5 commercially flop Hindi films that won over the critics with rich content!

Even for veterans, Bollywood is an unpredictable industry. The movie’s success cannot be predicted unless it truly captures the hearts of the audience and dominates the box office. There are some extreme flops that, like the massive hits, deserve more attention than they get! There are good movies, and then there are even better movies. Even better ones are sometimes swept under the rug or stacked below a glut of average and overhyped Hindi films that hit theatres every year.

Here is a list of a few such films, all of which were masterpieces in their own right but received poor reviews. In our society, there are films that have generally good content but go unnoticed and thus do poorly at box office records.
