Bheja Fry : Which actor has given maximum consecutive Hits without fail and how much ?
Q : Is there any better technique to gauze the success of movies of different eras, other than adjustment ?
A : Yes, inflation adjustment is arguably flawed technique. We have some alternate ways, but again none is flawless. Instead of comparing Nett earnings using adjustments, we can compare footfalls, this is comparative less flawed method. But again footfall counting is not simple and straightforward method. Another simple technique is relative performance of movie to the highest grossing movies released at that time and retention of that record. For example Three idiots grossed Two times of last highest grosser (Ghajini) and record is still intact. Similarly Sholay made around 5 times of highest grosser of that time(Bobby) and record was intact for 20 years (Till HAHK).
Q : Which actor has given maximum consecutive Hits without fail and how much ?
A : Rajesh Khanna. He delivered 16 consecutive Hits in three years period of 1969 – 1971. This record is still intact and will remain in my opinion.
Q : Aamir looks quite a multitalented guy. Actor, producer, director and singer all in one. Can we figure out similar icon ?
A : Mehmood. He worked successfully as an actor (170+ movies) , Action Director (Ghulam-E-Mustafa), Choreographer (Ganga jamuna, Johny Mera Naam), Director (9 Movies) , Lyricist , Play back singer and producer (5 Movies). He was first producer/direcror who remade his own 1955 Hit movie in 1976.
Q. Looking at track record of Arjun Rampal since DON followed by OSO, Rock on, Raajneeti and Housefull, Can we expect Hit business from We are family ?
A : We are family is women centric movie and its pity to put stake of Arjun Rampal at this movie. Even in case of any other top star presence, Hit business of movie was dubious. Arjun Rampal boxoffice pull can be measured only if he come in solo movie of good commercial elements. We can’t keep any actor on same rank and page after 5-6 multistarrer hits where he was before these movies. But yes, potential of actor after those multistarrers can be measured only if come in similar rock solid entertainer as a solo lead. At the moment we can say, Arjun has positioned better, but how much ? is remained to see until his next solo release.
