Banjo the movie which was successful in impressing the movie critics failed on box office very badly. Banjo collections for the first day of release can’t even touch the mark of 2 crores with over 50% response from Maharashtra. Among the Maharashtra more than 30% came entirely from Mumbai alone. It appears that movie was released as a Marathi film not a bollywood one.
The minimum to minimum for a small budget bollywood movie with no stars could easily cross 2 crores as opening day earnings but Banjo collections failed to do so. Overall the movie failed to impress any audience and hasn’t been liked by the viewers. Moreover, having a quite similar story as of ABCD and Rockstar had also affected the same.
Before the release because of wide scale promotions and good craze of audience, Banjo was expected to take atleast decent start on box office. But in theaters audience is looking more interested in last week released social thriller Pink, instead of this newly released musical drama. The opening business of Riteish starrer was lesser than the 8th day’s business of Shoojit Sircar’s Pink (3.15 crores).
Then on the third day i.e. Saturday, it showed little rise in its business and estimated to add the amount of 2.15 crores* to its account. With this, 2 days total collection of the movie has become 3.87 crores* on domestic box office. To register a respected opening weekend total, Banjo has to take big jump on Sunday which doesn’t seem possible.
