Box Office Verdicts: First Half 2013

The first half of 2013 was good for Bollywood as business saw a jump of around 10% from the same period last year. 87 films released between January and June, with total collections of around 1,225 crores.

While the first half of 2012 had major grossers like Hrithik Roshan’s Agneepath, Akshay Kumar’s Housefull 2 and Rowdy Rathore, the biggest grossers of the first half of 2013 were Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Race 2 and Aashiqui 2.

YJHD was expected to cross the 100 crore mark, but the Ranbir Kapoor starrer went on to create history by collecting a mind-boggling Rs 187 crore net (by far the highest for a non-holiday release).

The biggest surprise of the year was Aashiqui 2. Produced by Vishesh Films and T-Series at a budget of around 16 crore including print and marketing, the Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor starrer collected Rs 83 crore at the domestic box-office.


Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (187 crore)
Aashiqui 2 (83 crore)


Jolly LLB (31 crore)
Chashme Baddoor (42 crore)
Fukrey (38 crore)
Raanjhanaa (50 crore+)


Race 2 (93 crore)
Special 26 (66 crore)
Kai Po Che (44 crore)
Anybody Can Dance (38 crore)

The second half of 2013 has much bigger releases like Chennai Express, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobaara, Besharam, Boss, Krrish 3 and Dhoom 3. These films alone might collect 1000 crores or more!



  • After the success of ABCD, brothers Arbaaz Khan and Sohail Khan have decided to co-direct its sequel, titled ABCD: Any Body Can Direct.


  • first half is decent…but d second half has many big films…shahrukh, hrithik, akshay, ranbeer, saif, aamir all have their big films lined up in d coming 5 months..nd yes @indicine u r rite these films can alone made 1000cr+


  • Don’t be surprised if this year’s biggest hit is that of Ranbir with Besharam.

    I know there is D3 and K3 too, but Ranbir is becoming huge and if the Dabangg director weaves his magic once again, then sky is the limit.

    My view is based on his recent hits, which is just unimaginable – an average romantic movie fetches 180+ crs and a deaf and dumb character movie goes on to collect 100+ Cr.

    This is no fluke, and hence i guess Besharam is going to create some record.


  • CE-70 crores
    OUATIMD-145 crores
    KRRISH3-210 crores
    BOSS-120 crores
    BESHARAM-120 crores
    TOTAL-865 crores
    sorry indicine,,it doesn’t makes 1000 crores.


  • Chennai Express = 190Cr
    OUATIMD = 105Cr
    Satyagrah = 75Cr
    Besharam = 135Cr
    Boss = 95Cr
    KRRISH3 = 195Cr
    Dhoom3 = 205Cr
    TOTAL = 1000Cr ;-)
    So YES, the biggies of 2nd Half can collect 1000Crores if you also include ‘Satyragrah’
    Most Importantly lets hope all of them have good content providing wholesome entertainment.


  • END of 2014
    dhoom3 – 250 cr.
    k3 – 210 cr.
    besharm – 175 cr.
    boss – 155 cr.
    ouatimd – 140 cr.
    ce – 125 cr.
    satyagarh – 105 cr.


  • I got fed up with the double standard of indicine from last few months.. They show the official datas for few movies which they support and the boi datas for movies which they don’t like. And also before few days they declared yjhd as atbb and now as blockbuster only.. Stop doing this indicine. You are losing your reputation now a days because of such activities and i always get disappointed from you due to such double standards.


  • My predictions (Minimum-Maximum):

    CE : 132-135 cr
    OUATIMD : 145-155 cr
    Boss : 120-135 cr
    Besharam : 115-130 cr
    Krrish 3 : 190-205 cr
    Dhoom:3 : 200-215 cr
