List of Indian Film Industry's Top Ten All-time Blockbuster
Continued.. Below is the List of Indian Film Industry's top ten All-time biggest blockbusters in past 100 years of Hindi Cinema :--
Question:-Why Your Alltime Blockbusters
listdoes not include films
like , yeh jawani hai diwani, Ek Tha Tiger , Dabangg, Dabangg2, Ghajini, Don- 2 and Bodyguard which are amoung Biggest grossers of all time? (according to many "reliable" sources of current electronic media)
Answer :-Above mentioned films are not
yet included in this list of Indian Film Industry's biggest Alltime Blockbusters
because apart from earnings there are various factors which should
be considered in naming any film ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER of the great
Indian Indian Film Industry. Movies should have Long lasting IMPACT on
masses and mindsets of people. Just a simple question may answer
this..Can you think of any of your friends, colleagues or relatives
who have not seen the movies SHOLAY and DDLJ?
Hard to find..right? still many people (Middle aged and elder generation)
have not seen 'Dabangg 2' and 'ek tha tiger ' movie yet and these films have
not become topic of serious discussions amoung all generations...
Sholay and DDLJ released in single screen days and no Multiplex
boom was there, rates of tickets were one fifth of today's rates(This
is the reason why even after running housefull for several months their
total grossed amount is lesser than today's collections), still
some of those movies had big Impact and became hugely popular hence
qualify for our list of Greatest All time Indian Film Industry Blockbusters in past 100 years of Hindi cinema in India....
This movie remains the Biggest Alltime
Blockbuster of Indian Film Industry cinema because the amount of impact it

and every dialogue of this movie became popular.
