There were four significant Bollywood films which were released today in the past years – Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai starrer Hamara Dil Aapke Pass Hai, Tiger Shroff starrer A Flying Jatt, Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Babumoshai Bandookbaaz and Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline starrer A gentleman. Let us check how these films fared at the box office.
Hamara Dil Aapke Pass Hai (2000)
Directed by Satish Kaushik, Hamara Dil Aapke Pass Hai was his fourth collaboration with Anil Kapoor after Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja, Hum Aapke Dil Mein Rehte Hain and Badhaai Ho Badhaai. A remake of the Telugu film Pellichesukundam, Hamara Dil Aapke Pass Hai was released with much fan fare and was turned gold for both Satish Kaushik and Anil Kapoor after their blockbuster Hum Aapke Dil Mein Rehte Hain, collecting Rs 15 crore 9approx) against a budget of Rs 9 crore.
A Flying Jatt (2016)
After delivering solid hits like FALTU, ABCD and ABCD 2, much was expected from director Remo and Tiger Shroff, who was currently going through solid phase with hits like Heropanti and Baaghi. However, both disappointed with A Flying Jatt, released in 2016. The screenplay was confusing while action sequences were funny which led to its poor performance at the box office, collecting Rs 31 crore against a budget of Rs 55 crore.
Babumoshai Bandookbaaz (2017)
Babumoshai Bandookbaaz was already part of the controversy even before the release of the film as Chitrangda Singh claimed harassment on the sets. Also, the Babumoshai Bandookbaaz was being compared to the cult classic, Gangs Of Wasseypur. Unfortunately, Babumoshai Bandookbaaz did not live up to its expectation but was able to collect Rs 10 crore (approx) against a budget of Rs 10 crore.
A Gentleman (2017)
Directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K, who has given us some experimental films like 99, Shor In The City and Go Goa Gone, the trailer of Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez starrer A Gentlemen, never put any curiosity for the audience to watch the film in theater. The opening of the film, released in 2017, was terrible. With a budget of around Rs 70 crores, the action drama could manage to earn a meager Rs 17 crores.
