Word Of Mouth and Box Office Verdict of 2017 Films

We keep getting a lot of questions on the word-of-mouth and verdicts of 2017 films. We have compiled a list of almost all film releases this year and included two columns; one for the verdict and the other for word-of-mouth.

‘Bahubali 2’, ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’, ‘Hindi Medium’ and ‘Jolly LLB 2’ are the only four outright winners this year. Sridevi’s MOM is carrying positive reports, it could join the list of successful films, if it manages to hold after the release of ‘Jagga Jasoos’ next week.

  • Raees the only film in this year to attain semi hit status with mixed wom thats stardom enu naam che raees akki duniya mein hi ye single piece and some give disaster on eid with mixed wom


  • Even if Tubelight is a flop nothing has been changed… In this decade, Salman Khan blockbuster count>>>>>Combined blockbusters of Aamir+srk+Akki+Ajay+Hrithik.
    #BAAP akhir BAAP hi hota hain!


  • that’s why I admire @indicine
    not biased to anyone
    when Salman giving 55 crores to distributors it means that they have lost more than 55cr…so in which world a film that lost a huge amount like this becomes below average grosser !


  • Wanting this article from long time now plss indicine Post top 15 Actors It’s now 10 months since you last posted it


  • Tubelight’s failure has changed nothing….. Bhai is still light years ahead of his contemporaries as far as opening numbers are concerned….. Let’s talk with statistics (opening numbers)………..

    Highest first day – Salman Khan starrer

    Highest first weekend – Salman Khan starrer

    Highest first week – Salman Khan starrer

    Highest first day WW – Salman Khan starrer

    Highest first weekend WW – Salman Khan starrer

    Highest first Week WW – Salman Khan starrer.


  • Ghazi attack mixed.. seriously?
    I have watched only three movies this year.
    Baahubali 2
    The latter two movies were brilliant.Raees was decent.Planned to watch tubelight but reports weren’t encouraging.
    The second half will be better in terms of content and also business.
    Jhms can be a breezy entertainer and match jwm’s standards.Looks like a fun movie unlike Imtiaz’s previous ones
    Akshay will continue his good run with Toilet.His choices are brilliant.
    G:4 will at least be better than part 2 and part 3 and considering the brand value will be Ajay’s highet grosser.
    Padmavati will be most awaited movie starring in recent times not starring a khan and SLb has delivered two consecutive high budget hits.
    And the year will end with a bang with TZH that would bring back Salman’s core fans.


  • Now let’s have a look at consistency……

    Out of top 20 highest openers 8 are Salman Khan starrers.

    Out of Top 20 highest weekend 9 are Salman Khan starrers.

    Out of top 20 highest first week collections 8 are Salman Khan starrers.

    Bollywood’s top 2 highest opening day still belong to Salman Khan.

    Out of bollywood’s 10 bumper openers of the decade 5 belong to Salman Khan.

    Out of top 15 Khans openers 8 are Salman Khan starrers..
    Now decide yourself who is the number one star.


  • Kaabil is superhit. Every newspaper, website portals and media have given it a Superhit status. Even Neutrals are considering it a blockbuster.


  • Indicine please answer me box office India gave tubelight below average verdict and koimoi gave average then why you are calling it flop


  • #Kaabil s semiHit ?
    I think dis film s D most fabricated n over rated film of any SuperStar in recent years
    Neither D film s good
    Neither any genuine critical acclaim
    Neither distributer makes profit
    Neither any respectable BO no
    Only some media house , so called trade guys shouting throughout about 40%
    I mean @indicine u guys also gv 4.5 stars 2 dis avg film ? How ?
    I really liked Hrithik s performance
    But otherwise it’s just a marketing gimmick
    And if dis film s dat much good
    N collected only 80-90 Cr
    Then I m sorry 2 say but HR S not a SuperStar by any means
    Because #Tubelight collected 120 Cr after dat much bashing
    So how can a guy s SuperStar if his one of D best film doing this kind of business where nowadays WOM running like a fire
    I m not against any1
    But dis false marketing strategies should be stopped.


  • well done indicine I am question from you
    Rangoon rating by crictics 3.1 but words of mouth is extremely negative then why high rating? it’s means crictics have nothing to do with movies.
