This year's big release for India's Diwali festival, the seafaring song-and-dance fest with superstars Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan cost US$42 million (RM175 million), making it the most expensive movie to date in the Hindi-language industry.
However, the negative reviews coming in for the film might affect the business of the film at box office.
Apparently not. Twitter is swarmed by unhappy tweets from the audience of its opening shows.
Barring a few positive reviews here and there, the micro-blogging platform is replete with savage reactions to the high-budgeted film.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh has stated this film as totally disappointing.
The price of one ticket goes up to Rs. 1,800 which isn't even the cost of popcorn and pepsi included with the film. All that glitters is NOT gold...
"Thugs of Hindostan may reap the benefit of the holiday period + tremendous hype + impressive names in its cast..." Holds true for #TOH.
Fans troll Thugs Of Hindostan in Alia Bhatt's Raazi style and yes, it's every bit amusing! Some engrossing moments in the first hour, that's about it... Taran Adarsh further added. VFX and fight sequences are very bad! That will eventually give the film a spike in the figures to come.
On the other hand, some of the moviegoers seemed to like the film and called Thugs of Hindostan as a visual feast. As the movie has been leaked online, it will affect the collection rate at the box office.
