Bollywood Box Office 2013 First Quarter Analysis. Flops Galore.

First quarter of 2013 for bollywood has been extremely low point in recent years. Unlike earlier recent years many biggies are released in the first quarter of 2013 and most of them bite the dust in the process. What is more astonishing that no film went to become major hit such as Super Hit or Blockbuster in this time period. Only 5 films saved performed reasonably well in this time frame. 

Race 2 is the saving garce of 2013 till now and went to register the first big hit in 2013. It is the only film to cross 100 crore nett mark in 2013. Few in trade suggested that in few places distributor and sub-distributor who brought the rights for high price have entitled losses from the film. Kai Po Che, ABCD and Jolly LLB are the surprise Hit of the year with literally everyone involved with the film made good profits. Special 26 another big release of the year just managed to attain Semi Hit status at the box office.

But the biggest disappointment of the year is Himmatwala without a doubt. Before release film was certain to cross 100 crore nett barrier as per trade. Even the director of the film Sajid Khan was touting it as next 150 crore film. But all claim of him fallen flat and film is struggling now to touch 50 crore nett in its lifetime. If the film fails to cross 50-55 crore nett mark in its lifetime it can easily be said biggest disaster of the year, forget about flop status. Below are the verdicts of some major bollywood films released in the first quarter of 2013.
