Salman Khan, currently the most financially successful celebrity in the industry, began his career with Maine Pyaar Kiya, one of his most successful films. Salman received a movie like Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, one of the biggest box office successes in Indian cinema history, thanks partly to Barjatya. Baaghi, Saajan, Karan Arjun, Jeet, Judwaa, Biwi No 1, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, and Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya are a few of his other classics from the 1990s.
Salman’s career started to tank after the 1999 film Hum Saath Saath Hain. Khan only had two hits in the following five years (2000-2004): Baghban and Mujhe Shaadi Karogi. Garv and Tere Naam had a respectable company.
Salman’s career had its most significant turning point when Prabhu Deva’s Wanted (2009) brought back single-screen moviegoers to theaters. Salman started to take his profession more seriously after the success of Wanted, ceased acting in movies as favors for some of his colleagues, and started signing pictures that catered to single-screen and multiplex audiences.
Audiences remind him that they also require a material with fun and attractive components, even if he felt confident in his films. Poorly received films included Tubelight, Race 3, Radhe: The Most Wanted Bhai, and others.
Flop Movies of Salman Khan
Radhe (2021) failed at the box office due to fewer theaters during COVID-19 and was also rejected on the OTT platforms Zee Plex and ZEE5, with an IMDb rating of 1.8 out of 10. The director Prabhu Deva, who gave Salman Khan his first solo blockbuster, Wanted (2009), teamed up with Salman Khan again after a decade, but this time it went wrong.
The action scenes don’t feel authentic. They are more suited to enhance Salman’s mythic persona. Due to the fast-paced battle, the character loses all realism, relatability, depth, and feeling. There are more CGI issues in the pivotal sequence where Rana and Radhe square off.
Radhe frequently veers away from the primary plot. Even when the police are after Rana and his crew, Radhe still finds time to flirt, dance, and tell inappropriate jokes. These diversions do not help the movie, which should have stayed on topic for most of the time, given the delicate nature of its subject.
Salman Khan was criticized for taking Saif Ali Khan’s place in Remo D’souza’s stylish con-action thriller, which has an IMDb rating of 1.9 out of 10. While we can’t call this big-budget film a box office failure, critics have given it dismal reviews everywhere, social media has been overrun with memes, and Salman Khan has received criticism for doing so.
On Eid, Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez’s Race 3 opened big at the box office, grossing more than Rs 100 crore in its first weekend. However, as soon as word of mouth began to spread, Race 3’s collections suffered from unfavorable reviews. Compared to other Salman Khan movies, the movie underperformed over the weekdays. Around Rs 170 crore have been made at the ticket counters so far.
Many people had high hopes for the legendary Salman Khan-Kabir Khan acting-directing team, but they fell short this time and haven’t worked together on a film since. At that time, the movie also developed into a meme; IMDb gave it a score of 3.8 out of 10.
Salman Khan’s Tubelight has been panned by reviewers in every way, upsetting the atmosphere of the entire “Salman Khan movie” franchise. The hype that surrounds Salman Khan movies is absent here. The neutrals who went and didn’t appear to enjoy the film at all are feeling disappointed.
Salman Khan’s Tubelight missed the excitement and thrilling sequences that his followers often seek out. This time, Salman Khan is entirely mistaken. Salman Khan makes several valiant attempts, but Tubelight cannot drain the viewer emotionally. One of the leading causes of Salman Khan’s Tubelight’s box office failure is the lack of cutting-edge action sequences.
American director Willard Carroll failed to provide Bhai, his audience, at a time when Salman Khan needed a hit to compete. Marigold’s 4.8/10 IMDb rating is still higher than that for Radhe and Race 3. The movie blends several different genres and has a plot and screenplay that are as elusive as a glob of mercury.
An unruly, unpleasant, and conceited movie star Marigold Lexton travels to Mumbai to film Kama Sutra 3 in Goa. After a few mishaps, Marigold eventually makes it to India, only to find that production on her movie has ended and the sleazy criminals behind it are safely incarcerated.
The Bollywood soap opera Marigold is dull, plodding, and poorly timed. It has bland characterizations, poorly explained story aspects, and periodic listless tunes.
MAIN AUR MRS. KHANNA
Prem Ra wrote the script and directed the 2009 film Main Aur Mrs. Khanna. The IMDb rating for this movie is 3.6 out of 10. In the critical roles with Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Preity Zinta couldn’t salvage it.
The movie’s box office results were appalling. It didn’t start out well, and the bad reviews it received from everyone else didn’t help matters either.
The narrative of this multi-starrer movie, however, focused on six couples who were having relationship problems. It is not measurable in hits. In Salaam-E-Ishq, six diverse groups of people from various cultures and professions tell their stories. Unaware of one another’s existence but who are ultimately drawn together by fate, love, and destiny.
The narrative of a singer is told in the 2009 film London Dreams, which features Ajay Devgan, Salman Khan, Aditya Roy Kapoor, and Om Puri. This film joined the long list of box office duds.
Salman sang in Yuvvraaj, but it didn’t seem to work like magic. In this Subhash Ghai-directed film from 2008, stunning Katrina Kaif, Anil Kapoor, Boman Irani, and Zayed Khan starred. Similar to Veer, Yuvvraaj had everybody fired up and thrilled. Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif played critical roles in the movie. Before and after this movie, Salman has always found success with this formula.
Having produced one box office hit after another for 7-8 films in a row, Katrina Kaif was also on a bit of a run. Overall, it had more star power than anyone could have imagined for 2008! Sadly, that did not convince many to look past the initial impressions of those who had seen the movie.
