Bollywood yearend roundup - 2017 strikes BIG with more than Rs. 3400 crore coming in - Here is a list of all the RECORDS you want to know

2017 was a much better year for Bollywood as for the first time ever Rs. 3300 crore mark has been surpassed at the Box Office. However, a good chunk of that has come from three major films – Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion, Tiger Zinda Hai and Golmaal Again which have contributed Rs. 1000 crore between them. In fact if one removes Baahubali 2 from the equation, the overall outcome would be much lesser than 2016.

Still, for theatres there was still something better to cheer about because at the end of the day there were better footfalls in comparison. Let’s look at the comparison between 2016 and 2017 on various dimensions.

Lesser releases, more earning

– 263 Hindi films were released

– Rs. 3400 crore nett* came as Box Office earnings [*assuming Tiger Zinda Hai will do minimum 300 crore business]

– Top-10 films contributed to 43% of these earnings

More films in 100/200/300/500 Crore Clubs

– 10 films entered the Rs. 100 Crore Club [Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion [Hindi], Tiger Zinda Hai, Golmaal Again, Judwaa 2, Raees, Toilet – Ek Prem Katha, Tubelight, Jolly LLB 2, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Kaabil] (Comparatively, 6 films entered the 100 Crore Club in 2016 – M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story, Airlift, Rustom, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Housefull 3, Shivaay)

– 1 film entered the Rs. 500 Crore Club [Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion] and 1 more is on the way to Rs. 300 Crore Club [Tiger Zinda Hai] (Comparatively, 2 films – Dangal and Sultan – entered the Rs. 300 Crore Club in 2016)

Lesser number of Hits/Superhits/Blockbusters

– 1 All Time Blockbuster [Baahubali 2] and 2 Blockbusters [Tiger Zinda Hai, Golmaal Again] (Comparatively, 2 All Time Blockbusters (Dangal, Sultan) in 2016)

– 5 Superhits [Judwaa 2, Toilet – Ek Prem Katha, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Fukrey Returns, Hindi Medium] (Comparatively 6 Superhits [Airlift, Rustom, Baaghi, Neerja, Kapoor & Sons, Pink] in 2016)

– 2 Hits [Jolly LLB 2, Shubh Mangal Savdhaan] and 2 Semi Hits [Bareilly Ki Barfi, Lipstick Under My Burkha] (Comparatively, 5 Hits [M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Housefull 3, Dear Zindagi, Ki & Ka] in 2016)

Better outcome for sequels/franchises

– 7 sequels/franchises were hits (or more) films [Baahubali 2, Tiger Zinda Hai, Golmaal Again, Judwaa 2, Jolly LLB 2, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Fukrey Returns] (Comparatively, 1 sequel/franchise flick was a clean hit [Housefull 3] in 2016)

– 3 sequels/franchise flicks were flops or disasters (Sarkar 3, Julie 2, Aksar 2) [Comparatively, 7 sequels were flops or disasters [Ghayal Once Again, Kya Kool Hain Hum 3, Kahaani 2, Great Grand Masti, Rock On 2, Tum Bin 2, Tere Bin Laden – Dead or Alive] in 2016]
