Wazir: The first big release of 2016 didn’t open well at the box office, but remained steady for 2 weeks. The film found appreciation in 5-10 cities, which eventually helped it become an average grosser. Average.

Airlift: Akshay Kumar’s first release of 2016 wasn’t ‘hot’ in the trade prior to release and domestic theatrical rights did not fetch a big price either, but Airlift was one of those films that got its economics right, which helped the film become the first ‘Super Hit’ of the year. Pre-release expectations as 70-75 crore range, but Airlift should finish with lifetime business of 125 crore and become the highest January grosser of all time. It’s also Akshay’s second highest career grosser. The contribution of Airlift for the month of January was more than 50%. Super Hit.

Kya Kool Hain Hum 3: A section of the trade expected Kya Kool Hain Hum to outgross Airlift, but the end result was outright rejection from the audience. KKHH3 was the biggest disappointment of January. Flop.

Mastizaade: The Sunny Leone starrer opened to a reasonably good response and sustained fairly well too. The official figures suggest the film has just about recovered costs. Average.

Saala Khadoos: Rajkumar Hirani’s name was expected to help generate interest around Saala Khadoos, but the audience did not turn up at theatres to watch the R. Madhavan starrer. It didn’t get the kind of critical acclaim that such films need to grow on word-of-mouth, which sealed its fate by the end of its first weekend. Flop.

Fitoor: Opened to disastrous response and tanked without a trace. Katrina Kaif’s career hit an all-time low with Fitoor.

Neerja: Opened slow, but gained momentum over the weekend. Was fantastic in Week 1 and eventually went on to become the 2nd highest grosser of 2016 after Airlift. Yet another film that was based on a true event.

Jai Gangaajal: Priyanka Chopra didn’t promote the film as much as she should have. The film didn’t open well, the word-of-mouth wasn’t good either. Flop.

Kapoor & Sons: The Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Fawad Khan starrer open fairly well at the box office and showed good growth over the weekend – even though the Saturday collections of the film was affected by the India vs Pakistan World Cup match. During the weekdays, the film came into its own, recording fantastic collections for nearly 2 weeks.

The Jungle Book: The biggest surprise of the year came in the form of ‘The Jungle Book’. In the next few days, the film will go on to be biggest grosser of 2016 ahead of Akshay Kumar’s Airlift. It has also severely affected the business of Shah Rukh Khan’s FAN.

FAN: The biggest release of the year featured Shah Rukh Khan in the lead. It was expected to open well, it did. It was expected to grow further on word-of-mouth, but that didn’t happen as the business of the film began to falter on Day 2 itself. The crash on Monday has sealed its fate. First Shah Rukh Khan flop after 2005’s Paheli, that in itself is the most shocking trade news of 2016.




  • Akshay Kumar is only Superstar who doing Critically acclaimed movie every year since 2012.
    all other superstar also did that type of movie like.
    Aamir did Talaash, John abraham did Madras Cafe, Salman did Bajrangi Bhaijaan name a few.

    But 2016 looking forward to it.
    take a look….Rustom, Fan, & Mohenjodaro.

  • mohenjodaro is a movie which will bring indian movies action at par with international level, the grandeur scale story music songs of the movie is itself epic epic and just epic and then there is ashu hrithik a r rehman glen boswell {who will train hrithik for stunts ,who has done matrix}, also new actress pooja hegde with hrithik .. 12 AUGUST 2016 plz come fast there will be earthquake on 12 august 2016 50 crores opening even with clash lifetime 500 crores domestic worldwide 1000 crores…

  • @BL choudhary where is PK, doesn’t it critically acclaimed. 4/5 average rating as per Bolly movie reviews which is 2nd highest ever.

  • guys hrithik is the one who in his very first movie i.e knph blasted the screen and has done variety of roles mission kashmir and fiza as terrorsit , jodha akbar as emperor , a dying patient in guzaarish a financial broker in znmd , a young man seeking revenge of his father death agneepath ,superhero series , mentally challenged in kmg , a smart thief dhoom 2 , man wt else do any bollywood fan wants many say aamir is perfectionist and i say look at this man the way he has performed these roles with such ease cannot be described in words .in my opinion hro is even better and bigger than amitabh bachan sir with due respect and even hollywood stars tom cruise etc ..let alone these 2nd grade khans and joker kumar roaming here and there and wt 2 say about ranbir ranveer varun and blah blah blah hro is ultimate gem of indian and world hro has till now not shown even 5 % of his calible wait nd watch his best is yet to come we hriothikians fully siupport him ..

  • Dear Indicine, guess you should add a column in the table, i.e. budget. This should really give readers better insights.

