In the last 5 years, Bollywood had seen a new trend as per historical movies is a concern. Be it Bollywood drama or Hindi Version dubbed movie, both got tremendous curiosity among the audience. Let’s analyze the best historical drama Hindi movie in the last 5 years. The saga started with S.S.Rajamouli’s Bahubali – The Beginning. The movie released just one week before Eid in 2015 and becomes the first Hindi dubbed South Indian movie to enter into the 100 Crores nett mark. Despite, the very low opening of around 5 Crores nett it went on to become a BLOCKBUSTER at Hindi market. The sequel of this movie, Bahubali – The Conclusion created a new benchmark at Indian Box Office with a cluster of new records in 2017.
Next come, in Christmas 2015 Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani. The movie clashed with Shahrukh Khan’s Dilwale but still managed to win the battle though it lost the opening race. Bajirao Mastani was a smash HIT at Box Office.
In 2016, Hrithik Roshan’s Historical drama Mohenjo Daro crashed at Box Office. It was clashed with Akshay Kumar’s Rustom on Independence Day Weekend but gone horribly wrong at Box Office. In 2018, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial historical drama Padmaavat surprise everyone. It becomes the first Bollywood movie to cross 275 Crores nett mark without the support of any festival. The movie also set the trend for January release.
Last year (2019), many Historical drama releases but except Akshay Kumar’s Kesari all fails to become a HIT at Box Office. Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika – The Queen Of Jhansi was a success but still fails to lives up to the expectations. Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, Panipat and Tumbbad all these historical movies fail badly at the Hindi market. This year, we saw one more benchmark in the form of Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior. This Ajay Devgn movie becomes the Highest Nett Grosser (around 284 Crores nett) with a clash in Bollywood. The movie can easily be compared with past big grossers at Box Office. Nowadays, it was almost unthinkable for any movie to score over 280 Crores nett mark with a clash on normal release date and ticket rates. The potential for this movie was underachieved. Had it got the better release date it should have easily scored 25-30% more collection. Undoubtedly, it’s one of the best historical drama Hindi movie in last 5 years.
