(2001-10) so now included in This List of Bollywood's All-time blockbusters.

List of Bollywood's Top Ten All-time Blockbuster
Question:-Why Your Alltime Blockbusters
listdoes not include films
like Krissh, Rab Ne Bana di Jodi, Ghajini and
Dabangg which are amoung Biggest grossers of all time? (according to many sources of current electronic media)
Answer :-Above mentioned films are not
yet included in this list of Bollywood'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 Bollywood Cinema. Movie 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' and RNBDJ movie yet and it has
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 many 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 All time bollywood Blockbusters ....
This movie remains the Biggest Alltime
Blockbuster of Bollywood cinema because the amount of impact it
had on Indian audience can't be matched by any other movie till
date. Inflation Adjusted earnings(probably more than 600 crore rupees)
of this movie also seems too high to cross by today's movies. Each
and every dialogue of this movie became popular.
