Thugs Of Hindostan took an earth shattering opening today across the country and is the eighth bumper opening in the career of Aamir Khan. There is a different definition of bumper between a Dil (1990) and Thugs Of Hindustan (2018) as the days of 95-100% occupancy are long gone unless restricted release. But today even restricted release fails to get occupancy on day one.

Thugs of Hindustan is the 45th release of Aamir Khan and eight of these films have taken a bumper opening. Rang De Basanti had a healthy number which as a number can be called bumper but the capaity potential had really grown in the six months prior to the release of this film which led to occupancy which was not bumper for Rang De Basanti

Amitabh Bachchan also has a bumper opening to his name after a long time with Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham being the last one in 2001. In total there could be 30 bumper openings for Amitabh Bachchan as in the eighties and early nineties it was bumper for nearly every film be it that film eventually turned out to be a HIT or FLOP.

The eight films of Aamir Khan to take a bumper opening are as follows.


1. Dil (1990)

2. Ishq (1997)

3. Mela (2000)

4. Fanaa (2006)

5. Ghajini (2008) - Holiday

6. 3 idiots (2009) - Holiday

7. Dhoom 3 (2013)

8. Thugs Of Hindustan (2018) - Holiday

There are a few holiday releases with 3 idiots, Ghajini and Thugs Of Hindostan but both Ghajini and Thugs Of Hindostan would probably be bumper even if non holiday. 

Ye BOI admin kitna masoom tha dekho kya se kya ho gaya dekhte dekhte..

That's record opener but not bumper due to capacity and hiked ATP. So Boi not missed.


Ofcourse Not Had It Been So BOI Would Have Mentioned About It Like RDB
Its An Omission And BOI Is Used To That


Because mention movies just missed bumper tag but mangal pandey just got excellent opening. Feel the difference man.

I guess aamir only did toh to also have the opening day and weekend records since he has all lifetime records already

answered by Set Designer (2k points)

if zero fails now too then it will be a big setback for the khans since all of them had solo releases on edx


Going by the limited promos promotions and response to the trailer, still great opening


bro today is the best day for collections so bumper opening was never in doubt but this film will not sustain like his previous films the negativity is on par with race 3 and jhms. Audience were expecting something else and they got something totally different


Won't deny that man... i'm aware of that.

Yes but paid negativity Kuch jyada ho gayi hai , intense I am not saying you to watch it now but whenever you will watch this then you agree with my words that there is some agenda , yes may be you didn't like the movie but it was not bad by any means.
