The recently released Aamir Khan starrer Dhoom 3 generated massive collections at the box-office breaking multiple records. While we at Bollywood Hungama take a look at how each film fares at the box-office in comparison to the previous release, Aamir Khan threw open yet another comparative metric. 

According to Aamir, "To measure a film's success, you need to see the weekend figures and compare it with the total collection. Like 3 idiots did Rs. 40 crores on the weekend and the total business was Rs. 202 crores, so the weekend multiplied by 5, is the behavior of the film which is very good. That shows people have gone again and again to see the film. Jo film teen din mein 100 crore karein aur total mein 200 crore karein, then that film is not good." 

In this report while comparing the quality of movies, we introduce a Metric - Weekend to Lifetime Multiple for the 100 crore club. According to this comparison, a higher multiple indicates strong content and therefore longevity at cinemas, which in turn signifies footfalls being attracted in subsequent weeks. 

From this analysis, Shah Rukh Khan's two films Ra.One and Jab Tak Hai Jaan rank at the bottom of the list while his recent hit Chennai Express comes in at number 17.

Taking the comparison a step further we also decided to list a few of the films that have featured a good multiplier rating. Unlike the 100 crore club this list comprises of smaller releases like Vicky Donor, Ishaqzaade, Raajneeti, Tanu Weds Manu and others.

Article is taking Taran's figures... so here it is for Dhoom 3 Metric

Dhoom 3 = Weekend  - 100.76 Cr = Projected lifetime 270 Cr -= 2.67 Score

Means acc. 2 Aamir table = D3 stands at No.11 ROFL Biggest Grosser LOL
