Where the small banners and small stars sometimes create magic at the box-office, big budgeted, big-banner and big stars often fail to rake moolah at the counter. Be it weak story plot, bad acting, or pure bad luck, when a big budget movie flops it surprises all. With 2011 drawing to an end, let us have a look at 5 most anticipated movies of 2011 which bombed at the box office:
An ambitious love story by Pankaj Kapoor, Mausam can be touted as the biggest flop of 2011 till now. Released on 16 September 2011, Mausam featured an impressive cast of Shahid Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Supriya Pathak, and Aditi Sharma. Though the romance depicted in the flick was impressive, the film bombed because of its boring length, repetition of scenes and weak plot.

This thriller and Black comedy released on 18 February 2011, was an ambitious project for Priyanka Chopra. This big budgeted movie directed by ace director Vishal Bhardwaj had a strong storyline and impressive cast comprising of John Abraham, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Naseeruddin Shah, Irrfan Khan, Anu Kapoor, and Vivaan Shah along with Priyanka Chopra, of course. However, the movie failed to make it big.
Again a February release, this family drama was made under the direction of Nikhil Advani and starred Akshay Kumar and Anushka Sharma. The plot was not a new one with the son Akshay Kumar wanting to make a career in cricket but his father does not want that his son play for England. This was a big budget movie with impressive performances from the actors and yet it failed to impress in the audience in general.
The highlight of the film was its cast comprising of Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone. This film, based on political and social issues, was directed by Prakash Jha and was released on12 August 2011. The movie was based on the burning issue of reservation for SC/ST.
With the strong cast of Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Rampal and Kangna Ranaut, this comedy made under the banner of Sanjay Dutt Productions surprised everyone when it failed at the box office. Directed by the master of comic genre, David Dhawan, the film had a massive budget and seemed impressive when the promos were released. However, it was a major flop of 2011.
