Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan-starrer fails to impress

Thugs Of Hindostan First Review

Filmed in India, Thailand and off the coast of Malta, it brings together for the first time Amitabh and Aamir, two of Bollywood's most bankable stars, in battles against the British East India Company in 1795, and with stunts and pyrotechnics galore. The characters that populate it are, like the thousand ships that the film launches in the service of a bitter early 19th century battle between the British East India Company and a band of rebels who refuse to be enslaved by a foreign power, are as flimsy as cardboard.

Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh described the film as a "golden opportunity lost".


He also tweeted, #ThugsOfHindostan may reap the benefit of the holiday period + tremendous hype + impressive names in its cast. "All that glitters is NOT gold..." Some engrossing moments in the first hour, that's about it. Formula-ridden plot, screenplay of convenience, shoddy direction are the main culprits'. Starring Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in prominent roles, Thugs of Hindostan is one of the most anticipated releases of the year and has been hogging headlines ever since the film as been announced. But like no other hero in the country, only Bollywood's Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan has credibility and niche market wherein distributors can expect their returns and be on safe side. It will be interesting to see if the film will surpass the day one collection of Sanju to become the top day one earner of 2018.
