In the past, Aamir's films like 3 IdiotsDangal and Secret Superstar have received massive commercial success in the territory. TOH had a record-breaking opening day of Rs 52.25 crores domestically but later witnessed a significant slump, owing to negative word of mouth publicity. The Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan starrer was criticised for its weak story line and direction.

Acknowledging the failure of the TOH, Aamir had previously said, "I want to apologise to my audience also as this time I wasn't able to entertain them. I know people came in theatres with a lot of expectations but they didn't enjoy the film. Audience is free to say what they feel about the film. What I can say is that we certainly tried our level best and I am feeling really bad that we didn't succeed in entertaining the audience. So, next time we will try harder."
