There were four significant Bollywood films which were released today in the past years – Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger Zinda Hai, Akshay Kumar and Govinda starrer Bhagam Bhag, Shah Rukh Khan, Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff starrer Trimurti and Sunny Deol and Manisha Koirala starrer Champion. Let us check how the films fared at the box office.
Tiger Zinda Hai (2017)
Sequel to blockbuster, Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai was bigger and better content wise. Directed by Abbas Ali Zafar, Tiger Zinda Hai had Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif returning to their lovable spy-agent avatar which was appreciated by the audience. Adding spice to the film was the chart busrting music and it turned out to be “Blockbuster” at the box office.
Bhagam Bhag (2007)
Priyadarshan was back which is best at – COMEDY. With ensemble cast of Akshay Kumar, Govinda , Paresh Rawal and Lara Dutta, Bhagam Bhag was a fun-rise which you would definitely enjoy. The film was loved the audience and it turned out to be “HIT” at the box office.
Much was expected from the Sunny Deol action film Champion which also introduced Rahul Dev as a potent nemesis who wanted to avenge the murder of his parents by killing the last heir to a rich family. The movie did opened well and had a strong screenplay with wonderful performances by Sunny Deol and Rahul Dev. Unfortunately, it could not work at the box office and turned out to be ‘Flop”.
Trimurti had everything going in its favor – Renowned director – Subhash Ghai, strong starcast and high production value. What it lacked was a solid script which made the movie, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff starrer, fail at the box office.
