As the year 2008 comes to an end, we assess what worked in Bollywood and what did not. Broadly classifying films in 5 main categories as per their box-office performance, we present to you the hits and misses of 2008.

Super Hit

Akshay Kumar's Singh is Kinng (approx.131cr) proved that slapstick still works if served with star value. Akshay Kumar's global fan-following and the Punjabi audience base in India as well as overseas gave this film a superhit status.

Ashutosh Gowariker's magnum-opus Jodhaa Akbar (approx.113 cr), despite its gigantic budget of around 40 crores, managed in to rake good collections and the overseas audience contributed a good percentage of the box-office figures.
