Bollywood has invested a lot of its time and effort into making biopics and stories based on true events, to showcase the lives of people, less talked about. A lot of things have happened in the past and recent times that have changed the nomenclature of the country but haven't really gotten the limelight they deserve.

But there are some movies even though they were critically appreciated but did not get any box-office success while some were plain horrible. So here are movies based on real-life events that did not click with the audience.

Manjhi -The movie starring Nawazuddin Siqqiui and Radhika Apte was a biopic Dashrath Manjhi, India's mountain man who single-handedly made a road through the mountains of Gehlaur. What gave him the strength to take on this onerous task is his deep love for his wife who met with an accident there. Manjhi though critically acclaimed did not much love with the audience and proved to be a flop at the box-office.

Rahasya -Based on the 2008 sensationalized murder case of Aarushi Talwar and Hemant Banjade, the movie starred Kay Kay Menon, Tisca Chopra, Ashish Vidyarthi, and Ashwini Kalsekar. While the movie keeps us intrigued for some time, it falls apart completely with a rather contrived explanation that labors hard to connect the scattered dots that made the mystery exciting in the first place. The movie bombed at the box office making it a huge flop.

LOC Kargil - Based on the armed conflict between India and Pakistan in 1999, the JP Dutta directed movie starred an array of stars like Sanjay Dutt, Saif Ali Khan, Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor, Esha Deol, Raveena Tandon and many more! Kargil had none of the epicness as Dutta's Border had failed miserably at the box-office.

The Attacks Of 26/11- The Ram Gopal Varma directorial recreates Mumbai's tryst with terror on November 26, 2008, when ten terrorists came over in a boat and laid siege to the city making it one of the worst terrorist attacks on Indian soil. Although being one of RGV's better-directed movies, the movie does not bring anything new to the table. With an ineffective story-telling, the movie was a huge flop at the box-office.

Main Aur Charles - Written and directed by Prawaal Raman, Main Aur Charles fictitious thriller inspired by true events told from the perspective of the Indian cop who handled the case of serial killer Charles Sobhraj. Even with Randeep Hooda's exceptional portrayal of Charles, the comes off as a slapdash, confused collage of scenes and was ultimately a box-office dud.

Mumbai Meri Jaan- The movie based on the terrifying 2006 Mumbai train blasts, Mumbai Meri Jaan is about the lives of 5 different people from different walks of life and how they get affected during the blasts and the aftermath of it. The movie oozed sincerity, but alas could not find a place among the audience and thereby tanking at the box-office.

Paltan -The war drama, once again from the bag of JP Dutta was based 1967 Nathu La and Cho La clashes along the Sikkim border after 1962 Sino-Indian War. In a typical JD Dutta way, long stretches of on-field action are occasionally punctuated with trademark JP Dutta flashbacks of wives and lovers back home. The movie offered nothing new only for showing a few stars look good in uniform.
