Bollywood Box Office Mid-Year Report 2024: Kalki 2898 AD, Munjya Shine as Blockbusters; BMCM Flops

Kalki 2898 AD Box Office

Bollywood Box Office 2024 to Date: After going through some dry patches in the journey, Bollywood is gaining momentum with films like Kalki 2898 AD and Munjya drawing impressive crowds to theaters.



Bollywood Box Office Mid-Year Report 2024: As 2024 began, the Hindi film industry faced a kind of uncertainty, despite achieving a record box office collection of Rs 12,200 crore last year in 2023. This was mainly due to theater attendance remaining significantly lower than pre-pandemic levels.

Looking at the year’s first half data, exhibitors across the country had high hopes for 3 big-budget films, namely Fighter, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, and Maidaan. Fighter, starring Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone, began the year quite unexpectedly. However, Akshay Kumar’s BMCM and Ajay Devgn’s Maidaan opened with just Rs 15.5 crore and Rs 7 crore, respectively.


Fighter Hrithik Roshan, Deepika Padukone Rs 199.45 Cr.
Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya Shahid Kapoor, Kriti Sanon Rs 80.88 Cr.
Article 370 Yami Gautam Dhar and Priyamani Rs 82.37 Cr.
Shaitaan Ajay Devgn, Jyothika, R Madhavan Rs 149.49 Cr.
Madgaon Express Divyenndu, Pratik Gandhi, Avinash Tiwary, Nora Fatehi Rs 38.47 Cr.
Crew Tabu, Kareena Kapoor, Kriti Sanon Rs 89.92 Cr.
Srikanth Rajkummar Rao Rs 50.05 Cr.
Munjya Sharvari, Abhay Verma, Mona Singh Rs 100.45 Cr.
Laapataa Ladies Nitanshi Goel, Pratibha Ranta, Sparsh Shrivastava, Chhaya Kadam, Ravi Kishan Rs 20.24 Cr



These were some disappointing returns for films of such scale and featuring top-tier actors.

As compared to last year’s blockbuster films like Pathaan, Jawan, Gadar 2, and Animal, the major Bollywood movies of 2024 have not been as successful as expected.

But several mid-budget films like Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya, Crew, Shaitaan, Munjya, and Article 370 have surprisingly performed well at the box office.

Their unexpected success is mainly due to positive social media buzz, captivating content, and some great marketing.

Now, take a look at the South Indian cinema which has made a serious comeback, dominating the Indian box office once again. For example, Nag Ashwin’s Telugu film Kalki 2898 AD, starring Kamal Haasan, Amitabh

Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, and Prabhas, has its record-breaking global opening of Rs 191.5 crore.It’s time to review Bollywood’s major successes and disappointments in 2024 so far:
