Banjo 5 Days Total Box Office Collection
Riteish Deshmukh and Nargis Fakhri starrer has completely failed to entertain audience and struggling to keep hold over them. Riteish is undoubtedly a very versatile actor in the industry but still Banjo is crashing down so early. His fan base is also not able to save it. In the opening weekend, Ravi Jadhav’s directorial recorded only 30% of total growth from the opening day and raked the business of only 5.92 crores including 1.72 crore of Friday, 1.95 crore of Saturday and 2.25 crores of Sunday. Whereas the last weekend released Pink registered 15.21 crores in its second weekend.
Banjo started poorly and its trend over the weekdays, where it largely stayed flat, pretty much sealed its fate. The film could bring in just Rs. 1 crore* more on Monday and that is a fall from Friday which was anyways quite low at Rs. 1.72 crore. At Rs. 6.92 crore*, the Riteish Deshmukh starrer has crossed the lifetime total of Bangistan [Rs. 5.4 crore] but that doesn’t say much as the Excel production was a disaster. What has to be seen though is how much closer doesBanjo come to the lifetime total of Great Grand Masti [Rs. 14 crore].
Then on the next day i.e. Tuesday, it faced more drop and estimated to add the amount of 0.75 crore* to its account. With this 5 days total collection of the movie is likely to become 7.62 crores* on domestic box office. From next Friday, highly anticipated M.S.Dhoni The Untold Story is being released. So it won’t be possible for Banjo to stand in front of that. The trends suggest that Banjo would miss this mark by a couple of crore.
Other new releases are continuing their poor run and though Parched is seeing some kind of patronage from a very-very niche audience (at very low numbers), in the final tally it doesn’t count as just around Rs. 70 lakhs* have come in so far. Unfortunately, the other new releases, Wah Taj and Days of Tafree, aren’t managing even this level of collections.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
