After topping box office collections chart, Aamir Khan’s ‘PK’ makes it to IMDB’s top 250 films list

Aamir Khan’s blockbuster hit ‘PK’ has generated humongous box office collections in India as well as abroad.

The Rajkumar Hirani directed PK that released in December last year set a new record in terms of box office collections. Now, we hear that the Aamir Khan-Anushka Sharma starrer PK has managed to find its way into the list of Top 250 films on one of the most visited film database sites IMDB.

Interestingly, this is be Aamir Khan’s sixth film to enter the list of 250 after Lagaan (2001), Dil Chahta Hai (2001), Rang De Bassanti (2006), Taare Zameen Par (20o7) and 3 Idiots (2009). At present, PK is at number 246 on the IMDB list.

The only other non-Aamir Khan Bollywood movie to feature in this list is Gangs of Wasseypur (2012).

As for the list, it is developed using the true Bayesian estimate formula that minimizes the posterior expected value of a loss function (i.e., the posterior expected loss), while simultaneously maximizing the posterior expectation of a utility function.

 The Shawshank Redemption (1994), The Godfather (1972) and The Godfather: Part II (1974) remain at the top of the chart.

True Bayesian estimate formula:

Weighted Rating (WR) = (v ÷ (v+m)) × R + (m ÷ (v+m)) × C


R = average for the movie (mean) = (Rating)
v = number of votes for the movie = (votes) 
m = minimum votes required to be listed in the Top 250 (currently 25000) 
C = the mean vote across the whole report (currently 7.0)

        Wrong Info. It is 6th entry. Taare zameen par(Like stars on earth) is also in the list at 109. There should be more clics in that list, Example: Mangal Pandey(The Rising)(revolutionary, independence), 1947 Earth(reality), Fanaa(love), Andaz apna apna(comedy), Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin(romance)(1st half is similar to It Happened One Night, but 2nd half is different. People would enjoy this film much more than original)

                If IMDb ratings are seriously to be given so much weightage, let it also be mentioned that 2 of NeeraJ Pandey's films (Baby and A Wednesday) have entered the top 5 (with Baby occupying the top spot) in the list of 'Highest Rated Feature Films With Country of Origin India and At Least 10,000 Votes' (Ref.: :www.imdb/search/le?countries=in&le_type=feature&num_votes=10000,&sort=user_rating,desc )
