Fighter, Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya, and Article 370 are the only three Hindi films in the top 10 films of the year thus far. Hindi cinema has contributed 34% to the domestic box office so far, which is 10 percentage points lower than 2023 (44% share). The success of multiple films has resulted in the share of Malayalam films being at 17%, higher than Tamil, Hollywood and Kannada, during these early days of 2024. Malayalam's share was only 5% in 2023.

How to read the numbers in this report?

Different language industries follow different reporting conventions (Gross, Nett or Share). We have used Gross Box Office as the unified measure for this report. For films releasing in multiple languages, collections are added up across languages to arrive at the film’s Gross Box Office at an all-India level.

Some films may be running in theatres at the time of publishing this report every month. For these films, Gross Box Office is estimated based on the latest trends available. Hence, it is normal that some numbers may be updated in the following month’s report, once actual collections have been estimated.

Numbers for a film are assigned to the month of its release, even if the business is spread over two or more months. For example, Pathaan released on January 25, 2023, and a sizeable component of the film’s business was registered in February 2023. However, in the analysis, Pathaan's entire box office has been credited to the month of January.
