    There have been several occasions when i have wondered why a particular film became a huge hit/ was termed flop... while i thought otherwise. And i m sure many of you have had such experiences.

    Hence this thread !!

    Film that should have been a hit: Lamhe..... was far ahead of its times.

    Film that should have been a flop: Hum Apke hai kaun... i still wonder what did people like about this family wedding video...

    ur right.. !! "jaane bhi do yaaron "

    And right again.. "mr. bhansli" .. his movies are weird.. from "hum dil de chuke sanam" to "black" (he definately made that movie for oscar :p )..

    Zinda Should be a hit (if they don't actually do much of BP with the real book and film "oldboy")
    and all the NUMBER ONE movies.. should be banned

    like "hero number 1, aunty number 1, khiladi number 1 , FLOP NUMBER 1" ..

    and those who not really agree with me here.. i can give them two ticckets to " minister" Balcony ki tickets.. !!

    in tht Amir Khan carries a transistor in his pocket while going to bat...and when he gets stuck by the ball and falls down the transistor gets switched on and heroine's voice comes out as "I love u....I love u".....healed by the heroine's voice he gets up again and smaches 4 sixes in a row

    Perhaps that it was almost the first of its kind in an era of stereotypical violence and machoistic courtship?

    It also helped that it was not preceded by a number of replicas each of which was a flop.
