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 (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 (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 (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

  • Pan Singh Tomar – 13 crore
