Rustom Is Third Best Opening Of 2016

Rustom has take the third best opening of the year in terms of all India occupancy after Sultan and Fan which were bot holiday releases. The clash has meant the occupancy is little bit higher than normal for both films as the screens have been shared by both films. The occupancy of Rustom ensures that it will lead on day one as Mohenjo Daro can’t close this gap despite being having a higher screen count. The films together will still probably struggle to get 25 crore nett plus between them which would be a par number for two big films on a non holiday coming on more than 5000 screens but that will be due to the under performance of Mohenjo Daro.

1. Sultan – 70% (4350 Screens)

2. Fan – 42.5% (3400 Screens)

3. Rustom – 40% (2350 screens)

4. Baaghi – 37.5% (2700 Screens)

5. Housefull 3 – 32.5% (3600 Screens)

6. Dishoom – 30% (3000 screens)

7. Airlift – 27.5% (2000 Screens)

8. Mohenjo Daro- 25% (2700 screens)

Note – These occupancy are for morning shows before noon only and do not reflect how the final day will end up as the trend is sometimes different in the evening.

Rustom is set for a solid first day which can set a good platform for its weekend business. Mohenjo Daro will be all about growth on Saturday which is tough with a clash.

    Mohenjo Daro And Rustom Day One Early Estimates
    Friday 12 August 2016 23.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    The big clash between Mohenjo Daro and Rustom has turned out to be a bit of a let down as Rustom has runaway with the better first day collections. Rustom will gross around 14 crore nett as per early estimates while Mohenjo Daro will be around 8.50 crore nett as per early estimates. The combined figure is around 22-23 crore nett which is the sort figure that would have been expected before release but instead of sharing pot the battle has gone the way of the Akshay Kumar starrer which has notched up good collections at multiplexes while single screens are at a similar level and neither film has really performed at single screens.

    It will be tough for Mohenjo Daro to recover from this as its a costly film at well over 100 crore and at that cost its tough without an initial. The film has performed better in South India and it will lead in Nizam / Andhra, Tamil Nadu / Kerala and possibly in a couple of the East India circuits but thats just not good enough. Rustom has done very well at multiplexes and is even doubling the Mohenjo Daro collections in some cities and looks set for a big four day weekend as multiplexes may grow on Saturday but even if the maintain at these levels it will be good enough.

    Mohenjo Daro Has Poor First Day
    Saturday 13 August 2016 11.00 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    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.

    Mohenjo Daro First Weekend Business
    Monday 15 August 2016 11.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Mohenjo Daro had a low weekend of 30 crore nett plus although the trend of the film is better than what could have been expected after the first day. The film could have just catipulated as Rustom is doing very well but managed to grow on Saturday and Sunday. This won’t really make much difference to the final outcome unless a miracle happens on Tuesday. The best business for the film has come in Nizam / Andhra which has clocked 2.50 crore nett over the weekend and is actually the third biggest opening in that circuit Sultan and Fan. The main markets of Mumbai and North have not done well, there has been growth over the weekend but even the Sunday numbers in either Mumbai or Delhi / UP are poor. Below are the daily first weekend figures of Mohenjo Daro.

    Friday – 8,75,00,000

    Saturday – 9,50,00,000

    Sunday – 12,00,00,000

    TOTAL – 30,25,00,000

    The knives will be out for Hrithik Roshan after this as the not only has the film fared poorly but also did not open, even the Overseas market could not open. But Hrithik Roshan is an established star so the stardom remains intact unless this start to happens all the time. There is a problem with selection of subjects as he is still to cross the 200 crore nett mark despite being one of the few stars who has given a couple 20 crore nett plus openings. Its the same for akshay Kumar but there the volume of work is much higher and the initials less.

    Hrithik Roshan did a similar film like this Jodhaa Akbar which also did not do too well. He tends to work well in the commercial action format as even a Bang Bang managed 140 crore nett which is a good number though it was not a big hit due to huge costs. But over the last few years there has been a Jodhaa Akbar, Guzaarish, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and now Mohenjo Daro and with this sort of stuff, the Hrithik Roshan brand takes a beating. He is an established star and there is time to pull this round but it has to be quick as that image of a smart action dance star could be hit as youngers stars try establish in the same image.

