Bollywood Box Office Collection 2016 and Verdict Hit or Flop: We are moving towards the end of the year. 2016 was an average one for Bollywood as most of the films struggled to recover costs and big hits were very few. There was only one blockbuster/all time blockbuster movie which was Salman Khan starrer Sultan. Except there was not a single movie which crossed 150 crore.

The earlier half belonged to content oriented/multiplex driven films. Movies like Airlift, Neerja and Kapoor and Sons dominated the box office riding high on word of mouth and solid content. The single screens did not perform well until the release of Baaghi. Though they contributed towards Ghayal Once Again and Jai Gangajaal.

Once again Salman Khan came to the rescue of Bollywood with his blockbuster Sultan. The wrestling drama opened to some record numbers and went on to cross 300 crore. But after Sultan, things again went back to normal. Big films like Fan, Mohenjo Daro and Shivaay were big disappointments. Though the later managed to recover costs but the distributors were in losses.

So far this year belongs to Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar. Khiladi Kumar gave three hits of different genres in a span of just 8 months. In the actresses, it is Anushka Sharma who tasted box office success twice.

  1. How can you call shivaay movie as average grosser the budget was 120 cr and it collect around 99 CR and on other hand you call FAN movie a flop Fan budget was 105 cr and it collected 85 cr. Kindly explain

  2. “There was only one blockbuster/all time blockbuster movie which was Salman Khan starrer Sultan. Except there was not a single movie which crossed 150 crore.”

    That’s why Bhai is considered the GOD of Indian Cinema.

  3. “Once again Salman Khan came to the rescue of Bollywood with his blockbuster Sultan. The wrestling drama opened to some record numbers and went on to cross 300 crore. But after Sultan, things again went back to normal.”

    @admin well explained about the MESSIAH of Box Office #BeingSalmanKhan.

  4. LOL….. Some morons are blabbering nonsenses on Bimal Calculator! They might have forgotten that PAAN VILAS calculator of queen ensures extra 10cr collections in a single day. Eg- crappy old year 1st day.

  5. What a dumb logic! Listen, it’s India not Pakistan to have 4-5 holidays due to Eid. SULTAN didn’t get any holiday advantage on its 3rd & 4th day. Still it managed to collect 35+cr on those days. Can you explain this?

    Don’t behave like those morons who believe an extra holiday (Eid day) guarantees 300cr.

  6. @Bollyarena

    Why 1920 London is a Flop With 14.65cr in India while budget was 12cr & Shivaay is an Average with 99cr(PF) or 86cr(TF) while Budget is 120cr.

    Can You Explain ????

  7. #ADHM Blockbuster; I know that you are stupid and your comment reflects that, do you think that an average or just good movie can collect 300cr, and who told you that it had 5 days holiday, keep hatred aside for a moment and check whether Friday and Saturday are holiday or not, and if it is holiday then please tell me in which School, college and office have holiday these days.

    And you are talking about collection in 5 days, don’t you know that today if movie is not upto the mark then it will fall flat on it’s very 1st day (because of WOM) or max next day (FAN is the best example), then tell me how Sultan collect above 30cr in all 5 days, not only this check the day wise collection in every weekend the trend of the movie was excellent.

    Now you will say that it collects 180cr in 5 days and in rest of its run collect only 121cr, do you know that in today’s time in India only 3-4cr people (Footfall) watch movie in theaters, the most loved movie of this decade Bajrangi Bhaijaan’s Total Footfall was 3.50cr and Sultan Footfall was 3.30cr. In it’s 5 day only the footfall was 2+cr and in rest of the run it generate more 1.3cr which is huge because hardly any other movie have crossed 1cr footfall this year (only 1 or 2)…….Beside this 2nd highest grosser of the year MSD collects 130cr and Sultan collects 121cr (except 5 days collection) which says it all……

    For a minute keep your hatred aside and praise other hard work also, Salman again save Bollywood, just imagine if Sultan also won’t perform then what will happen to Bollywood this year, 300cr Domestic and 589cr Worldwide is not small figure that too from just 1 movie….

  8. #ADHM Blockbuster; Ohh I am always here bro, visit Bollyarena almost daily, read comment including yours (as much I can), and sometime wants to reply after reading your hateful comment, but didn’t because going through very tough schedule, too much work load…..but don’t worry soon I will be back to praise my Hero Salman’s Hard work and to kick the A*S of his haters……Till then stay healthy…..

    And congrats for the success of ADHM, finally after long struggle Ranbir get the much needed success, but still KJo is the main reason for the success of movie, also with Ranbir Hard work (No one can take away that from him)…….Still JJ is the real test for him…..So best of luck for future….

  9. Shivaay budget. 120cr
    Domestic Collection 101cr
    Satellite rites 50cr
    Music and home. Video rites 10cr
    Overseas share 15cr
    Domestic distributor share 50cr
    Total 120cr to 125 cr recovery which means shivaay is average. Not flop
