Chhapaak is a sensitive movie that narrates the story of a 19 years old girl who turns to be a victim of a horrific acid attack. Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak is based on a real-life story of an acid attack survivor, Laxmi Agarwal who later went on to become an example of women on strength and inspiration. Deepika Padukone has portrayed the lead role as Malti who was attacked in broad daylight on the streets of Delhi by a family friend. Despite Chhapaak having a good script, it couldn’t make it big at the box office. Firstly, Chhapaak is a non-commercial movie that doesn’t possess the content that rules the box office as the audience tagged it as depressing. Secondly, the real-life story couldn’t clash with the frictional Tanhaji and didn’t shine at the theatres. The movie production spent 45 crore and the movie made 55.44 crore at the box office.
Aditya Roy Kapur starrer Malang has a lot of twists and turns that is really a high dosage for the audience to take up in just one go. The movie begins with the hero going on a killing spree and then comes the flashback that narrates the love story of Aditya and Disha Patani, back in the present day he continues killing cops. The constant switching of past and present has made it hard for the audience to follow the storyline. In this Mohit Suri’s directorial, Anil Kapoor plays a happy cop, Anjaney Agashe who tries to wrap up the case. The movie fetched 84.50 crore at the box office.
