Mohenjo Daro may have become the sixth highest opener of 2016 at the box office but the Hrithik Roshan filmis still being described as below par. Directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, the period drama set in the Indus Valley Civilization opened to largely unfavorable reviews. Let’s take a look at theMohenjo Daro 7th Day (Thursday) Total Worldwide Box Office collection.
The period drama starring the ‘Greek god’ of Bollywood has failed to impress in terms of box-office collections and has come second to Akshay Kumar starrer “Rustom” which has surpassed it substantially in terms of footfall in the theaters. Director Ashutosh Gowariker projected the film as a blockbuster but failed to provide basic and minimal details regarding Indus Valley Civilization’s greatest city Mohenjo Daro (now in Pakistan). Audiences raised question such as how 2600 BC dwellers learn to dress, beautify or nonetheless save people bare handed and that too from natural calamity? These unanswered queries made the public furious for complete 150 minutes in the theaters.
Moreover, below average acting of Pooja Hedge, meaningless stunts and a bizarre script led to the films unsuccessful run among fans who are preferring the real life Biopic over the period drama set in the B.C. age.For the 6th day since the release of the film, the total box-office collection for the film has settled down to approximately 9 crores INR.
Mohenjo Daro 6th Day Box Office Collection (India)
With a whopping budget of 135 crores with a running time of 150 minutes, Ashutosh Gowarikar’s venture was slated to be among the headlines since it’s first teaser came out. Sadly, the expectations revolving the movie were not lived up to the expectations and is pegged as a sheer wastage of time and money by few people who have already visited the movie halls to watch this Hrithik Roshan’s big budget flick.
The box office collection for Mohenjo Daro on Wednesday in India has ended up at Rs 7.50 crores which is quite poor considering it hasn’t yet been a week since its release.
Mohenjo Daro 6th Day Box Office Collection (Overseas)
With the middle-eastern countries being the only place overseas where the respective film has garnered positive reviews, the overall box office collection of the movie has been very poor outside the country. The movie got a decent amount of footfall during the weekends but not enough to actually give pace to the very slow box office collections of this Ashutosh Gowarikar venture. The overseas box office collection of Mohenjo Daro for Wednesday has generated revenue ofRs. 1.5 crores.
With a very disappointing starting week in terms of box office earnings, Mohenjo Daro is playing second fiddle to the comparatively more preferred and more realistic ‘Rustom’ and has lacked it’s potential estimated at the box office by a great deal. A background score by A.R Rahman and a stellar performance by Kabir Bedi has not been enough to rope in the audience and the lack of footfall will definitely be an issue of interest which director Ashutosh Gowariker will be compelled to look into. Mohenjo Daro 7th day total worldwide box office collection might not be projected in multiplexes further as making space for upcoming flicks would be a better proposal.
