Our regional film industry like Tamil, Telugu & Punjabi are also reaching new heights in terms of film making and giving tough competition to Bollywood. Overall, 2017 has been a decent year at the box office. Not the best, but decent enough. Let's take a look at how this year has been for our movies.
First Quarter Of 2017
The first quarter of the year ranging from January to March witnessed many interesting Bollywood Movies. The list is quite big but the two movies which created the maximum buzz are listed below:
Clash of Kaabil and Raees:
Both Kaabil and Raees released on the same day of January month hence gave a stiff competition to each other. They were both the first 2 major 2017 Bollywood movies.
Shahrukh Khan starrer Raees was an action crime-thriller. The movie was already successful when its trailer released and it created massive buzz in the Industry and among the fans. The buzz was also very obvious as the film starred Shahrukh Khan in a negative role after a long time.
On the other hand, Hrithik Roshan starrer Kaabil was the first revenge drama Bollywood movie of 2017. It also starred Yami Gautam along with Hrithik Roshan making them a fresh pair.
Kaabil was a very fresh concept while Raees was a typical Bollywood Masala movie. They clashed at the box office and both the movies came out as winners and made it to the top of best Bollywood movies of 2017.
Apart from these 2 movies, there were other successful films like Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya and Akshay Kumar's Jolly LLB 2.
But there were some disappointments in the form of OK Jaanu and Rangoon. Rangoon was a much-awaited film Vishal Bhardwaj but it could not perform well at the box office.
Second Quarter (April to June)
This Quarter was perhaps the best of the year till now. And all credit goes to the giant Bahubali 2, which not only set records in India but broke records worldwide as well. The film managed to break the 500 crore barrier in India and crossed around 2000+ worldwide.
Another Major release was a biopic on the life of a legend cricketer, Sachin Tendulkar released with a positive word of mouth. Seeing the fan following of Sachin Tendulkar and the fever of cricket in India, the film was expected to do similar to MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, but it managed only average figures at the box office.
Hindi Medium came as a big surprise among all the Bollywood movies of 2017. The movie starred a very talented actor Irrfan Khan and a Pakistani actress Saba Qamar in the lead roles. The film received positive reviews from the critics before its release. Also, the audience appreciated the performance of the stars and the concept of the movie. The movie appealed to the every segment of the society since it raised the general topic of education among the social lives. And the Movie did very well at the box office as well and became the sleeper hit of 2017.

There were also a Few Disappointments like Raabta, Bank Chor, Half Girlfriend & Sarkar 3. The Biggest disappointment of them all was Salman Khan's Tubelight. Bigger Movies fail more Badly, and that's what happened with Tubelight.
July to December
The second half of this year looks very promising as we have many major upcoming movies. The Movies which are being most awaited are
Jab Harry Met Sejal
Toilet Ek Prem Katha
Tiger Zinda Hai
The expectations from these movies are very high and we hope each and every one of them crosses the mark of 100 crores at least.
The second half already started on a slower note with first Major Release Jagga Jasoos doing below the mark collections.
