There were three significant Bollywood films which were released today in the past years – Bhoothnath Returns, Ziddi And Hero- Love Story Of A Spy were released. Let us check how the films fared at the box office.
1997 was the year that belonged to macho-man of Bollywood, Sunny Deol. With two smashing hits – Ziddi and Border, Sunny Deol ruled the box office. Talking about former, Ziddi turned out to be even better than expected. Directed by Guddu Dhanoa, Ziddi had a fantastic storyline, well-received storyline, nice performances and solid action scenes, which helped the movie collect Rs 18.38 crore against a budget of Rs 7.50 crore.
The Hero – The Love Story Of A Spy (2003)
Much was expected from the dynamic duo – Anil Sharma and Sunny Deol, who re-wrote the history with Gadar-Ek Prem Katha. Unfortunately, The Hero – The Love Story Of A Spy could not meet the same expectations as the film faltered at the box office, minting just Rs 26.22 crore against a budget of Rs 35 crore.
Bhoothnaath Returns (2014)
Co-director of Chillar Party, Nitesh Tiwari chooses the right subject and theme with a noble message. As the continuation from the first part Bhoothnath (2008), Bhoothnath Returns begins with few hilarious scenes and follows the theme of election with right intention. The second half loses the steam and inclusion of songs hinders the momentum of the film. Fortunately, the film picks up the pace and climax ends with aplomb. The film belongs to three basic characters -Bhoothnath played brilliantly by the legend Amitabh Bachchan, Akhrot played superbly by Parth Bhalerao and Bhau essayed by supremely talented Boman Irani. Bhoothnath worked on three merits – terrific performance, right intention and fantastic direction, collecting Rs 39.15 crore against a budget of Rs 32 crore.
