Our monthly feature The India Box Office Report tracks the performance of the various films released every month at the Indian (domestic) box office. Monthly reports are published on this website in the third week of the following month. If the numbers for your film do not match those in our report, we will be happy to get information from you on the same, and update the report. Our email ID is mentioned at the end of this report below.

This is the November 2022 edition of the report. You can access the previous reports in the Insights section of this website.

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 (e.g., Drishyam 2 in this report), 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, RRR released on March 25, 2022, and a sizeable component of the film’s business was registered in April. However, in the analysis, RRR’s entire box office has been credited to the month of March.

Cumulative Box Office: November 2022

Films released in November 2022 grossed ₹ 711 Cr at the domestic box office, the lowest since July 2022. While Drishyam 2 performed exceptionally well, no other film managed to cross the ₹ 100 Cr mark, limiting the overall national number to a modest one.

The cumulative box office for Jan-Nov 2022 stands at ₹ 9,751 Cr. Films releasing in December need to gross at least ₹ 1,197 Cr for 2022 to become the best-ever year at the domestic box office, in terms of gross collections. 2019 currently holds that record at ₹ 10,948 Cr. With the success of Avatar: The Way Of Water, the ₹ 10,000 Cr mark has already been achieved in 2022, at the time of publishing this report.

Top 10 Films

The chart below lists the top 10 films released in November 2022, based on their box office performance in India.

With its exceptional box office run, which is expected to close around the  ₹ 280 Cr gross mark, Drishyam 2 was the leading film of the month by a wide margin, making November 2022 a rare month that saw a Hindi film lead the way. The film now features at no. 8 on the list of top grossers in India in 2022.

Language Share

Language share fluctuates at a monthly level, depending on the big releases that month. Hence, we report language shares based on year-to-date numbers (Jan-Nov 2022 in this case). For this calculation, language-wise box office of films releasing in multiple languages is assigned to the corresponding language. However, for Hollywood, the data for all languages is reported under the language head ‘Hollywood’.

Hindi language's share is the highest we have seen since the start of the year, at 35%. This, however, is well below the 44% contribution of Hindi language to the 2019 domestic box office.
