Bollywood releases hundreds of films every year out of which only a handful of them turnout super successful and the rest get pretty low response. The Indian audience has become sensible and picky when it comes to movies. It doesn’t matter if the actor is Khan or Kapoor, the success of the film now depends mainly on story followed by acting. Indian audience is looking for movies with new concepts and not just another love story. Read on to know more about most hyped bollywood movies of 2018 and how they fared at
1. Namaste England
Sequel of the 2007 hit movie Namaste London, Namaste England failed terribly to attract the audience. The lead actors Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor seem to have been running through a bad phase in their lives. They are attracting one bad script after another. People had much expectations from this movie based on the prequel Namaste London.
2. Thugs of Hindostan
This film had everything, from handsome budget to fancy sets, the Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan, the beautiful Fatima Sana Shaikh and even Katrina Kaif with her unbelievable dance moves. Now what this film lacked was a decent story! And as mentioned earlier, it doesn’t matter if the actor is Khan or Kapoor (or even a Bachchan), the Indian audience need a proper movie with an interesting script to watch during their weekend.
3. Dhadak and Kedarnath
While Dhadak star Jhanvi Kapoor is the daughter of the legendary superstar Sri Devi, Ishaan Khatter is step-brother of another superstar Shahid Kapoor. Kedarnath’s leading actress Sara Ali Khan is the daughter of actor Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh. These three actors were debutants in the Bollywood industry.
Dhadak was a remake of 2016 mega-hit Marathi movie, Sairat. Although Sairat turned out to be an epic movie, Dhadak got a lukewarm response from the audience. It wasn’t a hit nor was a total flop. Jhanvi and Ishaan received applaud for their debut performances.
Kedarnath was like a dream project to Sara Ali Khan. It was her debut movie where she performed like a pro. Acting is something that seemed to have come natural to Sara. Other best things about the movie were destination and songs. But again the movie script sucked! Even Kedarnath received lukewarm response.
Based on the events leading to the 1971 Indo-Pakistan war, the story is commemorated to the unsung heroes of the Indian elite spy agencies that remain behind the scenes and provide tremendous assistance in various ways. The audience liked the movie because of the optimum script and fabulous acting by actors Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal. Raazi turned out to be a proper hit.
Sanju was a biopic made on the actor Sanjay Dutt’s life. The role of Sanjay Dutt was played by one of the brightest stars of Bollywood, Ranbir Kapoor. The movie had all that needs to make it a blockbuster. A proper script, optimum acting, well developed set and an amazing director. Sanju is one of the 2018s most successful movies.
The movie Stree had a comical approach to the classic horror movie. The mix of horror and comedy was so appropriate, the movie entered the hit club of 2018 movies. Rajkummar Rao has again proved his epic acting talent, now in a comical way.
7. Andhadhun and Badhaai Ho
Both Andhadhun and Badhaai Ho are considered surprise hits of the year. Both had amazing scripts and new concepts that entertained audience thoroughly. These two movies also had Ayushman Khuranna as a leading actor.
