Dhoom: 3: This year's most eagerly awaited film closed 2013 with a bang. Dhoom: 3, loaded with bike-riding Aamir and Katrina's gymnastics, is a nailbiting sequence of unpredictable events and heart-stopping stunts. Dhoomsday, on December 20, was the final feather in the cap of a year that finally witnessed the shattering of Aamir Khan's 3 Idiots record.

Chennai Express: That record was broken by another Khan. Shah Rukh's 40-year-old hero took the train from Mumbai to Rameshwar, met Deepika Padukone's feisty Tamil runaway and the journey that followed was a laugh riot on such epic scale that, after three years on top, Aamir's blockbuster 3 Idiots was finally relegated to second place in the annals of Bollywood's highest earners.

The Lunchbox: The audience grabbed this meal with relish. Love blossoms between a neglected Malad housewife and a lonely Bandra widower who exchange a series of scribbled notes after a dabbawala accidently delivers her lunchbox into his hands.

Krrish 3: Just three months after Chennai Express smashed 3 Idiots' record, Krrish, Kaal and Kaya came along and pushed Aamir's film to third place and SRK's film to second.
