Although 2022 has witnessed some of the mind-blowing blockbuster films at the box office like KGF 2, RRR, and Vikram, there have not been any films that have performed equally well. All the blockbuster hits are from the south film industry. There has not been even one single hit from the Bollywood industry this year. So we can say that the South film industry has performed much better this year when compared with other film industries in the country.
No matter how big the star is and how big the production house is, some films have not received minimum collections at the box office at the end of the day. The miserable failure of these films might be due to the lack of the proper storyline and their failure to engage the audience with the film. In this article, we are going to list seven movies in 2022 that came with high expectations but failed miserably at the box office.
7 Movies In 2022, That Came With Expectations But Failed Miserably
Laal Singh Chaddha
We all know how big a star Aamir Khan is. Aamir Khan has given some of the biggest blockbusters at the box office in recent years with Dhoom3, Dangal, etc. But Lal Singh Chaddha is one such film that has received a majority of negative talk among the audience. Even before the movie was released there were protests to Boycott Lal Singh Chadha by people in many states. However, the film was successfully released in the theaters. But it received negative talk and the movie was removed from 40% of the theaters on the second day itself.
It is not because of the boycott Lal Singh Chaddha protest. But this miserable failure might be due to an improper storyline proving that even perfectionists and superstars like Amir Khan can also go wrong sometimes in picking up stories.
The film Acharya created a lot of buzz and expectations among the audience as it stars Megastar Chiranjeevi and his son Ram Charan under the direction of Koratala Siva. But if we keep this aside whether the movie is a blockbuster hit or an utter flop, the movie has not received even proper openings on the first day itself.
Although the movies starred big stars like Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan after his blockbuster hit RRR, the film has failed to gain attention through its trailers and promos. The storyline of the film is based on the life of Naxalites and it did not go successful in capturing the audience’s attention. This is the main cause of the movie’s failure at the box office and everyone is hoping to see the duo acting in a much more powerful and better script in the future.
The movie Radhe Shyam is purely based on a love story that starred Prabhas and Pooja Hegde in the lead roles. The movie was made with a high budget but the storyline of the film is half-baked leaving the audience disappointed. There were high expectations among the audience and fans after seeing the trailer and promo, but the film left everyone disappointed with the storyline.
