Over a dozen expected films of already proved actors, directors, and technicians working in it did not bring results in the year 2017.

A director like Poori Jagannath with handsome hunk Ishan close relative of JDS Dr CR Manohar did not click in ‘Rogue’ but the hero with good looks and height strike the attention of media. TS Nagabharana son Pannagabharana created hype from ‘Happy New Year’ in B C Patil production and Srushti Patil debut with well known actors crushed miserably in the box office.

Dr Shivarajakumar ‘Srikanta’ and ‘Mass Leader’ failed to click, super star Upendra ‘Upendra Maththe Baa’, Ramesh Aravind ‘Pushpaka Vimana’, Dhananjay as ‘Allamma’ in TS Nagabharana direction suffered in the box office, Dhananjay in Guruprasad direction ‘Eradane Sala’ got more attention in controversy list, Challenging star Darshan and Deepa Sannidi ‘Chakravarthy’ in debut direction of Chintan AV was another big flop in box office, Raaga in production and acting in lead role by Mithra, Masthi Gudi of Dhuniya Vijay (the film got attention for death of two actors in helicopter jump in 2016) was a disaster in box office.
