The Vijay Krishna Acharya directorial is the biggest ever Bollywood release as no other films had managed to grab 5,000 screens in India.
Khudabaksh (Amitabh Bachchan) is like a commander who uses some wily tactics to fool the Britishers and loot a ship for his fight.

The only silver lining in the movie are the sets and the production values are of an worldwide level. Holds true for #TOH.

Writing for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee writes about the film: "Big, bloated, bombastic, Thugs Of Hindostan is a period saga that banks exclusively upon action and spectacle for impact".
"Thugs Of Hindostan (HINDI) has destroyed all box records as it collects in the 50 crore nett range on the first day". As per early analysis, Thugs Of Hindostan might be able to break the record of Happy New Year (Rs 44.97 crores) and should open in range of Rs 40-45 crores.
