Unable to deploy custom helm chart in GKE, no pods created

I have helm 3 and gcloud installed on my local(windows) machine, and I am able to access my gke cluster using kubectl command.
I have gone through several tutorials and I am able to install helm charts from public repository, but when I try to deploy my custom helm charts (available on my local machine) using this command helm install <my_custom_chartname> . the pods don’t come up in the cluster, however I get a success message every time also it creates the service defined in the chart.
Am I missing something?
