    Unhappy Bollywood's mid-year report card: Films that failed to impress

    With six months gone by, Bollywood churned out quite a few films but while many received appreciation, there is also a lot that received a thumbs-down from the fans and critics. We bring to you 10 films that did not live up to the expectations.



    Sajid Khan's much-anticipated film 'Himmatwala' turned out to be the biggest debacle of the first quarter of the year. With an overdose of melodrama, bad humour and garish songs, the film makes it to the top of our list.

    When you have actors like Bipasha Basu and Nawazuddin Siddiqui as the star cast, expectations are bound to rise. And, if the film is a horror thriller, then all the more. But, even these two actors could not help 'Aatma' survive as the film lacks any drama and horror. With tried and tested formulas yet again put into use, 'Aatma' did not offer anything new.

    With a successful franchise at his hands, director Vishesh Bhatt could not do justice to 'Murder 3'. Apart from some disappointing performances, even the script could not help the film survive. With no murder happening in the film, the film disappoints.

    Sudhir Mishra's 'Inkaar' takes on the bold subject of sexual harassment at workplace. But, the difference only is that the director claims it to be the subject, however, the film does not deal with it at all making the plot all the more sloppy.

    Preity Zinta's return wagon to Bollywood 'Iskhq In Paris' also could not do much wonder for the actress. With a usual filmy love affair story brewing in Paris and not Mumbai, the film disappoints you at every point.

    Kapil Sharma's coming of age story of a 35-year-old man is quite interesting as the subject but the director is unable to keep the audiences hooked on. With average performances by the star cast and not so gripping screenplay, 'I, Me Aur Main' fails to leave an impression.

    After Ayushmann Khurrana's 'Vicky Donor', hopes were high from Rohan Sippy's 'Nautanki Saala'. But the film did not fare well. Apart from the slow pace, the loose script also mars the narrative making it a dull film.

    The Deols returned to silver screen yet again with 'Yamla Pagla Deewana 2', but unlike the first film, 'YPD2' did not do any wonders. And, how can it? With a orangutan riding a bike making for comedy scenes, the film disappoints at every level.

    Anand Kumar's action-thriller 'Zila Ghaziabad' tries too hard to be 'Dabangg'. However, with a weak story line, the is nothing more than some over the top action scenes.
