Results of Most Awaited Movies of 2014

By Bollywood Hungama News Network

Like the past, this year too, we, at Bollywood Hungama conducted a poll to chart out what are likely to be the biggest blockbusters of 2014. The analysis was done in the form of a survey held in the month of December 2013 and conducted online amongst online surfers, spanning regions from UK, USA, UAE and India, wherein the user had to select his/her 10 most anticipated movies. To ensure complete transparency and accuracy, a two level authentication check with cookie validation and IP mapping was put into place.

The results of the 'Most Awaited Movies of 2014' were compiled based on votes from 138 countries - countries which constitute about 99% of revenue towards Bollywood releases. Facebook users were also allowed to vote thereby increasing the total number of votes polled and creating a larger sample size across geographies. The results drew up some rather obvious and rather interesting surprises. Read on to find out all about the Most Awaited Movies of 2014.

What to watch for in 2014

Aamir Khan

Shah Rukh Khan

Hrithik Roshan

Salman Khan

Ranbir Kapoor

Anushka Sharma

Star Quotient:

Much like the previous two years, Aamir Khan tops the list of celebrities whose films are eagerly awaited. While 2 years back it was Talaash, last year it was Dhoom 3 and this year yet again Aamir tops the charts with his eagerly anticipated film P.K.

Last year SRK who featured at number 4 on the list has got a big boost (thanks to the super success of Chennai Express) to claim the second spot with his film Happy New Year.

A new entrant to the top three is Hrithik Roshan, who claims the third spot with his film Bang Bang. Surprisingly, Hrithik also has a second film voted in the Top 10, Shuddhi, which will be produced under the banner of Dharma Productions.

Salman claims the next two slots in the Top 5 Most Awaited Films of 2014, with Jai Ho and Kick.

Ranbir Kapoor, who had two releases last year, namely Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Besharam, faced extreme reactions from the audiences, with one film becoming a hit while the other performing quite badly. Interestingly, the Kapoor lad features twice in the Top 10 list of actors with Bombay Velvet and Jagga Jasoos.

Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor too are climbing up the ladder with Gunday that is produced by Yash Raj Films.

2013 was Deepika Padukone's year, 2014 surprisingly has just one of her films, Happy New Year in the Top 10 list.

Katrina Kaif, on the other hand, has two films namely Bang Bang and Jagga Jasoos in top 10.

However, it is Anushka Sharma to watch out for, who has two big films, P.K. and Bombay Velvet in the top 10 list.

Above all, the young Alia Bhatt seems to be climbing up the ladder rather quickly with her next film Highway already making it to top 10.

Other Trends:

Deepika Padukone who had a stunning 2013 becoming the only actress to reach the Rs. 600 crore mark has dropped to number five with her small budget film Finding Fanny Fernandes coming in at the bottom of the list with the least number of votes.

Akshay Kumar who is one of the biggest superstars seems to be going through a bit of lull with not a single film of his in top 10.

With films like Bang Bang, Jai Ho, Kick, Singham 2 and Gunday toping the list, action films surely seem to be the flavour of this year.

Production Houses:

Among the production houses, Fox Star Studios India leads the list with two films, Bang Bang and Bombay Velvet making it to the Top 10 list.

Others like UTV, Yash Raj Films, Reliance, Balaji, Dharma, Red Chillies, Eros have one film each. The newly launched production house Picture Shuru Productions comes in at tenth place with the Ranbir - Katrina starrer Jagga Jasoos.

Surprisingly, biggies like Viacom 18 and Excel Entertainment don't have a single film of theirs featured in the Top 10.

Market Trends:

The Top 10 Movies remain almost the same across major markets like India, U.S.A and U.K., however, the order of the ranking shows some slight changes. As expected the Khans rule the roost in the UK with the Top 3 slots being taken by Aamir's P.K, Salman's Kick and Shah Rukh's Happy New Year. Interestingly, in the Top 5, Salman has two films while Ajay Devgn's Singham 2 comes in at the fifth place.

Ranbir Kapoor's Bombay Velvet seems to have dropped out of top 10 in the UK coming in at number 14 on the list, while Prabhu Dheva's Action Jackson starring Ajay Devgn and Sonakshi Sinha makes an entry at number 9.

Hrithik Roshan seems to be the flavor of the year post the massive success of Krrish 3, with two of his films Bang Bang, and Shuddhi again making it to the top 10 list. However, the new entrant to the list is the John Abraham starrer Welcome Back which is a sequel to Welcome.
