was the biggest blockbuster, doing a combined business (from all sources) of a little over Rs. 100 crore. Golmaal 3 was the next biggest hit, followed by Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai and Raajneeti. Two small, non-star cast films – Peepli Live and Love Sex Aur Dhokha – doubled the investments made in them, putting to shame several big-budget and star-studded fares like Kites, Action Replayy, Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey, Guzaarish, Raavan and Veer. There were other debacles too, just like there were other success stories.

Given the low success ratio (a little over 7%), the industry suffered a net loss of around Rs. 475 crore (Rs. 4750 million) during the year. The break-up: profits in successful films were to the tune of Rs. 125 crore; losses in flop films were in the region of Rs. 600 crore!
