It maybe worth mentioning that films are declared hit, super-hit, flop, disaster, average and blockbuster on the basis of the revenue earned during their theatrical run at the box office. If a film earns more than the production cost then it is a hit film; if a film earns more than double the production cost by an extra 20 percent, it's declared a super-hit; if a film earns only the production cost then it's an average film; and if a film loses half or more the production cost, it's a flop.
