It was generally expected that that January 2015 itself would surely witness a couple of successes if not hits, but that was not the case. The first major release, TEVAR, flattered to deceive and turned out to be a failure. The second biggie, Akshay Kumar's BABY was off to some brilliant reviews and extremely positive feedback, but could not make it to the hit mark, more so due to the heavy involved costs. Having said that, BABY is the biggest grosser of the year, falling short of the century mark by just 4-5 crore. The film though is an above average success.


The next two probable hits were megastar Amitabh's SHAMITABH and Sriram Raghavan's BADLAPUR. While SHAMITABH turned to be a huge failure, the Varun-Nawaz starrer BADLAPUR (still running) managed a semi-hit status with an over 50 crore haul from India and $2m from the overseas.

However, the biggest surprise came in the month of March via Yash Raj Films' very reasonably costing (15 crore all inclusive) DUM LAGA KE HAISHA, which despite a slow start, has turned out to be the first clean hit of the year, having netted over well over 20 crore (till date), and may finally end up with a 30 crore end total. What must also be kept in mind is the fact that DLKH already has a good satellite price (8 crore) in its kitty and is still to release in the overseas.

Well, as they say (pleasant) surprises come in small sizes!
