2018 has been a strange year for Bollywood. Strange but certainly a good one for the audience and critics, alike! This was probably the first year in the history of Bollywood when the so-called bigwigs tanked at the Box Office and the underdogs laughed all the way to the bank.

Which makes us all arrive at the same question – Is the audience finally preferring good content over the age-old star system?

Let’s have a look at the bigwigs that crashed at the box office in 2018.

Thugs of Hindosthan

A colossal movie that saw Bollywood biggest superstars share the silver screen for the first time ever. What could possibly go wrong? Probably everything! After an impressive start, the audience showed the cold shoulder to the Yashraj production. The movie sank faster than the Titanic and couldn’t withstand competition from the Rs. 30 crore Ayushman starrer Badhai Ho!

Thugs of Hindosthan was a brilliant example of the changing scenario of the Hindi entertainment industry. The audience are done to death with masala potboilers that rely more on entertainment than content.

Race 3

Bhai’s movies have become more like a festival than a Friday release, since the past few years. From Dabangg to this last big release Tiger Zinda Hai, Bhai and his producers have laughed all the way to the bank. However, all good things come to an end and Bhai’s last two movies – Tubelight and Race 3 have met with a miserable fate at the Box Office.

A Bhai-movie flopping at the Box Office was unheard of which only goes to show that the audience is now rejecting movies with bad acting and scripts.

Badhai Ho Content Hua Hai… 

On the other hand, Ayushman Khuranna and his producers laughed all the way to the bank thanks to incredible performances and impeccable scripts just going to prove that ‘Content is King!’ Badhai Ho and Andhadhun made sure that good content is not overshadowed by big names incorporated just for the sake of it.

Ayushman’s counterpart from Bareily ki Barfi, Rajkumar Rao, too impressed the audience and critics alike with his horror comedy Stree. This was truly the year of the low-budget movies supported by strong content. Just like Stree; Raazi, Sonu ki Titu ki Sweety, Blackmail, Parmanu left the producers and distributors happy.

It is about time that content was given more important the mention of popular names just for the sake of it. We would love to hear your views about the same in the comment section below. Share your views right away!
