    These figures seem bloated to me: I don’t believe that Jodha-Akbar and SeI have 60 and 50 crore budgets, respectively. If they really are budgeted at those amounts, I believe the business decision was an unwise one.

    No Om Shanti Om? …but the most grievous ommission is the HR movie….Bhagwan ka screenplay bhi ajeeb hain..

    Saanwaria is 75 cr! That seems a little bit too much to be true, considering his cast must be less then 10 cr at max.

    Noticeable missing films: TZP, OSO, and Madhuri’s return film. And ofcourse not much is known about the latter half of 2007, and I’m sure there will be other big films aside from these 20.

    2007 > 2006? LOL, when Sunil Dharshan’s film has to be added to the list, says it all IMO…

    I think the budgets are way over the top for majority of them. My idea:

    1)Guru 16 crores(not 20 crores)
    2)SeI 35 crores(50)
    3)Nishabd 10 crores(15)
    4)Metro 15 crores(20)
    5)Shootout at Lokhandwala 25(30)
    6)Tara Rum Pum 18-20 crores(25)
    7)Apne 25 crores(35)
    8)Welcome 30 crores(35)
    9)Jhoom Barabar Jhoom 20-22 crores(30)
    10)Jodha Akbar 45 crores(60)
    11)Saawariyan 45 crores(75)

    Jodha Akbar and Saawariyan will be the two biggest movies for 2007!!!
