Let me just start by admitting that the trailer of Thugs of Hindostan did not do any justice to what the movie looks like till intermission. With Thugs Of Hindostan, the two stalwarts of Hindi cinema, Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan have come together and the sheer magnanimity of the same will leave you overwhelmed.  Director Victor has made sure to make it a visual spectacle with a few scenes especially including the entry scene of Amitabh Bachchan as Khudabaksh, or the action sequences that are going to stay with you. 

The story essentially revolves around Zafira (Fatima Sana Shaikh) who loses her dream castle, her family, her dad, everything to the Firangis, who invaded India and her dynasty, Raunakpur, in the name of friendship. Khudabaksh, the masiya (protector) of the realm, is her guardian and her pillar. On the other hand, Aamir aka Firangi is a flamboyant, selfish and extremely witty kind of a person on face but there are layers to him which the movie keeps exploring throughout. Katrina Kaif (Suraiyya) makes a hit and miss appearance within first half an hour but does nothing much than adding a glam quotient. 

Watching Big B perform those high octane stunts at this age and convincingly so is an exhilarating experience in itself. 

However, the songs of the movie are flat and doesn’t really add much to the story. Also, the choreography is too modern for a film set in 1795. 

Moving over, what really left me a bit disappointed was that very little attention was paid to the dialect and language of the bygone era. It is too colloquial for a period film. The screenplay could have been a little tight and crisp but nonetheless, the movie looks like a perfect masala entertainment till intermission. 

Stay tuned for full review.

This is Aamir's Jab Harry met Sejal and Salman's tubelight & race 3 rolled on one.

Watch it for Amitabh Bachchan. If not a fan, give it a miss. Fatima decent, nothing special, Aamir a sad caricature of jack sparrow and katrina proves yet again that she can only look and dance good, nothing more.

lol times of india gave it a 2.5 out of 5 and you're calling it exhilarating? Oh I got you PV, exhilaratingly bad!

Box office BOMB. It MIGHT make a lot of money, but this is like YRF most expensive movie ever, film budget alone. Then there's all the marketing, and Katrina + Amitabh probably have huge salaries. This will be a bigger loss for Aamir than Tubelight and Harry met Sejal COMBINED.

Thugs is getting negative reviews by all critics and audiences so far still it will get 40 cr at day 1. Reason is aamir stardom and the hike in ticket prices.

It's not bcoz of Amir, it's bcoz of Diwali. TOH is the ONLY release on these holidays, people want to watch movie with their family. And many of them leave the theaters in the middle of the movie. It will be Race3 for Amir

Dont give paid reviews pinkvilla, I have seen the movie first day first show and it is a huge let down. Now post my comment

Yrf wasted money on this one. Nothing was exciting about the movie. Not even the songs. Wonder why aamir did this ?

Thanks, let see what happens.

Thanks, let see what happens.

It's a big flop.

srgay zero fan spotted

Lol songs of the movie are flat. Kat was only good in the item songs but both of her songs are flop. Hello Kat fans, where are you? Didn't you say that her songs will be a hit ? Kat is finished

Wait Kat will be having a hit and miss appearances with over hyped item nos in zero and Bharat too. She is such an embarrassment for her fans. Lol at queen and a superstar .

There were blinds how Kat has 2 songs and 2 scenes and she is happy with it as she knows she will get a hit. But her PR denied it and her fans blamed others PR for spreading lies. On your face

We all know Kat has a 10 min role in khans movies. Pity her fans who are claiming that she is a queen and working with khans in big movies. Haha
