Akshay Kumar’s Sooryavanshi was released in November 2021 and brought audiences back to theaters in a big way. Since then, 18 months have passed and only 10 Bollywood movies have marked a century or more. 2 of them released in 2021 [Sooryavanshi, This Is 83]5 arriving in 2022 [Brahmastra, The Kashmir Files, Drishyam 2, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Gangubai Kathiawadi] then 3 went ahead 100 crores score in 2023 [Pathaan, Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan]. Now add the 11th to the list, The Kerala Story.
It’s remarkable how the film has managed to carve out a spot on this very short list, each of which is actually a star-studded affair with the majority releasing during or around the holidays. While Shah Rukh Khan, Ranbir Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Alia Bhatt, Salman Khan and Ranveer Singh have run the show all this time, the only ones who have braved their way are Anupam Kher. [The Kashmir Files] and now Adah Sharma [The Kerala Story].
Here is the list of these 11 films and their lifetime scores:
- Pathan- 545 crores
- Brahmastra- 264 crores
- The Kashmir Files – 253 crores
- Drishyam 2 – 241 crores
- Sooryavanshi- 197 million rupees
- Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 – 186 million
- Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar – 147,000,000,000
- Gangubai Kathiawadi – 129.10 crore
- The History of Kerala – 112.92 crore (9 days, still playing)
- Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan – 110 crores (still playing)
- It’s 83 – 109.02 crores
As can be seen, Pathaan leads from afar, and then there are three double centuries [Brahmastra, The Kashmir Files, Drishyam 2]. Soon The Kerala Story will also join this elite list of 200 crore club incoming. How is it possible? Well, in just 9 days it’s already the 9th highest grossing movie since the pandemic and with each passing week it will continue to climb the list. While Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar would be history by Tuesday, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Sooryavanshi would also crossover.
The real challenge would be to top Drishyam 2 and The Kashmir Files, although that would require some special effort. The next few days would be really interesting for box office tabulation.
Note: Box office figures are based on estimates and various sources. Figures have not been independently verified by Koimoi.
