New Delhi: As the year 2013 nears its end, we give you an insight into Bollywood films - both the hits and misses at the box office. While many films were trashed by critics, there have been a few that proved lucky for the industry and raked in the moolah. Read on to know about the projects that were panned and found several takers in 2013.

The Attacks of 26/11: Only a filmmaker of Ram Gopal Varma's caliber could make a movie on 2008 terrorist attacks and still not elicit strong reactions. The reason? Where were the emotions?

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns: The sequel to Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster was back with a whimper. If its power games, witty dialogues flattered a few, slipshod editing made the film so bizarre.

Saare Jahaan Se Mehenga: Even though it dealt with the issue of inflation, and its effect on the commoners, the impact was deflated.

3G: If you bumped into movie buffs saying, 'Ae G, o G, suniye G, don't watch 3G' the key reason was its protagonists' zero acting skills. Who is interested exotic locales when the casts' dialogue delivery and expressions are pedestrian?

Mere Dad Ki Maruti: Although the idea wasn't unusual - a teenager's desperate and consistent attempt at wooing a girl, a boy's fright of father's rage, and a Punjabi wedding - the film's humour made it a one-time watch.

Jolly LLB: While a small-time lawyer optimizes his chances of succeeding in life when an interesting opportunity comes his way, the viewers relate to the society's indifference towards the poor and chinks in the judicial system.

Rangrezz: ZZZ was how movie buffs described the flick. Adapted from the Tamil film Naadodigal, it is the perfect example of how one shouldn't remake a film.

Aatma: The unsurprising supernatural thriller was just so predictable. Since the film lacked 'aatma' it had to be trashed.

Sona Spa: Naseeruddin Shah must be still wondering what made him sign the film in first place.

Himmatwala: Only Sajid Khan could think of remaking 'Himmatwala' and end up making even a worse film than the original.

Chashme Buddoor: Farooq Sheikh and Deepti Naval tried too hard to not stab David Dhawan after seeing the bad rip off enunciated with sexist jokes.

Rise of the Zombie: Laced with much blood and gore, the film has nothing new to offer and instead makes you feel like a zombie after all the brainless antics.

Nautanki Saala: The name brings back the memories of the most pathetic on-screen smooches in a long time. From acting to the storyline, all you wanted to shout was 'Nautanki Saala'.

Commando - A One Man Army: No one remembers much about the film apart from Vidyut Jamwal's punches and stunts. But is that enough?

Ek Thi Daayan: Kannan Iyer brings back witchcraft in films and manages to intrigue and spook you at the same time.

Aashiqui 2: Not as good as the original 'Aashiqui' but enough for the lovers to croon 'Sunn Raha Hai Na Tu' 24*7.
