Biggest Bollywood Hits of 2017
2017 has been a mixed year for Bollywood. On one hand, the big guns have been mostly performing well at the box office but not receiving critical acclaim. And on the other hand, offbeat movie slike Hindi Medium, Bariely ki Barfi, and Subh Mangal Savdhan have proved to be a positive sign for parallel and intellectual cinema rising steadily in the country. The moviegoers also seem to be preferring unique and out of the box stories over the repetitive mainstream masala.
