2023 is over and as we set foot into 2024, which is promising for big screen releases, Bollywood Hungama takes a look at some of the 2023 releases that made an impact. However, unlike conventional box office reports, we analyze the films from the point of view of Aamir Khan's box office formula to understand which of the releases were highly successful.

For the uninitiated, back in 2013, the Aamir Khan starrer dhoom 3 hit the screens, while the film itself went on to create box office collection records, Aamir had come up with a different theory to measure the success of a film. According to Aamir Khan, β€œTo measure the success of a film, you need to look at the weekend numbers and compare them with the total collection. As 3 idiots made Rs. 40 crores over the weekend and the total business was Rs. 202 crores, so the weekend is multiplied by 5, it is the performance of the film that is very good. This shows that people have gone again and again to see the film. Jo film Teen din mein 100 crore karein aur total mein 200 crore karein, then that film is not good.”

In this report, while comparing the quality of films, we introduced a metric – weekend to lifetime for the 100 crore club. According to this comparison, a higher multiple indicates strong content and therefore longevity in theaters, which in turn means that visits will be attracted in the following weeks.

At the top spot with the highest weekend-to-life multiple is Vidhu Vinod Chopra's film 12.th Flop starring Vikrant Massey. With a multiple of 8.09, the film has become the most successful release of 2023. It is closely followed by releases such as The history of Kerala with a multiple of 6.82. Rounding out the top 5 movies with the highest weekend-to-lifetime multiple are Zara HatkeZara Bachke and Gadar 2 which present a multiple of 3.90 each.

It's no surprise that big-ticket releases like Sam Bahadur 3.84, OMG 2 3.48, Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani 3.35, Salaar 2.80 and Animal 2.75, reach the Top 10 of films with the highest weekend multiple in a lifetime. However, unlike previous releases, it is the biggest earner of the year. Shah Rukh Khan starrer jawan features 12th listed with a multiple of 2.25 while Pathan manages a multiple of 1.93.
