Multiple film releases in 2023 experienced a lackluster performance at the box office. However, the impact of these flops on the audience is not significant. Moviegoers often gauge a film’s potential success before heading to the theaters and if it does not live up to the hype, they get disappointed. In 2023, let’s explore the films that disappointed the audience and ended up as the worst movies.
Being a movie based on Rama’s story and Ramayana, the movie “Aadi Purush” was fixed not only by Prabhas fans but also by all movie lovers that this movie is a blockbuster in any situation. However, director Om Raut wiped those expectations from the beginning with the teaser. When the film released, the situation was worse and things went haywire
Sundeep Kishan expressed eagerness, likening his latest film to the caliber of KGF. The promotional content was well-edited, generating widespread interest. However, once the film was released, all expectations took a downturn. The sluggish pace of the screenplay, coupled with an excess of slow-motion shots, left the audience unimpressed. The redeeming aspect of the movie lies in its cinematography work.
Following the success of blockbusters like “Dhamaka” and “Waltheru Veeraiya,” Ravi Teja‘s latest film, “Ravanasura,” has hit the screens. Directed by Sudhir Varma, the movie has generated considerable anticipation. Drawing inspiration from a Bengali film, Ravi Teja’s portrayal of a negative character is a standout feature. However, the film falls short in terms of screenplay quality.
Initially, there was a collective expectation that this movie would mark a comeback for Samantha and Gunasekhar. However, within a week of its theatrical release, the film unexpectedly premiered on OTT platforms, revealing the extent of its failure. The movie lacks any discernible positive points except for its color grading.
Akhil‘s film “Agent” was unveiled as one of the noteworthy releases in the Rereery lineup, featuring Malayalam megastar Mammootty under the direction of Surender Reddy. Anticipation was high, with expectations that Akhil would establish himself as a mass hero. However, the film proved to be a colossal disappointment, primarily due to its aimless screenplay.
With Tamil director Venkat Prabhu at the helm, “Custody” carried high expectations. Despite the promising combination of Naga Chaitanya and Kriti Shetty, the film, released amid considerable anticipation, struggled at the box office due to a weakness in its content.
A major setback was Chiranjeevi‘s decision to take on the remake of “Vedalam” after the initial collaboration with Pawan Kalyan and SJ Surya fell through shortly after starting. Aside from the film turning out to be a disaster, the scenes featuring Chiranjeevi and Srimukhi were not well-received by the fans.
Anticipation was high for the film that marked the collaboration of Boyapati and Ram. Unfortunately, “Skandha” fell short at the box office, primarily attributed to the superfluous double role of Ram, a series of illogical fight scenes, and a screenplay lacking emotional depth.
Nitin‘s career witnessed its share of disappointments, but “Extra Ordinary Man” surpassed them all. Despite a somewhat fresh original storyline, the audience found it challenging to connect with the narrative and the humor, especially the character Kullu. Many attributed the lackluster response to the screenplay handled by Endi Maisamma.
Following the success of the sensational “Kartikeya 2,” there were high expectations for “Spy,” featuring Nikhil, especially considering the promising trailer. However, the film’s production design stood out as a noteworthy aspect. Apart from this, nothing worked in this film and it ended as a massive flop at the box office.
