Bajrangi Bhaijaan is an All Time Blockbuster (ATBB)

Celebration begins for all Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan fans as Bajrangi Bhaijaan is declared All Time Blockbuster by trade. Film garnered Highest Footfalls of the decade surpassing biggies like PK, 3 Idiots, Dhoom 3, Dabangg and Ghajini who are the recent all time blockbusters. Film easily crossed footfalls of Chennai Express, Ek Tha Tiger who are close to touted being ATBB but missed by few miles. Footfall of Bajrangi Bhaijaan is set to end in around 3.55-3.6 crores in India which is Epic. Definitely it will come in one of the highest footfalls of all time.

In other major records film has surpassed Dhoom 3 (ATBB) lifetime nett collection by 35 crores and it is still running in theaters. Although film will fall short of PK lifetime collection by less than 20 crores. One of the main reason for that is Average Ticket Price of BB is slightly lower than that of PK. Will discuss that in detail in some time later. Film distributor share is 2nd highest all time just behind PK and if BB somehow manages good run in 6th and 7th week also then it might touch that. Also, film has set all time records in many circuits which is also another important factor. So, overall Bajrangi Bhaijaan is a well deserved All Time Blockbuster and we hope soon another film join this elite list in coming times.

Hello! Like to say something or having a query regarding the post. Then use the comment section below. Thanks!


  1. Admin, if u simply following Trade, then Dabangg is Blockbuster not ATBB.
    If you considered Dabangg ATBB then Chennai Express should be included in your List.
    So think again......

    1. Chanai express is ATBM but this year dhoom 3 released and break the record of Chanai express thare for at end of the year dhoom3 is ALTB

      Dabanng is ALTB because off it is only second hiest grossing movie off India after 3edits and Dabanng is 2010 hiesht grossing movie.thare for it is ATBM.

      Thank you admin.

  2. As u follow producre figures, Chennai Express is declared All Time Blockbuster by Taran Adarsh and many.....
    I don't understand your criteria......

    1. Dear Arvind.. Yes many have declared CE and ETT as ATBB. Even Bodyguard is declared ATBB then. But things doesn't goes like this. It should be universally accepted all across trade. Coming to Dabangg and Ghajini. Yes, few have adjusted it now to Blockbuster status after universally giving them ATBB verdict. We can't take that after so many years past as it degrades the respect film earned at that time in BO. Anyways this is ours list and you have right to differ. Thanks

    2. yes you are right Mr Ankur, but except for dabang,ghajini and d3 all are Masterpiece and They desreved, May be after sometimes they will degrade D3 also.

    3. Ghajini was a good film and deserved the money it earned.
      IMDb: 7.3
      Metascore : 69
      Average critic rating: 3.5/5
      Don't speak without knowing.

  3. @@Arvind Verma
    Krrish 3 hai list me

    Ek Tha Tiger hai list me

    yeh woh list hai jo
    clean All Time Blockbuster hai

    aisi nahi
    jo kahi blockbuster hai
    kisi site par
    all time blockbuster

  4. Wah yaar ankur kamal karte ho perfect list.keep it upp@@

  5. Chennai exp. Is all time blockbuster in mostlg sites including taran adarsh but addatoday i can't understand ur criteria

  6. Mr.amitabh bachhan hase only one atbb named sholay which also a multistarrer movie.amazing

  7. Some more movies deserve to enters in this list but unfortunately they fails to enters it.well i think that this list of addatoday is perfect & thnks to mr baruah to prepare it for us.

  8. If you have medicine of headache, so you watch Chennai Express...super flop movie....if it would be not came in eid, it would be became most disaster of all time.......

    1. @vishal yes you are very right bro...chennai express is a nonsense film... if it is called an all time blockbuster then bollywood should leave this ATBB status forever.

  9. Any person who tell us that ce is a headache than i think that he should urgent need a pshychiatrist.his mental level not normal.a movie who breaks many record and all time highest grosser.u told that headache.either lots of pupils who watched ce mental or u are mental.decide it plz.

  10. Dabanng very rightly deserves to b atbb coz it is amongst the most entertaining movies of all time and it collected huge in jus 1400 screens!! CE was good too but certainly not amongst the most entertaining and touch n go to be called atbb!! .. dabanng was universally accepted as atbb back then coz of its super craze n huge business with so less screens n much lesser ticket prices!! Salman now has 5 atbb if we include kkhh too!! The most by any star!!

  11. Respected moviefan77 i completlely agree with u about dabangg but about kkhh not agree b'cause kkhh is compeletly srk movie & slmn play wiyh in a guest slman have only 4 atbb

  12. Chennai express is not all time blockbuster as it is not accepted universally as atbb it's superbb movie by srk and it's blockbuster as mentioned in many sites

  13. Yeh hui baat
