Bollywood in 2016 - A Brief Review

If you thought 2016 was just like any other year when Bollywood had its share of several hits, more failures, some experimental cinema and a few blockbusters, you aren’t wrong. But for an audience like me, something caught the eye which was beyond the content we saw on screen, there was something more that happened at the cinemas. While the Khans ruled, the Kapoors walked with much credit and the female-centric films saw a rise, a handful of second line of actors left a deeper impression in our minds that is still echoing through their power-packed performances, even as we are ready to close the year.

2016 gave us happy hits like Neerja, Kapoor & Sons, Pink and Dangal. All these films sailed through tough box office faceoffs by holding on to its supporting actors. Without them, these flicks wouldn’t have managed to stay put through the two-and-a-half hours of movietime.

Here, we list down and rewind all those movies which not only did best on the Box office but also broke records and hearts of the millions on fans.

Strnagely you will not find Dangal in the list since it came to the box office towards the end of the year and is already grossing at around Rs. 284 Crores well on its way to become the highest grossing movie in the histroy of Indian cinema

Dangal has just started its journey and it has grossed more than Rs 106 cr in its first three days and there is a chance that it may turn out to be the most commercially successful film ever.
