#2017Recap: Highly anticipated films of 2017 that bombed at the box office

via Bollywood Hungama Like every year, 2017 was no exception – several films which were expected to be huge grossers and high on satisfaction failed miserably. Bollywood Hungama, in this special feature lists the films that bombed at the box office. (Note: Films are listed as per their release dates).1. OK Jaanu
The Tamil original OK Kanmani was loved for its modern and progressive take on relationships.

The way he narrates the idea is so unconvincing but you see the expression of happiness and excitement (Prahlad Kakar) on the face of the boss. You hope the boss is being sarcastic and he kicks him out of the office. But alas, you learn that the boss is actually tripping over Adi’s idea and offers him the job!2. KaabilKaabil has its moments and you do root for the man when he goes out to kill those who raped his deceased wife. But a particular sequen…
