Hollywood vs Bollywood Box Office Performance in 2017

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

2017 has not been a great year for Bollywood. The first half is gone and none of the films have even crossed 150 crores mark. The threat of Hollywood taking over Bollywood has been increasing with time as we have seen Hollywood biggies taking better opening that local films.

However, another concern is the poor performance of Bollywood films in overseas. The first half is equally bad in overseas too. So far only one film has been able to cross $10 million mark in overseas and we have big releases starring SRK, Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Akshay Kumar in the first half. Here are the highest grossing Indian films of 2017 in overseas

  • Raees – $13.5 m
  • Tubelight – $6.25 m*
  • Badrinath Ki Dulhania – $5.73 m
  • Jolly LLB 2 – $5.20 m
  • Kaabil – $5.08 m
  • Half Girlfriend – $2.10 m
  • Phillauri – $1.81
  • Others: $6.41 m
  • Total: $46.08 m

Now check out highest grossing Hollywood films in India. This year there was only big grosser Furious 8 though most of the biggies did reasonable business and some small films also surprised.

  • Furious 8: $19.77 m
  • xXx: $8.13 m
  • The Mummy: $6.90 m
  • Logan: $6.56 m
  • Pirates of The Caribbean 5: $5.65
  • Kong Skull Island: $4.98 m
  • Beauty and The Beast: $4.14
  • Wonder Woman: $3.90 m
  • Guardians of The Galaxy: $3.42
  • Rest: $11.95 m
  • Total: $75.40 m

It clearly shows that Hollywood films have taken much more from India this year as compared to Bollywood’s share from overseas. If we compare the half year data to 2016, then Bollywood films are down.

2016 (1st Half)

  • Bollywood: $51.86 m
  • Hollywood: $92.40 m

Last year saw the release of The Jungle Book which was a historic blockbuster. So there is no surprise that total gross for Hollywood films is less. However, in the case of Bollywood films, the performance is poor as overall business is around $5 million less. This has happened despite the fact that first half of 2017 had a big Eid release starring Salman Khan and another film by Hrithik Roshan which was not the case in 2016.

The domination of Hollywood over Bollywood will continue in the second half of 2017 which is packed with releases like Spider-Man Homecoming, Thor, Justice League, Blade Runner, and Annable Creation.

    I don’t agree Hrithik’s Kaabil collected less bcoz it was in clash and jolly LLB 2 collected less as it was on judiciary system of India it wasn’t a movie that can have worldwide appeal. Second half will see the realeases of some big movies like TZH, JHMS, Padmavati, Baadshaho and Golmaal 4 . These movies will surely do better in overseas.

    • Overseawise JHMS TZH G4 JJ
      Domestic TZH G4 Padmavati/JHMS.
      Blockbusters TZH G4
      Super hits TEPK baadshaho Padmavati
      Semi Hit to Hit JHMS Munna Micheal
      Flop Jagga Jasoos

        aaajkal koi comedy dekhne k mood me nhi h na pasand v aaega bakwas comedy like last g3 ,padmavati,tepk can be overtake bo, n tzh /jhms if content is good

        • Not all comedy bro…lots of people are waiting for Golmaal 4 even though dont really gel with Ajay sir well but Ajay toh Ajay hi h. Lets hope after dull 1st half this can make us laugh and enjoy wholesome entertainment. Dont forget judwaa 2 too has good chances to please audience. TEPK just like Ajay not much gel with him but am watching out for TEPK. JHMS with good content can be big grosser but morw hope for The Dwarf to be honest. TZH no comments for now but will be one of the hgoty if not the Hgoty. Goodluck Bollywood!!!

    • Wrong statistics. Why Bahubali 2 is not considered? All records will be broken when you will consider Bahubali 2. Dont know whats the agenda behind these wrong statistics.

      @bollyarena oh come one that don’t make sense, Hollywood has been shelling out all sequels this year and a tom cruise movie,
      If you consider the sequels then Hollywood is not doing great, because a sequel should be doing great collections because of its previous movie!

      That’s like Bollywood releasing:

      Dhoom 4
      Don 3
      3 Idiots part 2
      Tiger Zinda hai
      And other sequels in one year from Bollywood

      Look at Hollywood movies this year in India almost all sequels!

  2. kuch Fan Aamir ko Global batate hai…
    kuch Salman ko
    aur kuch Srk ko

    But reality hai ki…India ka koi bhi Star World Level pe Global star nahi hai
    koi bhi nahi

    Bollywood Hollywood ke saamne kahi nahi tikti hai

    pata nahi ku??

