This lovely flick is everything you want to know about!
Two love birds brimming with love and the consequences they face are extremely astonishing, due to caste differences. Dhadak which is a remake of the super hit Marathi flick Sairat, is definitely worth a watch. It marks the debut of Janhvi Kapoor, the daughter of the legendary actress the late Sridevi and everybody is all praise for this young actress! The movie also features Shahid Kapoor’s half brother Ishaan Khatter and his performance is being appreciated worldwide!
Dhadak hit the screens on Friday 20th July 2018. The movie released on 2791 screens out of which 2235 were in India and the rest overseas. It became the highest opening newcomer movie!

Directed by Shashank Khaitan, Dhadak noticed a significant rise on Saturday as its total collections climbed to Rs. 19.75 crores. The flick began its theatrical run with Rs. 8.71 crores and went on to earn Rs. 11.04 crores on Day 2.
Apart from the box office collection, Dhadak is receiving applause for its amazing picturization and the cast’s outstanding performance.
According to the well known trade analyst Girish Johar, Dhadak has its pros which seem to work in its favour. He said the movie will earn around Rs. 6.5 crores on its opening day. It might be a little too much for a movie with a newcomer in the lead but Dhadak has three to four factors working in its favour. One, it is the Sridevi sympathy factor, second, Janhvi is making a debut with the movie, third, the film is a remake of Sairat which is already a blockbuster and last, it is a Dharma Production project.
Here is what Taran Adarsh said about Dhadak!
#Dhadak witnesses SIGNIFICANT GROWTH on Day 2… Growth on Sat [vis-à-vis Fri]: 26.75%… Sun biz expected to be higher than Sat… Eyes ₹ 30 cr+ weekend, which is EXCELLENT for a film starring newcomers… Fri 8.71 cr, Sat 11.04 cr. Total: ₹ 19.75 cr. India biz.

Bollywood Movies Which Failed When They First Released
Some Bollywood movies become hits and some fail. However, there are some with brilliant scripts and characters which fail, despite having everything going the right way for them. There are movies which gained recognition long after they hit the screens. Here’s taking a look at the movies which should have been super hits, but failed to make the kind of impact they should have!
1. Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro
The failure of this film is a shocker even today. Despite having an impressive star cast (Boman Irani, Naseeruddin Shah, Puri, Ravi Baswani and Pankaj Kapur,) the film just failed to take off when it first released. A story about two photographers and their journey to success, Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro just did not get the credit it deserved. Why? Because people in the ’80s just didn’t get satire as a concept, especially when it came in the form of a film! However, after a couple of years, the movie started being noticed by the right audience and people finally started accepting the greatness it was! So much that it eventually became a cult phenomenon!
2. Andaz Apna Apna
Andaz Apna Apna, despite being such a loved and sought after movie today, just failed to make an impression when it released. Although Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Raveena Tandon and Karishma Kapoor gave brilliant performances, the movie just refused to stick. While the targeted audience refused to get the message of the film (friendship always comes over love) at that point, people today absolutely love it. Well, it probably takes a long time to appreciate the intensity of the film and the brilliance of the story.
3. Rocket Singh
Perhaps the first time Ranbir Kapoor played a Sikh, the failure of Rocket Singh was a massive surprise. With a storyline which was impressive to the very end, this movie showed the struggles and the underbelly of the marketing world to perfection. However, what people didn’t get perhaps was the understated way the movie told the story. While all the actors put out their finest performances, the movie just didn’t do the wonders it was expected to at the box office. However, a few years later, the film finally picked up a fan following, going so far as to winning Ranbir Kapoor an award at the Filmfare!
4. Pyar Ka Punchnama
Okay, the fact this particular film failed wasn’t an entire surprise. Albeit being filled with certain funny moments and interesting monologues, the movie just failed to stick with the larger audience. Made with six debutants, this film had a lot of hidden innuendos and snide comments against a particular gender. A reason, which perhaps acted as the film’s drawback. However, despite all the negative remarks, this film still managed to get quite a good following years after its release. In fact, people liked it so much, they went ahead and made a second part! Oh, well! Humour is subjective.
When news about Swades first started doing the rounds, people thought there was no doubt the movie was going to be a success. However, when it eventually released, it barely made a splash. Complete with a star like Shah Rukh Khan playing the lead and a story which was heartwarming to the very end, the reaction Swades received was lukewarm, at best. Telling the story of one man’s dreams of providing electricity to his village, the climax just failed to keep the audience hooked. Thankfully though, good sense prevailed and people finally accepted Swades for all the great things it has to offer, purely because of the content.
