How a movie fares in the domestic market is the ultimate indication of success or failure. It is also the criteria to decide the verdict on a movie, whether it’s a Flop, Hit, Semi Hit or All Time Blockbuster. Most movies which make to the top of this list are blockbusters and that’s very obvious. BOTY’s list of highest grossing Bollywood movies is currently dominated by Aamir Khan and Salman Khan. But a lot of other movies have shown major success in Bollywood and have made to this ultimate list of top Indian movies of all time. Especially the Giant from Andhra – Baahubali 2!

Movies like MS Dhoni: The Untold Story and Bajirao Mastani depended completely on buzz and word of mouth respectively. There have been movies like Tanu Weds Manu Returns which did incredible business because of the very positive word of mouth. What we want to convey is each and every kind of movie is a part of our list of Highest Grossing Bollywood Movies. And some of these are totally unexpected ones.

Every year around 3-4 Movies make it to this list of Top 25 Movies. 3 Idiots is perhaps the oldest movie which is still a part of this list. 3 Idiots released in 2009 and was the first movie to cross the 200 crores barrier in India. Nowadays Bollywood Movies are setting new benchmarks and the time is not far when an Indian movie collecting Rs. 500 crore becomes a normal thing.

The Following list is based on Net Collections, and not gross. The Net collections are obtained after deducting entertainment and other taxes from gross collections. And our source of data is trade industry and not producers(who generally inflate and report the figures). So for movies released before 2016, you may notice our figures are lower than what other websites report. But, our data is consistent and accurate.

So, Here is the list:
