Highest Grossing Bollywood (Hindi) Movies of 2018. October Update!

2018 has been one of the best year for Bollywood so far in recent years. In first nine months we have seen 17 successful films which is a great turn out. Atleast 2018 is far far better than 2017. In addition there is 5 big Hollywood Hits in this year so far. Still, big 3 months are left and we expect more Hits to unfold.

Year 2018 saw 5 Blockbusters, 2 Super Hits, 7 Hits, 2 Semi Hits and 1 Above Average in first 9 months. Year also had the two 300 crore films in Padmaavat and Sanju, one of which is a Super Hit and other one being Blockbuster at box office. Had Padmaavat cost be on industry standard then it would have also attained Blockbuster status.

Good news is Bollywood also saw pure Blockbusters in Baaghi 2, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Raazi and Stree. These films also manage to sneak into 100 crore club. Baaghi 2 went one step ahead to join 150 crore club.

Apart from Padmaavat, year saw Satyameva Jayate joining the Super Hit list.

Raid joined 100 crore list and emerged as a Hit. Veere Di Wedding, Dhadak, Sui Dhaaga*, Parmanu, 102 Not Out, Hichki joined Raid in Hit list. 

Race 3 and Gold emerged as a Semi Hit. PadMan which received excellent word of mouth from audiences and even critics and has emerged as Above Average.


Yes, how can we forget about the 'Flop' galore at box office. This has been again a norm for 2018 as like past years. Aiyaary, Kaalakaandi, Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se, Fanney Khan, Paltan, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3, Genius, Laila Majnu, Bhavesh Joshi Super Hero are some of the big disappointments of the year and hence disasters. Just imagine, Kaalkaandi distributor share is approx 2.5 crores and they even fail to cover the marketing cost. Forget about the budget. 

'Missing' was such an epic disaster that film failed to touch even 1 crore nett in India and it was missing from screening after the first day itself as shows got cancelled. Film fail to collect even the parking fees of the cinema halls.

Below are the top grossing movies of the year. Hollywood/Regional films which have done significant business in India are also included in the list!

  1. I think padmavati is a blockbuster because of the price sold to distributors. An example if the film has been sold for a national distribution price of 120 cr then at 280+cr film should be a blockbuster.plus overseas status is All time blockbuster

    1. I second that. Padmaavat is a true blockbuster. SKTKS is only a super hit.

  3. Padmavat net collection 285 crore. Race 3 at max is average. If it is semi hit at 166 crore then Dilwale should be clean hit at 140 crore released almost 3 years back.
