Sridevis Mom lead the small film pack in 2017

via filmfares 2017 was a year of small films and smart projects. It was year where small budgets and strong content triumphed while big budget movies struggled. It was movies like Mom, Tumahri Sulu, Fukrey Returns, Newton and Lipstick Under My Burkha that performed phenomenally at the box-office. Had it not been for a late surge by big ticket flicks like Tiger Zinda Hai and Golmaal Again, 2017 would've been the year of Indie cinema.

Boney Kapoor's production Mom, featuring a powerhouse performance by Sridevi, set the tone early in the calendar year. Made on a modest budget, Mom raked in excess of 30 crores gross at the box-office of which the nett India BO share was 13.35 crores. Along with this phenomenal tally, Mom also earned 6.60 crores at the overseas box-office. Electronic rights for the film were sold at a stellar 26 crores and along with audio, branding and subsidy, the film managed another 7-10 crores.


Reportedly, the film even did great business in non traditional overseas territories like Japan , Russia, Poland , Turkey etc. Mom really set the trend for the smaller films to hit big. Sridevi's strong performance along with debutant Ravi Udyawar's crisp storytelling ensured Mom ignited a trend of strong content for Indie films.

As for 2018, there are reports that Sridevi could collaborate with Sanjay Dutt again for a film directed by Abhishek Varman under the Dharma banner. Watch this space for more.
