2016 was not much successful for Bollywood in terms of business but yes there were few films which made their impact on the audience. Movies like Baahubali, Sultan, M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story were great on numbers whereas movies like Mohenjo Daaro, Freaky Ali, Baar Baar Dekho failed to gather audience despite expectations. 2017 will bring a fresh start to many of us including the people from the B-town.
