There have been many disaster films in Hindi cinema since the Sohrab Modi film Jhansi Ki Rani in 1953 which was the first film to lose a huge amount of money. The film only lost 30 lakh but at that time there were hardly any films made on a budget of 30 lakhs and it was a huge amount for that time. 



There are two ways at looking at disasters, one is the amount of money they lose and then there are complete washout films which just tank but sometimes they do not lose the most money as the budgets are lower and many times there is decent recovery from non theatrical revenue against the budget.



These washouts would include films like RGV Ki Aag (2007), Drona (2008),  Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey (2010), Zanjeer (2013), Bombay Velvet (2015)  Mirziya (2015), Fitoor (2016), Rangoon (2017) among others. 83 does not come in this list as its not what you call a washout but more of a rejected film. The washout films are the ones where the public just does not care for these films and dont even give them a chance.



Below is a list of the top five losers in Hindi cinema and these are the films to have lost 50 crore or more but only one of these films is a disaster and a washout also and that is Bombay Velvet. The others are also disasters due to heavy losses but they are rejected films and not washouts. The number in brackets is the loss of the film. The washout result of Bombay Velvet can be seen by the footfalls against the other films. Zero will remain with the highest footfalls of these films as its likely that 83 will not even reach the level of Mohenjo Daro.



 1. 83 (80 cr)

Footfalls - 52 lakhs apprx (2 weeks)



2. Bombay Velvet (70 cr)

Footfalls - 22.24 lakhs



3. Zero (70 cr) (on valued SRK remuneration)

Footfalls - 68.74 lakhs



4. Mohenjo Daro (55 cr)

Footfalls - 60.17 lakhs



5. Jagga Jasoos (50 cr)

Footfalls - 49.74 lakhs
