Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan-starrer records 2018’s highest opening

Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan's much-anticipated film 'Thugs Of Hindostan' has finally hit the theatres. Now the writer-director of Dhoom 3, Vijay Krishna Acharya roped in Aamir Khan for another film, the high profile Thugs of Hindostan and once again the result is mixed, leaning towards really bad.

Thugs of Hindostan (Thugs of Hindustan) got an overwhelming response at the box office on day 1, ensuring a record-breaking collection. The ones who have watched it took to Twitter to slam it resoundingly and also posted an array of amusing memes. The film's primary plot revolves around a band of Thugs led by Amitabh's character Khudabaksh whose motive is to gain freedom for India from the British Raj.

According to industry analyst Taran Adarsh, the film released in a total of 5000 screens in India and 2000 screens overseas.

Writing for DesiMartini, another critic notes, "Aamir is hailed as a perfectionist and the first question you would want to ask him after watching this movie is - where exactly were you when they were reading the screenplay?" But will find it hard to sustain after the initial euphoria settles down. Taran Adarsh tweeted, 'All that glitters is NOT gold. Some engrossing moments in the first hour, that's about it... #TOH is a golden opportunity lost, a KING-SIZED DISAPPOINTMENT!' As per early predictions, Thugs of Hindostan will cross the Rs 100 Crore mark by the weekend. Keeping in view the film's occupancy rate, it indeed looks like a possibility. It remains to be seen in the coming days if it will live up to the hype it has created and if it will do well at the box office.
