO SMOKING WAS A TERRIBLE MOVIE.EKLAVYA WAS TOO MUCH BORING.TARARUMPUM WAS A GOOD MOVIE (JUST AVERAGE).JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM ONLY HAD AWESOME SONGS.SALAAM-E-ISHQ WAS AVERAGE MOVIE(WITH COOL SONGS)..
ta ra rum pum was a good movie an it wasn't a flop! saawariya was really boring but tha wasn't a flop either becuase it's still running in canadian cinema's even after 2 week's of releasing. that doesnt happen in Candian cinemas unless the movies really good! ( i still think Saawariya wss boring though)
i agree....saawariya is more like saaboriya!
i expected soo much more from SLB after Black and his other phenominal work of arts......lolss.....but then again om shanti om was the competition so i guess its all gud.....honestly i truly agree wit the RGV ki Aag, nothing can beat the orignal Sholay......hopefully there will be better stories fr 2008