    Rustom Has Strong First Weekend
    Monday 15 August 2016 12.00 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Rustom had a good first weekend of 50 crore nett apprx. In real value the business is actually better than it looks as it clashed with Mohenjo Daro and the Saturday and Sunday business of the film would have been higher in the big multiplexes if it had more screens. Sometimes this is not an issue as films don’t get such high occupancy even with clash but here the film has gone to 80% with screenings at peak time going housefull. More screens would have meant more shows at peal periods which would mean higher collections. On a solo release this film would have been the highest Akshay Kumar opening weekend as even on worst case you can add 5 crore though it would probably be more like 8-10 crore nett. The film is a HIT and though mass regions are less than the big cities they have still performed much better than Airlift. Below is the daily weekend business of Rustom.

    Friday – 14,00,00,000

    Saturday – 16,25,00,000

    Sunday – 19,50,00,000

    Total – 49,75,00,000

    The best business has come in Mumbai circuit at around 17.50 crore nett, Delhi UP is around 9.50 crore nett and East Punjab is 5.50 crore nett. It is a record opener for Akshay Kumar in Mysore and West Bengal with 2.75 crore nett and 2 crore nett respectively. The circuit where the collections are a little less is Nizam / Andhra and that may be because Mohenjo Daro has fared better there and had a wider release. The film will have a huge Monday and it will be among the biggest ever due to the Independence Day. It remains to be seen if its among the top five Monday’s of all time.

    Mohenjo Daro First Monday Business
    Tuesday 16 August 2016 11.00 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Mohenjo Daro did fair business on Independence Day clocking up a 10 crore nett total and taking its tally to 40 crore nett. The film dropped around 15-20% from the previous day. The film has not done too bad till date from the start it took. It has covered 40 crore nett in four days from a start of 8.75 crore nett with a stronger film releasing on the same day. It is nowhere near good enough for the costs of the film but they way the film opened and the competition from Rustom it could have gone the Bombay Velvet way and totally fizzled out. The film still faces problems on Tuesday as the main areas of Mumbai and North are pretty low and could fall badly on Tuesday. Below are the daily first four day figures of Mohenjo Daro.

    Friday – 8,75,00,000

    Saturday – 9,50,00,000

    Sunday – 12,00,00,000

    Monday – 10,00,00,000

    TOTAL – 40,25,00,000

    The first week business of the film will depend on where it goes tomorrow. There are a couple of partial holidays over the next few days but they only provide limited help and pust collections up by 10-25% from the normal. It will be the second weeknd that will tell where Mohenjo Daro will finnally go.

    Rustom Is Excellent On Monday
    Tuesday 16 August 2016 11.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Rustom had a super strong Monday as it took full advantage of Independence Day collecting a little under 18 crore nett and taking its four day total to 67 crore nett plus. The drop on Independence day was around 10% from the Sunday which is excellent. An Akshay Kumar film has never even taken a 10 crore nett Monday before though not many films have probably landed on a holiday. It was also the highest Monday of the year beating Sultan but it was a non holiday Monday for that film. The hold was there all over be it the slightly weaker circuits like CP Berar and Bihar or the stronger ones like Mumbai and North. This also puts it in the lead with the four day comparison of other Akshay Kumar films this year like Airlift and Housefull. The lead is pretty comfortable also as it is 6 crore ahead of Housefull 3 after four days while Airlift was not even 50 crore nett after four days.

    Friday – 14,00,00,000

    Saturday – 16,25,00,000

    Sunday – 19,50,00,000

    Monday – 17,75,00,000

    Total – 67,50,00,000

    It will the Tuesday and second Friday business that will be they key to where the film will go. The first week will be the highest ever for an Akshay Kumar starrer even on a worst case scenario. The partial holidays in the next few days will bump up the collections a little and then there is not much competition in the second week and it has to take advantage of that. The film will cross 100 crore nett but that is no benchmark for successful star cast films today and the real question is how far above 100 crore nett can it go.
