Akshay Kumar had a difficult time at the box office in recent months. Being an action hero and making three to four movies yearly, he is Bollywood’s equivalent of Khiladi Kumar. He is currently acknowledged as one of Bollywood’s busiest performers, releasing a film every third or fourth month. He has both hits and misses in all of his most recent films. According to the list, these are the most recent flop movies of Akshay Kumar.
Akshay Kumar, Kriti Sanon, Arshad Warsi, and Jacqueline Fernandez play significant roles in Bachchan Pandey’s action-drama. To flourish in the film industry, filmmaker Myra decides to develop a movie on the gangster Bacchchhan Pandey. The action comedy movie is a remake of Jigarthanda, a 2014 Tamil film influenced by A Dirty Carnival, a 2006 Korean film.
At the box office, Bachchhan Pandey had a poor performance. 180 crores were spent on production, while the makers only made about 73.11 crores. Farhad Samji is the film’s director, while Sajid Nadiadwala is its producer. Jigarthanda, a popular Tamil film, was remade as Bachchan Pandey under the direction of Karthik Subbaraj.
The historical drama Samrat Prithviraj is based on the life of Prithviraj Chauhan, the 12th ruler. Muhammad of Ghor, the monarch who fought the Mughals, was the leading role played by Akshay. Even though Samrat Prithviraj was based on an accurate tale, it hardly garnered any attention at the box office. The movie, released on June 3, 2022, was not as successful as anticipated. The historical action drama’s production cost was over 300 crores. However, it only made 90.32 crores.
In addition to Akshay Kumar, Manushi Chhillar, Sonu Sood, and Ashutosh Rana appear in the movie. Manushi Chillar played the character of Sanyogita in her first film. Chandraprakash Dwivedi was written and directed by Aditya Chopra under Yash Raj Films.
The Akshay Kumar-starring film “Raksha Bandhan” has not received a strong audience reception since its premiere. Bhumi Pednekar, Sadia Khateeb, Seema Pahwa, Deepika Khanna, Smriti Srikanth, and Sahejmeen Kaur are also featured in the film.
The lackluster performance of Raksha Bandhan during the long holiday weekend was certainly a sign of its demise, but the sharp fall in its weekday box office take has only served to confirm it. According to Bollywood Hungama, the Raksha Bandhan release of the Aanand L Rai film only managed to rake in Rs 1.25 crore on its seventh day.
Even worse than the Rs 1.58 crore earned on day 6 are the box office results on day 7.
The collection for Akshay’s movie was about Rs 8.20 crore on the holiday when it was launched, and as of right now, it shows a fall of 85%.
The film, which was supposed to be chopped because of its title on the festival of Rakshabandhan, was least spoken about on its release date while the whole Raksha Bandhan crew went all out to be seen by viewers.
Ironically, the movie’s creators could not market it for what it was. Given that he has collaborated with Bollywood’s finest actors, including Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar, his films, Zero and Raksha Bandhan were commercial failures.
Bell Bottom, a spy thriller starring actor Akshay Kumar, opened in theaters on August 19 and has been earning positive reviews since. The first significant Hindi film to visit theaters following the Covid-19 breakthrough stars a brilliant cast that includes Adil Hussain, Lara Dutta, Denzil Smith, Huma Qureshi, and Vaani Kapoor. Ranjit M. Tewari directs the film. While the Akshay-starrer premiered in several places with coronavirus limitations, three gulf countries have outlawed the movie’s screening.
Due to suspected alteration of historical facts, the film certification authorities in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Qatar have rejected Bell Bottom for screening in their respective nations. The covert Indian activities against airline hijacking in the early 1980s are the basis for the film.
On the other hand, Bell Bottom shows Akshay’s persona taking the initiative in the operation while keeping the UAE Defense Minister in the dark about the entire ordeal.
The insider said, “There’s a good chance that the Censor Board in the Middle Eastern countries must have taken exception to it and banned it. Bell Bottom’s creators are being praised for releasing the movie despite theaters only being half full due to the epidemic. The biggest movie market in the nation, Maharashtra, is yet to restart exhibition services, which has increased the danger for the filmmakers. Due to fewer people attending the theaters, the film only made a pitiful Rs 2.75 crore on Friday and Rs 2.40 crore on Saturday.
After being released on the OTT platform, Atrangi Re’s box office earnings are enormous. The pricey Disney Plus Hotstar bought the digital rights to the Atrangi Re movie, and if we’re talking about the film’s producer Atrangi Re, then Bhushan Kumar produced this one. The Atrangi Re movie is still a superb collection.
For a few chuckles, the screenplay’s clichés about Bihar and South Indians become even more apparent without any discernible internal logic. Similarly, its portrayal of mental illness is, to put it mildly, distressing. We recognize that there are still many barriers to love in the countryside, but it is difficult to believe that a wealthy family wouldn’t want to find out who the man is that their daughter is so anxious to go with.
Although it is still difficult to understand, mental illness has been employed only as a story device for convenience’s sake. It appears that the protagonist’s companion has been informed that he is a psychiatrist first and a sidekick second!
Dil Ki Baazi
The 1993 film Dil Ki Baazi tells the tale of two stepbrothers who are bitter toward one another and want retribution. This movie barely made 0.6 crores at the box office, making it a financial catastrophe. Additionally, this film drew a lot of scathing criticism from spectators.
Khiladi Kumar starred in the 1994 film Sainik. In this film, Akshay played an Army officer. Although Akshay Kumar’s performance in this film was well-received, its weak premise made it one of the worst disappointments of the year.
Ikke Pe Ikka
Ikke Pe Ikka, the weakest of Akshay’s twelve 1994 films, was one of the year’s most notable releases. Even though Akshay Kumar gave it everything he had, the movie barely had a two-week run in theaters.
These failures did not destroy Akshay’s optimism or courage. He is still active and has several films in development. Akshay Kumar is preparing for the release of Aanand L. Rai’s “Raksha Bandhan” on the professional front. He has the upcoming films “Oh My God 2 (OMG 2)” by Amit Rai, “Ram Setu” by Abhishek Sharma, “Selfiee” by Raj Mehta, and “Untitled Next” by Ranjit Tewari. For several of these, the Sooryavanshi actor has already wrapped up filming. And if rumors are to be believed, he is now signing Dinesh Vijan’s upcoming project.
