Box Office Report: ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ dips further; earns THIS amount


‘Thugs of Hindostan’ was one of the most awaited films of 2018. Unfortunately, it failed to live up to the hype and was panned by critics and audiences alike. As expected, it had a rocking start at the box office, but bad word of mouth publicity resulted in dipping collections.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#ThugsOfHindostan
HINDI:
Thu 50.75 cr, Fri 28.25 cr, Sat 22.75 cr, Sun 17.25 cr. Total: ₹ 119 cr
TAMIL + TELUGU:
Thu 1.50 cr, Fri 1 cr, Sat 75 lakhs, Sun 75 lakhs. Total: ₹ 4 cr
Total: ₹ 123 cr [5000 screens]

Taran also said that the movie might see a further dip in collections as the festive season is over. In our review of the film, we wrote, “As far as the performances are concerned, a talented starcast is let down by a weak screenplay and melodramatic dialogues. There are twists and turns too, but nothing is really unexpected. A major one involving Amitabh Bachchan’s Khudabaksh is plain annoying. Katrina Kaif has a special appearance, and to promote her as one of the film’s leading starcast is plain wrong. Fatima Sana Shaikh has a much meatier role and she does manage to make her action scenes look convincing. Amitabh looks too old to be doing action, but his heavy loaded dialogues do manage to hit the mark. Aamir Khan’s performance is bright and he does manage a great accent and good body language. Yet, some of his expressions look fit for a slapstick comedy like ‘Andaaz Apna Apna’, not a serious action film like ‘Thugs of Hindostan’.”
