2022 has turned out to be one of the worst years for Bollywood that we have ever witnessed. In terms of the BO collection, this year proved to be somewhat of a dry spell for the Hindi film industry. No matter how big the celebrity was, so-called bigwigs failed to deliver hits this year including some South Indian films.
Moreover, many films which were considered a certified crowd-puller turned out to be complete disasters at the box office. Several films opened to critical praise and even received great word-of-the-mouth but still tanked at the box office.
Here are the top 12 disaster movies in India in 2022-
1) Radhe Shyam
Nobody expected a movie from Prabhas who is a global star after Baahubali became such a disaster.

Led by Akshay Kumar, the film was one of the most anticipated movies of 2022. Unfortunately, it failed to grab the audience’s attention.
After Master, everybody had high hopes for Thalapathy Vijay’s next, and everyone thought Beast was a sure shot hit but it failed to perform.
