Thugs Of Hindostan starring an ensemble cast of Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif was expected to take a humongous start at the domestic box office thanks to the immense buzz and advance booking. It was released in 5000 screens across India and 2000 screens overseas.
After watching first day first show of TOH, the audience were extremely disappointed with director Vijay Krishna Acharya's poor direction, weak narrative, predictable storyline and boring screenplay.
Disappointed audience termed Thugs Of Hindostan as Bugs Of Hindustan which kept biting them throughtout the film. Though the film received negative reviews, moviegoers appreciated Amitabh Bachchan's role of Khudhabaksh and Fatima Sana Shaikh's warrior avatar in the film. Aamir Khan, however, failed to strike the chord with the audience with his Firangi character and Katrina Kaif's character of dancer Suraiyya was also a big let down.
Now it remains to be seen if Thugs Of Hindostan sustains in the upcoming days as bad word of mouth is likely to affect the total box office collection.
