10 Flops On Big Screen That Were “Saved” By Television

It is quite a usual thing to hear about the hits and flops of movies. There are movies which we love to watch again and again and there are some movies that we don’t like due to any of the reasons. 

Sometimes there are movies which go into the flop list but when it comes to television we often love it. Here is a list of 10 flop movies that were a big hit when came on Television.


This is one of the movies which came recently and failed to make an impression at the box office. Although it was not such a success when it hit the screens but when it hit the television we couldn’t stop ourselves from appreciating it. The amazing character played by Ranbir as a frustrated musician was all that we loved a lot. 

 The movie perhaps showed Ranbir Kapoor’s best acting performance to date.


The only problem it had was that it was a three-hour-long movie. Apart from that, we could not find any other reason to declare it as a flop movie. In the movie both the actors, Hrithik and Preity gave their best performances. The movie has such a great storyline. The movie after coming to the television it got more fame which is now even considered as a cult classic of our time.

Pyar Ka Punchnama

The movie showcased great content but was unable to get success when it hit the screens because of the lack of star presence as it had all new faces.

But when hit the television the audience showered a lot of love to the movie and especially Rajjo’s 5-minute long continuous speech has a special level of fan-base to date.

Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein 

The movie had more popularity because of its songs. The movie although failed to attract the audience to the theatres and the movie was a flop. But Madhavan attracted a lot of female fans by this movie when it came on the television screens.

The movie has collected a lot of TRP on the TV. It has been played on the Television for around 800 times and has successfully gained the audience every time. 

Aamdani Atthani Kharcha Rupaiya

This is a remake of a successful Tamil movie which was not such a success when remade in Hindi as ‘Aamdani Atthani Kharcha Rupaiya’. This was one of the Hindi flops.

The movie had stars like Govinda-Juhi as the central roles which were expected to do well at the box-office but ended up being a big disappointment. However, when it came to the television it had such a huge rating. The movie then started playing on television a lot of times and was successful in keeping up the TRP.


Again a remake of super hit Tamil movie ‘Suryavansam’ which remade into ‘Sooryavansham’ which featured Amitabh Bachchan playing double roles.

Despite such a huge star movie, it failed to re-create the same magic which the south movie had. But when the movie hit the television screens, it created a huge success. 

Andaz Apna Apna 

This is now said to be one of the best comedy movies of the Indian cinema. The movie when it came into the theatres, was not appreciated by the audience due to any of the reasons but when it came into the satellite television, it was loved by the audience.

The Salman-Aamir duo was something we would still wish to watch again. 

The Burning Train

The movie was released way back in 1980 and was unsuccessful at the box office. But when it came into the television the audience appreciated the movie as the time when technology had not bloomed, the makers of the movie managed well to shoot with fire and some special effects.

The movie is currently considered as a classic Bollywood flick.

Rocket Singh

This is the movie where we saw Ranbir Kapoor as a Sikh with a turban and a beard for the very first time. The movie when it came into the screens it was not a success.

But when it came to the television, the audience realized that the storyline of the movie was actually a brilliant one. It showcased how youngsters in the sales field have to go through.

Ranbir Kapoor’s character is a loser who was seen overcoming all his odds and starting his own company. 

Dil Se 

The movie reminds us of the south movie ‘Roja’. It may be because of the similar storyline which focuses on a delicate plot of terrorism and love. The movie was not successful, maybe because it was too serious to handle.

But it received a good response when it came to television. The credits we can give to some of the amazing AR Rahman music from the movie.
