Aamir Khan starrer Thugs Of Hindostan took a historic and record breaking opening when it collected 52.25 crore on its 1st day, smashing and exceeding all the expectations. Now, its another test has begun and it will need to show a strong momentum in next few days to ensure a huge lifetime total.
Thugs Of Hindostan has witnessed a drop on its 2nd day. Although it is expected to have a usual drop, as yesterday was a national holiday of Diwali and the film had got the maximum bookings and crowd in the theaters, the drop is looking more than usual; it is unhealthy. This is a worrisome sign for the film.
Thugs Of Hindostan’s 2nd day morning occupancy was 40%, and its overall 2nd day occupancy is around 50-55%, which is a significant drop from its 1st day’s 80-85%. Also, single screens are giving it a thunderous response, especially in UP but multiplexes are not as strong as they were on 1st day.
Negative reviews from critics are showing their effect on the film’s footfalls now. Even the audience who has seen the movie, is not giving a positive recommendation to this Diwali entertainer. All these aspects will hamper the film’s collections on 2nd day as well as in coming days.
Even in evening shows in metro cities, the fill rate for Thugs Of Hindostan is just 55% which is a clear sign that the crowd is staying away from the movie, an unusual thing for an Aamir Khan movie. Night shows may boost its earning but we will have to wait and watch.
Thugs Of Hindostan’s 2nd day box office collection may see a huge decline. It may collect in the range of 28-30 crore, which is also subjected to its sustenance in night shows. If it goes below 28 crore, then it will be a warning sign for YRF as Thugs Of Hindostan won’t even recover its costs.
Thugs Of Hindostan is the costliest film of Bollywood. It needs to earn more than 250 crore to enter the profitable zone. Its opening weekend will give a clear idea whether it will profit or suffer huge losses.
