Which are biggest period films of Bollywood ? Will Padmavat and ToH join list of biggest movies in this genre ?

+2 votes
Mughale-e-Ajam / Gadar are Biggest movie in this genre which comes first in mind. Lagaan had got huge appreciation and decent BO success.

I think only ATBB movies in this genre are Mughal-e-Aajam and Gadar (Correct me if I'm wrong).

Recent successful period movies are Bajirao Mastani, Jodha Akbar, Devdas, but there are also quite a lot of flop/unsuccessful movies e.g. Tubelight, MohejoDaro, Raabta, Veer, Asoka, 1947 Earth, Mangal Pandey, which stars big superstars and directos.

Looks like there is big possibility to go wrong in this genre even from very good directors.

Will SLB and Victor join list of successful period film's director with Padmavat and ToH ?

I think thugs of hindostan is most riskiest project because budget is approx 225 cr. But aamir in the movie so "cheete ki chal baaz ki nazar or aamir ki script scene per sandeh nahi karte".

A lot has gone wrong for padmavat. Not sensing good now for the movie with so many cuts and disruptions. Hope toh crosses Lagaan as Aamir’s biggest

I have doubts over Thugs but Padmavati will surely join that list

Nothing justifies the title period movie more than Padman, so you must add it too, and hence Padman is the most accurate to justify it's genre so Padman is the biggest period movie in history of not only Bollywood, but of whole Indian cinema..!!
