Year 2013 has been a great year for Bollywood at the Box-Office. On one hand a lot of films managed to do good amount of business and on the other lots of them made it to the 100 crore club with great ease.
The bollywood year began with Race 2 and ended with Dhoom 3, both films made it to the 100 crore club, while the former did set a tread at the Box-Office lets not talk about the latter, because the number of records that Dhoom 3 has already registered and the number of records that it would eventually end up making is an endless saga.
Lets compare the First Half of 2013 to the Second Half:
First Half (January 2013 to June 2013): Bollywood films like Race 2, Special 26, ABCD – Any Body Can Dance, Kai Po Che, Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns, Chashme Buddoor, Aashiqui 2, Shootout at Wadala, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and last but not the least Raanjhanaa were released. Out of these Race 2, Aashiqui 2, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Raanjhanaa made it to 100 crore club.
Second Half (July 2013 to December 2013): Bollywood films like B.A. Pass, Ship Of Theseus, Chennai Express, Shuddh Desi Romance, Grand Masti, The Lunchbox, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Shahid, Krrish 3, Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela and last but not the least Dhoom 3 were released. Now most of the films in this quarter either made it to the 100 crore club or were critically acclaimed.
However the films that fell flat at the Box-Office were Himmatwala, Yamla Pagala Deewani 2, Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara, Satyagraha, Phata Poster Nikhla Hero, Besharam, Boss and Bullet Raja.
Some small films that made a mark were Kai Po Che, B.A.Pass, Shahid and Ship Of Theseus, The Lunchbox and Club 60 once again proved a point that content is king.
Now its time to welcome the year 2014 with films like Dedh Ishqiya, Jai Ho, Hasee Toh Phasee, Gunday, Highway, 2 States, Heropanti, Gulaab Gang, P.K., Humshakals, Queen, Happy New Year and many more lined up.
It looks like this year too would be a rocking year for Bollywood.