    • Bro English is international language.
      And there budget is also high.

      In this situation we can’t compete with them.

      Just simple regional movie and Hindi movie which one do more business.

      Same way Hollywood n bollywood.
      So don’t compare with them .

      But u can compare Dangal with Hollywood film in china.

      Dangal trashes many Hollywood film in china. That is d power of bollywood n Aamir the biggest global megastar πŸ’ͺ

      Got it.

      • But sirf China hi ku??

        aur kahi ku nahi??
        Dangal to jabardastt film thi

        Aur to Aur
        POC 5
        The Mummy
        ye sab filme to 1-2 week me hi Dangal ki Chinese collection ko Overtake kar gaye
        (The Mummy ko USA me lagbhag flop hi ho gaya but China me kaise Blockbuster ho gaya???)

        Hamare Directors/producers milkar bare budget ki filme ku nahi bana sakte hai..(English me bhi)

        aisa isliye Kuki Hamare paas koi Real Global star hai hi nhi jiske chalte producers itna risk le

        Hamare stars ki filme bas India me hi chalte hai(1-2 exception ko chhorkar)

        Indian filme ke Overseas collection ke naam pe………NRI’s hi overseas me Indian filme dekhte hai kuki Indian filme unhe foreign me apna sa feeling karwata hoga

        Hamare yaha ke Stars ke Fan is kadar ek dusre se nafrat karte hai ki agr unke Hath me Talwar pakra kr ladne ke liye bola jae to…India ki aadhi population aise hi saaf ho jayegi

        at last
        I Repeat
        “Hamare paas Koi bhi Global Star nahi hai”

        Aaplog meri iss baat pe mujhe troll kar skte hai…
        but I know ye baat aaplog bhi jante honge ki “Hamare pas koi bhi Global star nahi hai..koi bhi nahi

        • Tum log kya chahte ho ??

            Kma to legi pr tere jaise log ek dusre ka comparison bhut krte h….or tere jaise log kisi or ki movie nhi dekhte chahe wo kitni b achi ho….or yhi reason h ki india m screens km h.
            Wrna india ki population world m 2nd number pe h…
            Or india ki 20% public movie dekhne jaye to Hollywood ka record tut jaye

          • Dangal bhi kon si chinese movie thi…jo bas China me hi chali

            use English Me Doub krke aur jgh bhi to release kiya gaya tha
            wha ku nahi chali..

            jbki Chinese Doubing me jabardastt chali

            ku??

            chlo Aamir to fir bhi China me dhamaal ke karan Global stage pe kadam rakh diya hai

            but
            Log Srk ko kaise Global Star bol dete….

            • @Dk

        • Pehla baat hain POC Mummy kisine bhi Dangal ko overtake nehi kiya China me ekbar Entgroup open karo you will get it.

          • Haa…
            galat info thi mere paas
            POC aur The Mummy ne China me nahi Worldwide me Dangal ko cross kiya hai

            Transformer ne China me Dangal ko overtake kiya hai

        • thakur sahab Reply

          Ha ye bat to h Dk….I agree with u…
          Dangal china m 1200 cr. Kr gyi …khi or nhi kr ski…
          Iska reason ye b h ki dangal ko kuch 9000 screens mili thi…
          Or dusra reason ye h ki dangal china walo kuch different movie lgi thi…or dangal jaisi movie china m nhi bhut km bnti h…
          Or china m koi b movie bhut kmati h or abi Hollywood ki kuch movies ne china m dangal se b double collection kiya h jinki story achi nhi thi like the mummy…..inn movies ne b dangal ka record break kr diya….fir dangal to ek sensible story thi…wo jyada kmaya story ki vjh se
          Ab iska mtlb ye nhi h ki china m amir ka craze h…..
          Proof–jis din amir china m dangal ka promotion krne k liye gya tha….or jis Stadium m gya tha…uss stadium m amir ko dekhne k liye koi b nhi aaya tha…sirf 15-20 log hi the vha…..
          So ab amir ko international language(english) k sath jodna bewkufi h….
          agr aisa hota to rajnikant ko pure world m English language se jyada log jante…

          Jo sach h usse accept kro

          • @thakur the @khaj_kumar

    • Kyoki hollywood America ka hai aur world ka sabse bada box office market hai.America me koi bhi khans ko nahi janta waha sirf indian persons Bollywood movie dekhte hai.
      Amir ki movie China me hit hoti hai par amir global star nahi hai. Global star means worldwide famous.Jackie chan ki filme China me unke naam pe chalti hai.duniya me jakie chan 5th no.pe hai box office hit dene me par unhe bhi global star nahi kaha jata. Global star means tom cruise, brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Leonardo dicaprio jo duniya bhar me famous.hai.box office kabhi global star nahi thearata.tab wo log jo box office se global star thearate hai to 2016 me jungle book aayi thi to us bachhe ko global star kehlaoge kya. Achhi filme har jagah dekhi jati hai just like dungal par amir global star nahi hai…….

