It appears that Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan's magic didn't work at the box office. Their film Thugs Of Hindostan, which opened to poor reviews on Thursday, witnessed a 'drastic fall' on Monday, reports trade analyst Taran Adarsh. The film 'crashed,' he added. On Monday, the Hindi version of Thugs Of Hindostan, earned Rs 5.50 crore while the Tamil and Telugu versions together collected Rs 50 lakh. Thugs Of Hindostan's current total now stands at Rs 129 crore. "Thugs Of Hindostan crashes on Monday. Witnesses a drastic fall. In fact, expect a free-fall on weekdays. Metros/plexes are down to shockingly low levels while mass belt/single screens are falling rapidly. Thugs Of Hindostan is, without doubt, the biggest shocker of 2018," Taran Adarsh tweeted.

In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Thugs Of Hindostan 2.5 stars. "Big, bloated, bombastic, Thugs Of Hindostan is a period saga that banks solely upon action and spectacle for impact. It might entertain large swathes of the audience, but it is ultimately too tacky and unconvincing to lay legitimate claims to being India's answer to Pirates Of The Caribbean. It isn't even a poor copy," he wrote.
Thugs Of Hindostan is directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya and also stars Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in pivotal roles. The film is produced by Yash Raj Films.
