THE NEXT LINE: BOX OFFICE ANALYTICS

The Scale:
-3 Disaster, -2 Flop, -1, Below Average., 0 Average, 1 Above Average, 2 Semi Hit, 3 Hit, 4 Super Hit, 5 Blockbuster, 6 ATBB

Reason for choosing the above scale- There should be a central point in any such rating scale- As negative verdicts are not equal to positive verdicts- this is the fairest possible scale (A perfect scale between disaster and Hit- Superhit, BB, and ATBB are bonus verdicts- and desrve this status)

Latest Score: Previous Total (-41)+ Desi Boyz (+1)+Houseful2 (+4)+Rowdy Rathore (+5)+Joker (-2)+OMG (+3)+Khiladi 786(+0)= (-30)

    - 41 ???

    Is this why Akki was nominated as torch bearer of the 2010 winter Olympic Games in Canada?

    I think anyone who does more movies will have less or negative score.

    Very good work Piyush. As Rockie said, those who do more movies will have less score. I think this analysis should end here now.

    It was a good thing to do it for the Khans since there are so many fan wars here and your analysis put things very clearly in front of everybody. But it is not needed for the other actors as 90% of the actors have more flops than hits in their careers.

    BOI verdcits are not right for some Akshay films.
    Ek rishta is above average.Aankhein is semi hit.Garma masala is hit.Tashan is above average.
    So Akshay will get a positive score easily.
    dwnpiyush,Calculate from 2006.Thats where Aamir’s career began in the 2000s.He has only one hit in lagaan before 2006.
    If we count from 2006 Akshay is ahead of every star.
    Thats why I said Akshay is the No1 star since 2007.

    I’m surprised to see Hrithik’s list. Never thought about this earlier but in a career spanning 11 years, he has done only 18 movies!

    dwnpiyush,you are free to do decade wise ranking by following BOI.For me any ranking will start from a particular year.Its Akshay who is ahead of everyone since 2006.

    Great track sheet Piyush! This should stop Akki fanatics from comparing Akshay to SRK.

    And did SV say Akshay is # 1 since 2007? Damm cocaines one hell of a drug! He’s had only one solid hit which was a multistarrer too (Houseful) since 2007 out of the zillion releases.

    SV – How many blockbusters has Akshay given since 2007?

    SRK – OSO, CDI, RNBDJ
    Aamir – Ghajni, 3I
    Salman – Ready, Dabangg

    Since 2007 joker has 17 releases 1 bb 1 super hit, 5 hits.
    SRK has 4 release 3 blockbuster 1 hit
    Aamir has 3 release 2 atbb 1 super hit
    Salman has 13 release 1 atbb 2 BB 1 superhit
    Ajay devgn has 17 release 2 bb 1 superhit 2 hits

    Since 2007 srk/aamir did very less movies with 100% success rate, so it is better to compare with salman, ajay and joker.

    NIce work, but I dont agree with the comments that an actor with more movies will have a more negative score.

    The scale is infact tilted towards giving positive scores .. like where a Disaster gets -3, an ATBB gets +6

    i think ur scoring method is arronous as i stated in the other thread. by this logic priya rajvansh become s a bigger star than hema malini. and perhaps rajeev kapoor a bigger star in 1985 than amitabh bachchan.
