20 Most Expensive Indian Movies Of All Time

India’s most expensive movies list is changing every year as the production budget of Indian movies is climbing up over time. Increase in number of screens and price of movie tickets in India has allowed production houses to spend relatively big bucks on blockbuster movies. But big bucks don’t necessarily mean good quality. You might have already seen 70% of the movies on this list, so you’d know that more often than not, quality of a movie is inversely proportional to its production budget. Here we have curated the list of most expensive Indian movies of all time. (including the ones coming out in 2018)

20. Krrish 3 (2013)

Third movie in the series, and probably the weakest one also. Krrish 3 movie was inspired from X-men, and a few scenes in the movies did actually have some really good VFX, but the terrible storyline was just too hard to bear. Budget: 115 crore

IMDB Rating: 5.3

19. Mohenjo Daro (2016)

The trailers looked good, but the movie was just bland and it was UNNECESSARILY LONG. Budget: 115 crore

IMDB Rating: 5.9

18. Ra.One (2011)

Shah Rukh Khan tried to experiment with this movie but failed terribly. Fancy VFX can’t make up for a bad plot. Budget: 120 crore
IMDB Rating: 4.8

17. Kochadaiiyaan (2014)

Budget: 125 crore
IMDB: 6.6

16. Kick (2014)

Salman Khan’s first of many no brainer movies on this list. Budget: 140 crore
IMDB Rating: 5.4

15. Sultan (2016)

The only bearable Salman Khan’s movie in this list. It ended up being a box office blockbuster. Budget: 145 crore
IMDB Rating: 7.1

14. Bajiraon Mastani (2015)

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s creation deserved to carry a budget of this scale. Beautifully shot and well acted. Budget: 145 crore
IMDb rating: 7.2

13. Spyder (2017)

A big budget movie of last year that went under the radar of many people. Should check it out if you haven’t. Budget: 150 crore
IMDB Rating: 7.3

12. Happy new year (2014)

Perfect example of the inverse relation between quality and budget of Indian movies. Budget: 150 crore
IMDB Rating: 5.2

11. Tiger Zinda Hai (2017)

Almost 3 hour long movie full of terrible dialogues and bad editing. But sadly, it’s stretching to enter 300 crore club because of Salman’s stardom. Budget: 150 crore
IMDB Rating: 6.9

10. Bang Bang! (2014)

A no-brainer big budget action movie that turned out to be a disappointment. Hmm, never seen that before. Budget: 160 crore
IMDB Rating: 5.5

9. Dilwale (2015)

The number of shitty movies in this list is not even surprising tbh. Budget: 165 crore
IMDB Rating: 5.3

8. Dhoom 3 (2013)

The only disappointing Aamir Khan movie in a VERY long time & it’s the one with the biggest budget. Only proves the relation more. Budget: 175 crore
IMDb Rating: 5.4

7. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015)

Another Salman Khan big budget movie on this list. Still gives me nightmares. Budget: 180 crore
IMDB Rating: 4.7

6. Baahubali: The Beginning(2015)

A lesson for Bollywood movies that you can spend big bucks and can still have a good storyline. Budget: 180 crore
IMDb Rating: 8.2

5. Padmavat(i) (2018)

Another big scale Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie on this list, but Padmavati still doesn’t have a release date yet thanks to Karni Sena. But judging by the trailer, it looks AMAZING. Budget: 200 crore

4. Thugs of hindostan (2018)

Details of this movie are not out yet, but Thugs Of Hindostan stars Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. Let’s hope it makes use of the big budget it’s riding on. Budget: 210 crore

3. Thalapathy 62 (2018)

Another upcoming movie that has a 200 crore+ budget. Budget: 250 crore

2. Baahubali 2 (2017)

Although over the top unnecessary VFX degraded the quality of this movie, but Baahubali is still a historical movie for Indian cinema. Budget: 250 crore
IMDb Rating: 8.5

1. 2.0 (2018)

Starring Rajnikanth and Akshay Kumar, this sequel to Robot is shot directly in 3D with fancy VFX. No wonder it has a production budget of over 400 crore. Let’s hope success of 2.0 will motivate production houses to go big. Budget: 450 crore
