As the year 2022 enters its second half, we had Bollywood films with several major entertainers helmed by superstars who failed to bring audiences to theatres, while some content-driven moderate budget films fared better!
Bollywood in 2022 has so far been heavily dependent on audience emotions or pan-Indian titles. Here we take a look back at the list of Hindi films that stood out, won the support and love of audiences across the country, were extremely popular and also made the box office bang!

Kashmir Files – A film that one would not normally expect to do well but took the box office by storm, The Kashmir Files became the subject of heated debate and was a hit with audiences.
Major – ‘Major’ has won hearts with its content and Adivi Sesh seems to be a clear crowd pleaser too! The film achieved an extremely rare feat and also became the only Indian film that year to record almost 100 per cent growth at the box office in its very first weekend.
RRR – A film that came, saw and conquered, SS Rajamouli’s RRR resonated with audiences across the country and even found several outlets within the Hindi belt. The film even surpassed the 1000 Cr mark worldwide and became one of the highest grossing films of all time.
Gangubai Kathiawadi – Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, this was his first collaboration with Alia Bhatt. In the film, Alia played an author-assisted role, surprising audiences and critics alike.
