From movies like Chooriyaan to Khuda Ke Liye, Bol to Bin Roye; Lollywood upholds a remarkable journey from the classical golden era to the recent blockbuster champs. Check out the lineage of Pakistan’s top grossing movies in the past fifteen years compiled by Lollywood Movies.
The net worldwide collection of record-breaking Pakistani movies has been expressed in PKR as per the conversion rate of rupee used in the period of the film release.
Basking in glory at the top is the 1998 classic Chooriyan, with an unparalleled gross profit victory of $4.4 million. Even after 15 years of its release, no movie has yet been able to steal the limelight of Syed Noor’s riveting tale starring the iconic Lollywood stars Saima and Moammar Rana.
The runner up in the list is Bilal Lashari’s Waar. The Shaan starrer action flick, which is claimed as the first step towards the resurgence of the nation’s cinema scene, records a money roll of $3.3 million till date.
3. KHUDA KE LIYE
Released eight years ago, Khuda Ke Liye was no less than a firecracker, creating an uproar at the box-office upon its release. Shoaib Mansoor harvested $2.51 million with the revolutionary movie of its time, featuring the heroes Fawad Khan, Shaan and the starlet Imaan Ali.

4. BIN ROYE
HUM TV’s recently released romantic flick Bin Roye has shockingly made it to the fourth spot in the list in such a short time. Boasting a booming business of $2.45 million, the trio of Mahira Khan, Humayun Saeed and Armeena Rana Khan is all set to surpass the success of Khuda Ke Liye in the upcoming days.

Halfway through the list is 2011’s box office hit Bol. The venture of Geo Films has collected a whopping $1.98 million to its name. The movie marked the cinematic debut of Pakistan’s top stars of today: Atif Aslam, Mahira Khan and Humaima Malick.

6. WRONG NO.
The second half of the list charted by Lollywood Movies is dominated by all popular 2014-2015 movies. ARY’s Wrong Number, released with Bin Roye this Eid-ul-Fitr, bagged $ 1.47 million. High on slapstick comedy, masala and an item number; Danish Taimoor’s and Sohai Ali Abroo’s rom-com is being well-received by the movie-buffs till date.
7. NA MALOOM AFRAAD
2014’s success story Na Maloom Afraad reaped the massive cinematic achievement of being the longest running movie in theaters after the revival of the movie scene in the entertainment industry. Starring Javed Sheikh, Fahad Mustafa and Urwa Hocane, it managed to secure $1.25 million worth of profit.
Reeling below the list is Jalaibee with $0.85 million. While the movie was much-touted before its release, it failed to stir the right brew of entertainment. Actors like Adnan Jaffer, Ali Safina, Uzair Jaswal, Asal Din Khan, Danish Tamoir and Waqar Ali Khan comprise the debutante young male cast of the movie along with the glamor girl, Zhalay Sarhadi.
9. KARACHI SEY LAHORE
Jalaibee is closely followed by the comedy-drama Karachi Sey Lahore with a gross profit of $0.8 million, failing to reap box-office gold like it was expected from the movie. Branded as Pakistan’s first ever road trip feature film, it stars the hunk Shehzad Sheikh and the ravishing Ayesha Omar.

10. 3 BAHADUR
Pakistan first animated movie – 3 Bahadur too made it to the list with a smashing turnover of $0.65 million.