  • Finally Akki has given a superhit after 10-12 attempts. Congratzzz 60cr sry 80cr club’s Megastar’s fanclub!!!

  • @The phenom
    Collection of phir hera pheri was 40 cr nd bhagam bhag collection was also 40 crs . Both released in Same year then how Bhagham bhag is just hit nd Phir hera pheri Superhit ?

    Bhul bhulaiya nd hey baby both did 50 cr business, both r Superhits . Clean Superhit I will say !! Nd wht about mujse shadi karogi? ? 10 plus Superhits r there of akshay. Nd oh my God is an akshay kumar film . Akshay himself count it as his film . He promoted it also in various reality shows nd news channels . OKAY

  • According to some chameleon Akki’s hit mohra bcm a blockbuster and average khiladion ka khiladi bcm a superhit… That day is not so far when these chameleons will declare joker is a ATBB and Singh is Bandar is a ATHG…. LOL.

  • Indian navy selected akshay as their brand ambassador. Indicine pls post it if it’s true . It’s a big news I think.

  • @King sorry but you are little wrong. welcome was the first akki movie to cross 75 crores. it could have been first 100 cr grosser of akki as well as bollywood if it did’t clash with taare zameen par. i hope housefull 3 becomes the 1st 200 cr grosser of akki.

  • Will beat agneepath to be the highest grosser for Jan

    Akshay is the only bankable star who does good cinema and is self made like SRK but he does not challenge himself…

    Salman Aamir play it very very safe since last 5 years…

    125 crores for airlift with a clash and with a very English title aimed at multiplexes in metros is commendable. I doubt anyone can achieve that. By the way only Akshay has more than 30 clean success in industry it seems. With declining SRK, it’s 3-way race between Salman Aamir and Akshay . Let’s c who survives till the end.

    Hrithik is of a different generation and Ajay is almost over and will give 1-2 occasional hits. Rest all like Govinda Sunny sanjay Anil Saif Suniel are over… SRK in next 2-3 years will be like Ajay with few hits among many underperformers

  • Amongst Salman Akshay and Aamir Aamir will go for next 5 years… Eventually it will be Akshay and Salman battling out

  • 88- amir, 89- salman , 91- ajay/akshay, 92 – shahrukh…..these 5 men still rules Bollywood. Only 1 actor hrithik came in 2000 and joined the league……they all are hero of the masses…….other actor such as ranbir, varun , sidhartha are popular among urban youth and we all know how soon their flavour changes…we all know what happened with imran Khan. Only ranveer is a bright prospect.

  • Airlift is the only superhit film of January. A phenomenal success for akshay after a long time. Sex comedies like kya kool Hain hum 3 and mastizaade had bombed at the box office. Real fun will begin after FAN releases this April.

  • Phenom indicine isn’t meant to be a trade site, so they may have mistake in their verdicts rspecially for old movies , according box office india khiladi yon ka khiladi is superhit because it did 15 cr net which big for 1996. Mohra was definite superhit it was second highest grossing film of the year.

  • @aman kumar ur cmnt does not make any sense at all.u need reality dont have any truly grt performance like aamir Khan’s laagan,ghajini or pk etc let alone have grtest movies like dch,laagan,rdb,tzp,3i etc.let hr achieve the fan craze like salman or deliver a historic cult classic blockbuster like bajrangi bhaijaan then dare to compare him with ur jadoo boy.and dont say ur star is bigger than srk cause it makes me doubt ur sanity.and plz plz dont even think of comparing ur star with the the Amitabh Bachchan.let me just give one example.i guess u are yet to see the original agneepath.ur star have made the biggest mistake by trying to act as vijay chauhan made immortal by bigb coz bigbs version being a 1000 times better than ur stars version which is again ur stars one of the best actings,thereby making it very easy to determine who is great actor & who isn’t.

  • @devbrata – are you putting your bets on Ranveer due to BM ? To be frank BM was SLBs magnum opus. Ranveer was fantastic but for such movies generally it is director who is responsible for success. Such movies are remembered for their grandeur more than a star pulling in audiences.

    Let Ranveer pull up a film on his shoulders. True test will be his next with Adi. If he crosses 150 with a normal romantic movie where he plays boy next door he is the next SRK !!!

  • A hard and tight slap on those who called 3 idiots worked due to Madhavan and brand Raju Hirani. I wonder where are these idiots now ?

  • At the end of the year Indicine may post the list as:

    1. Dangal

    2. Sultan

    3. Raees / Mohenajadaro

    4. Mohenjadaro / Raees

    5. Shivaay / Fan

    6. Fan / Shivaay

    7. Housefull 3 / Dishoom

    8. Dishoom / Housefull 3
