Were the movies "Baadshah" and "Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani" well received upon release? I have heard that both of these movies were flops, however many people love both of these movies.

Were these movies successful movies?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

The question is closed because any posts here would most likely be opinion based. The person asking the question could easily Google for reviews and news on how much money either movie made to gain the answer for themselves. – MattD Oct 2 '13 at 16:12

The movie Baadshah was not really what you would call a "flop" - the movie opened very well, netting US$2.6 million but went on to gross US$4.6 million. This makes it the #6 movie of 1999 in the Indian Box Office.

These numbers are, however, below average in the world wide market in comparison to many of the other movies released in 1999.

Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani, on the other hand, was declared a flop by the Indian Box Office, and it went on to rank #16 in the Indian Box Office for 2000.
