Bollywood movies had a great year in 2023 in terms of business. Multiple movies like Jawan, Pathaan, Animal, Gadar 2, Dunki, Tiger 3 and Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani achieved massive box office success.

Lakadbaggha and Operation Fryday did not make a mark. In total, January 2023 Bollywood movies raked in 1,065.83 crore.

February 2023 Hindi movies

Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat, Faraaz, Shiv Shastri Balboa and The Tenant did not make any mark. The first fortnight of February 2023 was rather cold.
