Will Thugs of Hindoston exceed the Box Office Collection of Dangal


Aamir Khan is back with his another heart grabbing movie called as Thugs of Hindostan and the trailer was so catchy. Aamir Khan has a wide number of fans not only in India but from all parts of the world. He is called the perfectionist of the bollywood industry because of the strong scripts and his wonderful execution and dedication to fairly play the role assigned to him. He mostly releases only one movie per year but that only one movie creates records and shakes the box office collection record.

Talking about his previous releases like Dhoom 3, Dangal. They were fabulous and a person can watch them as many times as he wants. He did splendid work to make his movies memorable and great. Another movie which seems like Pirates of Carribean is brought by Aamir Khan named as Thugs of Hindostan. The trailer shook everybody as the perfect amalgamation of big stars is seen in the trailer. Aamir Khan, Big B, Sassy queen Katrina Kaif, Dangal star Fathima Sana Sheikh everyone is in the movie. This movie appears to be filled with lots of entertainment, thriller, and drama. It is Based on Philip Meadows Taylor’s 1839 novel Confessions of a Thug, the movie tells us about a thug named Ameer Ali and his gang, whose nefarious ways posed a serious challenge to the British Empire in India between 1790 and 1805. It runs for a time of 2 hours and 44 minutes.

Fans of Aamir Khan are dying to watch this movie. This movie appears to be the highest grossing among all of the movies of Aamir Khan and Akshaye Rathi who is the film exhibitor said “We have to look at the elements that have come together to make this film – there is Aamir Khan, there is Amitabh Bachchan, there is Katrina Kaif, there is a big scale, there is a production value, it has a company like Yash Raj Films backing it. So even if it doesn’t become the highest Hindi grosser ever, it will certainly become one of the highest Hindi grossers. One factor that can make it the highest grosser or keep it from becoming the highest grosser is the merit of the content,”

“With the same Salman Khan, there has been a Jai Ho, there has also been a Race 3, there has also been a Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Sultan. Salman was the common factor in all these films but the business of each one of these was determined by their entertainment value,” he reasoned.

Thugs of Hindostan has been directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya and is made with a costliest budget of Rs 300 crore.


According to Hindustan Times, the movie is so feeble and not interesting at all. Most of the people have seen Pirates of Caribbean and it matches that overlook. The film appears to be so interesting and story of the pirates but it is totally opposite of what the audience expected. The movie is so unoriginal and Vijay Krishna Acharya has used slow motions in every part of the movie and it resulted out to be so boring. Story of the movie is not portrayed properly.

Katrina Kaif is seen doing sassy dance moves and does not have any remarkable character in the movie. There is no pirate in the movie and Amitabh Bachchan is a soldier protecting India, he always comes with the eagle which makes a creeky sound which is unbearable. Fathima Sana sheik doesn’t appear for approximately one hour. She remains still and not bagged any good dialogue. She is having a small part and still, she has not justified that.

Aamir Khan also not having any remarkable character and dialogues. He is playing the role of thug and which is having dual face. He is an opportunist. Katrina Kaif, on the other hand, is trying to act but she cannot. Her dance steps are good indeed and she gets aroused by the Aamir so fast. She repeats a dialogue twice to get people to notice that.

According to Hindustan Times

An old man sings about imli, Sharat Saxena tries to look valiant, Ila Arun plays a medicine woman, while Mohammad Zeeshan Ayub, who plays Khan’s man Friday, is literally named Saturday. And then — by the beloved beard of Bob Christo — there are the redcoats, hamming it up. The British villain is naturally given the easily despised name Clive, and he speaks to his fellow Englishman in Hindi, even when the two are alone and he’s saying he’ll never understand Indians.

I may be old school, but I believe pirate movies need to have eye-patches. This one doesn’t, and that’s a shame. The viewing experience would have been hugely improved. I should have gone in wearing two.

Taran Adarsh tweeted #ThugsOfHindostan may reap the benefit of the holiday period + tremendous hype + impressive names in its cast… But will find it difficult to sustain after the initial euphoria settles down… #TOH is a golden opportunity lost, a KING-SIZED DISAPPOINTMENT!

He also tweeted #OneWordReview#ThugsOfHindostan: DISAPPOINTING. Rating:All that glitters is NOT gold… Holds true for #TOH… Some engrossing moments in the first hour, that’s about it… Formula-ridden plot, screenplay of convenience, shoddy direction are the main culprits…

The movie is getting worst reviews from everyone and collection of the Thugs of Hindostan will be just because of the festive season and stardom of Aamir Khan and not on the behalf of story and direction. Many unreasonable things happen in the whole movie. Slow motions are so much in the movie and whole movie is based on unrealistic events. According to NDTV “There can be no denying that the film has been well shot. But the rather garish backdrops and the frequently shoddy, unnecessarily flighty VFX undermines the work of cinematographer Manush Nandan. Although the makers of this film have chosen to set the action two centuries ago, both the musical score (Atul-Ajay) and the dance moves smack more of kitschy Bollywood rather than evoking any sense of genuine time and place.”

Dangal was one of the epic movie delivered by the Aamir Khan and was the highest grosser of India and it made its impressions in abroad also. Estimated overseas income of the Dangal was 320 Crores and it can be watched once twice and even more than that. Some people expected that Dangal will be beaten by the Thugs of Hindostan box office collection but according to the reviews, it is clear that people are not going to watch the movie on the theatres after the festive season ends. So this movie emerged out as a big blunder even after having so much stardom.
