Box office 2022 is dangerous for Bollywood. So far, it has dominated the South Pole pole with significant differences in box office numbers. Kannada blockbuster KGF: Chapter 2 topped the list with over 1207 crores. The Yash starrer broke and created records not only for the regional industry but also for the Indian film business. It is followed by another big hit from South RRR. SS Rajamouli’s film, starring Ram Charan and Jr. NTR, grossed over Rs 1112 crore worldwide.

Till a day ago, Kamal Haasan’s Vikram and Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s Brahmastra were at the third and fourth positions respectively. However, Mani Ratnam’s magnum opus Puneyan Selvaan both pushed itself to the third position on the list of highest grossing Indian films of 2022. The period drama featuring an ensemble cast – Vikram, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Trisha, Jayaram, Aishwarya Lakshmi and Sobhita Dhulipala among others grossed Rs 450 crore worldwide. The production house, Laika Productions, shared the PS1 box office figures on their verified Twitter account.

Not only at the box office, but South films are also making noise. Haven’t we all heard about RRR making her way to the Oscars? If the film will land a nomination is still a question, but the buzz is making an impact. Filmmaker SS Rajamouli’s India’s pre-independence epic RRR submitted a request to the Academy of Oscars for consideration in the general category.

“We applied to the Academy of Oscars for consideration in the general category. We welcome our RRR family and thank them from the bottom of our hearts for making this possible. Here’s to winning hearts and the world. continues to entertain the audience,” on a note. RRR’s official Twitter handle reads.

“We are honored that RRR’s tremendous success represented Indian cinema on the global stage by creating milestones at the global box office and uniting film buffs across the world across linguistic and cultural barriers,” it added.

The film will compete in all categories, including Best Motion Picture (DVV Dhaniya), Best Director (SS Rajamouli) and Best Actor (Junior NTR and Ram Charan) among others.

Avengers Endgame makers Russos Brothers, ‘Gremlins’ director Joe Dante, Doctor Strange’s Scott Derrickson and many other acclaimed filmmakers also praised RRR. Similarly, Prashanth Neill’s KGF 2 was loved by the overseas audience.

As films from the south are developing, Bollywood films are losing their grip and audiences are embracing regional cinema with open arms. But they are also waiting to see a Hindi spectacle on celluloid.
