Thugs of Hindostan Review
Thugs of Hindostan directed by Vijay Krishna who had previously directed movies like Tashan and Dhoom 3. Both Tashan and Dhoom 3 produced by YRF and miserably failed in gaining a positive feedbacks from critics as well as the audience. And Thugs of Hindostan is no less than the previous movies.
Thugs of Hindostan is not a copy of Pirates of Carrebian but Firangi Mallah (Aamir Khan) is very much borrowed from Jack Sparrow. No matter though. Aamir Khan worst performance after Tum Mere Ho. And the action sequences in this first half are an incredible amount of fun to watch but remaining actions are in a sequence and the fun gets decreasing because of runtime.
Thugs of Hindostan set in 1857, and at the time of the East India Company is establishing, Raunakpur is few among the few remaining free places. Raunakpur’s ruler Mirzasaab (Ronit Roy) is preparing for a knock out with the East India Company, and its group leader, John Clive (Lloyd Owen). Mirzasaab trusted general Khudabaksh (Amitabh Bachchan) has been appointed delegate with Raunakpur’s prince to gather allies.
A night Clive visits Raunakpur, however, puts paid to those ideas. With his son held hostage by Clive, Mirza hands over control of Raunakpur to the Britishers. But the prince is killed anyway, as is Mirza, and his wife. The only surviving member of the clan is the Princess Safira, who is rescued at the eleventh hour from the grasp of Clive by Khudabaksh.
Eleven years later, we’re introduced to a thug Firangi Mallah (Aamir Khan). A fluent but insincere and shallow talker. Firangi’s uncommon is not to be taken for a lack of seriousness. For he is ruthless when it comes to the question of profit, and not above double-crossing his own colleagues when it comes to earning a pretty hard earned money.
Cast: Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Shaikh Director: Vijay Krishna Acharya Cinematographer: Manush Nandan Editor: Ritesh Soni Producer: Aditya Chopra Screenplay Writer: Vijay Krishna Acharya
The most worst thing about the Thugs of Hindostan is the screenplay writing. TOH most talked about VFX is not up to mark why I am saying because of the bad green screen experience in theatre. And the sequences shot in a day and you can clearly realize it was shot in a day and converted in post-production.
There is no single powerful performance throughout the movie. Most waste garbage is Katrina Kaif, she is only for her legs and item numbers. And Fatima has done everything wrong in this weakly written character. Amitabh Bachchan and his some punchlines are good but you will laugh after leaving the theatre.
Last Word For Thugs of Hindostan: Hattrick of Vijay Krishna Acharya making the third consecutive crap movie.
