“Fans worldwide demonstrated interest in a diverse set of Indian movies, from Vikram Vedha to The Great Father. It is interesting to note that films based on classics and mythology, as well as those based on contemporary issues, emerged as the two prominent themes of 2017,” said Neha Gureja, IMDb’s Head of Audience Development. “Socially conscious movies such as Secret Superstar, Hindi Medium, Toilet – Ek Prem Katha, and Mersal resonated among users. Additionally, three of IMDb’s Top 10 Stars of 2017 Indian Cinema (Tamannaah Bhatia, who ranked No. 5; Prabhas, who ranked No. 6; and Anushka Shetty, who ranked No. 9) all starred together in the international blockbuster Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, which was the highest-grossing Indian movie of the year.”
