From Jawan’s Rs. 600+ crores to 21 films earning in Rs. 0-1 crore range, here are the MOST DEFINITIVE box office RECORDS of 2023

By Joginder Tuteja

2023 was a remarkable year for Bollywood as the industry bounced back in a very big way. Also, it did record business, the highest ever in a single year, hence resulting in excellent resurgence. That said, lesser numbers of films were successful, and it was the real big ones that brought in maximum moolah while a record count of films turned out to be flops or disasters. The silver lining is that the true potential of the box office was realized and now in the coming years, superstars can brace up for some real big grossers.

Lesser releases, more earning
- 63 notable Hindi films were released in theatres
- Rs. 4600 crores nett came as Box Office earnings, which makes 2023 the best year ever for Bollywood (Previous best was 2019 when Rs. 4390 crores nett came as Box Office earnings)
- Top-4 films [Jawan, Animal, Pathaan and Gadar 2] contributed Rs. 2262 crores, which is more than 50% of the overall earnings

Second best haul ever in Rs. 100/200/300 Crores Clubs
- 14 films entered the Rs. 100/200/300 Crores Club [Jawan, Animal, Pathaan, Gadar 2, Tiger 3, The Kerala Story, Dunki, Salaar [Hindi], Rocky aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, OMG 2, Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, Adipurush (Hindi), Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan and Dream Girl 2] (2019 still stays the best ever with 17 films in the Rs. 100/200/300 Crores Club)
- 4 films [Jawan, Animal, Pathaan and Gadar 2] entered the Rs. 500 Crores Club
- 2 films [Tiger 3 and The Kerala Story] entered the 200 Crore Club

Greater number of Blockbusters/All Time Mega Blockbusters

High count of Flops

Better outcome for sequels/franchises

- 2 sequels/franchises were flops/disasters [Yaariyaan 2 and Khichdi 2]

More films with notable business
- 6 films did business of 50-100 crores [Fukrey 3, Bholaa, Zara Hatke Zara Bachke, Sam Bahadur, SatyaPrem Ki Katha and 12th Fail]

When films flopped, they flopped really bad
- 18 films did business of only 1-10 crores
- 21 films did business of mere 0-1 crore
