Hello, readers if you can’t get enough of KGF 2 and are wondering why the Bollywood film industry doesn’t do masala as well as the South, let’s run your memory with the promising Bollywood masala movies to binge-watch on OTT platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Voot Select, ZEE5, Disney Hotstar and Apple TV…
KGF 2 is doing the ridiculous well at the box office both in the Hindi belt and the rest of India, too. Apart from becoming the first film to hit a century daily for 4 days in a row across India since opening, KGF Chapter 2 also shared the highest opening day, opening weekend and opening week for any film in the Hindi belt while also becoming the fastest to reach ₹250 crore nett in the Hindi market. The Yash, Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon and Srinidhi Shetty starrer, directed by Prashanth Neel, also registered the third-highest opening of all time pan-India after RRR and Baahubali 2 apart from finishing with a ₹748 crore gross worldwide, thus moving up to the eight spots among the highest-grossing Indian movies worldwide of all time, having overtaken Baahubali and Sultan.
Om Shanti Om (Netflix) Homages to the masala genre from yesteryears don’t get more promising than this.
Dabangg (Netflix) The outstanding masala cop to top all other cops in the genre.
Amar Akbar Anthony (Voot) is Often viewed as the big daddy of masala movies in Bollywood and a pioneer of the genre.
Yaadoon Ki Baaraat (ZEE5) Another pioneer of masala movies in Bollywood cinema.
Rowdy Rathore (Apple TV) This really puts the ‘rowdy’ into the double-role formula of masala movies.
Singham (Amazon Prime) A very different cop to that in Dabangg, but just as crucial and historic to masala films.
Hum (Disney Hotstar) It’s only fitting that a celeb intrinsic to the success of masala movies and vice-versa finds a second mention here.
