The writing is on the wall.    After a record-breaking performance on day 1, Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan’s big-budget film from the Yash Raj Films camp, Thugs of Hindostan, is in freefall. The decline, that was therefore marked on day 2, continuing on day 3.

According to a report in Box Office India, on day 3 the film made an estimated Rs 22.5 to 23 crore, seeing a further decline of 15-20% at the ticket windows, whereas the general 3-day collection now stood at an estimated Rs 100 crore nett plus.

Day 3 and day 4 were expected to be crucial if the film had any chances of reviving its fortunes.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh had sounded the warning bugle on Saturday, once he wrote on Twitter that “Thugs of Hindostan has to show a positive upturn on Day 3 [today], else its property from Day 5 [Mon] onwards will be extremely doubtful…” adding that clearly, the makers and  the film hasn’t lived up to the expectations.

He wrote: “#ThugsOfHindostan has to show a positive upturn on Day 3 [today], else its sustainability from Day 5 [Mon] onwards will be extremely doubtful… One thing is crystal clear: #TOH has NOT met the monumental expectations… The BO numbers are doing  the talking now.”
