Half Year Classifications: Not a single Blockbuster from Bollywood

The first half of 2017 has proven to be a dull affair for Bollywood. There has not been a single blockbuster so far and the biggest hit is a Telugu film dubbed in Hindi.

Unlike recent years, the first half saw the release of SRK, Hrithik Roshan, Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan. Yet none of the films have even crossed the 150 crores mark. The highest grosser is Raees at 134 cr while the biggest hit is Badrinath Ki Dulhania.

    1. Raees had full potential to cross 200 crores but the clash with kaabil restricted it....So unlucky Shahrukh @iam srk??

  1. it may looks bad for industry but for theater owner this has been a good year. January they made money bcoz of dangal, raees, kaabil. In Feb Jolly LLb 2, In march Badrinath ki dulhaniya then bahubali then tubelight. In between some hollywood movies as well.

  2. Tubelight is a shit given by local star sallu.Ab tu ja bhojpuri mein bana masala wahi saale teri movie chalegi bass???

  3. This has been an unusual year in terms of Box Office . In January Raees became the Highest Grosser in the month of January beating Airlift but it was not a massive success getting the verdict of Semi Hit . Kaabil was a small film in comparison with Raees and Hrithik was coming back from Mohenjo Daro which was a massive failure but still it did well . According to Bollyarena Kaabil is Average and according to Indicine Kaabil is Semi Hit . Jolly LLB 2 became the first film to enter 100 CR Club in February . Rangoon failed and was a huge disaster for Producers and distributors . BKD became the Highest Grosser in the month of March beating Kapoor & Sons . It is the 3rd 100 CR film of Varun Dhawan and 1st for Alia Bhatt . It was extremely profitable for Dharma Productions and distributors . Noor and Begum Jaan failed in the month of April . Bahubali 2 was a box office hurricane and destroyed all box office records into pieces . It is the biggest hit of 21st Century beating Gadar . It is the biggest hit of this decade . May started on a poor note with Meri Pyari Bindu and Sarkar 3 biting the dust in terms of Box Office . Half Girlfriend failed but it was expected to be successful just like 2 States entering 100 CR Club in 2014 . Hindi Medium has been the biggest surprise this year . Hindi Medium has done more business than Phillauri, Naam Shabana, Half Girlfriend and Raabta . Sachin : A Billion Dreams was really good in terms of business after understanding it was not a typical Biopic but a docudrama . Raabta was never expected to succeed and the same happened . Big failure for Sushant and Kriti after MSD and Heropanti respectively . The biggest failure this year has been Tubelight . Nobody expected Tubelight as a flop . In the worst scenario people thought it will be a Hit but Box Office is extremely unpredictable and this happened this year with Salman giving his 2nd flop in this decade after Veer . I have always said this before it is extremely difficult to give Blockbusters on non holiday . Hence JHMS, Baadshaho, TEPK, Judwaa 2 and Padmavati will not get Blockbuster verdict easily . Golmaal Again and TZH have the best chances to emerge Blockbusters because both these films are releasing on Diwali and Christmas respectively . Secret Superstar can be a surprise Hit even though Aamir is playing a cameo . So till now this has been a mixed year in terms of business . The 2nd half of 2017 will decide whether this will be a great year in terms of business or average . !!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Gawar Jaddotard Alia's 2 states was a 100 cr film that too without rakesh roshan calculator

  4. @bollyarena correct u article . The biggest Hit of the year is Jolly LLB 2 instead of BKD .
    BKD released during Holiday period of Holi. And jolly released during dullest period of year nd became first 100 cr grosser of that month . So biggest grosser is Jolly llb 2 . An if u adjust collections of Jolly according to holiday period with :- Holidays , High ticket prices and free people . Then jolly ' Collection would be close to 160cr . So biggest hit is Jolly llb 2 .

  5. Each and every day budget of tubelight increase just because of critic want to declare it as a flop but it will cross 150cr sure shot its multiplex movie but single screen audience liked it very much just because they can feel faith,trust and self confidence wo log roj zindagi se ladte hai aur parivaar ki asli kimmat wo jante hai paisewale ya showoff karte hai ya fir baap bete ka ego ko leke clash hota rehta hai.tubelight deserve super hit but it seems difficult 2nd weekend 30cr.sultan will create history in china dangal to giyo china main.best action film goes to sultan in all internation market award given by jacky chain in sanghai

  6. @bollyarena HINDI MEDIUM sure shot superhit hai. ..
    Budget 22 Bo 65 almost thrice


    Budget 47 Bo 118 it's hit not superhit

  7. Simple if raees and kaabil didn't clash raees would have done 200+cr and kaabil 150+cr and jolly 2 should have released on eid and tubelight on a normal week as jolly 2 was that kind of cinema eid crowd wants and tubelight would have found more appreciation if it released on a normal Friday as people would have known what to expect

    1. Bina dekhe koi kaise decide kare ki movie kaisi hogi.jolly llb 2 dekhi achhi lagi isi liye tu bol raha hai ki eid par release karna tha bhai tube light ki aisi expectation thi ki wo 300cr to earn kar hi legi har producer ko yahi hi lagta tha no doubt tube light is superb movie but negativity itni ho gayi hai point is agar jolly llb 2 eid pe release hoti to itni screen bhi ma milti aur nahi itna collection hota

  8. Tubelight ka budget 145 kab hua koi btayega budget 100 cr
    Satellite rights 133 cr isme 145 kaha se aa gaya Ya fir so called analysts me bna diya

    1. The market value of the actor is added to budget if he is a producer, co-producer or works on a profit sharing formula. Recent examples are Raees, Jolly LLB 2, Kaabil etc.

      1. Salman is producer of tube light but you have added his free also in budget do tube light get flop tag easily where ever mostly time also satellite deal is Salman few in another movies
