  1. Film Awara of RajKapoor should also be added as it was the first film became popular outside india sp. in
    USSR.

    • I have a great respect for Raj kapoor and Mera Naam Joker, its a masterpiece from the master but unfortunately it was a big flop in India..

  2. DDLJ ( Dil wale dulahaniya le jayege) should also be added in this list as it ran in the theatre over a decade.

    • Nice observation sir, but we are listing movies on the basis of money that they have collected over the time..
      DDLJ is the longest running movie in Indian Cinema but still it is not the biggest grosser. 3 idiots is the biggest grosser is India with 202 crore and Ek tha Tiger is just behind.. Lets wait and watch..

        • Inflation is not considered here. We have compiled the list on the basis of collections only…
          Thanks for the observations and stay updated to get the list of Blockbuster list with inflation adjusted figures…

          Thanks for the observations and stay updated to get the list of Blockbuster list with inflation adjusted figures…

  3. Atleast there should have been a mention of Taare Zameen par , Laagan, veer zara , too it showed great performance and contribution to the indian film industry. 

    • List is compiled on the basis of the collections that the movies have made with time. 3 idiots is the biggest blockbuster till date since it has highest gross collection.
      Movies are considered blockbuster on the basis of their collections not on the basis of their quality and content.
      Movies like Tare Zameen Par, Lagaan, Veer Zara, Munna Bhai MBBS, 3 idiots , Kal Ho Na Ho are classics but they are not in the list since the collection of these movies are low as compared to the others in the list.
      We will be writing a post on the classics of all time, till then keep visiting and commenting.

    • List is compiled on the basis of collections that the movies have made over time. 3 idiots is the last entry in the list since it is currently the highest grosser. It so whimsical that in Bollywood movies are called blockbusters on the basis of collections that they have made at Boxoffice. I appreciate your choice but these movies did’t mae the money required to be a part of this list. I will write a post called classics of all time and these all will make entry in that.Kill watching and commenting.
