Two biggies Mohenjo Daro and Rustom opened in theaters yesterday. The buzz around Akshay Kumar’s Rustom is quite high compared to Hrithik’s Mohenjo Daro. But if we look at the opening day collections of Hrithik and Akki’s films, Hrithik Roshan’s films have taken higher opening. Though, not to forget, Akki has managed to give maximum films in a year.

While, till now Singh Is Bliing is the only film of Akshay Kumar, which has taken an opening over 20 crores, Hrithik’s last 3 films Bang Bang, Krrish 3 and Agneepath opened over 20 crores.

  1. #MohenjoDaro Simplicity in first half and action in second half.. well balanced.
    Shocking opening that before even ppl sit down.. a croc attack fight.. to the soothing.. mother Ganga.. it’s gonna get WoM..

    I want this film to do a profitable business and to prove that the ugly group-ism cannot destroy talent.

    Good Luck HR & AG.

  2. Rustom is good performance …. Rustom is better than Mohenjo-Daro…. Rustom will higher opner than Mohenjo-Daro in my expectations…

  3. Mohenjo Daro film making is really like an achieving a milestone, movie is excellent only script is week and VFX used are not up to the mark. Mohenjo Daro will do good business whereas Rustom is a same court room suspense drama and nothing new in it. Mohenjo Daro 1st day collection will be approx. 20-24 crores whereas Rustom will do 10-12 crores.

  4. Hrithik has a few big openings .. but he comes almost every 2 years lol. . Akki does incredible for the frequency with which his films release! Congratulations to rustom!

  5. I’ve watched both films in theatre, and seriously Mohenjo Daro is far better than Rustom! There are many beautiful aspect in Mohenjo Daro whereas in Rustom there is nothing new! There’s nothing patriotic in Rustom but is a common story based mostly in Court! Rustom is earning better all because of publicities and most critics in internet was in favour of Rustom just by comparing both trailer! You can’t judge a film by its trailer and start criticizing! That’s why Mohenjo Daro was not able to earn big on the opening because all these biased critic! Go watch the film first and you’ll see that Mohenjo Daro is far better and deserve a better B.O than Rustom.
