Out of all the movies that entertained us over the year, you might be wondering which are the top 10 best movies? Well, we are going to provide you with this information only.
The most shocking thing that happened was Telugu Industry’s overtake on Bollywood. Everyone knows of the mega giant Bahubali that graced the silver screen last year. This movie was dubbed in Hindi and was released all over India. The marketing gimmicks and the curiosity it raised before its release, led to the biggest wonder happening in Bollywood. The Hindi dubbed version of this movie broke every record held by the Hindi movie ever before.
Here is the list of top 10 Hindi grossers of the year 2017:
- Bahubali 2 – The Conclusion
This is the 2nd part of blockbuster Telugu movie, Bahubali The Beginning. The movie opened to the curious question “Why Katappa Killed Bahubali?”. The Hindi dubbed version of this movie collected around Rs. 501 Crores at the box office.
- Tiger Zinda Hai
This is the sequel to ‘Ek Tha Tiger’. The journey of Tiger to save his country continues in this part as well. Tiger Zinda Hai collected around Rs. 340 Crores at the box office. After this movie’s success, Katrina Kaif even raised her fees for any upcoming movie. And its song, Swag Se Swagat, is still trending among top 5 positions everywhere on the charts.
- Golmaal Again
This is the 4th movie of Golmaal Franchise. And this movie marks 10 years of this franchise, with Golmaal 1st part releasing in 2006. This time, other than the lead 5 actors, Parineeti Chopra and Tabu graces their presence. Golmaal Again collected Rs. 205 Crores at the Indian box office. This is also one of the biggest movies of Ajay Devgn’s career.
In this movie, Shah Rukh tried something different than his regular romantic roles. And this experiment of Shah Rukh Khan became successful since it appears in top 5 movies of 2017. Unlike his previous movies, this time, he gave a Bollywood opening to Pakistan’s top model and actress, Mahira Khan. But she became rather unsuccessful in her attempt to woo Indian audience. Raees made Rs. 140 Crores at Indian theatres.
- Judwaa 2
Apart from Dilwale, which also featured Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, Judwaa 2 became the biggest grosser of Varun Dhawan’s career. This is the remake of super hit Judwaa, starring Salman Khan. Varun Dhawan’s stepping into Salman’s shoes became successful with Judwaa 2 earning Rs. 138 Crores at the box office. This movie continued the trend of including remake songs, with 2 songs from original movie recreated in Judwaa 2.
This movie opened to a fabulous response. Both the lead actors appeared blind in this movie. And their such effort was highly applauded by the audience. Kaabil collected Rs. 127 Crores at the box office. This movie opened along with Raees, and hence gave very tough competition to the movie. Apparently, it proved as a loss when both could have collected even more if they would have released solo.
- Toilet – Ek Prem Katha
This movie focuses on a social cause. Akshay Kumar these days is inclined more towards making movies meaningful. Now whether it is a social cause movie, like Toilet, or real life movie, like Airlift. All these movies are highly appreciated and loved by the people. The Khiladi has aptly moved to an amazing genre. The Indian box office collection of Toilet stands at Rs. 125 Crores.
Although it appeared in top 10 positions, this movie is regarded as one of the biggest mistakes of Salman Khan’s career. Both the brothers, Salman and Sohail, appeared after a very long time on the screen. While Sohail Khan’s acting was appreciated, people highly disliked the Bhaijaan’s kid-like performance. Tubelight collected Rs. 121 Crores.
- Jolly LLB 2
Another movie of Akshay Kumar, Jolly LLB 2 collected Rs. 117 Crores at the Indian box office. This is the sequel to Jolly LLB starring Arshad Warsi. Here, a very clumsy lawyer fights a life changing case at the court. The movie was well received by his fans.
- Badrinath Ki Dulhania
This movie features a super hit on screen Jodi, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt. Their chemistry is just amazing, which is proven yet again by the success of this movie. Badrinath Ki Dulhania made Rs. 117 Crores at the box office.
The difference between 1st and 2nd movie is more than 150 Crores. Bahubali 2 became the only Indian movie till date to have crossed the 500 Crores Mark. And by seeing its feat and craze, this record does not seem to get broken anytime in coming 1-2 years.
