Winners and losers of 2010.

Winners and losers of 2010.

With a business of more than 150 crores, Salman Khan, the actor, Sonakshi Sinha, the actress, Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Khan the producers of the film Dabaang had been the greatest winners of 2010. The director Abhinav Kashyap had utilized the team of Dabanng including the composers Sajid Wajid, actors Sonu Sood, Mahesh Manjarekar and singers Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal to their best capabilities. The other hit films of the year included Rajneeti, Housefull, Ishqiya, Golmaal 3 and Peepli Live.

To everyone’s surprise the big budget films like Raavan, Kites, Guzarish collapsed at the box-office. Tees Mar Khan had got a good opening. After few weeks it will be seen whether it ends up as hit or not.

Priyanka Chopra had a bad year with all her films ending up in flops including Pyaar Impossible and Anjaana Anjaani. Hrithik Roshan’s two films also flopped including Kites and Guzarish, but his acting in Guzarish had been appreciated. Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif had a decent year with one hit each including Golmaal 3 and Rajneeti. Ranbir Kapoor had a good year with his hit film Rajneeti, but his other film Anjaana Anjaani did mediocre business. Anil Kapoor’s No Problem also ended with mediocre business.

Ashutosh Gowarikar’s project Khelenge Hum Ji Jaan Se flopped and that was the biggest loss of the powerful director who had given super hit films like Jodha Akbar in the past. Akshay Kumar had both hits and flops in the year. While Housefull became hit, Khatta Meetha and Action Replayy flopped. Aishwarya Rai also had a number of flops in the year. It started with Raavan, continued with Action Replayy and ended in Guzarish. Abhishek Bacchan’s both the films Raavan and Khelen Hum Je Jaan Se flopped at box-office.

Ajay Devgan was another winner of the year. He had hits like Rajneeti and Golmaal 3. His other two films like Once Upon a Time in Mumbai and Atithi Tum Kab Jayoge did decent business. “munni badnam hui” and “shiela, shiela ki jawani” were the biggest hit songs of the years, both being item numbers.
