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)

akki career

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

hrithik career

Latest Score: (13) + Agneepath (+4) =17

ajay career

Latest Score: (-40) +Rascals (-2) + Tezz (-3) +Bol Bachchan (+3)+ Son of Sardar (+3)= (-39)

Latest Scores: Akshay Kumar (-30), Hrithik Roshan (17), Ajay Devgan (-39)

    On an all career scale like this, getting a positive score in itself is a big achievement- A big star like Akki is getting a score of -41 (that too when all his unknown movies have been rated as flops- and not as disaster)

    I think if a similar list is made for huge stars like even Dharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan- they might go into negative (the longer the career- the tougher it is to get a positive score)

    That’s why it is extremely childish of some mis-informed fans to compare their fac star to one or all of the Khans… The Khans are way ahead… in all departments in my opinion- in terms of Box office certainly- according to FACTS

    Post 2000- the period in which Akki is supposed to be better than Salman- even there Salman has a better score-

    And u think akki had better last decade is just supposed?? LMAO

    Akki 2007 alone = sallu’s 00′s

    Akki one year

    Welcome Blockbsuter
    Hey baby Superhit
    Bhool bhulaiya Superhit
    Namaste london HIT

    Sall ten years
    Partner
    Mujhse shaadi karogi
    Wanted

    Oops he no third HIT as one of the leads or the lead

    this means akki’s one year was better than sallu’s whole decade

    Haye zor ka jhatka haye zoron se laga Disasters ban gayin Umer Qaid ki saza yeh hai sallu flops ka pyaasa isko star na bolo Khuda ka wasta

    anyways

    Aaichya gaavat …. Akki score is -41.
    I think anyone who does more movies will have less or negative score.

  4. Shalu said:

    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.

  5. dwnpiyush said:

    @ Shalu I admit- as I said- the longer the career- the tougher it is to get a positive score- Rockie bhai is spot on-
    This list I made just to put things in perspective- some fans of a certain actor here are so blinded by their love for their star- that they ignore the facts-
    Anyways- this is done and dusted- no more lists from me- hopefully a recalling post soon…

  6. dwnpiyush said:

    @ Prateek- till 1995 they are all there on BOI- even pre 1995 the top hits are listed- some old, unknown ones I assigned as flops (they might have been disasters)- but have kept the same heuristics for all the lists-

  7. SV said:

    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.

  8. Shalu said:

    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!

  9. dwnpiyush said:

    @SV I gave my version- you all are free to do your own counting- count only for 2007 if you guys want… 3/4 disputable verdicts – wont matter for as I said – I counted all unknown movies as flops- some of them might have been disasters- plus as I have followed the same source for all the lists- so that should not a point of contention…

    @Shalu- Ya- It is baffling actually- Hrithik should have been at par with the Khans- if not ahead- the kind of talent he has- doing such few movies wont help him- looking ahead- there is just agneepath and krish 2 announced as of now-

  10. SV said:

    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.

  11. Fasel said:

    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.

  12. Fasel said:

    SV – How many blockbusters has Akshay given since 2007?

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

  13. ranju said:

    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.

    @amin Thanks man… but these are not my verdicts- I just put them in a chart- these are verdicts by boxofficeindia.com-
    Not some lalalandboxoffice.com or something created out of my imagination- I don’t have the capacity or the authority or the capability or the imagination to create verdicts out of thin air…

  15. amin786 said:

    piyush – its ok bro if there not your verdicts i agree with these verdicts i dont see any mistake good you posted them :)

  16. dwnpiyush said:

    For all new members and for TASHAN

    Kuch yaad dilaana hai… all verdicts from BOI… for movies that are not listed on BOI top 20 of the year- considered flops- In case of ambiguous verdicts- higher verdict allotted

    Akshay Kumar -41 + (0)= -41 after Desi Boys (considering it an AVERAGE affair- which is being way too kind)

  17. Rosh said:

    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.
