Mohenjo Daro vs Rustom Box Office, Screen Count, Buzz & Trade Expectation.

A big Box Office clash is happening on 12th August, 2016 as Mohenjo Daro and Rustom are releasing on same date.

Already theatrical promo, few song promos are released. Promotional spree of both the film is running on fast pace. Makers of both the films know very well that clash is happening and leaving no stone unturned for one upmanship. Mohenjo Daro stars Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hegde in lead role, whereas Rustom stars Akshay Kumar and Ileana D'Cruz.

On paper when film started rolling Mohenjo Daro looked much ahead in race in comparison to Rustom. Reason, film is big budgeted and made on large scale. Whereas Rustom is made on controlled budget. But once the promos are released and trade feedback is coming in it will be much closer fight now.

Before the release of theatrical trailer of Mohenjo Daro, it was expected by trade and all that it will be one the most anticipated film of the year. Many in trade even expecting film to cross the 200 crore barrier and will gun for highest grosser of the year. But once, trailer released and received mixed reviews specially in trade. Expectation are much less now. Median value of box office expectation of Mohenjo Daro in today's time is around 125-150 crore nett. Earlier it was around 175-200 crore nett.

Coming to Rustom, before the release of trailer, film box office expectation was in the region of 80-90 crore nett. But as trailer released and is unanimously liked by the trade, now median value of box office prediction of Rustom is increased to 115-130 crore nett.

So, it seems a close battle now.

Coming to screen count it is also a close fight now as everything stands at the moment. Before the release of respective trailers of the film, Mohenjo Daro is expected to get screening in around 2800-3000 and Rustom is expected around 1700-1800. But now as today stands expected screening for Mohenjo Daro is around 2500-2600 and Rustom is 2000-2200. 

So, there is not much to choose now. Battle will be more close than expected earlier. Earlier it was looking like Mohenjo Daro will easily overhaul Rustom at box office. But that not the case anymore and few in trade is even giving verdict like a much smaller film Rustom may turn the tide on Mohenjo Daro. If that happens that will not be a major surprise coming.

  2. Admin do you mean to say that Mohenjodaro is gonna be a huge disaster according to the current buzz? From what I heard the budget is around 160cr net. So the film needs atleast 210cr + to break even. And Satellite rights are all about how the film performs at the box office nowadays. This is kind of shocking to the very least.

    At the same time happy for Rustom, as even an 80 cr would have made it recover and make some profit as well. Now it will prove that content is always king as the trailer looks superb.
