Now a days, it looks like the sequels of many hit Bollywood films are failing to impress the audience. There is a list of forgettable sequels in 2016. Starting with Kya Kool Hai Hum 3 to Rock On 2 didn’t go well and now Kahaani 2 is the latest addition to this list. However, Vidya Balan and Arjun Rampal starred Kahaani 2 is some how different with the other listed movies as critics are praising the acting skills of both the actors.
One of the major reason of the flops of these sequels may be the thinking of filmmakers. Somewhere they think that if a film earned well and hit the silver screen once then why not again!
But it is not so as it is proved by the reports of box office.
Currently, there are most sequels that were unable to get that much success as of the original. Let us take a look on such movies-
Jai Gangaajal that starred Priyanka Chopra didn’t work well as the original one due to lack of depth of the original film and considered as superficial.
Ghayal- Once again
Ghayal, released in the year 1990, was one of the highest grossing and a runaway hit of that time but unfortunately after 26 years, its remake Ghayal- Once again failed to recreate that magic Once again.
Rock On 2
The heights of success achieved by Rock On was not recreated in its sequel Rock On 2. The remake of Rock On starred Shraddha Kapoor and Farhan Akhtar and the team was unable to recreate that magic in the songs and film as earlier.
