Item song has comeback in a big way since the last 3 years, item song has become instrumental towards the buzz hype generated for a movie, and movies with item song has been doing the most major businesses. These are the selection choices which were the biggest item song hits of those movies and vote for your favorite or rank them in order of your liking.

I still don’t understand the status given by BOI where the the movie earned quite big worldwide for its time, despite the fact it is a hit with taran adarsh, vinod Mirani. One reason I think this to be case …
Joker look’s like it wouldn’t need to do to much record breaking business just to get a hit tag, the selling cost is already 40 crore, so that would include many different rights, like sattelite rights, music rights, thearetical rights …
There are a lot of difference between the 2 movies. Both movies were huge grosser and love by so many people, but there are a lot of differences when we consider the two. First of all, I would list the differences.
Rowdy Rathore had no recognized faces. For example, the comedian side kick is unknown guy, villain, never seen him before in any hindi movies apart from Rowdy Rathore. Dabangg had plenty of known faces, like Sonu Sood, Om Puri, yesteryear stars Vinod Khanna and Dimple Kapadia, and former hero arbaaz khan, also Mahesh manjekar as addition. Sonakshri in RR is still a newcomer and not an established actress like Katrina Kaif ect.
Dabangg’s Big hit song as well as item number is Muni Badaam Hui, starring Malaika Arora Khan who had plenty of superhit item songs, Rowdy’s Rathore’s biggest hit song which is an Item number was Chinta ta Chita Chita, picturised solely on Akki. Also 2nd biggest Pritam pyare had unknown faces.
Dabangg was released on holiday with 3 clear weeks and made a total collection of 141 crore, Rowdy Rathore released on non holiday is a blockbuster crossing 130 crores, and will have a bigger distribution share compare to Dabangg.
He is mainly known today for his comedy but there are numerous movies I liked that he was good in angry emotional intense roles, these are my rank in order.
1. Hatya the Murder (Never gets mentioned in the list …
I have become a big fan of Spain ever since 2002 world cup and always wanted them to achieve at a big tournament. It was pleasure to see how they totally outclassed the strong and tough Italians at the final …
It’s goodbye to laughter and slapstick for Akshay Kumar. Though he tasted success with his laugh fest ‘Housefull 2‘ earlier this year, he doesn’t seem to have any intention whatsoever to get into a familiar zone for quite some time …
That is strange. The movie earned 15 crores 3rd week but that number is not shown as they usually update it every Wednesday, so what are they trying to do? report less figures for Rowdy Rathore so they can make …
I read someone say Sanjay Dutt started the trend of martial arts karate in indian cinema, lol, and he is supposedly performed dangerous stunts, that’s if there are any proofs of them, and he is supposedly the better than sunny deol, akshay kumar, suniel shetty, ajay devgan, lets have a look of these supposed claims.
Thanedaar – semi hit
Khal Nayak – Hit – Jackie shroff was also a hero in the movie who kicked his butt.
Here is my list of current top 6 superstar actors based on only this decade, this is a non bias analysis and it will take into account only this decade and not last decade, feel free to disagree, but this my ranking opinion.
1. Salman Khan – He has had a big turn around, after a poor last decade, he has given 3 back to back blockbusters with 1 being ATBB and still has movies lined up that is likely to do well and keeping him in No.1 position if his next movies manages a blockbuster earning.
2. After starting of this decade with a hit Houseful, akki’s luck run out when Khatta meetha underperformed at the BO, action replay flopped and TMK didn’t perform as expected, with an average 2010, then in 2011, things did not go as well since the TMK effect, he gave a good performance in Patiala house and Desi Boyz, but none set the cash register ringing. He bounced back humonglously in 2012 after giving 2 back to back 100crore grossers in 2 different genres, one full on comedy, with another being blockbuster action thriller, both seen as akshay kumar show, and now he’s back in the top3 actors.
3. It would be injustice if I didn’t include Ajay Devgan in the top 3, he has had a golden period this decade, by giving 2 blockbusters, 1 Superhit and 1 hit, he has had a growth of fan following and looks to be a good force at the Box Office
There has been a lot of comments made and ignorance shown that akki hasn’t set any trend in anything and there hasn’t been a followers from it, let me get this straight, there has been many unique trends set by akki, some of them impossible to follow and some of them did set a trend that even big names srk had followed.
akki was the 1st first to set a trend in stunt related action scenes with heavy karate, thai boxing and since then there many actors tried to follow this trend, most of them use doubles and claim to have done their own stunts, but since akki started the trend it has inspired new actors like Vidyut Jamwal, to some extent hirthik roshan.
Hollywood/bollywood celebrities. Many have forgotten to mention this major trend, is having established american singers, wrestlers and actors in a bollywood movie. Akki started this trend well back in 1996 when he had professional wrestler Brian Lee aka Undertaker and crush in a bollywood movie, this movie did major business for its time and started the collaboration of hollywood celebs in a bollywood movie.This was then repeated with appearance of one of the biggest rapstars Snoop Dogg in Singh Is Kingh, Kylie Minogue in Blue and sylveter stallone, Denise Richards and so on. Srk then followed this trend by bringing in Big rap superstar Akon to feature in RaOne which was a successful collaboration. This is a major trend that needs to be remembered, and it has started the trend of trying to get more foreign actors acting or singing in bollywood movie.
When akki started to do comedy and gain major success, Ajay Devgan followed a similar path to get high box office revenues, the first ever Box Office success sequel was Phir Hera Pheri and this started the wave of sequels that, stars doing sequels to revive their careers, not saying akki started the trend of making sequel as that was started in Nagina and Nigahean, but i mean from Box Office point of view, PHP was major sequel hit and 1st one also.
Agneepath the remake of the old classic iconic BigB movie that came out in the 90s but sadly it tanked at the box office as BigB was in rough phase post 84, and now they decided to remake the movie, which I thought wasn’t bad but slightly changed to cater for today’s audience. Who do you think gave the best performance out the of the three mentioned actors in the movie.
My Rating in order
Rishi Kapoor – He was the surprise package in the movie, the movie was heavily promoted with Dutt and Roshan in mind, but he came up with the best performance, I always thought he was a good actor was typcast in the romantic hero playing sidekick to heroines in his movies before. 9.5/10
Sanjay Dutt – This man was very good and very menacing and way more stronger than hrithik, he had that cold blooded appearance and he lived up to the character of the tough cold blood villain. He is like the hero in the movie matching and being stronger than the hero of the movie. 8/10
Wasn’t it supposed to be in the 35 crore plus range from overseas, but the figure is doubled, what happened? Did the ticket price double in overseas or something? That also would make housefull 2 a blockbuster in the overseas …
#etcUpdate Akshay Kumar, Himesh Reshammiya starrer #Khiladi786 release has reportedly been post-poned to 7 December.
So this looks it has been delayed even further, it’s not bad if you take into account it would avoid clash with 2 big movies …