        @sujit for me global star is if almost in every country and city in the world an actor can find Fans, this would be a global star!

        Salman Khan is no way a global star,

        Shah Rukh Khan has a following in almost every city in the world, from India to Africa, gulf countries, European countries, and many other cities we ain’t even heard off

        Aamir Khan has also taken over a lot of countries and one of the biggest markets in the world China has been taken over like never before by him single hand, but he needs to focus on the smaller cities as well!

        Btw Akkians should be happy because in most parts of rural areas in Africa where there are no cinemas or sometimes not even electricity are SRK and Akshay Kumar Fans these are the only 2 people they know from India and obv Gandhi!

        They call Akshay Kumar by his name and Shah Rukh Khan ‘Baazigar’

        • ARE BHAI CHINA LOCAL industri HAI. global star bane ke liye hollywood me pehchan banani hoti hai.just like priyanka chopra wo aaj global star hai.

        • To fir Srk aur Akki ki filme waha chalti ku nahi hai…

          tum bol rahe ko Srk ke Sare countries me Fan hai…
          to fir uski filme Globally at least 2-3 hazar crore ku nahi collection karti

          jaise ki Hollywood ki filme karti hai

          mai fir se bol raha hu””Hamare paas koi bhi Global star nahi hai””

          • SRK and Varun Dhawan U.K Fans Base Reply

            @sunit first you China is the at the top and has a name to its industry, without them most of Hollywood movies would flop! You can check the amount of money Hollywood makes from China if you don’t believe me, how many Hollywood movies are hits in India, do you think they will work in African countries, you switch on your TV and see oscars and all fashionable people so you think they are global stars, did you know more people watch Indian movies in the world then they watch Hollywood movies,

            Do your research and find out, don’t compare box office numbers because they have access to more screens and come out with bigger budgets and grander movies!

            Bollywood has recently started to extend its hand in other markets whereas Hollywood has been doing this for decades, it also speaks English which is one of the most spoken languages in the world!

            @Dk I didn’t say all countries, I said almost every country, you can’t focus on one word ‘almost’ and you will tell me what global star means?! Lol stay seated

            A poll was done in 2004 by a leading magazine and had found out that Shah Rukh Khan was the only person in the world who had taken over non Hindi speaking countries around the world and had more people knowing him than the whole of Hollywood, you can check it up if you want!

            A Global star is someone who is known all across the globe not every single person in the world, yes Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan are global stars!

  3. Great job hollywood
    Take over indian box office from worst Bollywood……

    • Please like you always ready to sell motherland to foreigners…

      • MOVIE DEKHI JATI HAI ENTERTAIN KE LIYE AUR HOLLYWOOD HI AAJ INDIAN AUDIANCE KO ENTERTAIN KAR RAHA HAI. DEKHLO HOLLYWOOD KA BOX OFFICE INDIA ME…….BOLLYWOOD IS WORST

        • Because of thinking of people like yours, India is always ruled by foreigners and can never grow… People like you always keep their own entertainment and luxuries over the benefits and considerations of the nation… Thats why I said, you will only think about your own entertainment… Desh gaya bhaad mein… India ki economy gayi bhaad mein…

  4. Next year 2.0 will do definitely highest buissness in overseas…this year it’s looking tough

    • 2.0 is not a Bollywood film. To be a “Bollywood” film it needs to be “Bombay Based” Even Hindi dubbed version cant make it Bollywood. Fast and furious hindi dubbed version is not bollywood. Neither are Baahubali or 2.O

  5. 2017 ka 2nd half bhi Hollywood hi jitega dekh lena bcoz Spiderman, Thor, justice league ana baaki he and. …

    2018 me bhi Hollywood hi jitega likh ke lelo next year Holly bigger movies released. …wo to Accha he avtar postponed ho gai 2020 take Warna India ki sabhi movie ka collection akele avatar ke samne kuch nhi hota πŸ‘

Too much fun !!!
