  1. One more movie that should have been under average is Aarakshan .. Anyways quite a good list.

  2. There is absolutely no doubt that Salman Khan is #1, overtaking Aamir & SRK. Come on, two of the biggest hits of the year, plus, the biggest hit of last year.

    Salman, you rock bro, let’s hope 2012 is equally or better than 2011.

  3. Nice article…Yakuza bro tell me is Bodyguard is All time blockbuster or not? and tell me whats the position od Ra.One and Don.2 does these 2 movies earn some profit or not?

  4. Yakuza Bhai,you said that according to you ZNMD is one of the biggest hits of the year. Then what do you have to say about Komal Nahta’s verdict where he rates ZNMD below Double Dhamaal and Ra.One? Secondly,what yardstick do u use to give verdicts. And what’s the verdict for ZNMD according to you?

    • Komal Nahta methodology is always very strict. He uses simple cost VS revenue model .. which is correct in my opinion for business prospective. But in my books ZNMD is big Hit. Will publish my year end report card in next post.

      • Well frankly,i’m quite pissed off by all these senseless verdicts like ATBB,BB,Semi Hit etc. How is a Super-Hit different from a Blockbuster(BOI verdicts) and how is a Semi-Hit supposed to be different from Above Average? For me its all about a movie being successful and the extent to which its successful. And going by that yardstick i think Komal Nahta’a verdicts are spot on on most occasions(except a few like Ra.One which i feel is strictly Average). Meaningless verdicts like Semi Hit,Above Average etc never used to exist before BOI came into the picture. From the general audience’s perspective its all about a movie being a HIT,FLOP or Average.

  5. Yakuza what’s ur final verdict for ZNMD? Do u too call it AVERAGE? Or do u call it a HIT(like most other analysts)

  6. Also in your post, can you also add, in your opinion, the top actors and actresses of 2011?!?

  7. Dear Yakuza,
    whats the verdict of Buddha hoga tera baap and Arakshan.
