Thugs of Hindostan Review:
Thugs of Hindostan movie had every ingredient of being a blockbuster apart from a good story. ‘Baap ki maut ka badla’ is so 90s but revenge thrillers could of this scale could work well if written well. There’s a scene in which Aamir Khan’s Firangi says, “Hume hamesha dhoke ki umeed rakhni chahiye” (We should always expect to get backstabbed) and that’s the hint of how they already had planned to fool us. “Dhoka dena swabhav hai Bollywood ka aur (as Indian audience) bharosa karna hamara.”
Thugs of Hindostan Verdict:
On the whole, Thugs of Hindostan Movie is an extravagant period drama that falls short of expectations in a big way. Even the likes of Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan cannot save the film through their amazing screen presence. The Thugs of Hindostan film has great visuals but those are also not enough for the audience to sit through three long hours of this film which has no emotional connection. The Thugs of Hindostan film might collect some good money at the box office but in totality, it is a massive disappointment from the likes of Yash Raj and Aamir Khan.
