Thugs of Hindostan Official Day 3 Box Office Collections
Experts, who were not impressed by the Aamir Khan-Amitabh Bachchan period action film, had predicted that the movie will lose momentum once the initial hype around it dies down.
Thugs of Hindostan has collected 21 crores on Saturday at the box office taking its collection to 100.75 crores. By hitting the century in 3 days, Thugs of Hindostan has joined elite group of movies. The Aamir Khan starrer had opened on November 8 on a historic note collecting 52.25 crores on the first day.
With critics and viewers giving the movie a unanimous thumbs down , it witnessed a massive 45-50% drop in its collections on the second day. The business of Thugs of Hindostan has gone from record breaking level to average level on the third day. Normally the late night shows on Saturday do not see dip but the occupancy of the movie fell by over 50 per cent which always a worrying sign. [ Also Read : Thugs of India Day 2 collections ]
Thugs of Hindostan is a golden opportunity lost to create history and the fault is mainly down to the director of the movie. This is for the first time since Mangal Pandey, a Aamir Khan movie has faced an outright rejection from the viewers.
The problem for Thugs of Hindostan hasn’t been the star power of Aamir Khan or other factors like genre. The movie was meant to be a entertaining thriller with plenty of action sequences and emotions.
The bottom line is, it’s the content that hasn’t found appreciation.
Thugs of Hindostan features a star-studded cast with Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in leading roles. The film has been written and directed by Dhoom 3 fame Vijay Krishna Acharya, and produced by Aditya Chopra. [ Also Read : Thugs of Hindostan Review ]
