The much-awaited big budget movie of Yash Raj Films, Thugs of Hindostan is in theatres now. Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh starrer Thugs Of Hindostan has become the biggest YRF opener with the highest grossing movie for Diwali release. Ever since the trailer and songs teasers of the film were released, the fans were excited to watch the star-studded movie.
Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, Thugs Of Hindostan has got failed to live up to its humongous expectations and received mixed reviews. From the audience as well, the movie is getting a mixed response, which is easily visible in falling numbers at the box office.
This action adventure was opened on Thursday at a humongous note and remained strong throughout the day. With an overall 70-75% occupancy across the country, it registered the opening business of 52.25 crores (50.75 crores from Hindi only) and become the biggest opener of all time in Bollywood.
On the next day i.e. Friday, Thugs Of Hindostan witnessed a heavy drop of 44.02% and bagged the amount of 29.25 crores with 28.25 crores from Hindi screens. Then on Saturday, with a further decline of 19.47%, the movie minted the amount of 23.50 crores (22.75 crores from Hindi). With this, the total collection of Yash Raj Films’ presentation after 3 days, has become 105 crores at the domestic.
All in all, critics were not impressed by the “juvenile storytelling” of the film, which also stars Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh. The period film is fictional and created an expectation to offer a big canvas experience to the audience, with its trailer. Some critics also called the film ‘a golden opportunity lost’ and ‘a king-sized disappointment’.
