Avengers: Endgame's mass appeal wins hearts in three circuits that rule when it comes to action films

Since the last few years, the Hindi film industry has been churning out several massy as well as content heavy films targeting a particular group of audience. Regardless of the film genre, if they click with the moviegoers, they are bound to perform well at the box office in all the 13 territories of India. However, out of those 13, three larger territories, CP, CI and Rajasthan, contribute the maximum when it comes to out and out massy action films.

If you look at the table below, in all the three circuits, eight Hindi films are common among the top 10 highest grossers. Baahubali: The Conclusion and Dangal stand at the first and second positions respectively in all the three circuits. The fourth highest grossing Hollywood film, Avengers: Endgame, stands at the ninth position in CP (Rs 13.03 crore) and tenth position in CI (Rs 9.45 crore) and in Rajasthan (Rs 13.67 crore). Even for Endgame, the higher contribution is from the Hindi dubbed version rather than the English version. The final installment of Avengers has worked here because of its mass appeal otherwise other Hollywood films, which are not action films, have a much limited audience here.