Another Ranbir Kapoor movie which just didn’t make the cut when it released, Rockstar flopping was quite a surprise. While both Nargis Fakhri and Ranbir Kapoor brought their A games to the table, the movie was just not liked by the audience. One of the reasons which could be attributed to the dislike is the fact, the ending was in no way conducive to the rest of the story. While it may not have done well or appreciated at the time of its release, Rockstar started gaining a cult following and today, it is quite a favourite movie!
There are movies which become instant successes when they release and then there are movies which take time to gain following. This is our list of movies which gained recognition after they hit the screens. What movies do you think should have become successes, but failed instead? Comment and let us know!
Amitabh Bachchan – Best Movies Of The Superstar From The Last 50 Years
Amitabh Bachchan, the superstar, the King of Bollywood, the ultimate Badshah of Bollywood, finishes 50 years in the industry today! While the baritone voice is a familiar presence in the Country now, the Angry Young Man of Bollywood had an inspiring journey. Here is taking a look at Amitabh Bachchan’s journey in the world of Bollywood in the last 5 decades!
Zanjeer set the world of Bollywood onto a new path. While Amitabh Bachchan was already coming into his own before this film, Zanjeer gave the actor a new direction. When Amitabh Bachchan was introduced to the world of Bollywood, people had a new face to look at and admire. With the movie being all things amazing and Amitabh Bachchan being hailed as the next big thing, everyone was looking forward to something exciting. As a first movie, Zanjeer was the best thing which could happen to the Angry Young Man.
From the moment Zanjeer became the super hit film that it was destined to be, Amitabh Bachchan’s success kept growing. With Silsila, his presence in the world of Bollywood was further cemented through his brilliant acting skills. His scintillating chemistry with Rekha quite literally set the rumour mill on fire, giving people a fresh new pair to look forward to everyday! A movie which wasn’t just about love, Silsila redefined the way people looked at and dealt with different circumstances. With the characters being so carefully handled, the movie just made everyone stand up and take notice of not just Amitabh Bachchan, but of Rekha as well!
A movie which needs no introduction, Sholay was an Amitabh Bachchan classic film. A classic, Sholay was one of the highest grossing films released at the time and ranked first in the British Film Institute’s 2002 poll of “Top 10 Indian Films” of all time. A story about two criminals (Jeet and Veeru, played by Dharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan,) who try to capture a criminal, Gabbar Singh, this movie more than earned its place in the hall of fame. While the film initially received negative reactions when it released, the reviews quickly picked up and people started falling in love with the characters and the attention to detail the film had. Sholay was a film like never before and was perhaps one of the best performances Amitabh gave so far!
The first and original Don, Amitabh Bachchan was a class act like no other actor. Playing a double role for the first time in his career, senior Bachchan ruled the roost with his acting skills in this movie! The third highest grossing movie when it released, this movie set the charts on fire because of how well Amitabh pulled his weight in both the roles in this movie. Classified as a golden jubilee hit by Box Office India, Don was an iconic movie in every sense of the word. The line, “Don ko pakadna mushkil hi nahi, namumkin hai,” is still popular even today!
This film had a lot of expectations riding on Amitabh Bachchan. The title for this movie was taken from a poem written by Harshvardhan Rai Bachchan (Amitabh’s father) and the film also had an extremely talented cast (Mithun Chakraborty, Madhavi, Neelam Kothari, Rohini Hattangadi and Danny Denzongpa.) The poem written by Amitabh’s father was recited at the beginning of the film and just like Amitabh’s character, the poem gives shape to the central crux of this film as well. With Big B playing the character so well, Agneepath went on to become a major cult movie in years to come!
Telling the story of Piku Banerjee (played by Deepika Padukone) and her father (Amitabh Bachchan,) Piku saw Amitabh Bachchan acing the character. From praising the characterisation, to loving the plot, critics and fans alike loved the movie so much, it became an instant hit the moment it released! While both Deepika Padukone and Irfan Khan added a certain impact to the movie, it was Amitabh Bachchan’s perfect portrayal of a cranky old man which added the much needed gravitas to Piku. Definitely one of Amitabh’s best performances in the recent past!
