The final Thugs Of Hindustan figures will be updated later tonight as the final figures come but so far its had a huge advance. The only problem is the industry is becoming about non Bahubali records be it advance or post release and Bahubali is not actually an outright Hindi film.

 

 

So basically its a huge advance if we take Bahubali - The Conclusion out of the picture as that film makes the numbers looks small. The way it started on Saturday with 2 lakh tickets sold on the very first day it looked very heavy as normally each day gets better before hitting a crescendo on the last day. But just like box office collections are hit in pre Diwali there is also some affect on advance sales. If we look back over the last fifty years then some of the biggest films have released on Diwali which have gone onto smash initial box office records but none have advance records barring a Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.

Even with Prem Ratan Dhan Payo it gets the record by a meagre amount and its questionable whether in terms of tickets sold it was a record. The Thugs Of Hindostan scenario led to getting the Diwali facts and figures out and there is no doubt Diwali advances are hit by pre Diwali but it also comes out that if we take out Bahubali - The Conclusion then the advances taken by some of the biggest films today are actually less than films released years back if we take into account the number of tickets sold. The 20 lakh pre sales ticket mark was breached by films in the 80's and thats where the biggest films today are standing also except Bahubali - The conclusion of course.

 

 

Thugs Of Hindustan has an excellent advance in North, East and Central India while Gujarat and South are slower. North is led by Delhi / UP and in the East it is Bihar which is excellent and Assam is also very strong. The three central markets of Rajsthan, CP Berar and CI all have strong sales. Gujarat is lagging and it will the key but this circuit is very weak pre Diwali but then very strong post Diwali for five days. Last year Golmaal Again set a non Bahubali lifetime record in this circuit and that was with hardly any advance. South India could be stronger considering its an Aamir Khan film. Here Bihar is big where Aamir Khan films under perform probably due to the film being that big action masala film.

 

 

The top five films in terms of amount collected pre release are Bahubali - The Conclusion, Avengers - Infinity War, Tiger Zinda Hai, Sanju and Sultan in that order and Thugs Of Hindostan is going to get in there somewhere but it will only known by end of business today.

 

 

In terms of tickets sold the top five are Bahubali - The Conclusion, Tiger Zinda Hai, Sultan, Sanju and Infinity War in that order but here we are looking at just the last year or so as the others have not been calculated in terms of tickets sold. Again Thugs Of Hindustan will be among these lot but hard to say about the position just yet.

 

 

Bahubali - The Conclusion holds the highest opening day at 40 crore nett with around 4.5-5 crore nett business missing as the Hindi version did not release at places. Comparing the advances of Bahubali - The Conclusion and Thugs Of Hindostan it is easy to say that an opening day record has no chance but its that big holiday which will have a big on the day turnout. Also in past history on Diwali, opening records have been set without any advance records.
