Father of all Disaster Decades[Salman Khan 2000- 2009]Delight44 | May 8, 2012, 7:49 PM | 114 comments | 2,752 views
Analysis of most disastrous phase in the history of Bollywood on all parameters:Box Office Acceptance, controversies,Imdb Ratings,etc. etc.
The phase [2000-2009] when SALMAN gave only a single solo Hit Wanted  in 10 years and gave 13 flops/disasters.
1.Box Office[only Solo,with imdb rating]
Maine Pyaar Kyu Kiya[5.7]
Dulhan Ham le Jengay[4.9]
Har Dil j0 pyaar karega[4.8]
Chori Chori Chupke Chupke[5.7]

[All above movies are solo release of Salman Khan ,
Multistarrer Films like MSK,Partner and No entry are excluded ]
2.Imdb rating :
Pathetic to say the least.Most of the movies are under 5.
3.Controversies and Jail Yatra:
=>On 28 September 2002, Khan was arrested for rash and negligent driving. His car had run into a bakery in Mumbai; one person who was sleeping on the pavement outside the bakery died and three others were injured in the mishap
=>On 17 February 2006, Khan was sentenced to one year in prison for hunting the Chinkara, an endangered species.
=>On 10 April 2006, he was handed a five year jail term and remanded to Jodhpur jail until 13 April when he was granted bail.
=>few other achievements:
i)Black Buck Case
ii)KAT Bday party fiasco
iii)Vivek Oberoi romance call
iv)Fights with John,Shahid ,Aish Brother,alleged blackmail and life threat to victims of car accident to withdraw the case.
1)1 solo Hit
2)4 times Jail
3)half a dozen criminal cases
5)8 disasters,5 flops
6)As cinema halls were mostly deserted during his movies, the only way Salman interacted with his fan following was thru Jail Yatra[His only innovation during those 9 years].
7)Box Office wise he was nowhr in top 10.
8)Poor ratings for nearly all movies(universally rejected).
Even worse part is that the only Hit was given during 10th year,if we take 9 years from 2000-2008, Salman has zero solo Hits, 13 flops and disasters , and criminal cases of drunk driving ,running car over ppl and killing animals. for which he got 5 year jail in 2006 but thanks to our judiciary he got bail and is still roaming free.
I hope those killed animals and accident victims get justice soon.
Hamare desh me abhinetaaon ko saza nahi milti neta ko kaise milegi?

After such a decade full of disasters and flops,not a single SOLO Big Hit[the only Hit Wanted was less than 1/3rd of that years biggest Hit 3 IDIOTS],is it justified to call [on bail] Salman Khan a Superstar based on just 3 Big Hits recently….?