While Amitabh Bachchan was known for playing certain roles during the earlier part of his career, he grew to play different types of characters in the future years. From changing the way people saw him in cinema, to creating a positive image for himself, Amitabh Bachchan has quite literally carved a throne for himself in the world of Bollywood. Here’s looking forward to more amazing films from the Badshah of Bollywood in the coming 50 years!
Bollywood Movies Which Didn’t Have Clichéd Endings
Bollywood has always been the gold mine of happily ever afters and great endings. However, while most films deliver on the promise of a beautiful ending, there are some which build up to the possibility of a beautiful ending, but end up giving us something completely different. Here’s taking a look at movies which just ended in a different way than we thought.
1. The Lunch Box
A story about two people falling in love despite the unlikely circumstances, The Lunchbox has an ending which makes you rethink the idea of love itself. Two strangers fall in love through letters and when they finally decide to meet, destiny seems to have different plans. While the two hack a plan, things don’t work out the right way. However, even though the initial meeting doesn’t pan out the way it was supposed to, the open ending leaves one wondering whether the two strangers eventually meet or not. Leaving you with an uneasy feeling and wanting for more, The Lunch Box tells a story beyond the cliches and the expected norms!
One of the best movies to have been made in the recent past, Rockstar had an extremely surprising ending. A story about a rockstar fighting for his dreams and working on making his hopes come true, Rockstar depicted suffering in the most heart touching way. Despite having everything going the way it was supposed to for the main character, his journey toward the end of the film leaves one longing and wanting for more.
3. Kartik Calling Kartik
Kartik Calling Kartik had all the makings of a film leading toward a happy ending. Kartik (played by Farhan Akhtar,) falls in love with Sona (Deepika Padukone.) A series of phone calls help Kartik overcome his low confidence levels not just at work, but also help him get the love of his life. However, despite the calls helping in the beginning, they start becoming invasive and creepy toward the second half. When the calls start increasing in their intensity, Kartik starts getting worried and tries everything possible to stop the calls. More than halfway through the film, the movie switches tracks in a surprising manner. All the way through, Kartik Calling Kartik leaves you hooked to the very end of the movie!
With Kareena Kapoor and Imran Khan playing the main roles, most of this film builds up to a happily ever after between the two leads. While the leads get closer because of how they deal with their respective issues, the story leads to a point where one would think they would naturally end up together. However, in a surprise turn of events, Kareena Kapoor’s character tells Imran’s character that while there may be love of a certain kind, the two were definitely not going to end up together. Talk about a surprise ending!
Perhaps one of the few Bollywood movies with more twists to its name than any other made so far, Bluffmaster is a film within a film. It is only by the end of the film that the protagonist (played by Abhishek Bachchan,) realises he has been part of one of the biggest cons ever! Just as you start empathising with him for everything gone wrong, the climax just pulls the rug from beneath you with a major sweep of surprise! Definitely worth a watch for the anti cliches!
When movies end in a way they aren’t supposed to, they stay remembered for a longer time. If you think we missed out on any other movies with different endings, comment and let us know!
Gully Boy Review And First Day Box Office Collections
Cast: Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Vijay Raaz, Vijay Varma, Kalki Koechlin, Amruta Subhash and Sheeba Chaddha
Director: Zoya Akhtar
The film starts off with a depiction of how Murad (Ranveer Singh) lives. A house the size of a matchbox in a Mumbai chawl is his home. Accommodating a cast aside mother (played by Amruta Subhash,) a grandmother, an abusive father and a new stepmother not older than him, Murad dreams of rapping his way out of the drudgery. The only ray of hope in his life is Safeena (Alia Bhatt,) a live wire and quirky character who pushes Murad to achieve his dreams, no matter what. Kalki plays the role of a music scholar who has just returned from the United States. MC Sher (played by Siddhant Chaturvedi) takes Murad under his wing and shows him the tricks of the trade. As a specialist in music, Kalki’s character is instantly drawn to the oozing talents displayed by Murad.
Centering around Murad, Gully Boy tells the story of how a rapper tries to break free of the drudgery and poverty in which he grew up, through rap. While he struggles to make it to the coveted list of the top ten rappers, Murad’s family and friends help in making his dreams come true. Gully Boy tells the story of how an ordinary man becomes the extraordinary Murad through sheer determination and hard work. While rap is still considered extremely unconventional and is not an appreciated music form in India even now, this Zoya Akhtar directorial quite literally tells the story of a man’s journey from rags to riches. Siddhant Chaturvedi’s amazing acting skills as MC Sher have definitely put him on the map of actors for whom to look out .
