Banjo had a poor first day grossing around 1.25 crore nett apprx with collections being poor all over. The Mumbai circuit was a little bette at 60 lakhs nett and also CP Berar at 11 lakhs nett but even here the film has fared poorly. The collections in Delhi / UP and East Punjab were a total disaster. The collections of the film are lower tha Madaari (1.98 cr) and Freaky Ali (1.91 cr) and in the same range as films like Saala Khadoos (1.26 cr) and Veerapan (1.23 cr). the thing it has common with Saala Khadoos and Veerapan is that they both looked like regional films and so does Banjo. The collections of the film are a little better than Bangistan thanks to the Mumbai / Maharashtra area but below Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya which remains the biggest opener of Riteish Deshmukh as main lead.
The other releases Days Of Tafree, Dil Sala Sanki, Parched, Wah Taj and Yeh Hai Judgement Till Hanged were very dull with many of these films hardly having any collections. Only Days Of Tafree and Parched had some collections. The apprx opening day figures of this weeks releases are as follows.
1. Banjo - 1,25,00,000
2. Days Of Tafree - 15,00,000
3. Parched - 10,00,000
