    While Akshay Kumar starrer Airlift has emerged as the single most successful film in 2016, Sunny Deol starrer Ghayal Once Again follows far behind in its wake, but one thing is clear and that is the year 2016 has got off to slow start as far as a worried industry is concerned. We take a look here at the top 5 movies of 2016 - the list includes Amitabh Bachchan starrer Wazir, Tusshar Kapoor's Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3 and Sunny Leone's Mastizaade. Check out their journey: (IANS)

    1. Akshay Kumar's Airlift finds itself in the fortunate ones' list after firing on all cylinders even as the year 2016 has seen some of the big guns in the industry wondering what went wrong. Airlift box office collections in India have risen to Rs 122.65 crore - the film is still running in some theaters, but that will hardly alter the total in any meaningful way. Airlift released on 22nd January, 2016 and its day 1 box office collections were good at Rs 12.35 crore as it released on a working Friday - most top cinema stars look to avoid working days and target holidays to ensure more footfalls, but Akshay did not manage to get that. Airlift opening weekend collection (for the 3-day period of Friday, Saturday and Sunday) was a big Rs 44.30 crore and it almost doubled that to Rs 83.50 crore by the end of week 1. Lifetime collections were Rs 122.65 cr. (Source: IE)

    2. Sunny Deol starrer Ghayal Once Again box office collections suffered a hiccup on release day itself managing an average Rs 7.20 crore and then logged a take of Rs 23.25 crore by the opening weekend - it released on 5th February, 2016. Its end of week 1 figures are not yet available, but the lifetime collections are Rs 29.95 crore by day 5. Among the biggest problems with Ghayal Once Again was that it did not have a focussed approach and that means there were too many loose ends floating around (read 'stories') in the film that run simultaneously, thus confusing the viewers. This hurt the word of mouth boost for the box office collections as few of those who saw the movie had anything good to say about the movie or Sunny Deol himself. The content and the context too was dated. (Source: IE)

    3. Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar starrer Wazir box office collections started on a very slow note bagging Rs 5.61 crore on day 1 (it released on 8 January, 2016) and went on to log an opening weekend take of Rs 21.01 crore. The first week's take was a modest Rs 29.95 crore and lifetime collections logged were Rs 40.93 crore. While the movie did not make waves at the B.O., nevertheless there was praise for veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar - a constricting storyline and lack of over-the-top marketing fielded all the blame. Wazir was the first movie release of the year. (Bollywood Hungama)

    4. Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3 box office collections were indeed modest since the film was a sex comedy and the settings were garish while the dialogue was crass. Kya Kool Hain Hum 3 has Aftab Shivdasani, Tusshar Kapoor, Mandana in lead roles and released on 22nd January, 2016. In fact, as soon as the film released on Friday the hatchets were out about what the filmmakers have done to the successful franchise. Overall, with outrageous lines and scandalous visuals the film appears somewhat funny at times but cheap in the overall perspective. The film managed collections of Rs 8.15 crore on day 1, which surprised one and all, as it was expected to do much worse. By the opening weekend, the film collected Rs 20.15 crore. At the end of the week it had Rs 29.65 crore to show and managed an overall Rs 30.06 crore. (Bollywood Hungama)

    5. The Sunny Leone starrer Mastizaade box office colelctions went according to script. The take on day 1 was Rs 5.59 crore and rose to Rs 18.45 crore by opening weekend. Mastizaade collections by the end of week 1 were Rs 28.74 crore and lifetime take was Rs 28.74 crore. Mastizaade had released to mixed reactions and as such suffered at the B.O. These figures were expected from what happened to Sunny Leone's previous releases - Ragini MMS 2 and Jism 2 collected Rs 8.43 cr and Rs 6.20 cr respectively on the opening day, Kucch Kucch Locha managed to collect just Rs 0.75 cr. In fact, Mastizaade did not received any boost from the fact that Sunny Leone got so much publicity ahead of its release due to a controversial interview in a TV channel in which superstar Aamir Khan had taken her side.