While parts of Gully Boy may seem slightly familiar (Eminem’s 8 Miles comes to mind,) the overall directorial is nearly flawless. Zoya Akhtar has understood the strengths of all the leads perfectly and used them to her advantage. The dark side of Mumbai is not a side most people are comfortable accepting. However, with finesse and attention to detail, Akhtar manages to capture every alley and every nook without making it seem over the top and unreal.
The power packed performances by Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt are what make this movie so amazing. Based on the story of Mumbai rappers Divine and Naezy, Gully Boy tells an extremely real and hard hitting story. The presence of the original rappers in various scenes of the movie, along with lyrics written by them, adds a sense of gravitas and authenticity to the film. The rap battles are riveting and the script is written so well, there are almost no loopholes through the movie.
With no major drawbacks to this film, Gully Boy is an all out entertainer. One of the only things which doesn’t work for this is that there isn’t enough of Kalki’s character on screen. If there was, the fight for the different sides would have been a little more interesting. All in all, with Zoya Akhtar’s brilliant directorial skills and amazing performances by all the actors, Gully Boy is worth more than just a one time watch!
Gully Boy Review And First Day Box Office Collections
Ranveer Singh’s Best Box Office Hits
Just a day before Gully Boy, Ranveer Singh’s highly anticipated film, hits the screens, it only stands fit to take a look at his previous hits. While Alia Bhatt and the other cast have performed just as well, Ranveer Singh’s character so far seems to be stealing the show! Here’s taking a look at some of his best box office performers before the movie hits the screens tomorrow!
Padmaavat, initially titled Padmavati, was one of Ranveer Singh’s best performances to date. Playing the role of a king (Alauddin Khilji) obsessed with Rani Padmavati, Ranveer Singh goes above and beyond with his superb acting skills. It isn’t just us who thinks this. The box office records flat out prove this fact, with Padmaavat raking in a massive income to the tune of Rs. 302.15 crores!
Unlike Padmaavat, Simmba was an out and out entertainer. A Rohit Shetty directorial, this film saw Ranveer Singh shine bright like a diamond, in the role of a cop. Ranked among the top ten highest grossest opening films and also marking Rohit Shetty’s 8th time in the 100 crore club, Simmba was a Ranveer Singh film all the way through. Breaking more than one record at the box office, this film cemented Ranveer Singh in the field of the era of top ten actors! Simmba went on to earn a whopping Rs. 240.2 crores at the box office post its release!
3. Bajirao Mastani
With Sanjay Leela Bhansali directing this periodic drama and Ranveer Singh playing the role of the Maratha warrior Bajirao, one can’t but expect this film to be brilliant. A commercial and critical success in every way possible, it is now extremely hard to imagine anyone else playing the role of Bajirao the way Ranveer Singh did! Earning Rs. 184.2 crores at the box office, this was perhaps one of the most captivating performances given by Ranveer Singh.
4. Ladies Versus Ricky Bahl
An adaption of John Tucker Must Die, Ladies Versus Ricky Bahl sees the original Ranveer Singh come alive. Playing the ultimate con man gone good, Singh perform this role to perfection. Can’t imagine anyone else playing this role, right? Neither can we! While the film didn’t do extraordinarily well on the first day, Ladies Versus Ricky Bahl still earned more than expected with its collection of Rs. 80 crores.
5. Dil Dhadakne Do
A movie about an heir trying to figure out his way in life through all the money and drama, Dil Dhadakne Do sees Ranveer Singh in one of his most sober roles yet. Opening to a collection of Rs. 10.53 crores, the film went on to do really well at the box office with a final collection of Rs. 76.88 crores! Not bad at all.
6. Band Baaja Baaraat
Band Baaja Baaraat, Ranveer Singh’s foray into the world of Bollywood, saw the actor break all records right away. From the very moment he starts jumping, dancing and acting on the screen, there was absolutely no shadow of a doubt that Singh was a star in the making. Running a little shy of entering the coveted 100 crores club (by earning Rs. 96 crores,) this movie was a Ranveer Singh masterpiece all the way through!
With Gully Boy all set to release tomorrow, one can’t wait to see how the movie is going to turn out. If you think we missed out on some other successes by the superstar, comment and let us know!
