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.
The list is currently dominated by Aamir Khan and Salman Khan but a lot of movies have shown major success in Bollywood and have made to this ultimate list of highest earning Indian movies. Especially the Giant, Bahubali 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.
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.
