In the realm of cinema, box office collections are often seen as a measure of success. However, surpassing the coveted Rs 100 crore mark does not always guarantee a movie's overall success. There have been instances where Hindi movies managed to achieve this milestone but ultimately failed to make a lasting impact. 

Let's delve into a list of eight such movies that crossed Rs 100 crore but turned out to be massive failures.

1. Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan

Salman Khan, known for his blockbuster films, faced disappointment with his last release, "Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan." Despite earning Rs 120 crore globally, according to Indian Express, the movie, a remake of the Tamil film "Veeram," failed to meet audience expectations. Fans are now eagerly awaiting his upcoming film, "Tiger 3," set to release on November 10, 2023.

2. Laal Singh Chaddha

Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, reuniting after the success of "3 Idiots," starred in the Hindi remake of "Forrest Gump" titled "Laal Singh Chaddha." Unfortunately, the film couldn't recreate the same magic at the box office, earning only Rs 108.47 crore worldwide, as reported by Indian Express. The movie also marked the Bollywood debut of Telugu star Naga Chaitanya.

3. Vikram Vedha

"Vikram Vedha," directed by Pushkar-Gayathri and made on a budget of Rs 175 crore, had high expectations. However, the Hindi version, similar to "Laal Singh Chaddha," struggled to perform well domestically. Nevertheless, the film did cross the Rs 100 crore mark, as mentioned in Hindustan Times. The Hindi remake, released in 2022, featured Saif Ali Khan and Hrithik Roshan in significant roles.

4. 83

Ranveer Singh's highly anticipated project "83," featuring Deepika Padukone, Pankaj Tripathi, Tahir Raj Bhasin, and others, failed to attract audiences due to the pandemic. Despite being made on a budget of Rs 260 crore, the sports drama only collected Rs 103 crore at the box office, as reported by the Times of India.

5. Tubelight

Salman Khan's films usually perform exceptionally well at the box office, but "Tubelight" was an exception. Directed by Kabir Khan and made on a budget of Rs 135 crore, the film collected only Rs 114 crore. Salman Khan personally compensated the distributors for their losses, as reported by Firstpost.

6. Radhe Shyam

Prabhas, renowned for his role in the "Baahubali" franchise, ventured into a different on-screen avatar with "Radhe Shyam." However, the movie, also featuring Pooja Hegde, did not meet expectations. According to ZoomTV, it earned only Rs 140 crore across all languages.

7. Zero

Despite the star power of Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Anushka Sharma, Aanand L Rai's film "Zero" turned out to be a major disappointment. Made on a budget of Rs 270 crore, the movie only managed to collect Rs 178 crore worldwide, according to a report by TOI.

8. Thugs Of Hindostan

"Thugs of Hindostan," featuring Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif, and Fatima Sana Shaikh, had high expectations but received negative reviews. With a budget of Rs 300 crore, the 2018 period drama ended its theatrical run with a total collection of Rs 138 crore, as reported by the Times of India.

These movies serve as examples that crossing the Rs 100 crore mark does not guarantee a film's success, as factors like audience reception, content, and critical acclaim also play significant roles in determining a movie's overall impact.
