Bollywood Box Office

Biggest Grossers of 2012 (so far)

As we enter the second quarter of 2012, the first three months have been pretty good for Bollywood. Some films that were expected to do well, failed and a couple of films with limited mass-appeal were the biggest surprise hits.

Below is a Top 5 list of the biggest grossers so far this year

Players

  • Players (29 crore) – Considering the costs, Players is one of the biggest disasters so far this year. But purely in terms of numbers, it’s ahead of surprise hits like Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya and Pan Singh Tomar. FLOP

Ek Main Aur Ek Tu

  • Ek Main Aur Ek Tu (40 crore) – The film opened to glowing reviews, but under-performed at the box-office after it’s first week. Business was best at multiplexes, as the film was mainly targeted towards the urban youth. ABOVE AVERAGE

Agent Vinod

  • Agent Vinod (47 crore expected) – Prior to the film’s release, Agent Vinod was expected to be Saif Ali Khan’s biggest grosser. Unfortunately, the Sriram Raghavan directed film crashed after it’s initial weekend.  BELOW AVERAGE

Kahaani

  • Kahaani (50 crore+ expected) –  The best reviewed film of 2012, is also the biggest ROI (return-on-investment) hit of the year so far. Kahaani has surpassed all expectations at the box-office. SUPER HIT

Agneepath

  • Agneepath (120 crore) – With  collections similar to Salman Khan’s Ready (2011), Agneepath is the biggest grosser of the year so far. It’s also the 5th highest grosser in Bollywood history after 3 Idiots, Bodyguard, Dabangg and Ready! SUPER HIT

Other Noteworthy films that did well in the first quarter

  • Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya – 20 crore
  • Pan Singh Tomar – 13 crore

Films that were expected to do well, but failed

  • Players
  • Jodi Breakers
  • Agent Vinod
  • Ek Deewana Tha

  • Agneepath -- 120 Crores
    ETT -- 130-40 Crores because releasing on non holiday & not masala like other salman films.
    London Ishq- 110 Crores bcoz single screens wont like it & last 2 jokes of srk
    Talaash -- 115 Crores bcoz trailer was below expectation and no action and comedy.
    Dabangg 2 -- 150 crores if mixed & above 170 crores if good word of mouth like first one.

  • Ritesh is always underrated.His acting is very better than Imran.TNLH should have done 40 crore like EMAET.And am sure SRK’s next will definitely work and bring back the era of love stories that have been destroyed by stupid action and masala remakes.

  • KAHAANI is the bigget ROI hit, no body thought of it 1 week before its release and even till 1st weekend noone could guess it,. It is only the weekday figures from Monday onwards, people started looking at its figures and then it is phenomenal second week with just 20% drop from week 1.

    May be people are giving big banner big starcast movies name rightnow, but at the end of tyhe year there may be big surprises.
