A Great Year For Bollywood..

Well, at last, my exams have finished and I am FREEEE !!! Holy cow, it feels so great.

A few days, I wrote a post noting down my 5 gems of Bollywood. I was thinking about it and I just realized, it's been a wonderful year for the industry ! They've had a hit in every month ! Just see the following table

APRIL-Lucky and Waqt, also Kaal as it opened in the last week of July
MAY - Kaal might be taken, but if you don't want it, there's still Kajra Re! Bunty Aur Babli ! ALSO, biggest hit of the year, KYA KOOL HAI HUM !
JUNE- Media might have rubbished it, but Paheli was a moderate success. But, if you don't want to accept it, there's always Sarkar (released on June 30th)
JULY - Dus(though it was an awful film), Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya
AUGUST- Mangal Pandey is turning out to be big, Barsaat also had good collections.
SEPTEMPER - No Entry is having good collections as well! I'm pretty sure "Salaam Namaste" will do well !

So, what an year for Bollywood !. Let's breakdown the genres of the hit movies :
Page 3 - Drama/Urban
Black - Drama
Zeher - Action/Romance
Lucky - Romance/Drama
Waqt - Family/Romance/Comedy
Kaal - Action/Horror
Bunty Aur Babli - Comedy/ Romance
Kya Kool Hai Hum - Comedy
Paheli - Drama/Romance
Sarkar - Gangster/Action
Dus - Action
Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya - Comedy/Romance
Mangal Pandey - Historical/Drama/Romance
Barsaat - Romance
No Entry - Comedy

It seems Comedy films are ruling the roosts here ! Throw in some romance and a good script and you should get a good film. But take care to market it well.
