The Agneepath fever is still on, and why not; this film was the first of 2012 to enter the Rs. 100-crore club. The previous entry to this privileged club was Shah Rukh Khan‘s Don 2 which released in late 2011. There was just a gap of one month between the release of Don 2 and Agneepath. So, was the audience missing the action?

Yes!

Action seems to be Bollywood’s current mantra to success.

From Salman Khan’s Bodyguard to Shah Rukh Khan’s Don 2, most of the films that made it to the 100 crore club are action films. In fact, of the 10 films that have crossed this mark so far, 7 belong to action genre.

The action genre dominated Bollywood in the ‘70s and ‘80s, when megastar Amitabh Bachchan ruled the box-office with his ‘angry young man’ image. Interestingly, the latest two films (Don 2 and Agneepath) that made it to the 100-crore club connect to Bachchan.

Don 2 was sequel of Don (2006) which was actually a remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s Don (1978), and Agneepath was a remake of Bachchan’s 1990 film of the same title.

  1. Wanted, Ready, Dabangg and Bodyguard are nothing like Bachchan’s films. Don2 and ra-one also are not like his films ( and they are totally rejected by the audience). So, I don’t agree with this writer.

  2. Sir. Plz tell what is your business prediction for Ek Tha Tiger. Will it be nearby to 3 idiots total collections… Sir plz plz reply.,

  3. Guys, SRK, Salman, Aamir & Hrithik are much bigger stars than Amitabh Bacchan. During his time the only means of entertainment was Movies and there were no TV Channels, Internet, Piracy, etc. I wont think Amitabh could have survive the competition of these actors if he was in their age group today!

  4. bete timewatch, amitabh abhi rock kar rahe hai. In near to 70 yrs age he is still popular, ye sare es age tak aate aate pata bhi nahi chalega kaha gaye. pahle log bhi etne nahi the aaj ki population or income level us time se kahi aage hai esliye ye etna kama rahe hai.

  5. TimeWatch,
    Agar amitabh ke zamane me itne multiplex hote na toh amitabh hi flop film bhi 150 cr ka business karti. Actually Amitabh is bigger than srk+salman+aamir+hrithik putting all together. Yeh sab multiplex super star hai. Inki films sirf 3 din business karti hai aur monday ko sab cinema hall khali. aur yeh sab saal me 1-2 films karte hai isliye log dekhne jate hai. amitabh ki saal me 3-4 films release hoti thi. India me amitabh se bada superstar na hua hai aur na kabhi hoga.

  6. I hav been watching indian movies for over 60 yrs remake of big b movies were very poor repres. Big b is grt actor salman khan my fav his movies tend to make u forget ur troubles for a good relax his movies stimes are diff but i love them all

  7. 100 crore club just started recently and it has many reasons for that not because they are following Amitabh Bachan. By the way don 2 is a super action movie. dont just write articles to please yourself.

  8. i like salman and salman movies. he is the best human in bollybood. i like salman khan very much.
    my dream is to talk to salman’s.

  9. I TOTALY AGREE WITH ARVIND,
    IN 80’S TICKET PRICE WAS RS 10-15 , NOW RS150-200 SO MR. BACHCHAN IS THE SHAHENSHAH OF BOLLYWOOD!
