Hrithik Roshan‘s Kaabil hit the screens on January 25 and it got the ball rolling straight away. The movie started slowly, with just an average occupancy of 30-40 per cent in the morning shows. It grew to 50 per cent by the end of the day, thus enabling Kaabil to earn Rs 10.43 crore on day 1. Though this is a decent figure, how did it fare against the collections of his last few releases? By looking at the box office figures, we can say that Kaabil has been able to beat the first day collections of Mohenjo Daro. However, it failed to defeat the the likes of his last few hits at the box office.
As we told you, Kaabil has collected Rs 10.43 crore on day 1. If you compare this to the first day collections of Mohenjo Daro (Rs 8.87 crore), you know that Kaabil has defeated it. But it is clear that it was no match to Bang Bang! (Rs 27.54 crore), Krrish 3 (Rs 25.50 crore) and Agneepath (Rs 23 crore) on day 1 at the domestic box office. However, Hrithik should not worry as a strong word of mouth publicity will surely push Kaabil to greater heights. The movie has got great reviews and the movie-goers have also been raving about the movie on social media. So clearly, Kaabil has better days ahead of itself.

In fact, considering that Kaabil got just 2200 screens and had a non-holiday release, the collections are pretty good. The movie also deserves a round of applause coz it earned such a decent amount of money even after clashing with a film like Shah Rukh Khan‘s Raees. Currently, SRK’s film is leading at the box office, but with a storng word of mouth publivity, Kaabil can easily overtake it in the next few days.
