Yes 70s was that Decade where mostly movies are HUGE Blockbuster.
From 1940s - 1970s decade in every decade KUMARS & KAPOORS dominated the Bollywood.
1940s - ASHOK KUMAR, PRITHVIRAJ KAPOOR, another KL SAIGAL, Most watched Movie of this decade belong to KUMAR (Kismet)
1950s - DILIP KUMAR, RAJ KAPOOR, another DEV ANAND, most watched movie of decade belong to KUMAR (Mother India) Rajendra Kumar & Raj Kumar.
1960s- Rajendra Kumar, SHAMMI KAPOOR another Sunil dutt, most watched movie of decade belong to KAPOOR & KUMAR (MUGHAL E AZAM)
Then come 70s Decade...
Not only hindi cinema even whole Indian cinema got the 3 BIGGEST star ever,
1) RAJESH KHANNA- first Superstar of Indian cinema (no one can break his 15 HITS record).
2) DHARMENDRA - No one can Break his 96 Success Movies (Average To Atbb) Record. (most Successful actor in History of Indian cinema)
3) AMITABH BACHCHAN - SHOLAY. (these 2 Words is enough)
But still one KUMAR is part of most watched movie of 70s Decade (Sanjeev Kumar) in Sholay.

1980s - KRANTI (again KUMAR and KAPOOR)
