Bollywood films are a big gamble, you never know when a movie is hit or flop. It's like this big question mark, that no one knows the answer too. For example Bobby Jasoos, the movie received good reviews from critics and people, it has Vidya Balan in the lead, some amazing songs, yet it failed to make some good moolah at the Box Office. Why?

performance at the Box Office.

While the original failed, the remake made good moolah.
The remake was released in 2012 with Sanjay Dutt reprising
Danny's role, the movie matched up to it's name and did extremely
well at the BO. No other actor could have steeped in to the shoes
of Amitabh Bachchan apart from Hrithik. He truly did justice to the
role, but unlike Agneepath which was remade, there have
been several good movies that just lost it's way. Let's check out
