Mohenjo Daro had a poor first day grossing around 8.75 crore nett and even allowing for a clash the collections are far too low for a Hrithik Roshan starrer. The last time a Hrithik Roshan film opened so low was Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara at 7.50 crore nett. Even a Kites had managed to cross the 10 crore nett mark.The collections across multiplexes of India are dull with Rustom doing double the business at many multiplexes. The single screens have performed better and at places better than Rustom but still the single screen business is also well below par. It wll be tough for the film to recover from this as the growth needed on Saturday is huge and even if it is somehow manages 40-50% growth it will be just taking the film to 12-13 crore nett which should have been day one on worst case.
The film has performed better in the South. the collections in Nizam / Andhra can be actually called good and Tamil Nadu / Kerala has also fared decently. North India has fared very poorly for the film with a practical no show in Delhi city and East Punjab. The huge jump is needed on Saturday at the multiplexes and there is huge spare capacity as far as multiplexes are concerned but does it have the content to jump. Its a must if it is make some benefit of the Independence Day holiday on Monday.
