Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion has emerged the biggest Hindi blockbuster this century as it became a bigger blockbuster than Gadar Ek Prem Katha (2001). Bahubali 2 has notched up 5.21 crore footfalls in Hindi in five weeks beating Gadar Ek Prem Katha which was 5.06 crore. These two films stand head and shoulders above the rest this century with both topping 5 crore footfalls. The others lag well behind with Dangal on 3.61 crore, Bajrangi Bhaijaan on 3.54 crore and PK on 3.50 crore. Bahubali 2 in Hindi is not the biggest blockbuster ever as Hum Aapke Hain Kaun had 7.40 crore footfalls in 1994 and there will probably be 8-10 other films topping 5 crore footfalls.

Basically Bahubali 2 (Hindi) is the biggest blockbuster this century and the second biggest blockbuster in the last 25 years after Hum Aapke Hain Kaun. In terms of all time it is probably in the Hindi top ten or at least very close to the top ten. The biggest achievement by Bahubali 2 (Hindi) is that 5 crore footfalls have come after 16 years and it looked as if it would never happen because films were struggling to even get close to 4 crore. This film has shown that blockbusters of epic proportions that can compete with legendary blockbusters are still possible. We were in a period that records were being broken every year or two but Bahubali 2 will change this as when in history a film like this has come then records have stuck for sometime. The hope will be that it does not take another 16 years to have a blockbuster of this level. The biggest Hindi blockbusters of the last 25 years with the adjusted nett gross (the older films are adjusted for 2016 levels as there is no Average Ticket Price for 2017 yet) are as follows.

  1. Hum Aapke Hain Kaun - 7,05,00,00,000
  2. Bahubali 2 - 5,04,00,00,000 apprx (40 Days)
  3. Gadar Ek Prem Katha - 4,82,00,00,000
  4. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge - 4,58,00,00,000
  5. Raja Hindustani - 3,90,00,00,000

Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (all languages) has close to 10 crore footfalls across India which is more than Hum Aapke Hain Kaun though its in four languages compared to the one of Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and even if we add Hum Aapke Hain Kaun in Telugu then Bahubali 2 (all languages) still remains well ahead.

If we take the 10 crore footfalls it still probably is not the biggest blockbuster ever in India as Mother India (1957), Mughal E Azam (1960) and Sholay (1975) will have more footfalls than Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and at least one if not all three will be more than 10 crore and they were just one format films.

Who care for this biased site homemade theory of calculating FFs...
Till 2nd week Dangal FFs was 3.08 Cr , Gross was less than Sultan means approx. 417 cr (max) after that it has collected around 79 Cr with just 53 lakhs FFs that too when rates was reduce after 1st January'2017...

Don't be surprised if in future Dangal makers claim 4 cr FFs & BOI automatically increase FFs of their favorites stars (Name : ye public hai ye sab janti hai).......

Bahubali deserves its success. We must remember its a hindi dubbed film which has given in such earth shattering numbers on a non holiday release, a trend which is unlikely to be repeated any time soon. Thugs of hindostan is the nearest contender as of now to break this, if bhansali salman colloborate for an epic, then too, this record can be passed.
