2009 wasn't really a happy year as far as box office results are concerned. Except for 3 IDIOTS, no real records were created while disasters were galore. Producers strike, IPL cricket and recession further dented the prospects for dozens of films that released. This is why those select films (listed in alphabetical order) which worked were perhaps the best that Bollywood had to offer in 2009.
Hirani, Aamir and Co. have proved everyone wrong by smartly placing their product in such a manner that any centre - whether big or small, any theatre - whether multiplex or single screen, any segment - whether class or mass, has embraced the film in a big way. The film is all set to topple GHAJINI, which holds the record of being the biggest money spinner ever.
